You literally cross the street and you're in Grant Park. We came to Chicago to go to a football game at Soldier Field so the location couldn't have been better. It's a couple miles south of Navy Pier and shopping so walking is possible. There are plenty of places to eat within a couple of blocks. The room itself is just an average room. (For our room) You walk in, there is an open closet area on your left with a couple suitcase holders and an iron and ironing board. Then, there's a door on your right to the bathroom. Tub/shower, toilet, sink, some shampoo, conditioner, soap, lotion. Keep on walking and there is a TV with drawers underneath and a desk on the left and a king bed with a nightstand on each side. We only stayed for one night so this was more than sufficient for us. Yes, it is a little outdated and some things aren't in good shape. For example, the knobs kept falling off the drawers under the TV. It wasn't as bad as some people are making it sound thought. The people that work there are very polite. Also, on the 3rd floor, there is a workout room and and outdoor pool (which wasn't open because it was cold, but looked perfectly nice). Where the pool is, there is an outdoor area that has tables and chairs. Overall, for the price, it was the perfect place for us. Chicago is an expensive place to stay so it's nice that there are cheaper options, even if it's not 5 stars.
