Great location for city weekend

Location is central to the sights and shopping that Chicago has to offer. My wife and I were able to walk to Michigan Ave (1 block away), Navy Pier via the river walk (25 min), Millennium Park (15 min), Art Institute (25 min), and the museum campus with the Field Museum (50 min). Next door is a nice breakfast location. Hotel meet our needs as we only used it for a place to sleep.

Room the size of a closet

The room was not much bigger than a closet, other than that it was fair....

Excelent location

The hotel is very well located, just steps away from Michigan Avenue. Both subway and bus stops are a very short walking distance. Room is small, but clean and comfortable. Overall I felt that staying in this hotel was a good value.

Perfect Location, Beautiful View

The location of this hotel was within walking distance of everything a "tourist" would want to see -Great downtown vibe, the Chicago River steps away from the front door, and friendly staff. The only complaint would be the bed, which wasn't as comfortable as what one would expect, and there wasn't much shower pressure - but theses are minor things compared to the overall wonderful experience of a long weekend in the city. We would stay here again.
