Location: About a block away from Michigan Ave, Water Tower Place and right behind the John Hancock tower. If your not from Chicago, this means it is in the heart of the city. It's a safe neighborhood.
Option one - $47/night hotel valet
Option two - $22/night self-park right across the street (not truely a self park, because the garage attendant takes your keys and parks the car for you).
Lobby: Small, but comfortable. Area for sitting and free coffee.
Room: Booked a King room for $99 direct on the hotel site. We stayed on a Saturday night and they upgraded us to a King Suite for no additional charge. The suite was in extremely nice shape and looked very clean. The bed was firm, yet comfortable. All the furniture was contemporary.
The amenities at this hotel are limited. It's a place to stay on a budget, but it is a very nice looking hotel inside and out. When you are in Chicago, you don't need a hotel that has everything (just a clean, comfortable place to stay). You're in a city that has it all.
