We had read all the reveiws prior to staying there and were somewhat filled with dread.
We were pleasantly surprised on arrival howver.Staff very helpful esp bell boys, front desk staff and Ray the driver.....some improvement needed by resturant staff.......rooms were small but cozy,with loads of hot water in bathroom and location walking distance to Magnificent Mile .Shuttle was very helpful.
There was a huge Opthalmology conference going on in Chicago at the time of our visit so our room was not cheap...$ 159.00 per night.I would have expected somewhere a lot nicer for that money but other hotels were much more expensive.
Pool excellent and gym facilities.Worth a try in my opinion
