The location of this hotel is amazing, a block from the Magnificent Mile, a 7-11 around the corner, a bus to Union Station right outside the door. I couldn't fault them on that or how easy it was to get to.
The hotel has obviously been updated recently, with a lot of flashy modern decor, bright lights etc. It looks nice on the surface but once you enter the hotel the older, cheaper hotel look is still there.
We stayed in a king 'suite' which would have been a small room without the divide, but it felt even smaller with the wall in there. I realize that mattress firmness is a very individual preference, but this bed was way too soft for us. I barely slept and my back was really aching by morning.
Breakfast is always free here which was great, the selection was limited to the usual free breakfast choices - bagels, donuts, yoghurts, cereal, waffles etc.
I don't know if we would stay here again. I probably would recommend it to friends for the location but only if they were on a budget.
