We stayed in this hotel for 3 nights. The best thing about this hotel is its location: it's right on the highway, which was very convenient after an almost 7-hr long drive, however, you can't hear the noise or smell the exaust fumes. We had our car parked at the hotel's parking lot the entire time and walked and took public transportation everywhere. The check-in was fast and efficient, the room was clean and comfortable. Front desk employees were freindly and helpful, always ready with suggestions about sight-seeing or directions. The hotel is within 15-min walking distance to Downtown Chicago/Magnificent Mile; 5 min walk to Greek Town with all its restaurants,and 15-20 minute walk to the University Village/Little Italy with even more restaurants and shops. Lots of choices for breakfast or late night/lighter fare: Eggsperience - breakfast/pancake place right across the street, next to it is Mariano's grocery store/cafe/sushi bar...Should you want to go somewhere beyond walking distance - the hotel is right on the bus line. The neighborhood feels safe even late at night: a mix of tourists, late diners, locals walking their dogs or jogging. Overall, a very nice hotel close to Downtown yet away from the crowds and the noise of ELs.
