5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 7, 2013

My wife and I recently spent a night here and were pleasantly surprised. The hotel was in a convenient location, it was clean, and the room was bigger than expected. The morning breakfast was not bad either. We would definately stay here again in the future.

All I have to say is lawrence and the rest of the staff should be given a raise and promoted at this hotel! Lawrence was an amazing host and went above and beyond for me and my son while we stayed at the hotel! He along with the rest of the staff should be HIGHLY commended for there never ending compansion,passion and "down home" cander! Food was great,room was great and again Lawrence is the man!!!! Tony and Griffin Norton appreciate you Lawrence!!!

Room Tip: See Lawrence....He is amazing!

3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 24, 2013

I just completed a 2 night stay at this hotel. I was pleasantly surprised with the room, very spacious with updated furnishings (great TV channels with multiple HBO options). The bed was very comfortable. The work space was great, very large desk against the window overlooking the street. It was large enough that they had 2 chairs set up and multiple desk lamps. The free wi-fi also worked very well. very conveniently located to the El (about a block walk to the loop trains). I was only on the 2nd floor and concerned that there would be street noise but it wasn't even noticeable at night. I didn't have much interaction with the front desk staff but what I did have was pleasant. For the money, a good option in a downtown hotel.

Room Tip: i was on the 2nd floor, street noise was fine at night. unfortunately I had a room right next door...

The hotel was decently priced, considering that I happened to be there on a long weekend of a very big music festival. Despite that, the price was acceptable, and well worth the price, given the cost of surrounding hotels.
The room was clean and well equipped, staff was very helpful and friendly, and the included breakfast was very good.
As for location, it was right in the loop within walking distance to all the major downtown attractions.
I'd definitely stay here again.
