Great Deal

Great location. Room is small but very well and cleverly laid out, so that even with a big bed and a business desk, there's room to get around, and you don't feel cramped. Beautifully, stylishly and tastefully decorated, clean, attractive and comfortable. For the price, I was exceptionally pleased with this deal.

Great location and hotel

The location of the hotel is perfect. It is just meters from the magnificiente mile and a couple of blocks from millenium park. The hotel itself is very good. Rooms are very new and clean.

Great location

Attentive staff, great location, accessibility to all local shopping and restaurants. A little difficult to navigate to by car.

Good value, Great Location

Yes, the rooms are small. However the rooms are very efficient and have what you need....modern bathroom fittings and furnishings, a comfortable bed, good climate control, and a nice desk. It would have been nice to have a bigger TV, but we didn't book a hotel in downtown Chicago to watch TV. There isn't a microwave or fridge, but that wasn't a big deal for us. There was a nice in-room coffee maker. What really sells this hotel is the location - easy walking to Michigan Avenue shopping, State Street shopping and the river is at your doorstep (and a Starbucks just down the block). We didn't try the connected cafe/pizza place in the hotel but it looked like it was doing a good business. The other things we liked about the hotel was very reasonable overnight valet parking compared to most other hotels (about half their rate); and free wi-fi. This makes the reasonable hotel rate (for a downtown hotel) even better. Finally, some reviews have had mixed experiences with the staff but our check-in and check-out was very fast and with a very friendly staff member and any staff in the halls always smiled and said hi, so no complaints there.
