“Nice hotel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 31, 2013

A very nice local in a great location. Renovated. Pleasant staff. Hotel has a restaurant Hoyt's.
breakfast there was good except for coffee. I found the room quiet amidst the noise of Chcao.

Its location at Wacker near Michigan ave is great.

First of all I must mention that this hotel crew is a differential, really nice people and ready to help when you need any assistance.

The hotel location is amazing, just a few minutes from Millennium park, also a few minutes from a boat tour station - Mandalla, and really close to some subway and bus stations that can take you to all major Chicago tourist attractions in a very short time.

Also in a walking distance you have a lot of options to eat, and also grab some groceries. You have a 7-11 and a Walgreens just around the corner and lots and I mean a lot of options to eat, from mc donalds and subways to really nice restaurants as the purple pig that is pretty close the hotel right at the Michigan av.

The rooms and hotel structure are also strong points. Room with a big bed, great shower and complimentary Wi-Fi that really works. Add to that also HD channels available too.
The hotel also has an attached restaurant with affordable prices.

Room Tip: If you have some extra money, ask for a room with a view of the river.

Last November, I spent four nights in Chicago for the annual SBL conference. I picked Hotel 71 off the SBL hotel page because it was a little cheaper than some of the other remaining choices. I am glad I did. It was fantastic. I had a 17th floor river view, easy access to the restaurants and shops in the area, and a classy, comfortable room. I think i enjoyed my room as much as I enjoyed the meetings that I attended! I'd love to bring my wife to Hotel 71 for a long Chicago weekend, but without a travel budget, it may be too hard on the finances.
