Rooms were large and the beds were very comfortable with soft duvets and plenty of pillows. We slept very well! Flat-screen TV mounted on the wall. Old-fashioned decor, very classy and everything in working order. We were on the third floor and had no problems at all with the elevator. The neighborhood is absolutely lovely and residential and made me want to live there! However, you should be aware that downtown Chicago is a bit of a distance. Four minor complaints: 1- as other reviewers have noted, the front desk staff leaves somthing to be desired. They're not outright nasty or anything, just indifferent and not up to the niceness of the hotel itself. 2- It's far from the "L," about a half-mile walk. Not a big deal in nice weather, but if you're coming home late and you're tired, the last thing you need is a long walk. Bus is closer. 3- Not nearly enough seating at breakfast. There are no tables to eat at; you just kind of grab your stuff and balance it on your lap or on cocktail tables and there is just never enough space. 4-While the bedroom was quiet, when I was in the bathroom I could hear the entire conversation of my neighbors, and I don't think they were yelling, either.
Personally, I found the price to be high, but maybe that's just Chicago.More
