Great Location for the Price

This hotel is in a great location, can walk or grab a bus to anywhere in the city from here. Lots of great restaurants and bars nearby. The staff was very helpful and friendly, however the room was amazingly small with only one 10'by 14' mirror in the whole room. Also the elevator was extremely small and a little 'iffy'. Over all though we would probably stay there again.

Good price for the location

You get what you pay for. Had I paid this amount outside the city it would have been much nicer. However with that being said the location is great for that amount of money. Place just needs some work done to improve things.

Vacation

Front desk staff were great and very helpful with suggestions on places to eat and things to do in the city. The room was ok. Bathroom needed to be cleaned daily. Bathtub and sinks were not clean.

Hotel Location Great

This hotel is located one block from Michigan Avenue and we were able to walk to most of the places we wanted to see. It was also one of the few that were in our price range. On the down side, it is in need of a face lift and some of the staff could use some PR training. We did deal with one male employee that was very pleasant and helpful. We were only in our room to shower and sleep so it worked out fine, but if you are looking for a more elegant place to stay this would not be for you.

Great location, not much else

Good deal and great location. But lobby and room very small. Our (2) double bed room was just that - only enough room for one person to walk around. 2 large cobwebs between wall/ceiling and bathroom (also very small) not all that clean. Slow elevator. Valet parking ($44 + tip) worked very well, fast. Beds were fairly comfortable.

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.

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.

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.
