If you're looking for a nice hotel that's not expensive and VERY close to shopping, this is it. Starbucks and Trader Joes are steps away. Nordstrom and the Magnificent Mile are 2 blocks away. We stayed for 2 nights this week and walked everywhere while there, without effort. Our room was tiny, but it was hip, clean, and had a... More

My daughter and I recently stayed at this hotel and loved it! Fantastic location, wonderfully warm and helpful staff, and clean and updated rooms. Yes, they may be a little on the small side, but perfect for the two of us. We'll be returning to Chicago soon, and we'll definitely stay at this property again!

2 families spent 2 nights at this hotel. It is a great location, very close to Michigan Ave. and the Magnificent Mile-within a 1/4-1/2 mile to Water Tower in one direction and Millennium Park in the other direction. Pizzeria Uno & due, Trader Joe's are across the street. The rooms are a little small but updated and very doable. The... More

I stayed in this hotel for 3 days in August 2014. Despite being surrounded by many prestigious hotels in the area, I was completely satisfied.

Fantastic location, convenient to the Magnificent Mile, the river, and public transportation. The staff throughout my stay were helpful and welcoming; I had to cancel a credit card while there and they were nothing but accommodating. The rooms, as stated, are a bit small; as a solo traveler, though, this wasn't a problem. The size of the breakfast room was... More

This hotel is in the center of most activity in the Loop. We were able to walk almost to any attraction. The old hotel is nice, staff was very friendly, and the breakfast was more than adequate. The only negative is the size of the rooms. I would not advise more than two people in the room. (we had four).... More

My husband and I were able to get a great deal by booking in advance a couple of months. We loved the location, within walking distance of Willis Tower, Navy Pier, Michigan Ave, etc. The breakfast was wonderful, plenty of choices.

We had been on a Business trip and stayed for 5 nights in the last week of July. Would rate this as one of the best downtown hotels and real value for money, with ever friendly front office staff. It had all necessary amenities, free wifi, complimentary breakfast (a good spread too!) We were happy to see a coffee maker,... More
