I booked this hotel based on 2 things: the reviews here on TA & its location!
First the hotel: We parked across the street at a meter and went to check in. One of the first people we saw was the man at the valet stand. He lifted his head to look at us walking through the door, but didn't say a word. We next passed the bellman, who didn't even meet eyes with us, much less say hello. They were the only sour notes. The check in was pleasant and the front desk people were very friendly. Our room had 2 double beds and was huge! Room was clean & beds were comfy. We were right on the street and it would be loud at night if you don't travel with a fan...we don't leave home without ours. : ) I loved people watching out our window...and Walgreens right across the street came in handy a few times. I didn't ever personally make it to the breakfast, but my hubby did and came back to the room with different yummies every morning. Free breakfast with the awesome low rate can not be beat!
Now location: Lincoln Park is a wonderful base for your next trip to Chicago...we parked our car at the hotel with in/out privileges for $22 a day, but never took it out. We walked to Wrigley Field for a Cubs game and enjoyed some "dolla no holla" tacos at The Bar Celona where the service was excellent We walked just down the street from the Days to The Half Shell for killer crab legs and then headed to Kingston Minds for some rockin' Jimmy Burns Blues starting at 9pm on Wednesday and trust me, Jimmy knows blues! We also did Chicago Near North Food Tour and it was just okay...not the best, but not the worst. We did end up renting bikes at Bobby's Bikes ad going along the lake, through the Lincoln Park area including the FREE zoo, and back to some of the neighborhoods that the food tour took us through - Old Town is a great place for lunch.
Stay here...you won't regret it. Our next trip is already booked!
