We used this hotel location to house ourselves and all of our wedding guests on our wedding night. The hotel itself is relatively clean and modern, especially considering its age and city location. Any of the rooms that are considered suites are quite spacious, again considering the city location, with plenty of room to 'hang out' as well as sleep. If you choose the standard Queen room though, this one is considerably less spacious.. leaving you barely enough room to move around. The breakfast that they offer is standard, but the food was of good quality.
Also something to keep in mind are the noise levels of the hotel. Most of my guests went sleepless due to either the noise of the street outside or the noise of the El station right next door. I would try and ask for a room at the back of the hotel as those were nice and quiet, facing an alley.
The reason that I have not given this hotel a higher rating is due to the parking situation as well as the overall knowledge of the staff. The hotel does not advertise this, but they offer only a limited amount of parking per day. When we arrived at the hotel, we were told that only 1 of the 2 rooms under our reservation could have parking. This was certainly not what we expected as we had driven 2 cars downtown. After driving to the parking garage though, we learned that it is only $2 more per day to park in the lot under the standard rates. We also learned that there are 2 lots, which no one offered or told us about, and they both use very different rules. Be sure to be very clear with the hotel staff about parking as they did not offer clear information to us or our guests and it caused a few headaches. Also be sure to check your bill. After telling us that we could not park both cars that night, they charged both of our rooms for parking anyhow. They just didnt have their act together where this was concerned.
