Clean rooms and very friendly staff! The property was clean and located near the interstate but I really didn't hear any noise. The location was great! Close to a mall, stores, a movie theater, and many restaurants! Free wi-fi! They have an indoor and outdoor pool. Closer drive to Midway Airport than O'Hare.
