If you are looking for a great location to stay in downtown Chicago on a budget, this may be it.
It may be a bit worn, but it was clean and adequate. We had no complaints about cleanliness, housekeeping, valet, concierge. My only complaint was a comment made by the front desk staff upon check-in when she snapped that the room was pre-paid. It was indeed, but I didn't realize that it meant that we would not be welcomed by a greeting that included acclimating us to the hotel. Besides, pre-paying offered me the best rate. After checking in and going out on the town for some sight-seeing, I stopped back at the front desk and a different clerk answered all my questions and he was surprised no one had given that information at my check-in.
The location is 1/2 block from the Mag Mile, and super close to many of the downtown attractions, all within easy walking distance. A short bus or "L" ride can get you to everything. Wrigley Field, museums, and more.
Food, it's everywhere, so it is all close, although nothing at the hotel.
Grab a bottle of wine and hit the 22nd floor roof-top for some r&r and watch over the city lights.
There are actually 3 elevators in operation and I never waited more than minutes going up or down for one.
This hotel does the job and leaves you plenty of money to use on your tour of the city!
