This is a great location – close to Michigan Ave, Navy Pier Trolley, Red Line, Bus Lines, Restaurants (Cantina Laredo and RPM are across the street). We arrived into town early and were able to get a room before 10am and grab a muffin before the breakfast closed. This was very helpful so we could start exploring the city. The Hotel is located across the street from the fire station but it did not wake us up if they left in the night (they offer ear plugs at the Front Desk if needed). I was looking forward to visiting the outside patio while eating breakfast but it is located inside pool area not near the breakfast room. I did not want to take food through pool area but I did enjoy my hot tea while sitting outside.
