The location was fantastic, just steps away from Michigan Avenue, the Hancock and Water tower Place but far enough removed from the hustle and bustle of these attractions. Right around the corner on the lower level, there is a grocery store with an excellent selection of beer, wine, spirits, grocery items, produce, deli, frozen foods etc. of course this convenience...

My family and I spent the weekend in downtown Chicago and stayed at this hotel. From the moment we got out of the cab we were treated VERY well! Everyone we met was very welcoming and anxious to help however they could. The hotel room we had was amazing! Beds were very comfy and clean! The location of the hotel... More

We booked this trip in July for our annual holiday trip to someplace! My wife chose Chicago and the Mag Mile for shopping. I booked a room here for 4 nights, December 9-13. Our flight was one hour early, and we proceeded to hotel via shuttle. We walked in at 11:30am expecting to be told no check in until 3!... More

We are staying while my husband is having medical treatment at Northwestern Memorial. The staff here is very nice and welcoming. Very clean here but they will be renovating in Jan 2015. The location is just a few blocks from the Mag Mile and the waterfront. We will have spent about 7 weeks here total with no complaints.

Good afternoon. We are so excited to provide accomodations for our hospital patients. With our large rooms, equipped with full kitchens, it's the perfect place to unwind after a long day at the hospital. As you mentioned, we will be undergoing a complete room and lobby renovation to begin in mid January 2015, with a completion date of late March.... More

Location could not be beat for access to downtown shopping. Less than five minute walk to Water Tower Place with American Girl store, Lego Store and new Chicago sports museum (great thing for your boys to do while your girls are doing American Girl - Lego also fun but can't kill as much time there). Hotel is undoubtedly old -... More

Nice hotel in a great location, clean, well staffed, pretty quiet and nicely furnished. We've stayed here twice, for a total of 8 days. 4 blocks from Watertower place; dozens of stores and resaurants in walking distance. Staff friendly and efficient. Amazingly smooth check-in. Bellstaff are great, always help when arriving by cab; don't necessarily expect a tip, either. One... More
