“Wonderful!”
Reviewed 28 April 2012

Being Chicago-area residents, we've stayed in a bunch of downtown hotels. This was our first stay here and it's already become one of our favorites. Great location, friendly and helpful staff, very clean, and all with a great price. We had just a couple of minor complaints. The sink is outside the room where the commode and the tub/shower are, but they share the same light switch, which can be awkward. There seemed to be no vent in the room with the shower, and the light was dim in there. Water pressure could be better and they definitely need more towel bars/hooks. But, the free breakfast was more than adequate and, as I said before, the staff was great, the location wonderful and the price reasonable. We'll be back!

Thank you for your response! We are happy you had a great stay. Also, I have been in contact with our engineering department about the dim lighting and water pressure. I agree that this is something we can improve upon for future travelers or upon your return.

Stayed there 5 days for a family spring break get away. Suites are decent size and nice. Good location only two blocks to Michigan Avenue and lots of great resturants within walking distance. Also Navy Pier is only about a 5-10 minutes walk. Front desk was always very helpful on giving you advice on where to eat and how to get places. Good free breakfast with lots of choices. Great value and would stay there again.

Very nice, clean, modern decor, and large breakfast area. Close to shopping, Navy Pier, and train. We even walked to the Shedd and Natural History museum but it was a bit of a hike. Very pleased with the price compared to other downtown hotels.

Thank you for your review and 5 out of 5 stars! I am impressed you all walked to the Shedd Aquarium and Natural History Museum. You are right, it is a long walk. It is over 3 miles one way! Next time, to save your legs from walking, there is a bus that picks up on Michigan Avenue and drops off right in front of the aquarium.

Well, we've stayed here in the past because of the location... And that's why we stayed here again, but this time was less than great. To be fair, the staff is friendly, the place is clean and bright, and is nicely decorated. Here's where it gets bad: THE NOISE! We were lucky enough to have a room in the back of the hotel, which backs up to a loading dock of a hospital. All night there were trucks loading and unloading, dumpsters being emptied and slammed on the ground, horns honking, if there was a noise to be made, it was heard in our room. We were probably woken up once an hour. Like I said, I've stayed here in the past, but have only had rooms in the front of the hotel - the street side. It's quiet there. The back - not so much. If you stay here, ask for a room in the front, you won't regret it.

Room Tip: Ask for a room in the front (street side).

Thank you for your response. It is extremely unfortunate you did not receive a quiet night sleep. It is hard to predict the potential noise from the hospital or city noise. For the most part we do receive minimal complaints considering our downtown location. However, if you ever stay with us in the future and are disappointed with your room location, please inform the front desk immediately and we will do our best to find you room that is most suitable for your request. I hope you travel back to Chicago soon.

If you want a clean no frills room in a relatively quiet hotel, in a good location at a good price this is your place. The rooms are quite small, but clean and modern. You won't get any extras here. There is no paper delivered to your room, the towels are postage stamp size and the put about 8 tiny pillows on each bed. However, for people who want a nice clean room at a great price for downtown Chi. this is a great choice. And with the location, all the frills you need are close by anyway.
