Hotel is overall very good. The only thing disappointing was the last day there. I was checked out already and came back to pick up our bags in storage. I asked to use the restroom and the guy at the desk said he didn’t have the key and someone else had it and is currently down there. He said you can go down there and try to catch them. So I did, the other person let me in. But after I used the restroom, I was lock from the inside. Luckily I had my cell phone and had my brother get the key. Overall the guy at desk should have been more clear the door locks from both side and the persons that let me in should also of said something. If you ever use the restroom on the bottom floor make sure you have a key and cell phone. You can be stuck there.

Very cute hotel in an excellent location in River North! Short walk to the Loop and Magnificent Mile, and only a couple blocks from a subway station. The lobby is hip and well decorated, and the hotel staff was very friendly and personable and helpful. Loved that there is a coffee shop in the hotel lobby...just wish that there was a discount provided to hotel guests. The room was small (but not uncomfortably small) but very nice with a large bathroom. Only complaint with the room was that there is no closet and that the coat rack is directly above the table (not enough room to hang coats and shirts). Overall, I enjoyed my time and would stay here again!

Hotel was vey nice and clean and the front desk staff was very helpful

Comfortable bed, very quiet floor, excellent staff. Will definitely stay again!

Great place. Close to everything. Wonderful staff.

Staff and manager were incredibly helpful and cooperative when I had to rearrange plans last-minute. Room was much better than I expected for a hostel-type hotel, would definitely recommend!

Clean, good location, fast check in and check out. Good experience overall

Great location, great price, good parking price. The staff was helpful and friendly! My only complaints would be that the walls seem to be very thin, and the view out the window was other windows. But it worked well for us; exactly what we needed for a ladies day away trip!

Really nice place to stay & great location. Very clean & very comfortable. It was a weekend so the noise from the street made it a little difficult to sleep but I would definitely stay there again.

All staffs are super nice, room is spotless. They have a big kitchen and water filter, it’s so convenient if you want to cook some food or just have takeout and eat in the kitchen.

Room are very clean and bed are very comfy, people are super nice ( special thanks to Nick, Alex, and Cody)

Much beyond what I expected, very clean and room are bigger, people(Nick & Cody)are very nice and helpful! It’s wonderful place, highly recommend

Ok place for short stay. No closet but did have iron and board

I would definitely stay here again. When my request for a lower bunk was unavailable I was immediately upgraded to a double room with a private shower. Huge shower, hot water, and comfortable large towels. When I say a double room I mean ALL to MYSELF! I had trouble finding a close parking option. One employee was generous enough to take me to a $10 per 12 hour lot nearby. A covered garage a little nearer was $23 per 24 hours. Except if the car is taken out two hours later the whole day starts over next time you drove the car back in. Effectively costing $46 for two hours. When I fell and badly bruised my knee I needed ice. But, I had none. When I told the folk at the front desk ice was delivered to my room already bagged. The beds were clean and incredibly comfortable. There were plenty of electrical outlets including, multiple USB outlets. Each level of bed has their own sets of outlets. Upper bunks are accessed by stair. There is a flat screen TV in each room and a 70 inch flat screen in the downstairs guest lounge. In the guest kitchen there are two full ovens with gas ranges. Two large refrigerators for your own use. A beautifully appointed restaurant will open soon next door. Literally, it will share a door with the Found Hotel.
