Hotel is not the worst I've been.. However for $120 I expect a bit more. Staying downtown Chicago I knew that it would be a bit noisey, wasn't too bad but might be for a light sleeper. Building is a bit dated. Elevator is tiny. Valet parking is pricey... But for Chicago it is expected. Our room had the necessities.... More

Not as bad as other reviews would tend to indicate. The rooms are reasonably-priced and small. Facilities are okay. Rooms have a decent hairdryer, and iron and ironing board, with satellite TV and internet. You pay extra for the safe. Everything worked for us but the internet is a little slow. None of your silly Bose Docks that don't work... More

Nice clean place. Not fancy but great prices for Chicago. I stay here whenever I go to Chicago. The location can not be beat! Right off MI avenue! A couple of blocks and you are on the magnificent Mile. So close to great shopping,dining, and entertainment. The staff has always been friendly and helpful. Free Wi Fi which is great.... More

Stayed here due to proximity to Northwestern hospital. Bathroom had mold. No garbage can. Trash on floor in bathroom. Internet doesn't work. We weren't expecting luxury but at 200/night I expect clean.

If you're looking for luxury, this is NOT the place for you. It's not dirty, in the sense that you can tell they vacuum and clean, but it's OLD. So old that it looks dirty. But that said, if you want to stay for cheap in a great location, you can find that hear. The staff was nice as well

The cost per night is a bargain when compared to the its location (the magnificent mile). The term "Magnificent Mile" says it all and staying at the heart of this place is the best way to explore Chicago. John Hancock tower and Navy pier are minutes walk and the locality has some of the best restaurants in the area (including... More

My new job booked me to attend a conference in The Loop area of Chicago, but by the time the plans were made, all hotels in the area (including the conference's preferred hotels) were all booked. This was the only reasonably priced option left, due to some other huge medical conference in town during the same dates. The in-room coffee... More

GREAT location (around the corner from Magnificent Mile), nicely-appointed rooms, the best rates downtown, and the staff is always wonderful and engaged (Michael the manager always makes sure my stay is the best experience! Just left on Saturday, and before I met Michael, Israel- who is no longer there- was great. Araceli at the front desk did her best to... More

Stayed here for a conference in June. Took the room because it was located centrally and one of the few rooms available. One block from Michigan ave so great location. It needs work. The hallway carpet has absorbed a lot of smells, the elevator is small and slow which is to be expected in an old building like this. The... More

I stayed at the hotel while in Chicago for a conference. I grew concerned when I read previous reviews given some of the criticisms. In my experience the hotel was better than I had been led to expect, but it needs to be seen within expectations one would have for a 2 or 3 star hotel. It is an honest... More
