Stayed 4 nights while visiting family for a graduation ceremony at the Art Institute and it turned out to be a great choice. Our room was large enough with a full sized kitchen and had plenty of seating so we could entertain our family members right in our hotel. Recent renovations have left this place like new, and it was spotlessly clean. The breakfast bar is well stocked and the hotel is very easy to access from I-35 in either direction. Close to many restaurants and stores. The best thing by far was the staff. Every person we encountered went out of their way to be friendly and helpful regardless of the time of day or night. I would definitely stay here again. Advice: don't park by the basketball court if kids are playing - a few cars were hit by errant rebounds.
