This hotel was in a really good location, could walk to places/parks in the city and if you didn't want to walk the taxi fare wasn't too much.

Didn't have any ceiling lights in the hotel so was dark at nighttime, and if we're being fussy the shower wasn't hot enough. But would stay here again.

The hotel provided GREAT SERVICE, was clean and comfortable, but needs a little upgrading or modernized look. I was extremely pleased with the location, amenities and the staff. Except for the Lollapalooza attendees staying at the hotel and being a bit rambunctious (loud at night) our stay was enjoyable.

This hotel was in a great location. Only a 2 minute walk from the Hilton. Close to the Waterfront, museums. The hotel was a bit grubby. I was a little worried about the security- seemed that anyone could come in the hotel and someone wasn't always at the front desk to see. The pool area was in dire need of an overhaul. It is not heated and unfortunately it was too cold to go swimming. The room seemed clean. We were only in our room to sleep as we were so busy touring the city. For the price we paid, it was ok.

Room Tip: Higher floors have a better view and make sure that the room is on the front side of the hotel

Though a bit dated, this hotel had a fabulous downtown location, was extremely clean and had a very helpful and accommodating staff. Appreciated the safe and affordable valet parking as well. Very satisfied and recommend it for your next stay.

In need of renovation, but it was a safe place to stay. The staff was excellent and we could not ask for a better location. Close to the museums, Soldier Field and the Metra. Also great eating places within a square block of the hotel entrance.

We stayed last week July 21 - July 24 and wished we had another place. The cleaning staff was very noisy in the morning. The manager the one day was very inconsiderate. I fell in front of the hotel on their rough uneven sidewalk and scraped my knee, elbow and hand. There was a gentleman there who saw me and said I was about the 4th person who had fallen. My husband and him helped me up. A nice lady gave me some band aids. The restaurant manager saw me and came to ask if I was ok. He told me to go tell the manager my information. When I told her she acted like she didn't believe me and wanted to know who told me to tell her. I told her who. She claims she called maintenance and would do something. Nothing was done. I spoke to 2 other workers, the offered us water, pop or whatever we wanted from the restaurant. Gave us free breakast coupons. The girl promised when we checked a manager would call. Never received a call back and said if we wanted to get money back we would have to go through hotels.com where we made our reservations from. Now I have to call the manager and hotels.com. Another couple things, their pool was dirty so couldn't swim, the tv didn't have anything worth watching and the air conditioner was very loud when it went one. They also charged $100 for amenities when we checked in and still hasn't been credited back. Should sue them. Couldn't get connected to internet either.

Room Tip: Not at this hotel!
