    I stayed here this past weekend. There's nothing special. I would have rather stayed at the LaQuinta next door. The building seemed dated and nothing all that grand. The beds were comfortable and the rooms were clean.

    Considering the very high prices in Chicago, tis hotel was a good option. The room was clean, the bed was very comfortable, the location was safe, shuttle service to downtown. If you look for a no-frill accomodation, this is a place to go.
