HORRIBLE EXPERIENCE. Disgustingly dirty and cold rooms. Rudest staff ever. They basically yell at you on the phone and they roll their eyes when you ask for something, like the wifi password. The heaters did not work. It smelled like cigarette everywhere. The bathroom was gross when I arrived, as if they hadn't cleaned it before.

I chose this hotel because I was on a budget and it had great transport links. I had read some of the bad reviews but since I was only staying for a few nights, I thought it would be fine. Upsides - price (though looking back, I would have paid more to stay elsewhere); subway only a few minutes walk... More

The hotel is 3 minutes far from the Chinatown station, really convenient and 10 minutes far from the downtown (The loop). However, it is no cheap (cheaper than many others). The room was really small, the bathroom small as well and the common areas were a little smelly. On the other hand, I could sleep well, it was not noisy.... More

This hotel is below average, but I'll give it a three rating for being cheap, convenient to the train, and in a great neighborhood. I booked online with a third party and had no problems checking in or out. The free wi-fi worked well for my basic purposes. The room was tiny, but was fine for me as a solo... More

This hotel was one of the worst that we've ever stayed at, but for the price it was in a good location and convenient to downtown. I don't think we had a hot shower while we were there and they certainly did not clean the rooms. We found trash on the floor that had not been cleaned up. If you... More

Do not waste your money or expose your integrity in this hotel. It is very expensive , no elevator and the stairs are very narrow. Since you approach the stairs , you realize that makes the carpet is very old and smelly. The room is very small , smelly and the furniture is very old. The door did not close... More

I read reviews about people that are upset about this Hotel. We have to put thing in perspective. Hotels downtown were about 500$/night when I booked. This hotel was 80$/night. Of course this will not be the 5 stars hotel of the Loop. So if you are expecting marble bathroom, mint condition furniture and a perfect view of the city,... More

This place is awful! My husband and I checked in here after a late flight. We just needed a cheap, quick place to stay. We checked in at 1:30am and paid $75. We got to our room and started hearing these blood curdling screams and moans from our window. We thought it was coming from the alley outside. When I... More

I was there to attend a food show at McCormick Place. It was a popular show so the hotels around the area were fully booked, or extremely expensive. I was left with no choice but to book this hotel, old and small, not well maintained but comparatively cheap , the location is excellent and .staff is good and helpful, It... More

Staying in Chinatown

Neighborhood Profile
Chinatown
Chinatown may be one of Chicago’s smallest neighborhoods geographically, but it's big on character, colors, sights, sounds, and flavors. In this South Side neighborhood, you’ll find authentic Chinese restaurants dotting the length of Wentworth Avenue. After a meal of dim sum, noodles, duck or other tantalizing food specialties, satiate your visual appetite with dozens of public art sculptures sprinkled throughout the neighborhood ranging from animal structures to pagodas, a tile mosaic, Chinatown Gate, and a Buddhist Temple.
