The location was great really close to Michigan Avenue and Lake Shore Drive. This hotel is situated among condominiums so pretty quite area for downtown. Self parking is close walk. Cost was $34. Staff was friendly and great deal on the room. Cons: Wifi did not work for me and the room was hot. No way to cool it down.

Place has mixed reviews. Our stay was good. Friendly front desk, good size room (suite), could be cleaner, but ok. In our opinion it was a good value - very close to Water Tower Place. We like to walk around that area so it was just what we wanted. Not so much for a view. Hotel does have large amount... More

Stayed in a king bed room. Room was very small and hot. A/c would not work. Opened one window and the room never cooled down. Hotel was out of coffee for the rooms! Really? No stores around? Never texted me that room was ready. Never got a satisfactory answer from guest services with any question. We stayed one night. In... More

For the price we paid I think this hotel provides good value. It is in a great location, only 2 mins walk from Michigan Avenue and 15-20 from The Loop, plus there are lots of buses you can catch from Michigan Ave should you wish. It markets itself as a boutique hotel but I'm not sure it really stretches that... More
