Great location and value

I was very happy with my decision to stay here. The room was clean, the bed was comfortable. Yes it's pretty basic but I couldn't have asked for more at the price I paid. I would definitely recommend someone stay here.

Great deal for The Magnificent Mile

Great location and friendly, helpful staff, especially Mike. The room had been updated and was large and nice. Microwave and refrigerator was a plus. The bathroom needs updating though. Tile & tub had been painted beige and was peeling. The toilet tank cover had been broken and glued back together. The price and location can't be beat!!!

low value for money

Great location, its true. But for the price you pay the rooms are not worthy. Carpets are old, doors and walls have chips allover, staff is also badly trained. Just an old hotel at a good location that overcharges a bit.

Great if you're not looking to stay indoors all day

I was here on business, and my wife and I wanted to have a good night out. So we did--and the hotel is perfect for that. It has a great location (I'd even suggest that if you're new to the area, check out Groupon for some good deals--and you'll find plenty of things nearby). I'd recommend this hotel for a quick stay, but not for a longer one, or if you're coming not-for-pleasure.

Use a Groupon, or ask the front desk to find cool things to do. Walk over to the boardwalk too, it's pretty impressive at night.

Needs Improvement

The door to the bathroom broke, pillows were hard, room was small and key card was deactivated prior to departure time. Price was high for overall experience. The location was great.

Kindof icky

Location was like everyone said, perfect. One block from Michigan Ave and next to Capital Grill. Small/decent lobby, not the friendliest staff. Small elevators and hallways. Not sure what this building used to be but it was just ok. Bathroom was old, smelled like standing water and the sink was gonna fall off. Could be a super cute bathroom with some paint and common maintenance. Dirty floor, not scrubbed shower, bed had hairs in it and burn holes. Did have a coffee maker (no sugar or creamers), microwave, and mini fridge that was nice. Wouldn't stay here again.
