It is often that when someone experiences great customer service they don't take the time to voice it to others. I absolutely had to take a few moments to speak on my experience at the Bellwood hotel. Starting from my pleasant greeting from the front desk associate, Ms Susana She greeted me with a huge smile, answered my questions, and...

Unfortunately I recently had an experience with staff that cancels out these borderline virtues. On the night in question they only had availability at the top of their...

I found this hotel online and contacted them as I wanted a budget hotel in the Gay Area of Chicago known as East Lake View. Several hotels came up in the area, but all of them were between $250 and $450 for a 2 night stay. The Bellwood advised they didn't take reservations and you just had to turn up...
