Recent guest reviews

We lived the friendly staff, spacious rooms and overall feel. It was located near everything and Menella at the bar was fantastic!

Experience was OK. Because this is a new hotel I expected more. The staff was OK.

Great hotel, perfect location, and excellent rooms

Great location, friendly staff and convenient parking nearby.

I loved the hotel and my daughter which is 1 and half enjoyed it too. The pool was a bit cold so we couldn’t swim with her but other then that it was definitely a blast. I wish they had free parking or i wish the price wasn’t so high for parking if you’re staying. Overall you would love it here. The staff was amazing!

Awesome hotel! They made us feel welcome including our dog and our puppy loved being spoiled as well!! Highly recommend for people traveling with pets. Very modern and comfortable place, we loved it. All the staff was very helpful and kind. We stayed a week and are on our second week and have not had one bad staff member!

Good hotel, walking distance to shopping in Chicago

Great Location, somewhat friendly staff. Bar staff was a little overwhelmed. Also, the shower hot water did not get hot. The sink would get very hot, but the shower was just above room temp, which was disappointing being that it was 28 degrees outside.

Great location ,friendly staff, nice looking lobby area/bar. Negatives: Room doesn’t have a closet there is a little rack with 4 hangers to hang a shirt anything longer will hit the coffee pod machine. If your room is warm make sure the room AC unit is working. We can back after dinner, our room was 78 degrees and 45 degrees outside. It was late so we dialed down the AC unit and went to sleep only to wake up sweatballs because the room never cooled. Long story short we had to wait until 7am for the engineer to arrive. He knew instantly what the issue was. There is this what looks like would be the door to your room closet but it is the housing for the ac unit. He explained that when someone opens the door it trips/unplugs the AC unit ... So in a matter of minutes it was up and running but made for an uncomfortable 1st night. The bar we went for drinks and I ordered the a cocktail from their specialty menu. Rather than making it with the name brands listed on the bar menu . I watched the bartender sub the name brand listed on the for all the low end knockoffs but I was still charged the same price. In summary if you want a clean hotel in close proximity to Mag mile this is an ok option.
