We stay at this hotel whenever we come to Chicago in February for Moody's Founder's Week conference. They give a wonderful discount and their service is excellent. It's clean and even has a pool. The shuttle picks you up right outside for all the meetings. We usually see many friends at this hotel who are attending the same conference. Very... More

We chose this because it was close to our conference location, the price was great, and there was a shuttle to our conference. We were very pleased over all. The hot water pressure was adequate, but a little on the low side. I was amazed at how many restaurants are in this area now! Parking was adequate but cramped. There... More

Our room appeared to be recently updated. It was very adequate, clean and attractive. It was very convenient for getting to the conference at Moody. Construction was going on throughout the day updating other rooms on our floor, but the noise and dust was minimal. I would stay here again.

This is the second time we have stayed at this location. The staff was friendly and helpful. The location is perfect. We could walk to the American Girl store, Gino's East, Maggiano's, the Hard Rock Cafe, the Rain Forest Cafe, different shopping centers and restaurants, etc. The only thing I was disappointed about is that they are now charging $25/night...

My family has stayed at this property for over twenty years. In the past we tolerated the paper thin walls and lack of updates because it is in a great location and the parking was free. Well, no more. Now you pay for parking and the hotel is undergoing some much needed updates. The staff are mostly pleasant, but we... More

This is a great hotel if you want to be located near the center of the city and not spend a lot of money. Hotel is not very fancy, but offers a pool and observation deck. Staff is helpful and request for additional blankets and pillows was resolved promptly. Parking is available at the hotel lot which is handy and... More

It is located very close to the Manificient Mile. Many food and shopping nearby. I rarely use all the amenities in a hotel so this is perfect. My room was very large and comfortable. The price was very reasonable. There is no bar or restaurant on site.

I stay here whenever I'm in Chicago. It is so convenient to downtown; you can easily walk anywhere. The rooms are comfortable, clean and the value is tremendous. The staff have been very helpful - it's my first pick when I stay in Chicago.

This was my second year at this hotel to celebrate my birthday. The location is PERFECT! They have been doing renovations, and the place is looking very modern. They are now charging for parking, but it is worth it, as I feel safe when I need to go to my car. There is always someone out there in the parking... More
