If you want to be near everything and away from the hustle of downtown, this is a good option. A little outdated but convenient for the sensible buyer. Near parks, museum, shops, supermarkets and restaurants.

My boyfriend and I stayed in this hotel this past weekend and it was one of the worst places I have ever stayed. The room and hallways are very uninviting and the carpeting is very old. The curtains on the windows as well as the shower curtain is disgusting and old, need to be replaced. For some reason we had...

This hotel is being rennovated and I cannot recommend it in its present condition. The elevator and hallways are a bit creepy and if you're in a room that is facing the side street you will not sleep well when trucks roll by in the early morning. The room was in a state of partial rennovation: bathroom and beds were...

The surly check in at the desk, was only the beginning. Ended up in room 922 on the top floor, when we entered the room, it sounded as if there were someone in the shower in the next room, then the noise got louder. Perhaps we were situated near the compressor, but at night it sounded like a freight train...

not for the price charged and i didnt get the complementary breakfast the room is small and dated, and they are trying to re furbish. it just cant justify the price of being a boutique hotel without the amenities and complements that usually go with it. nothing in the lounge to sit on, free continental breakfast etc.

You can't beat this location within easy walking distance of major attractions (Adler Planetarium, Field Museum, Art Institute, Shedd Aquarium, Grant Park, the Lake Michigan lakefront). There are several colleges (Columbia, Roosevelt, DePaul) in the neighborhood which makes it an excellent location if you're visiting one of them. There are many places to eat within walking distance.

I have been using this hotel for some years. I was quite happy to hear about the renovation as the establishment needed it, especially including the soundproofing of windows. But one thing has changed and not in good. It's the breakfast ! Before it was a buffet style. With the new direction it becomes an American Breakfast Platter served at...
