We usually stay at Homewood Suites which is a couple of blocks away but it was fully booked for the 2 nights we had in Chicago this trip. We chose this hotel based on location and price and were not disappointed. That said, our room was tiny - a real squeeze for 2 adults, 1 child and 3 suitcases! We used the room to sleep & shower and spent the rest of our time out and about so the lack of space was not a huge problem. Breakfast came from Dunkin Donuts across the street. The biggest drawback to this hotel was that our room was directly opposite the lifts which had a loud bell that we heard every time the lift stopped on our floor - day and night!
A few tips on location [corner of St. Clair & Ohio]...
1. The free trolley bus to Navy Pier stops 1 block from this hotel on St. Clair & Illinois.
2. Easy transit to Lincoln Park, including the Zoo - walk up to Michigan and get the 151 bus.
3. Red Line 'EL' is at Grand & St. Clair - 5 blocks walk - take this to Addison for Wrigley Field.
If you're looking for a plush hotel room and plan to hang out in the room, look elsewhere. If you need an acceptable place to lay your head and the price is right, this is not a bad choice.
