The hotel is filthy and decaying. I had to change rooms at 3.30 AM, after I started developing an allergy from whatever chemical had been sprayed in the room. Look at the evacuation plan, a simple drawing taped to the elevator. I cannot understand why the city of Chicago has not sent a health and security inspector. Let's hope there is never a fire in that hotel. Coming from someone having history as a profession. This hotel is far away from being historic and charming. It was a poor choice for finding out by myself the truth behind these mixed reviews, given the excellent location. Stay away from this hotel. Cancel your reservation before it's too late, like in my case.
