I stayed here during the holiday season last year, and it was just fine, but it didn't cost me a total of $303 for one night. I really like the River North location, and the people out front and behind the counter go above and beyond the call of duty, but this isn't a full service hotel, and the complimentary breakfast is still a Hampton Inn breakfast.
Even though I decided at the last minute to pay up for an extra night in the city (partly because I'd just used a free night at a different establishment) and it was a perfect stay, I can't say that I got my money's worth. The room was nice and clean and the staff--once again--was great, but I won't return unless I can get a much better deal. Yeah, I'm hooked on Hilton Honors points, but with prices like this, I'm thinking about going back to Hotwire.
