My parents stayed here almost every time they came to visit me in Chicago. I've stayed here a few times too, mostly when I was in the process of moving. It's actually a really fantastic place to stay on the North Side - most of the hotels are downtown, so if you are visiting family in Lincoln Park or anywhere in the north neighborhoods, it's nice to be a bit closer. And it's in a great location with tons of restaurants and shopping, easy lake access, and busses/trains to downtown.
I've never found it to be noisy despite its proximity to a very busy intersection. And I'm very sensitive to noise!
The rooms are small, but they fit the bill. Last time, my parents and I were both upgraded for no reason to a "business room" which is the size of a normal hotel room (as opposed to the small standard rooms) and came with a few perks like a little bag of Chicago mix popcorn! Bathrooms always tend to be small, no matter the room.
Free wi-fi that works pretty well, not super fast. Free breakfast in the morning that I think is mostly just continental (no hot bar) but you can make waffles and oatmeal and things like that. Valet parking, you pay a flat fee for unlimited in and out for the day. Pricey, but very convenient and really necessary in this neighborhood.
The front desk staff are SO nice. They are always happy and friendly, eager to help, and just incredibly pleasant. They remember my parents after so many stays and treat them so kindly. Also, I left something of great sentimental value there recently and they mailed it back to me in Michigan (they charge for it, just charged the card we used for the room, but still).
I'd recommend this hotel to anybody who just wants a place to stay that's less expensive than the downtown options but still safe and convenient. It's no frills, but it'll meet all your needs!
