“Good value”
Reviewed 28 August 2014 via mobile

The price of this hotel was cheap compared to others close by. Rooms are clean and staff friendly. Walking distance (although it is a good hike) to Millennium Park and Magnificent Mile. One thing to be aware when budgeting vacation is parking is not included and is fairly expensive.

This motel really surprised me. It was affordable in downtown Chicago which can be hard to find. My room was great. Clean and spacious. Although this is clearly an older motel don't be fooled it is very nice and updated after you leave the lobby. Would certainly consider staying there again.

We were 11 of us and stayed here for 3 nights. It is a good value hotel and has good location. The service of the front desk was varying ..check-in went smooth but with no smile. But the next two days we had staff greeting us with big smile and provide us with good information about the area. Upon our return we were surprised with unmade rooms!! Hotel Car parking was way expensive. Also we did not like that the rate did not include breakfast although we enjoyed Yolk breakfast/lunch restaurant near by. Out of all hotels stayed in in this trip.. this one we ranked it low. But that is just my group comparison for the 8 hotels we stayed in in our 25 days adventure!! In the end it is a good hotel and we would stay in it again if we visit Chicago again.

We didn't want to spend too much money in this trip, but we really wanted to stay in Chicago. Our room had a view to Lake Michigan, we had the chance to see from our window the Chicago Marathon that was going on there. Close the Aquarium, Grant Park. Metro Station nearby and the best part: an access to a restaurant. Chicago was freezing and after 4pm, it was impossible to stay outside, so we took this access and had a great meal, without being frozen.

Situated within walking distance of the Museum Campus (Shed Aquarium and Field Museum), Soldiers Field, Navy Pier, and with Grant Park just across Michigan Avenue, you can't beat the location. Sure, it's an older hotel, however our room was a well maintained corner room overlooking Lake Michigan on the eighth floor. The bathroom was split room arrangement with a stool & shower room off the main sink & vanity area which included a small coffee maker and hair dryer. The sleeping area had a single queen bed with a comfortable mattress with a duvet covering, a flat sheet, and four small bed pillows. A small open closet, ironing board with iron, a small room safe, a flat screened TV, small microwave, a fridge, two upright chairs, and a desk completed the room set-up. The room itself was clean and well maintained and the individual air-conditioning/heating unit worked well.

A lack of overall privacy would be my main complaint; however, we were able to hear conversations from next-door neighbors both across the hallway and through the adjoining room doorway which connected us. The other privacy issue involved sheers that would not completely close on one of the two large picture windows located 90 degrees apart on the outside walls of our corner room. Other possible 'issues' include 2 small elevators and staggered ice & vending machines on even/odd numbered floors. As we didn't use the pool or workout facilities and arrived by cab, I cannot offer any insight here. Lastly, we had no issues with the free wifi service which we used throughout our stay

Although the two female staff members we encountered did not go out of their way to be friendly, I felt that this was more of a 'survival in the big city' skill, than anything else. We did not make use of the hotel restaurant during our two night stay, however I should probably mention that it did not serve dinner on Thursday evening. Not to worry as there are MANY other options for breakfast, lunch, and dinner within walking distance of this hotel...

Room Tip: Ask for a corner room on a high floor overlooking Lake Michigan… This location will put you above mo...

I have stayed at the Grant Park location before and the last time I was greeted with bad customer service and front desk employees that just seemed over there job in November 2013. I decided to give the hotel another chance and I was pleasantly surprised to see that some changes were made. The hotel is now no longer allows smoking in rooms and there were different people at the front desk. Check in was a smooth process,even with there only being one person covering the lunch hour.Kenneth was a rockstar! He gave me ideas of where to have dinner,greeted customer as they came in. The reason this stay was average because the same young lady that gave me not so great service last time did so again. The first time she may have been having a bad day, but for her attitude just really stinks.I did'y catch her name(not sure if she was even wearing a name tag, but she was shorter,african-american,and wore glasses) I walked up to the desk, wasn't really greeted or noticed and when she got to me her answer about late check out was dry and there was no alternative given. If you can't do a late check out fine, but at least offer the luggage service. The room had cigarette burns in the curtains and the only updated thing in the room was the bathroom mirror. It's a downtown hotel, so the decor should match.

The internet at this hotel sucks. Would log on and in an instant be kicked off. The bathroom could stand to be updated and the light coming in under the door to the hallway was excessive. Perhaps weather stripping at the bottom of the doors would reduce the light and hallway noises from other guests. The shower was great with plentiful hot water and the beds were very comfortable. The front desk staff were friendly and helpful. The parking rate was a little high but you have no choice if you are driving.
