The staff was amazing! Harold even pulled bus route information for me. The hotel was very clean. I walked to a conference 1 1/2 miles away and felt very safe. Thank you.

Excellent service, great greeting and all accommodations including the room were right on par with a nice 3 star hotel. Front staff were very polite and helpful. Would definately stay again at this hotel. Great value for the dollar and very clean.

Over the past couple years, I have spent about 20 nites each year at this location. All of my time here is personal. However I spend a fair amount of time traveling elsewhere for business as well. In the 30 years I have traveled, this hotel is the best I have ever stayed at.

I work thru one of the hotel's employees, Jim Hickey, for all my reservations. Jim is great to work with, is very responsive and helpful.

The front desk personnel all do a great job. Whoever does their hiring and training are to be commended.

There in-house restaurant, Aurelio's, has great pizza and is reasonably priced.

This location is only 3 blocks south of Union Staion (Amtrack), only 2 blocks from the Greyhound bus station and a few blocks from the (used to be called) Sears Tower.

This is a great place to stay!

Room Tip: I have never had a bad room.

Marty, the duty manager, could not do enough to help us. Unlike many hotel managers, he was always walking around his hotel, assisting his guests. Staff were very friendly & eager to please. Huge room, if dated. Great location. Would stay again. Stuart & Judith T.

First time at this hotel but not our last. Very convenient to the subway and easy to find. Very friendly staff. I'm glad Sean answered the phone when I called for directions from airport. He was also helpful by giving us directions to the sites we wanted to see. Comfortable room, quiet and service was great. Had dinner at the restaurant next door; dinner was delicious and service good. When we go back to Chicago, this will be our "base" location.
