“Nice and clean hotel, with small rooms”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 April 2012

Hotel was nice. Very good business center. No free parking.. Surrounded by the one way streets.
Room was a little smaller. But, overall it was a nice experience. Slight noisy.

Just came back from my 4 nights at this hotel. It was good for the price that I bid for $75/night. I think it is a bargain at that location. It is convenient, Whole foods, MacDonald's close by, and Red-Chicago Subway station is only a couple of blocks away. The N. Michigan Ave., is also a few blocks away.

The room was quite small but clean. They also provide H2O bath products which I thought was excellent. There was one dubious report of bed bugs in the bed bug registry so I checked the bed thoroughly when I arrived and there were none to be found...Yay!

There were some previous reviews about a church opposite the hotel that provide free meals for the homeless, and required a pass to get into the hotel after 9pm which I thought was totally untrue. You need a hotel card to operate the elevator after 9pm that's all, I had no problem getting into the lobby after mid-night and there is always somebody at the front desk at night.
Also, they forgot to mention that there are a couple of very high-end condo buildings just across the road from the hotel.

However, what they said about the bathroom sink was true, I don't know what the designer was thinking, it looks chic but totally impractical. The sink is so shallow that you will have a hard time putting a glass under the tap. Also the room was very small, definitely not enough for 2 people. It was just slightly bigger than my single room in Florence, Tokyo and Osaka. And yes, I keep banging my knee against the bed frame like other reviewers have said and the air conditioning was very noisy, fortunately, I didn't have to turn it on most of the time. And my window was facing the building under construction next door so there was no view whatsoever. Thank goodness that they don't seem to be working on that building at all otherwise I think it will be very noisy during the day.

Room Tip: Do ask for 2 beds if you have 2 or more people in a room.

While the room was very small, it was very comfortable. The whole hotel was clean and nicely decorated. I walked from there to the art museum and to the Navy Pier. The staff was helpful and friendly. I ate dinner at the bar area, the food was amazing! The bar tender was very funny and everyone in the bar area was having a good time.

I had read some of the negative reviews of this hotel, but it was so much better than expected. The adjectives I would use to describe it are serene, comfortable, appealing, gracious. The rooms were a little small, but what to do people expect at this price and in this location? The decorating was very cool and modern, but not intimidating. The employees were courteous and helpful. The bathroom was large. And somehow they make the sheets smell so good! I would definitely stay here again.

Room Tip: Try to avoid rooms near the elevator. I could hear the elevator beep when it arrived at our floor
