For a quick stay in the city when you don't mind not being too close to things it's a good value. It's on a bus line but not close to the train stop so you'll have to drive or take a cab to downtown. The free parking is an added bonus but its first come first serve so you may... More

I do not care much about the looks of a hotel. I just ask for a clean bed and bathroom and I am happy. This hotel did not even deliver that. The front desk personnel was unfriendly, pillows and sheets were dirty and smelly, the sofa had several stains, the little table had something yellow and sticky that I don't... More

I visited a few friends in Chicago and found this hotel on Hotwire. It is not the most luxurious hotel but more than met my needs of a good place to sleep and shower. The front desk and staff were excellent and pleasant. Location were very good especially if you are seeing soldier field, etc.

If you have are seeking good value and have a car and expect to use it, while visiting Chicago, this hotel is a very good choice. Keeping in mind that this is not a hotel aimed at the high-end consumers, the property hits the right marks for a value-oriented traveler: free parking, comfortable accommodations, cleanliness, and safety. Some spots on... More

Booked through hot wire and got a good price. Front desk personnel were friendly and helpful. Room was spacious but in need of a better cleaning of the bathroom and some new paint. We felt comfortable walking around the neighborhood during the day. It is a haul from downtown, Northerly Island, etc .... Free parking made it worth it.

Booked on Hotwire, but was priced well on kayak. Was looking for low cost, including parking. This hotel is literally on State street, which makes bus at front door. Less than 25 minutes to get to your day trip for family... Millennium park, short walk from state to Shedd Aquarium, 35 minutes directly to Navy Pier! We drove, but could... More

Came into town July 25-27. Convenient to stay to be near the McCormick Center, not convenient if you plan on the Miracle Mile or Navy Pier if you don't plan on driving yourself or taking public transportation. Hotel lobby was nice, rooms were decent. The only complaints I have is the coffee is horrible in the hotel restaurant & little... More

Dear Dawni50, Thank you for taking the time to review our hotel. Though I am glad you enjoyed our value we offer guests, I am disappointed to learn of your unpleasant experience with our coffee.

Let me start w/the good. Yolanda at the front desk who checked me in was very warm & friendly & helpful. But after that things went downhill fast! Jack at the front desk was the complete opposite when I called down from my room to ask a question. Rude, impolite, disrespectful. He said he was new, but acting like that... More

I spent several nights at SLH. When I arrived I was informed that the only available room (although my order was made several months in advance) was the one reserved for the disabled.
