Good deal for the price

We were just looking for a place to stay for the Chicago Rock n Roll Half Marathon, without breaking the bank. The hotel was in a good location and we didn't need a car. We were able to take the train from the airport to the loop. The air conditioner didn't seem to work properly and the room was warm, which made it difficult to sleep. Rooms are small and it's an older hotel. Staff was pleasant and helpful. For the price it was a good deal.

Sightseeing tip: Short walk from hotel

Most attractions were within walking distance. I'm a walker, so walking a mile is no problem. The bus and train stops are close by too. Wouldn't bother with a car, because you have to pay for parking.

Alright...

I would only recommend this hotel if you just need a place to sleep and you are not going to spend any time here.. It was not the grossest hotel I have been in, however it could have definitely been a lot cleaner. I would also not bring a family here.

Economic Stay

When you walk in the room, you get exactly what you should expect at a hotel. A comfortable bed, a tv, and a desk with chair. The room was bare bones, but do you really need anything else? No, you should be out enjoying everything that Chicago has to offer. For the price, a wonderful stay, and the location was excellent.

Good Weekend Getaway

Perfect location in the heart of all the festivities. Just minutes from all the fun and shopping. The hotel staff was very helpful in serving as a guide and offering recommendations. Would stay here again when I come back in town.

good place for the guys

The previous reviews said it all. The rooms are dated and spartan. The location is great though. I would never stay here with girlfriend but it was good for the guys and boozing.

Friends visiting the city.

We were only in Chicago for a couple of days and wanted to see some art and architecture as well as being near Millenium Park and the lake. The location of this hotel was fantastic for our needs. We walked to all these things, as well as to shops and cafes. There is a useful little cafe attached to the hotel for breakfast. Staff were helpful and friendly and although the decor was a bit tired, for our needs it was fantastic value.

Amazing staff!

The hotel wasn't anything special, very little amenities, average hotel at best. But when you factor in the great, helpful, polite, and caring staff you have a very good experience. I don't remember his name other than I think it started with a P, lol, but thank you Mr. P at the front desk. You made our trip that much better, and brightened a hectic day. And your recommended restaurant was AMAZING. The pizza and staff at Lou Malnati's was excellent.
