This hotel is very reasonably priced for Chicago, and was a cool find in some ways. The location is good except for the nasty closed hostel/restaurant next door. The hotel itself has a tiny lobby and hallway, but check in was super efficient.
Rooms are small-ish but perfectly adequate. The light from across the street was a bit of a nuisance the first night so I had to really block the shade and wedge something on it in the windowsill to avoid that light shining in my eyes.
No room service to speak of - a small menu of expensive breakfast items they will bring you with coffee, that's it. Didn't bother since there a supermarket a few doors down and a Starbucks on the corner.
Bathroom was nice except the water pressure was pretty low. The nightlight are these huge lips on the mirror which was creepy in a fun way.
Lack of storage in the room is an issue, I stayed for over a week and had nowhere to store stuff that has to be folded - ended up having to live out of a suitcase which I didn't much like.
Otherwise the hotel was fine, the bar was quite nice, and being able to use the shuttle service to the Housewares show (right around the corner) saved me a lot of money.
