Stayed with another couple in April of 2013 in this fun Lincoln Park Boutique hotel. Everything here was top-notch, and all at a great price. If you happen to be a DePaul Alumni, ask for the discounted rate which is excellent. Both our rooms were on the fourth floor, and were well appointed, comfortable beds, quiet rooms, very clean. The bathroom was absolutely spotless. In room coffee was the best I have had in a long time. The rooms are not big, but they have a nice little desk, a comfy chair, a closet and a window with curtains that actually keep the light out. We never once felt cramped.
The staff could not have been friendlier! Our traveling partners accidentally left their key in the room on more than one occasion and the desk was so nice about getting them back in quickly. The doorman and porter were very friendly.
The coffee shop has excellent coffee and pastries, we did not eat their more substantial food but I am sure it was good as well. The restaurant itself was not open early on Sunday so we did not eat there. Opted to not visit the rooftop lounge as we wanted to get out in the city and see some real local pubs, rooftop bar seemed a bit crowded for our tastes. Since you can walk to several nice bars and restaurants you have lots of options. Plus, the Park is right there for some fun sightseeing in the Summer!
This is a light-hearted, funky little hotel so if you need lots of space and big grand lobbies, look elsewhere. If you need a clean, comfy, friendly place to stay, this is your hotel!
Local calls are an outrageous $1.00 each, so use your own phone to order pizza!
Overall I HIGHLY recommend this great hotel! I will definitely return.
