I don't think I have ever stayed at a place so hard to review. My travelpurpose was as a tourist for 5 days in Chicago. First of all - it was a good hotel at a decent rate. Good room, nice bed, clean etc. There were some noise from a nearby train, but I got used to that very quickly. Some rooms will probably have more noise. There's a restaurant serving a good breakfast, and then there's a bar for beer and food etc. Some won't like the bar - some will. I found it very nice, and went for "dinner" several times at the bar. But the major problem with the place is location, location, location. When you are in Chicago as a tourist most spots is in downtown, and this place is located so you have to take a bus everytime you go to or from your hotel. That's not convenient for a normal tourist. It's difficult to have a afternoon break at your hotel, and the neighbourhood of the hotel is sleazy, so that evening walk around the area to a local shop is out of the question. For me that was a major disadvantage for this in other ways nice and decent hotel.
