I've stayed at conference and family visits at many hotels in Chicago--Swissotel, Hyatt Regency, Intercontinental, Sheraton, Monaco, and more--and while I loved all those places, I was really struck by how well this place satisfied my needs for a two day stay at probably half or less the price. I knew I didn't need overnight dry-cleaning, spas, really much at all but a place to overnight and see the city. I also noted that the place offered free parking. I booked a great ($150ish rate including taxes and parking) and figured, well, if the place is a bit rough, who cares? Well the place was perfectly clean, they had all kinds of facilities that I was not aware of (and had no time to use, so cannot report), and here's a topper: there was no fridge in the room I booked, but I liked the food so much at a place I tried that I brought it back and called to see if they had a fridge somewhere where I could bring my stuff down to keep it overnight. Instead, they said: We'll hunt up a fridge and bring it to you, which they did in ten minutes and at NO CHARGE. Everything clicked about this place. At its price point, I don't know its equal in this hot part Chicago.
