The place is conveniently located. We liked the fact that we could get an apartment style room, with a living room and two bedrooms. The staff are not unfriendly per se, just seemed uninterested or indifferent. They never bothered to tell us that it was tricky to find their

Dear Sunshine13985608941 Thank you for taking time to share your experience on your past visit with us. I was very disappointed to read about the issues you had while parking at our property. This is certainly not indicative of the level of customer service we aim to provide and I apologize for any issues. Because we do understand parking can be confusing for our road weary guests, our check-in process includes specific instructions with a map and a remote control to enter our garages. Room keys are programmed for easy access to our lobby from the parking area. Again, I am disappointed to learn this was not provided to you and the staff on duty was not more responsive. I am sorry I am only learning about this now and wish I could have addressed this during your stay to help make the rest of your visit more memorable. Please feel free to reach out to me directly if you would like to discuss your experience personally. I hope we have the opportunity to welcome you back another time and give you the 5-star service deserved. Best regards, Rick Verkler General Manager

Hi DulcPaulina! Currently we do not charge for dogs of any size, we just ask that they be well behaved. Additionally, we have dog beds and bowls to make your pooch feel at home. We have a huge park (Chase Park) just a few minutes away on foot or an off the leash dog park near Lawrence and Lake Shore Drive.

Is it safe ?? Scary at all ??
Hi Dreamchasin! Thank you for your question. We are in a safe area and, in fact, Andersonville was rated the best neighborhood by Chicago's City Pages. Andersonville is a neighborhood full of families and long time Chicagoans who pride themselves on the community they've built. It's chalked full of shops, restaurants, bars and even a farmer's market every Wednesday night! Additionally, we are located right on the Clark Bus route which runs all night and about 10 minutes walk from the Lawrence Redline stop.
