    I have no postive recommendation for that place to give: no breakfast, quite oldish design and ramp down rooms, loud place cause close to interstate, reception people have no glue how to help best: zero fee shuttly to the center of Chicago and free parking

    Thanks for writing a review. The hotel is an economic plus for guests who don't wish to pay high room prices in the Loop. But we are oldish, no doubt. Our on-site manager will speak with the staff. We hope you'll give us another try.
