Had a great experience at this hotel. The staff were EXCEEDINGLY friendly and helpful, I had a fantastic view from my hotel room, the beds were almost TOO comfortable, the rooms were clean, the bathroom was spacious, and everything looked fancy despite the very reasonable price. Had everything we needed. They even listened to the goofy special request I made!
The location is great, on the edge of downtown Chicago and just up from millennium park. I did have to walk quite a bit to get to other sights, but this wasn't an issue to me. Taxis are very easy to get from outside the hotel should you prefer that. A bakery and 7-11 are nearby for quick food, and two restaurants are directly next door (though I didn't try them).
The only complaints I have is that the wifi was unreliable and tended to drop me and my friend. The showers are also quite low pressure, as another reviewer pointed out.
But yes, for the most part, staying here was a great experience and I'd recommend it to anyone visiting Chicago!
My room was a double queen room.
