Pros: Proximity to subway and Willis Tower. Free breakfast with make your own waffles, free wifi, friendly kitchen staff. Cons: Pool way too small to enjoy, gets crowded fast. Was given a "bigger" room but we needed two beds, instead one bed and sofa that was not made up and sheets didn't fit. Had to ask for sheets 3 times... More

I stayed here for work and found the hotel to be very quiet and accommodating. I far prefer this hotel to The Allegro a few blocks away as the rooms are larger and more modern. It's connected to Argo Tea which is one of the best cafés in the city. The complimentary breakfast was much better than anticipated and had... More

Thanks for providing a warm haven downtown on a cold weekend. I felt safe and comfortable at a downtown location with good food options nearby, open on a Sunday night. Easily accessible to business locations in the Chicago Loop.

The hotel was convenient to Union Station. Rooms clean and comfortable. WiFi was good. Just need to inform customers that breakfast was included and where the breakfast room was. Noodle shop convenient. Did not know about Tea and coffee cafe that was attached.

Upon my arrival, stay and departure all of the staff were pleasant and helpful. Our rooms was clean and neat. My grandchildren, wife and our adult children had a good time swimming in the pool and just hanging out at the hotel after our busy day running around the City. Our breakfast was good and the workers were very helpful.... More

Founds this hotel a few years ago. Very close to Union Station (you can walk it) and delighted with the comfort of the bed and freshness and cleanliness of the room. Across the street are a Starbucks, and a Potbelly. Next door is a pasta place. You are a block from the "L". Very convenient to get North without needing... More

I stayed for two nights after getting a great deal on this hotel from Hotwire. It's in a great location inside The Loop, just a short walk from the L train. The area is less interesting than the Magnificent Mile but very accessible. The hotel is in great condition but I found the rooms to be a little sterile and... More

The room has ventilation fan which was so loud. I could not sleep that night!. The price is expensive and that could be because of the location. The location is great. It is close to every thing. You should know that you have to pay for the parking as any hotel in Chicago downtown.

My family and I arrived here for a quick one night stay on Friday, Jan 2nd 2015. We arrived much earlier then check-in time and asked if our room was ready. The gentleman at the front desk (I wish I would have gotten his name.. but he was working at 11:30 am on this day) was so friendly and told... More

Overall great stay, and they are military friendly so thumbs up for that, the breakfast isn't all that but waffles are pretty good. The interior of the room was dated like something from the 70s with the oranges and brown like tones. The elevators have a cool security feature though.
