Great location, nice people, bad wifi

Others have mentioned its unbeatable location, so I'll add to that, saying the front office staff were friendly (and casual). It was not loud, either from the traffic or from the guests. The cons were: the wifi, which didn't work for 4 out of my 5 days, seriously cutting my productivity the shower only channeled half the water (the other half continued to come out the spigot regardless of my efforts) and the cleaning crew was eager to know if I 'really' wanted my room cleaned each night. There also is no table or desk - no working space at all. So, not for the business traveler or anyone who needs to get stuff done. Great if you're a tourist or a field trip (who does not plan on eating in the room while working).

Bare Bones Business Bed

There were renovations happening at the time--however, the WiFi was out of service, the bathroom was in shabby shape, the HVAC system was not working properly, and the carpet was wet. The location was good and the staff was polite and professional.

Terrible

Uncomfortable. Front desk was complaining. Why do I have to deal w/ a 1.64 safe charge. Just don't charge me.

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.

Do NOT stay there!

Maid only cleaned room first of four days. Put new linen others, but no new coffee or hand lotion. Had to go down to front desk for more. WiFi was a "joke". Went in and out every few seconds. Elevator is small and slow. TV channel control did not work most times. Had to push buttons several times. Front desk did not know how to get channels with a dash in their number...said just use up/down button! Limited "Intelligent" programs. For $300 a night sure expect the BEST of everything! Typically with the maid problems normal get at least one night refund but they only offered me a pitense off! Only good thing was the location.

Safe, Secure, Clean, Comfortable, AWESOME STAFF!

I'm not fancy but this hotel checked off all the important boxes where I am concerned. This hotel is Safe, Secure, Clean, Affordable, centrally located, with an unbeatable staff! The staff went above and beyond to help this exhausted traveler check in asap! The shower and nap allowed me to enjoy my limited time in Chicago! Trader Joes is right down the street which meant eating healthy on the cheap, starbucks and dunkin doughnuts are across the street with awesome hours and good coffee. Its a short bus ride or about a mile walk to the blue line for affordable train ride to Chicago O'Hare. They have safes in the room for important documents and what have you. Will definitely stay here again!

Money-saving tip: Short walk from hotel

Cabs are pricey, the CTA (subway and trains) are awesome. Chicago people are amazingly friendly and helpful! Just ask nicely!!
