This place is one block from a busy fire station and I'd stay there again anyway. How's that?
It's also one block from a CTA Red Line station, on the line that took us to most of the places we went. Many highlights are easily walkable from the hotel, and there are some worthwhile restaurants.
We had a one-bedroom suite (couple in bedroom, third in living-room sofabed. Didn't use the kitchen (microwave, fridge, sink, lots of counter space. Living room and bedroom were both spacious and comfortable. Very good bed, and no complaints re sofabed.
Yes, there is a busy firehall on the same street. If you're on the street side of the hotel you will hear sirens; the hotel provides earplugs. But we often hear sirens when we stay in downtown hotels in other cities, and as active tourists we usually fall into bed exhausted anyway. It really wasn't annoying at all.
The bathroom in our suite was a little tired, and the toilet gave off an odd squeal as it finished refilling its tank. Hotel said they'd fix it, and our experience with Hamptons tells us they will.
Breakfast was as expected - some hot and cold options, juices, fruits, yogurt, two coffee choices, and a room that was never quite full so no hassle.
Good little business centre, satisfactory pool and hot tub. Didn't use the fitness centre but it looked clean and reasonably up to date. Staff were friendly and helpful - as was everyone we talked to in Chicago!
Summary: comfortable, affordable, well located, and friendly. Recommended.
Quieter away from the street.

Thank you so much for the in depth review of our hotel! I'm glad you were able to enjoy one of our larger suites. We do understand the noise level that can occur with a fire station next door which is why we provide ear plugs for guests who might be more sensitive to the noise.
I hope you enjoyed your experience in Chicago!
All the best,
