Another of the several small boutique hotels in renovated old buildings in downtown Chicago. Although the bathroom was ok (and clean), the room was tiny. A small desk was the only piece of furniture other than the bed and a little tiny table where they had placed a coffee maker and ice bucket (against a wall that did not even have an electrical outlet!) No luggage stand in the room, so we had to put our suitcases on the desk. The queen bed was less than a foot from one wall and the foot of the bed was about 2 feet from another wall, so was a little tricky for nocturnal trips to the bathroom. The closet could not have been 18" wide, and they crammed a safe and small cabinet in there (since there was no room for a dresser in the room?) which took up all the hanging clothes space. A nice touch were the two miniature reading lights on either side of the headboard. Too bad one of them didn't work, since there wasn't much light in the room. The only saving grace was the large frosted window in the bathroom, which added some natural light in the morning and a ledge to put your toiletries, since there was little room around the sink and little shelf space under it. Good thing we were only staying for one night! Oh, and did I tell you that the walls were paper thin?
