This was my first time in the city of Chicago and I traveled alone just to get out of the desert heat for a few days. I took the train from Midway to the Quincy stop and was about 2 blocks walk from this hotel. The hotel was the perfect location for me to explore all the 'touristy' things one should see while visiting this awesome city. Within walking distance to the art museum, the parks, magnificent mile, navy pier (although a little long of a walk if it's really cold), state street, willis tower and all the restaurants I needed. Speaking of restaurants you have to visit Miller's Pub and Wildberries!!! Oh, back to this hotel. The lobby is very comfortable to chat while figuring out the day ahead or checking email quickly before heading out. The staff were all very helpful and even flat out nice! I knew all their names within five minutes because they were so chatty and friendly. Even Carmen the housekeeper was all smiles when I ran into her each day. The only negative thing I can say about this hotel is that the basic room as to be the smallest US hotel room I have ever stayed in in my life. hehe. But the point of vacation is not to stay in your room, so I really don't care how small it is. However, if that matters to you, you should be warned that these rooms are really small. But clean, comfortable bedding, window with a view over the street, loved the iphone player on the nightstand and the free unlimited purified water. Oh, and I was surprised to see that there was no safe in the room. I really liked this hotel and would be happy to recommend it and will happily stay here again.
