I do quite a bit of business travel to Chicago and stay at downtown hotels. However, my wife and I, who used to live in the Lakeview neighborhood, wanted to stay in the area with our kids for a short vacation. The location was perfect. We walked to the lake every morning (a very easy 20 minutes). Lots of great restaurants, shops, and music in the neighborhood all within walking distance. The Diversey el stop was only about a 20 minute walk and, although a bit longer (maybe 25 or 30 minutes), the walk to Wrigley was easy as well. What was really beyond expectations was the hotel staff. They were friendly, helpful, and very accommodating. Also, while the rooms were a touch dated (again, I'm used to staying at downtown hotels), they were exceptionally clean (which is really important to me) and well maintained. I have no hesitation in recommending this hotel for a stay in the Lincoln Park/Lakeview area.
