          My husband and I stayed here for a night with a Groupon deal.  At $100, this place was much more affordable than the other hotels on Michigan Ave.  The location was great: walking distance from the museums, the L-Train, and downtown attractions.  Our room and the lobby were clean and updated with modern furnishings.  The only downside was the bathroom's small size, with a tub that was slow to drain, but we didn't really care because we spent little time in our room.  The staff was helpful and polite, and check-in/check-out were quick and easy.  I'd return.
