4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 1, 2013

Staff was excellent. We stayed here on our 1-year anniversary, and would love to stay here again.

The room was HUGE, and we loved it! Staff was very friendly and accommodating.

Location is perfect! We were able to walk to everything we wanted to see.

When we left, we only had to walk a short distance to catch the Orange 'L' train back to the airport. SUPER CONVENIENT!

If we *had* to complain about anything, it would be:
- No fan in the bathroom
- Bathroom really echoes
- No full door on the shower
- WiFi was fair, but occasionally dropped out.

Other than the WiFi (which we really depend on), there was really nothing to complain about. These are just observations.

We'll be coming back to Chicago with our kids next time, and will definitely stay here again!

We chose this hotel for a 3-day weekend stay, and we're so glad we did. The service was consistently friendly, the room was huge, clean, and well-appointed, and the location was ideal for enjoying central Chicago and taking public transport to more distant attractions. The value for money was truly excellent, as we found a good rate on Expedia, and we'll happily stay there again.
