I had a conference in Chicago last weekend and found this amazing hotel right in the heart of everything. 5 minute walk to the architecture tour, right beside magnificent mile, a 5 minute walk to the river, walk to great shopping and restaurants..everything.

stayed for one night in august 2014. rooms are nice, rather large and well appointed. however, one has the feeling upon entry into the lobby of an "Israeli" disco. Rather tacky. there are certainly better choices at their price range.

This boutique hotel was a wonderful respite from all the hustle and bustle of the downtown area. There are only about 5 - 6 rooms per floor so it is very quiet. Shower was spectacular.
