We stayed here the weekend of the Chicago Marathon (as most everything else in the city was booked). The location is very nice (Lincoln Park) and the neighborhood is very safe. The hotel itself is old and actually even has residents (they are harmless although a bit strange). There are plenty of restaurants, cinemas and bars close by -you won't be confined to your room in other words.
The rooms are very basic (no alarm clock, no extra pillows, 2 hangers) and as clean as they could be, given the fact that they are fairly old rooms. The bed was okay (thin mattress but thick comforter) and the shower worked quite well. All and all, it's like crashing at a college friend's old apartment.
