This hotel is old, needs some spiffing up, but is located in a great spot - walk to many fabulous places. Small rooms. Terrace on the top floor was great - we had a nightcap there every night. Wifi in the lobby only - really in downtown Chicago? Expected it in my room.

We booked this hotel at the very last minute through my employers 'workperk' program and got a very good rate. My husband and I travelled with our two teenaged children. The location is excellent. The rooms, a little dated and a small washroom, but it met our needs. We were on the 15th floor and I felt our room was... More

The hotel was, simply put, average. The lobby areas were clean and updated, but the rooms were nothing to write home about. Small and very basic. We had one small window and only lamp lighting so the rooms were dim. The bathroom is quite small and not in the greatest shape. The hallways in particular were in bad shape as... More

This was the best price for a wonderful location. You are a few blocks from public transportation, as well as great food. The hotel was fine, the room was very small though. I also asked for a room up high away from street noise and they put me on the 4th floor, facing the street. All that said, street noise... More

I must confess that I was not so sure if booking in this property would be a good idea, after reading so divergent reviews here in tripadvisor. But I've followed my guts and have taken a risk. Gladly. It was a very acceptable hotel to stay in the epicenter of Chicago, in a walking distant to many good places to... More

My partner booked through a deal on Expedia. We were a bit worried about the bad reviews but decided to take a chance. The location can't be beat, that's for sure! The lobby and rooftop lounge are great,there is a bar in the lobby where you can purchase drinks to take up to the rooftop, or like us, you can... More

At first I was a bit weary of booking here based on some reviews. Needed to find a place near where my son lives. We were pleasantly surprised. The employees were very friendly. The room was very clean. Yes it is not the fanciest of places, but we were only looking for a decent place to sleep while we visited... More

This hotel has the smallest elevator ever! Four people and it's full. Room was tired and not very well furnished. WiFi only available in lobby. One plus is access to the coffee shop from the hotel! Roof terrace provides good views of the skyline but no facilities up there so you have to take drinks from the bar in the... More

Nickoo9- We may not be the most luxurious hotel in Chicago, however we offer many unique features that other hotels do not. Our location is one of the best in downtown Chicago, and the skyline views from our rooftop are breathtaking. Since we do not offer a bar on the rooftop, we encourage our guests to take their beverages from... More

The rooms were really nice and clean. Staff at the front desk were very helpful and answered any questions we had. This hotel was in the PERFECT location for the mile and Navy Pier, all within walking distance.

The staff at this hotel are 99% superb- one night clerk was a bit indifferent and had to be coaxed a little to be helpful. Rooms were spotless and despite the older carpet my asthma did not bother me at all. If you ask for a quiet room it is truly quiet. When i had difficulties with my key it... More
