We were looking for a place to stay in the city that was affordable and near Lakeview. This hotel has a great European feel. The staff -- especially Sandoor and Jeremy -- were helpful, courteous and went out of their way to help us feel comfortable.
If you are a AAA member, there's a 10-percent discount, which is great.
PROS: Quaint, comfortable, clean room. Nicely furnished. Flat screen TV. Close to Lakeview/Lincoln park/Wrigleyville/Boystown. Room service menu with burgers, soups available at affordable prices. Free wifi. Free coffee/tea/hot chocolate available 24 hours. Free newspapers. Great lobby area with fireplace. Helpful staff.
CONS: Not the quietest place. Expensive parking ($22 a day with in/our privileges); spotty wifi. Hard to control room temperatures because of radiator heat.
Thanks to the reviews here, we asked for a room on the quiet side and on the top floor. Amy was great in helping us book the room. But, as others have said, the sound proofing isn't the best and we could still hear the train and the train announcements all the time in addition to the person in the room next door coughing. However, it wasn't unbearable. The hotel is close to one of the busiest gay bars in Chicago, but we didn't hear much noise coming from there, even with the window open.
Overall a great place to stay if you are not a light sleeper.
