The appearance of the hotel upon arrival was not as good as it looked on the website. We were led to room 101 which was neither on the first floor nor the second and involved taking an elevator to second floor and steps down to the room (we had several suitcases so this was not convenient).
Once there, however, room was large, clean and well appointed. It was also incredibly quiet (caveat: there were 11 dumpsters outside and below the window not emptied by a beeping truck while we were there). Bathroom amenities also complete but the shower curtain gave us the choice of soaking the floor or having it constantly blow in on me as i showered. It was too light.
Location was pretty good but it was mile from the main shopping area. we like to walk so it wasn't a problem. Adler Planetarium, Grant Park, Art Museum, south side of Michigan Ave were all easily accessed.
We would stay there again if looking for a reasonably priced stay.
