I was looking for a nice, clean, affordable hotel conveniently located between Navy Pier and Lincoln Park in Chicago, and the Whitehall Hotel was the perfect choice! All the museums and parks that we wanted to visit were within a pleasant walking distance (within 1 mile) from the hotel, but if need be, there's plenty of buses or taxis to catch less than a block away on Michigan Ave.
The staff was friendly, helpful, and welcoming, the room was clean, comfortable, and decorated in lovley, warm earth tones, and the bed was very comfortable. The room was surprisingly quiet for being in the middle of a big city. The room was eqipped with a large-screen t.v. The only problem with the t.v. was that the signal sometimes became lost or "pixilated", so we had to change channels, but that was no big problem since we weren't visiting Chicago to watch t.v.! The room also had a mini-bar and a small refridgerator, which seemed to be locked (at least we couldn't figure out how to open it). The in-room WiFi was very fast, which we very much appreciated.
In the morning there was a copy of USA World News Today at our door - much appreciated for the train ride back home! There's no breakfast restaurant in the hotel, but they offer complimentary coffee. There's a pancake restaurant just a couple of blocks north that worked just fine for us.
