The price was hard to beat. The rooms are adequate, but sparsely/cheaply furnished and utterly charm free. The breakfast is a nice touch. Staff are extraordinarily friendly and helpful (the best part of staying here in fact). Guest-room windows are large, which is a good thing because unless your face and phone are pressed up against one, forget about a working mobile phone connection. We had two different phones with two different service providers and neither could get reception even two feet (literally, I measured) away from the window. Location is OK for some decent restaurants and the "splendor" of the north loop, but if you're in town for the finer things in life, it's a good seven to 10 blocks hike (that's close to a mile) to the very best shopping on Michigan Avenue. Just saying. I chose this hotel because it was $20 less than its sister Marriott next door. (And I got what I paid for.) I might stay here again if the price was dramatically lower ($80 to $100 less) than other comparably budget-minded choices (Holiday Inn, for example), but personally I'll spend more next time for something with a few more touches of comfort/convenience/class.
