Great hotel in a great location. Rooms very modern and well appointed. Very clean. Staff very friendly and helpful. Price seemed high when booked, but location is expensive. I have stayed at other hotels in the local area, they are generally more expensive and not nearly as nice

We found our room was very spacious with separate lounge area to really relax in. The shower was luxurious with its large shower head. Everywhere was extremely clean. The perfect place at a very reasonable price to stay for a city break. Would definitely recommend!

This hotel was trying to be upscale but sadly did not accomplish. My main complaint was that the air conditioning would not work properly in my room (9th floor) and it was uncomfortably warm for two of the nights we stayed. I was not happy about that. Also, the room was very cramped and I kept tripping over the bed...

The hotel was nice for a great price! I don't think any other hotel Downtown Chicago will give you such a large room size for the price (I stayed in a Suite).

Stayed at this hotel over St Patrick's Day weekend. I thought the bed was very comfy though the comforter and the sheets were built into one. So if you like the separation it is not there.

Staying in Streeterville

Neighborhood Profile
Streeterville
Streeterville is where visitors head for play at Navy Pier, a pseudo amusement park and development of restaurants, shops, rides, and other activities. You’ll find lots of action and excitement on the docks. Along the pier, you’ll see the statue of the captain for whom Streeterville is named. While you enjoy your fair share of sightseeing at the pier, you can also visit other popular attractions there such as the Chicago Children’s Museum and the Chicago Shakespeare Theater. Off the pier you’ll find more restaurants from low-cost pubs to high-end establishments. Arts and culture aficionados should be sure not to miss the Museum of Contemporary Art.
