My friends and I stayed here for 4 days while we were in town from Virginia for a Bears game(Dec 2014), and from the moment Doorman Ben open our cab door and greeted us , we knew we had made the right choice to stay here. Every staff member of the RadBluChi was very helpful, as well knowledgeable about the... More
