Mark Twain Hotel
Ranked #169 of 191 Hotels in Chicago
Reviewed 8 September 2008

I actually lived in the Mark Twain for 2.5 years while in grad school. Is it the best place to live? No. However, it was what I had since I do not get along with my family.

It is not the traditional hotel in the sense of a quality inn type of joint, however, there is a room, a TV, a private washroom and the place is good for in betweeners who are in town for short work trips and want to save money or just want a private room over night after the club.

The Gold Coast neighborhood is beautiful.

Takeaways: The saxaphonist playing nightly outside my window and the summer Farmer's Market that I could see from my window and participate in.

Just so everyone knows, this is a transient/SRO hotel. What this means is that you'll be rooming with generally unsavory. It's a safe neighborhood, but not this hotel -- its not intended for tourists. STAY AWAY.
