Not the dirtiest place, but close to it. The hair in the tub was awful & this place had blood stains on the comforter. What's worse it that housekeeping didn't know how to make a bed- the clean sheets were placed on top of the gross blanket with blood on it, leaving the blanket to be directly on anyone in that bed!! Ew. The curtains were very old with holes in them so even if you did try to close them at night (since Chi town never sleeps) it let a majority of the light through. The noise was horrible and I can normally sleep in places fairly easily - I hardly got rest at this hotel. The gym is 1 treadmill 1 elliptical 1 "multi cable" area that didn't function well (old, rusty & dirty). Housekeeping was cleaning it while I was in there & she wiped down the foot pedals of the elliptical & vacuumed. Nothing else. It smelled horrible & didn't have a temp control so heat was blowing frequently and the room was only about 8x10? If anyone else would've been in there it would be crowded.
Staff was nice though & Internet was slow in the room (intermittent connectivity). Pizza place was connected & it was reasonably priced & food was decent.
