PERFECT LOCATION!!

It was a great stay! They let us check in early. We were close to all the attractions. The only thing inconvenience was that there were only 2 elevators but besides that the rate for the room was great!

Great hotel in Chicago

For my first visit to Chicago, this was the perfect place to stay. It's central location allowed me easy access to different areas of the city. The staff were very helpful. I would stay there again.

Great location. Poor service, out of date and dirty.

This hotel is discounted for a reason. The loby and select rooms have been remodeled for marketing. Between the rude front desk staff, the outdated and dirty rooms we will not be staying here again. It is worth paying more and having a clean and updated room with pleasant staff.

Great Weekend

The room was pretty small, but for what it cost was completely what I expected and it was very clean and comfy. The staff was very helpful and polite. Location is great. The one downside to this hotel is no parking.

Convenient But

Convenient but small rooms with too much furniture in them and no counter space in bathrooms. The room wasn't dirty but it just wasn't as clean as most hotels.

Location was great, staff not so much

Somewhat disappointed here. Check in was supposed to be at 3 pm. FAIR WARNING, check in is actually ANY TIME after 3 pm. Our room was not ready until almost 7 pm. Luckily we had reserved 2 rooms, so we were able to put our things in our kids room, but if we had not had that second room we would have been in a bind. Parking is an additional fee, the free wifi is only in the lobby. Also, roll aways are only available in a king room. We have 3 kids and requested a sleeper sofa or a roll away for the 2nd room that had 2 doubles. Was not told until after I booked that it was not an option. The staff was not helpful in any way, shape, or form, and I had to get a manger to find out why our room wasn't ready. (The front desk kept telling me it was being cleaned - after 2 hours of waiting for them to finish cleaning the room we were finally told that the previous occupants were still in the room) If all you need is a place to sleep that is close to Michigan Ave/Downtown, then this is fine. The rooms are very small, no counters in the bathroom. I personally will not stay there again.

Pictures are deceiving

The rooms were very small and there were no amenities in them. The pictures on the internet look nothing like the actual rooms. They only show pictures of the suites to make the regular rooms look much larger. You can't even fit two people in the bathroom.
