I have been traveling to Chicago for over 20 years and have stayed at a lot of HOTELS. I was always curious about this place because of it's pretty cheap rates. My wife and I got 4 nights for $68/ night, less taxes. Anyway, the lobby is spacious and warm then you go to the resident floors. As I was told, it was built in 1920's and it looks like it too ! Thought the doors, trim, molding are pretty bet up at least the have a fresh coat of paint on them. The rooms are not very spacious as you can imagine from that era but have been updated. Bathroom, carpet,,,not so much the window treatments. But, it was clean and very quiet. THe mattress was hard as a rock. There is a little cafe on the lobby level that offers a nice breakfast but at hotel prices. IF you want an inexpensive place without bells and whistles where all you need it forms a place to flop. This is it The owners(s) really need to drop a buck or to into the place though.
