We stayed here in August 2012. We got engaged on our first night in Chicago and this was a great place to stay for our trip for a variety of reasons. Firstly, the location was excellent - it is perfectly located for restaurants, parks, Lake Michigan, Willis Tower, Route 66, trains, etc. The main shopping area is just a short 10 minute walk away. Our room was comfortable, modern and clean, if a little cramped. We picked up our hire car from La Salle which is just a couple of blocks away. We then drove 3,000 miles across Route 66, which starts just around the corner.
