“our favorate Chicago hotel”
Reviewed 16 September 2013

We have been coming to Chicago for many years and stay here when ever we can. The location is convenient to the Loop, Michigan Ave and any place you want to eat. Not the flashest hotel but it is CLEAN and staff is friendly. My wife likes the parking since you car is accessible for putting shoping packages away and not taking them to the room. The bar is friendly and comfortable.

Great location, very clean, comfortable rooms. The best part is the service. The front desk personnel will go above and beyond to fulfill any requests. So a special thank you to Nikita, Michelle and Amanda for making our stay special.

This hotel is nothing special. It is a small, older hotel. The rooms are clean but pretty drab looking. Our biggest complaint was the noise from the street below. We were on the 6th floor (top floor) and the horns, sirens, and general traffic noise made for a poor night's sleep. The staff was friendly and helpful. Overall this hotel is just okay, but if we travel to Chicago again we would stay somewhere else.

Thank you for writing a review of your experience with us. We're very sorry you didn't enjoy your stay with us. We understand that noise in downtown Chicago can sometimes be an issue. But we hope that you will return (and be sure to request a room away from the street) and we'd love another opportunity to make your stay in Chicago great.

We stayed there August 2013. We found the hotel to be just perfect, all staff very polite and helpful. We talked every morning with Wallace, he is the conseiure of the of the hotel. Wallace was so helpful and really guided us on when to go to certain areas, and things that we should see and places where we should eat. He was so positive in his approach that everything was just so easy and great.
We used the free parking that is staffed 24/7 with in and out privileges which was a real benefit.
Hotel room was great, nice and clean with great service, no complaints.
We will stay again at this hotel when we visit Chicago again for sure.

Room Tip: get a room on the upper floors as it is quieter from the street noise, this really does make a diffe...

I love the location of this hotel in Chicago. There are over 50 restaurants and bars within a four block walk. The best part about this hotel is the free valet parking and the proximity to the train. The rooms are well maintained and the staff has always been fantastic. No grouches at this hotel.

My 26 year old daughter and I stayed here on a vacation and really thought it was great. Convenient location, can walk everywhere we wanted to go in the Loop area, good staff, spacious room, clean and comfortable. Best of all for me, since I drove in to meet her, in and out privileges for guests. We really would recommend it and would stay here again on future trips to Chicago.

We were looking for a reasonbly priced hotel in the downtown area of Chicago and we found it. The hotel is an older building but it is in a wonderful location for exploring Chicago. Lots of great attractions in the general area. The staff were wonderful when we needed help with anything. There is also a great little pizza place in the hotel which shouldn't be missed. The beds were very comfortable and the rooms were roomy (a little dated but no complaints). The area is very busy at night so some noise is expected but if you want to be close to the action, you just go with it. Overall, we would come back again. We loved Chicago and were very surprised at how clean the whole downtown to the waterfront is.

Room Tip: Rooms at the back of the hotel may be quieter.
