If you're looking for a decent hotel in the loop of Chicago, without spending a lot, and you don't spend much time in your room, The Silversmith is perfect. It's 20 steps away from the L (brown/green lines) so transportation around Chicago is a breeze. And it's only about 1 block and a half away from Cloudgate (a.k.a. The Bean in Millenium Park).
The lobby was very nice (take the elevator to the second floor for the lobby). We were originally booked in a 2 bed room, and we got switched to a queen bed instead. Thank goodness. The room was SMALL. With a queen bed there was barely any room to move. But we weren't spending much time in there, so it worked just fine for us.
One thing I'd like to mention is the staff. Hands down some of the friendliest people you could ever want to run into while traveling. I don't just mean one or two people, but the entire time, every single person had a smile on their face, greeted you, and was just pleasant to deal with.
I'm not saying I would go out of my way to stay here again, but I sure wouldn't avoid it either.
