Standard Club...slightly above standard.

Great customer service and focus with great work out facilities, which, as a business traveler, I really appreciate. They've got a lap pool, indoor basketball court, comprehensive weight room, sauna, steam room, etc. The decor and feel are a little dated i.e. 1960's country club and stuffy (they demand a dress code), the location works for easy access to the Chicago business district. For the price and location, it's above average. If you want a more high end feel, the W is close by at 2X the price.

Great Find!

Our stay was unfortunatley quite short...checked in around 8:30 pm and out midmorning, the next day. As a result, we didn't even have a chance to check out the pool,fitness center and dining rooms; which all appeared on the website to be beautiful. If our room was any indication though, they definitely were first class. Our room was spotless and the furnishings and amenities were lovely. The staff was very friendly and helpful. Definitely look forward to returning for a longer stay.

Incredible value

The Standard Club was excellent and a cost-effective way for a single person or couple to stay right in downtown Chicago. The staff was friendly and helpful, the surrrounding area safe and the hotel seemed to have good security, and the room very clean and quiet.

Great place

From the moment I stepped out of the taxi to the moment I walked through the doors to leave, the staff was very enthusiastic, helpful, and friendly without being overbearing. The room was large, clean, and quiet, although the bed was not especially comfortable. The mattress was a bit lumpy and the pillows thin, but that's a minor nitpick.
