We had a bad experience at the Hyde Park Ramada and moved here for the last 4 days of a 5 day trip. It is a brand new South Side hotel and beautifully decorated with a 'jazz' theme. The hotel came with free parking and free wireless internet for $25. less per night than the hotel we moved from. It is not 'in' a neighborhood itself, but it is close to the Interstate, Lake Shore Drive, IIT and the Chicago White Sox stadium. If you have a car, this place is highly recommended as it has a large, well lit ground level parking lot.
The room was very spacious and nicely appointed. We had two queen sized beds and a separate sitting area. Plasma TV on the dresser, and free wireless internet.
The best thing about the hotel is the staff. Very friendly and helpful, not the jaded, disinterested automatons you see so often in large city places.
I consider this hotel to be a real find, and a great stop for people with cars and laptops on a budget, and looking for a relaxing place to stay while seeing the sights of Chicago!More
