Thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The warm, friendly, and efficient staff added to the pleasure of attending my 50th class reunion at Moody Bible Institute. We found people to be friendly and helpful especially since I use a cane when walking.

Troubles with the card reader for the lock on the room door...needed 4 keys to get it to work, even after cleaning it. The front desk staff was very helpful. Breakfast was included but the quality of the food was fair.

Good stay. Set up is a bit less comfortable if weather is wet as you go up to hotel through garage. But good location, responsive staff and quality rooms. A good choice for cost effective stay downtown.

Enjoy your stay! The staff will do anything to make your stay enjoyable, from the bellman to the barkeep. Free coffee in the lobby and the restaurant is steps away. Not a big place so you will be attended to. The hotel is within walking distance to the heart of Chicago.

Hello, The American Girl store is about a 10 block walk from the hotel and is very easy to reach. You'll also find many other shopping options along Michigan Avenue as you walk from the hotel to American Girl.

Hello, Yes, it is safe to walk around the city including from our hotel to Willis Tower and Navy Pier. There is a free trolley to Navy Pier that picks up only 2 blocks from the hotel, if you chose not to walk. Chicago is a large city, so like in any city you should watch your personal items etc, but our area is very safe.

Hello As noted, we do not offer a shuttle. There is a public shuttle, but if two or more are traveling a taxi or Uber would be the least expensive option. You can also take the subway which will drop your off about 3 blocks away.

Hello, We do not have our own shuttle, but if two or more guests are traveling a taxi or uber is most economical. Most attractions are within walking distance. You can pick up tours from directly across the street. There is an Indian Restaurant less then one block away as well as many other options.

"Very clean and pillows and bed was soft. Suite was ample and very roomy "
