Stayed here this past weekend. I have to say it was a great stay. Hotel was clean. Nice decor. Not sure if it is like this in all rooms, but our shower had no door or curtain! It was a little weird to be all exposed like that, but I just made sure I locked the bathroom door. Also, the shower floors are really slippery when wet. I am surprised there is no matting on the floor to prevent a slip and fall.
Room service is available if you wish to take advantage of it. I did not, so I can't tell you how it was.
Fitness Center is available on the second floor. I did use that and I have to say it was good. They have the standard treadmill, elliptical, and bike. There is also a machine weight set too. The center was very clean and the equipment well kept.
The hotel is right next to the LaSallle St. Station on the Blue Line for CTA. It was so convenient for myself! Easy to get on and transfer at other stops and it is a direct 40 minute ride from O'Hare.
On thing that I didn't like was the fact that there was no type of continental breakfast. Not even pastries and coffee! I know that there is a restaurant attached to the hotel, but I don't want to spend a lot of money on just breakfast! Dunkin Donuts is right across the way, and I made good use of them!
Also, I don't know why a few reviews give a thumbs down to the doorman, but I thought he was a good guy. He was very helpful and did give us some names of places to see and check out. "Showtime" was what he went by....good guy!
I can't think of anything else except next time I am in Chicago, I would stay here again. Decent hotel in a decent location for a decent price.
