“This place is getting better”
Reviewed September 18, 2013

I stayed on September 2013. I had a great time. I asked to be at a room away from elevators and trains. Mr. William Watson, lobby clerk, put me in the right room. Great sleeping quality. Safe place. Every evening the floor housekeeping manager visited every room to be sure towels and beds were clean properly and to see any complaints with housekeeping. Nice detail. This hotel is close to EVERYTHING, metro Harrison Station, around the corner, millennium park, cloud gate, the bean less than 5 minutes walking. Shopping, theaters everything around you. Thanks to Mr. William Watson for all his assistance telling me the names of the places to go in the City, tips of how to go. Mr. Watson is an asset to this hotel. Very knowledgeable, courteous and helpful. I recommend this hotel, do not have a pool, but you have a great city around you to see. From airport, take blue line to city, stop at Jackson, take the red line down the stairs to Ashland 63, next stop is Harrison, hotel is 100 meters to your right. Returning to airport, take red line to Howard, stop at Jackson, go down the stairs to blue line train to Ohare. Is $2.25 the one hour ride one way. Also, this hotel have free WIFI with very strong signal and a computer with printer in front of the lobby to print boarding pass. There is also a safe in each room.

Room Tip: Ask for a room away from elevators and trains.

I was VERY nervous to stay here after I had read all the negative reviews but I was surprised by how clean the room was. Yes it was small but it was perfect for what is needed i.e. sleep. The front desk was friendly and you can not beat the location ! The bed was comfortable. Our room was right outside of the elevator so it was a little noisy but no big deal. You can not beat the location and price. It is in walking distance of the train. Our flight got in at 0930 in the morning and they let us check in at that time which was perfect so we could take a nap before sight seeing.

Room Tip: Ask for one away from the elevators and the higher the better

Stayed 4 nights 29th September. Great location, only two blocks from blue line L which will get you to and from O Hare real easy. Building is old and worn but rooms were clean and tidy and housekeeping efficient. Front desk staff were helpful and wifi worked well. If you only need a clean room while in town this is a great priced option and well worth considering. I usually stay at the Palmer House but the Travelodge is a quarter of the price and the money saved was spent on shows, Cubs game and restaurants. Give it a shot.
