I traveled to Chicago via train, arriving at the Amtrak Union Station located between Adams and Jackson streets. This hotel is approximately 5 blocks away from the train station; you don't even need a taxi to get there! This is rather convenient even for the departure: just leave your luggage at the hotel, spend the day in the city and then pick it up in your way back to Union Station.
I reserved a room with one double bed, and it was big by all standards.
The (free) breakfast was particularly good, much more than continental: waffles, eggs, bacon in addition to cereal, oatmeal, fruits, biscuits, bread and the like.
Even though you're not at the heart of the Magnificent Mile, if you walk barely 4 blocks you will find a worth while shopping area on State Street, in addition to a variety of affordable restaurants.
Moving around is not a problem: bus stations as well as the CTA metro stations are within just a few blocks of the hotel. I recommend purchasing the CTA passes (I had the 3 days) which give you access to ALL buses and subways lines in the city. Moving around could not be easier!
And, if you are a AAA member, your room charge will be way under the $200 threshold that most of the Chicago hotels charge you.
This is definitely a good deal, but particularly attractive to those traveling via train.
