A really nice stay at this hotel in downtown Chicago. It is only a short walk from Union Station which is very convenient if you do not have a car – it is also only about 15-20 minutes walk from the centre and all the attractions, shops,etc. The CTA station (Clinton) is right outside and it took just under an hour to get to O’Hare airport when we left. The only real downside to the hotel is the rather scruffy alleyway under the expressway you have to walk through to get to the centre of town.
The room we had was quite small but perfectly adequate; it was quiet even though we were on the second floor with the expressway outside. The restaurant was also only adequate; we went out for all our meals after the first night. They also have a rooftop pool which unfortunately does not open till Memorial Day; the temperature was 90 the week before so that would have been good.
Next time I think I would probably choose somewhere nearer downtown but this is perfectly acceptable at a good price.
