3.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

We really enjoyed our stay. It was a great location from everywhere we wanted to visit.

I booked this because I got a promo offer by Orbitz for $80 a night. Would not book it at the regular rate of $140/night. Also i eent there for a conference and this hotel was ob shuttle route. Overall a 3 star hotel. The bar is open only in the evening so u can't go and get a drink. Also it shows nice photos of the rooftop terrace but I went there and they had no chairs or tables as shown in photo. Just a terrace attached to a room. They should turn it to a rooftop bar, that would help a lot.

We tried this hotel because of the location and the price. The location is excellent. You are within a few minutes walking distance of all major sites. The hotel is also situated near some very good restaurants as well. The staff is what makes this hotel so great. Everyone was very pleasant from the front door staff to the cleaning crew. The bar staff in the lobby was very friendly and kept us entertained for hours. The only reason I gave the overall score a four is the rooms are pretty small. It is not so much the room but the bathroom. We had a family of three in a double bed room but the bathroom only had a pedestal sink. We could have used a bit more counter space. The problem is that the bathroom is so small, I don't think there is any way to add any counter space. We didn't spend much time in our rooms so it was not a major concern. Overall, the hotel was a great deal in our mind. I know that I will consider this place again for my future trips to Chicago.

We did enjoy our stay. The hotel is nice and the staff is very friendly. It is a hotel that has a very nice lobby. The rooms are nice but could use some improvement. We did only have 1 working light bulb and there is a great lack of outlets to plug in electronic devices. The mattress was not very comfortable to us. The price was unbeatable and that was important to us. With that being said we did enjoy our stay and the hotel.

Overall great, except that the elevators hold 1/3rd of a person each, and the ouydoor area on the 22nd floor seems to be just a normal roof with a safety glass wall around it. Largely inhabited by smokers.

Decent room in a great location. Certainly well worth the price.

Room was pretty small and dark. A bit old, some obvious bathroom mold. But generally clean. Staff was attentive. Location was great! Price was great.

Dirty, no heat in room, bathroom mirror was old and couldn't look into it. Carpet and curtains were gross . I was very unhappy

Hotel staff was very friendly and helpful. Room was a good size. Hotel is located right off of the main strip of stores. Overall a nice Hotel at a good price.

Easy to locate and staff very helpful. The room though small meet our needs. Nice to be able to make coffee in the room.

If you're looking for a cheaper room in Chicago, it's ok. No frills. Carpet is stained & worn. The staff is great!

Very nice, I will stay there again. The rooftop deck was so nice to end the night and meet new people. My only complaint is the elevators were very slow. A small first world struggle.. ;)

nice place.....loved the roof top.....nice coffee shop

Turned the ac up to make it a little warmer in my room and in the heater cut on. The fumes from the unit was really bad. Had to move rooms and they gave me a double which was much smaller. It's an older hotel and I also got athletes foot from stepping on the floor

Price is a little high for value, but location made it bearable.

The convenience of the location was the best part of it all. Only a 15 minute walk to the Navy Pier and about the same to the red line. The room was sufficient. Definitely not luxurious or anything but did the job. The room was small as was the bathroom but again sufficient. The wifi was terrible. I had 2 teens who were jonsong hard for Starbucks and not for the coffee. They wanted the free wifi lol. Overall the hotel did what I needed it to do, gave me a place to lay my head at night.

The bed was the worst I've tried to sleep on, the bathroom ceiling had patches all over it, my son could have done a better job fixing the drywall. The bathroom was dirty. This was by far the worst hotel stay for me ever. Would not recommend to anyone. Even if they gave it to you for $50 it's a bad deal. (Stay away)

Room was on the small side. A little outdated. Staff was awesome. I would stay there again.

This was a bit disappointment once we left the lobby. The rug in the hallway on our floor was ripped and old. The walls were about the same. The room was very small, dingy, and the window was small. The bathroom had only one bar of soap and you had to transfer it from the sink to the tub. The bed was soft and both people rolled to the middle. We would have left immediately if we had not paid in full.
