Well to start with the positive, the staff were polite enough and the room was clean. However everything else about this stay was horrible. We were in Chicago during marathon weekend so when my other half booked most other places were fully booked and we ended up here as it was one of the most reasonably priced hotels available.
The hotel is a long way from pretty much everything we wanted to see and do; tourist attractions, good nightlife, nice restaurants etc. which meant we ended up spending a lot on cabs during the weekend we were there. The hotel and rooms are very basic and definitely no frills but the main thing that brings this hotel down in my ratings was the terrible "club" downstairs. I don't know if it was a regular event or if it had been hired out but every night of the weekend there was a dubious crowd hanging around by the entrance to it and the music was truly awful, believe me I know because from my 3rd floor room I could hear it as loud as if I was actually in there! Ruined what was already a very average experience. Honestly all I can say is do not stay at this hotel unless your only concern is cost. For me I would rather spend a fortune to stay somewhere nicer and more central if I return to Chicago, and we visited bars in some of the other hotels there so I know there are definitely nicer places!
