I was in Chicago to attend a conference. The hotel was clean, but if you are looking for a lot of amenities, this is not the hotel for you. The internet in the room worked very well and I was walking distance from most everything. The hotel is in a great location. Most restaurants or shopping areas were within less... More

the best thing about this place is the location and it offers free parking. elevator was a little slow and we kept having problems with the key. Had to go down and have them done repeatedly. the property is a little dated but it was clean and the rooms are huge especially by chicago standards. a great Blues bar right... More

First of all, I'd like to make it clear that the one star rating is only for the facility itself. The staff was very friendly and professional. Aside from the friendly staff, this hotel has a great location and the complimentary wifi is a welcome feature as well. However, here is what's wrong with this facility - during my first... More

The hallway carpeting needs to go....smelled SO BAD!! Other guests talked of it passing in the hallways also. It would be very nice to have a refrig and microwave in the rooms also. Staff was very accommodating in any and all requests and services.

The staff was great! When we arrived, the person at the desk said that the nightly rate had decreased since the reservation had been made, and he switched us to the new rate. The smoke detector in the first room we had would not stop chirping, and when maintenance could not fix it, they moved us immediately to another, bigger... More

We enjoyed staying in your hotel very much. The employees were very helpful and very friendly. We felt very comfortable as if we were visiting friends. The location was great and beautiful area. Any questions that we may have had, your employees were always there to help us.

We like to stay in the downtown areas of cities when we travel. Not having to drive to attractions is the main reason and staying at this hotel was perfect. Easy to get to from the interstate and free parking was a huge bonus. The hotel is old & beautiful. Our room had very high ceilings, old style black and... More

I loved the view but it was a small room.to have upgraded to a lake view room. Didn't have trouble with parking and was close to all the shopping needs that we wanted. . The museum was close and so was shied aquarium.

Not the Hilton but not $250 bucks a night either, it was a nice place to stay and was a reasonable rate, I will stay again when in town. They were painting the insides and fixing the place up, we stayed in the first part of May 2015 so I'm sure they are done by now.
