My husband and I chose this hotel after reading the reviews on this website and we were not disappointed. It's very,very basic but the rooms are clean and the showers hot. We stayed for 10 days and because of this, we took one of the larger rooms at $89 per night (ask for a room at the back on a high floor if you want a bit more light and peace & quite) This was worth doing as these rooms have a fridge and quite a bit more floor space and a very large, comfortable bed. We took our own towels as advised by other people and were glad we did. The sheets were very thin and the pillows very flat and uncomfortable so as we were staying so long, we walked round the corner to Marshalls and bought a duvet, sheets & two pillows for $100 - sorted! We could easily have spent another $100 per night to get this location so this was a worthwhile investment. I noticed quite a few other guests arriving with pillows tucked under their arms, so we were not alone.
The hotel's location is unbeatable - round the corner from loads of good restaurants and the magnificent mile and a 15 minute walk or $5 taxi ride from the Merchandise Mart, where we were working.
We will definitely be returning next year.
