Great location & value for money

The hotel is in a great location and as it is in a student area there are plenty of reasonable eating places close-by. The building must date from the 1920s and in truth some of the facilities show their age - the lift was slow to arrive and the furnishings in our room had been there for more than a few years. But - it has all that one might reasonably expect - comfortable bed, coffee-making facilities, en-suite bathroom etc, The only down-side for us was the surliness of the receptionist who dealt with us on our arrival - she was not happy in her work and created a poor impression. However, the other staff we met were absolutely fine, So we would stay there again.

Not the Taj Mahal but Comfortable

The Hotel is old but clean, helpful and friendly Staff, rooms clean and comfortable. The only comment I'd make is the noise, I was in a room at the front corner of the Hotel on the 9th floor, as the Hotel is old, no such thing as double glazing and the overhead train system below sometimes felt as if the train was coming into your room, the noise was so loud. Apart from this one negative, my stay was very good.

Hotel in great location just off

Hotel in great location just off Michan Avenue which has plenty of restaurants and within walking distance of M"magnificent mile. It is a pity it is very run down and the Reception staff not very friendly.

The hotel is a bit old, but everything

The hotel is a bit old, but everything is fully functional and clean. The hotel is walking distance from the Navy Pier and downtown shopping district if you don't mind the exercise. It's not super close, but it is close enough to walk or a cheap cab ride to these areas. There are two nice restaurants inside on the main floor which both had good food. I was very satisfied with the whole experience. Especially if your their to party, it's a great place to stay as there is various alcohol available for purchase right on the same block of the hotel (few doors down).

The hotel is in a great location

The hotel is in a great location and most of the staff with whom I interacted were very helpful and friendly. However, the house-keeping on several occasions left a lot to be desired. One day we were gone from the hotel from about 11 am until 4:30 pm and our room still wasn't serviced when we returned. Another day, we had no clean towels or extra toilet paper, and the tub has hair in in that did not belong to me or my grandson. One day, everything was perfectly done. A free "continental breakfast" comes with the room through a small connected eatery. The choices are small and when they run out, they run out. We arrived our last morning at 9:30 to no fresh fruit, no yogurt, no bagels. Since there were only 2 other choices (other than beverages), it was pastries and/or croissants. That was unsatisfactory.
