Perfect Chicago location

We enjoy this spot in Chicago. It's near everything on Magnificent Mile, the staff is always accommodating and friendly. Rooms are quiet,clean and spacious. Rates are usually reasonable in relation to others in area. Easy walk to Wicker Park, Old Towne.

Convenient location

Great location for a quick gateaway weekend, however the quality of the room was a little questionable, stains on the carpet, dirty bed drape. The temperature of the room is controlled with a AC/HEAT function but even AC seemed like the room was blowing warm air, made it very stuffy, no curtains on the window, only drapes, construction crew outside seems to be interested in the activity in the room.

Fantastic location, ok room

We paid extra to have a guaranteed view and it was good, but it was also square in front of a construction site. For only 2 of us and 1 short king bed, the room was still small. Hairs in the bathtub when we first checked in... no mini fridge in the room, had to ask for one- which we never did and managed without. Location was absolutely perfect to bike anywhere from and they valet parked our bikes and never seemed bothered by us asking to have our bikes retrieved. However, as we checked in, I (a female) had made the reservations and the credit card used to book the hotel was in my name. I was the one checking us *my boyfriend and myself) in, but as the hotel employee handed us the room keys and gave us the details of the room, he handed the keys to my boyfriend and spoke just to him- ignoring me. Maybe I'm sensitive but it definitely put me off. If you're not planning on spending a ton of time at your hotel but still want a pretty nice place to come back to at night, this is the spot!
