Pedro at the front desk was amazing. When I made the reservations they entered the wrong last name, they had the wrong email address. So I didnt have my confirmation #. Pedro searched for it and found it in a quick manner. It was a great stay!!

Return trip never disappoints. Location, room, free coffee (lattes with extra espresso shots) are the bomb! Staff is friendly, building historic. It's all just great every time we stay at this amazing property.

I stayed there for three nights. The location is good. The nearby landmarks made it easy to find. Roman is a very nice staff. He changed me to another room with fantastic view when I found the original room is not clean.

The location in the heart of The Loop is a walk from all of the main attractions of the city. Our room was very clean and modern. The staff was helpful and courteous. We will return! There were no better values than this one in the center of the city.
