This hotel is central for everything in Chicago. Some of the best restaurants and bars are within easy walking distance and the El station is within a few blocks.
The hotel itself is small compared with some of its competitors in the area but offers great value for money. It offers a free buffet continental breakfast which is conveniently served on each floor. In the evening there is a free food and drink reception every night (between 5.30 and 7.00). There are snacks (meats, cheese, hummous etc) and an open bar with premium brands. There is also free wi fi throughout the hotel including the bedrooms.
The service was excellent, the staff being consistently polite and helpful. The housekeepers were particularly good.
The rooms are a little old fashioed and could do with a spot of updating. However this did not effect the overall enjoyment of our stay at this hotel.
