Location is great. However now they charge for parking and no free breakfast. Stay on the upper floor as the remodel didn't help the thumping noise heard from other floors. Hotel's newly remodeled check in area is nice and clean and parking is now $25.00 per day with a safe parking area. 2 blocks to the El and many restaurants... More

This hotel was perfect for our trip. My husband and I wanted a weekend trip away with another couple. We settled on this hotel due to price and location, and were very happy that we did! The hotel was super easy to get to off the highway. They have on-site parking (for an extra fee) but it was very convenient... More

Excellent value for the money, and a great location, within walking distance of lots of bars and restaurants. It's close to the hop-on hop-off bus routes, so very easy to do lots of sightseeing. We enjoyed our stay very much. The pool area is very nice.

This hotel was in a great location. The hotel was very clean and the staff was very friendly and helpful. They sell tickets for different tours at the front desk and will make a reservations for you on some of the tours. This was very helpful. Some reviews have posted that parking is free, but it isn't. It's $25/night which... More

Nice location, clean room, and most of the staff was friendly. Also cheap parking for downtown Chicago! The air conditioner worked well, but it was a little loud. The staff at check in was great, but not so great at check out.

If you are a foodie, this is the place for you! So many choices, so little time. The hotel is nice. Rooms are pretty small but that is not uncommon downtown. Price for parking is really good. $25.00 for 24 hours. Check out the roof top deck. Very peaceful on a warm summer's night!
