I booked this hotel for NYE this year. It was the cheapest rate I could get in downtown Chicago, but still was not inexpensive. Location is not too bad, on Michigan Ave. just south of Millennium Park. The lobby was beautiful and service at check-in was quick despite the line.
The building is very old, the decor and condition of the rooms really show that. The hallways are dark and dingy. The rooms are SMALL- I got a room with a double bed so there was only about a foot between the two beds. The bathroom is too small to accommodate a tub there's an actually a stall shower. I can't say that the hotel was dirty, but it felt that way because it was so dingy and out-dated.
I probably would not stay again and if I did it would definitely not be on NYE. The hallways were noisey until about 4 a.m and in the morning we found puke on the floor just outside our room.
