After looking on the website I think we expected a little more than we got at the Parthenon but that said we don't have anything to complain about. We had a double room (dorms are available too) facing the street which over the weekend was noisy but that's nothing new. The room was basic - bed, towels and chest of drawers. The bathrooms were shared, they looked new and were always clean.
Wi fi was meant to be in all rooms but at the time we were there some building work was going on and we could only get it in the common room - not a drama. The common room had a large flatscreen tv, computer, fridge and tea/coffee making facilities, there was also free breakfast available. The laundry is across the street in the basement of another building, but you can get the key from hotel reception.
The staff were always pleasant, courteous and willing to help.
The hotel is in the middle of the Greek quarter of Chicago which was cool, but it's a good 20 minutes walk into the city centre and about 10 minutes walk to Union Station.
