I admit I was a little worried about this hotel after reading a LOT of terrible reviews. Our experience here was very satisfactory. Our room (we were on the 4th floor of the North tower) was very large. 12 ft ceilings, decent bathroom with updated fixtures and tiled floor to ceiling. And oh, good water pressure in shower, with a shower head that was plenty high for me! Beds were comfortable. No experience with housekeeping as I put out the do not disturb for the day, as we were only here two nights. I will say that while showing its age, everything was very clean when we checked in. The locale is great, about one mile from museum campus, and an easy walk. Less than one mile to Willis Tower. Easy access to bus route. I would not hesitate to stay here again, though I will say that I'm pretty sure a different floor, in a different area of the hotel may yield a completely different room setup/experience. All in all, for a girls trip with me and my daughter, this hotel was everything we needed. Comfortable, clean, good location.
