Stayed here for 4 nights during the Chicago Marathon - Oct 10-14 2014....Loved it! Very clean & friendly service. Rooms were decent size - kitchenette was more than adequate for our needs....the hotel staff couldn't have been nicer. Everything was within walking distance....food/shopping & the sights! Would stay again!! Thanks!

The staff is friendly & helpful and the rooms are clean & comfortable. We had 3 memorable days sightseeing in the "windy city" and this location was perfect(have to walk though). It was our first visit to Chicago and we were impressed with how clean the city is, nice the people are and the excellent restaurants, museums, water/boat tours, etc...... More

My wife and I spent 1 night recently and were very satisfied. Friendly staff, great location (walking distance to all the mayor attractions). Our room was nice, comfortable and clean. The breakfast is included and it is good enough. We would stayed here again without any doubt.

we spent 2 separate spells of 5 days each at this hotel recently and were very impressed both times. All of the staff were friendly and helpful. Rooms were good but not light, due to surrounding skyscrapers. There is no restaurant on site but the breakfast provided is adequate and the free nibbles on 3 evenings of the week a... More

The hotel is pretty dated but the rooms are big and the price was great. I stayed here on business and my co-worker and I both had rooms on the 8th floor and they were mini-apartments. My colleague got upgraded and had a 2-bedroom! And if you stay in a room facing the water you will have an amazing view.

Easy access off Lake Shore Drive. We were able to unload at the curb and check in within ten minutes. Just a few blocks from numerous restaurants and shopping. The room was spacious and the small kitchen was perfect for our weekend. The beds were soft and the room was very clean. We had a slight view of the lake... More

This was our first trip To Chicago and I think we did a great job choosing this hotel. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The room was perfect for our group of 5 adults. We had a 2 bedroom suite and each of the rooms were very spacious. Our only complaint with the room would be the bathroom. Very... More

This is my first trip to Chicago. My daughter is getting tested for a bone marrow/stem cell transplant. We may be here one week, two weeks or two months. The first person we met was Chuck at the front door. So pleasant and so helpful getting out things out of the car and into the hotel. Then David at the... More

This is the second time in two years that a small group of college girlfriends have reunited at this location in Chicago. Quick, friendly check in, large, clean rooms, comfortable beds! The kitchens were a plus as we had plenty dishes and glassware to use for the goodies we bought. This hotel is close to Michigan Avenue and all that... More
