I stayed here when it was still the Arlington International in a private double. The rooms were basic, the lighting in the rooms consisted of only one lamp which was particularly shoddy. i did not have trouble with bedbugs! Depending on which room you have, the bathrooms can either be really close or really far as only one set of male and females communals for each floor! Kitchen was pretty average, clean considering how busy the place was. Staff were very friendly, though service could be slow. Internet available as needed. Good links to transport and area felt safe at night. Sound travels very far if you have noisy neighbours, but this is just luck I suppose.
Stay here if on a budget and if on short stay!

Policies once etched in stone are being cast aside in favor of fresher, friendlier approach. Membership fees are out and hotel-like amenities are in at this stately 1928 Georgian Revival landmark that, ironically, returns to its early 20th century roots as a boardinghouse for women. Today, all guests are welcome to enjoy free breakfast, free WiFi, free linens, free housekeeping, a 24/7 chef-caliber kitchen and a BYOB policy. Add nightly events like pub crawls, brewery tours and barbecues and it's easy to see why Chicago Getaway is fast becoming the city's favorite spot for affordable short-term and extended-stay accommodations. ... more less
