We stayed at this hotel two nights last week. It was perfect for getting to the Chicago Marathon, the City Pass attractions, Grant Park, etc. The hotel has a gym, pool, and room service. Super comfortable bed and room. Staff is VERY helpful. They offer discounts but we bought the city pass while staying at a hostel during the first half of our trip (wish we could afford to stay at this place the whole time). The only real complaint is the other guests. We were next to a room that had a child who was playing on the door. I feel that if the hotel would place a sign on the inside of the doors saying "Guests please do not slam doors and be courteous of other travelers" or something to that effect. It is pretty expensive (though not so much for Chicago) to be paying in order to wake up a lot due to slamming doors. Again I would recommend this place based off of the room, location, cleanliness, etc. Just wish we were not next to door slammers....
