A fabulous location close to everything you need, great restaurants, the subway and some good bars I would highly recommend a stay here.

Liked the location. Close to many things. Bed was uncomfortable and pillows were horrible. Very basic hotel. Wouldn't recommend to my friends or family.

Very convenient location. Close to restaurants, bars and landmarks

The room smelled fresh as soon as I opened the door! Very clean inside. Nice comfortable bed. Location is near everything that is within walking distance. Staff was nice.

This was my third stay at this property. Staff was very friendly. The layout of the room really suits me, and the location is very convenient for my needs, too.

Large room with nice view. Terrific location. Friendly staff.

Great location, many nearby restaurants and walking distance to the Riverwalk.

Location is AMAZING, super convenient to Clark/Lake CTA stop, great neighborhood, and lots to do. The actual hotel room wasn’t super impressive but no need to spend a lot of time there. Very comfy beds.

An amazing space. Great room. One thing that wasn’t so great was the housekeeping staff waking me up just before 8 to ask when I would be checking out. This person didn’t leave after I explained before my check out time. I had to give a actual time I was expecting to check out before she left. Was extremely off putting before my coffee or waking up.

It seemed really run down. The people at the front desk seemed a little clueless, I asked one of them for a plastic bag for ice and she asked me what color and shape, the one I had was. When we checked in there was a concussion with our reservation. They had our reservation for 1 night, but we were staying 2 nights. She also said I didn’t have to leave a credit card for incidentals, because someone had already checked in and gave a credit card. That didn’t happen, but it was fine with me. I know it’s really hard to get workers these days. But it seemed more like a training issue. I also thought the hotel smelled bad. Also they put the hand sanitizer in front of the elevator panel to press the room floor. And every time someone pressed a button their arm got sanitizer on it. Bad location.

The property was okay. It’s a great location but the rooms were pretty small. In full transparency, my biggest issue was that when we arrived we were told we needed to pay an early check-in fee which wasn’t disclosed anywhere and they had a pipe burst and were doing significant work in the lobby so it made it impossible to wait there if we wanted to. Other than that the property is okay- not great, not horrible.

Thin walls. Lots of noise from outside, adjacent rooms, and hallway. Friendly staff. Convenient and good walking location to ROW parking garage.

Room was very well laid out. Large windows, floor to ceiling with nice views, room darkening shades that were easy to use

Right on a main street, able to walk to many different places.

It was convienent to where I needed to go.

The unique style of the building was nice.

Nice
