“Great value, great location”
Reviewed 9 August 2014 via mobile

This was a pleasant surprise. Trendy and fresh but not overdone. Location is great, walking distance to everything. We recommend whole foods a couple of blocks north and lunch/dinner is nice just on the corner at Weber grill. Coming from a country were eating out is expensive, both mentioned are great value. Regarding the hotel itself I must complement on the free coffee and newspaper delivered to the room in the morning, just remember to "order" from the helpful people in the reception the evening before. The rooms are what one can expect, bed was fine, WiFi worked satisfactory and the TV channels were plentiful. Don't miss the hot tub in the "cellar". After a long days walk (for us in quite chilly temperatures) the hot tub was a very nice feature of the hotel.

My wife and I stayed here this week while we moved our daughter to the Chicago area and when we go back to visit, we'll stay here again. The best service was the knock and drop morning coffee. They deliver your morning coffee so you don't have to fumble about with one of those silly in room machines. The front desk staff were pleasant and professional with spot on recommendations. You walk into the door and you can feel the trendy energy that the "W" used to have. The bar has an impressive selection of Single Malts and Bourbon, if that's your thing. Definitely one of the best boutique hotels I've stayed in in a long time.

The room is on the small side with modern decor and the bed is large and comfortable. I was on the fifth floor and the room was extremely quiet. Enjoyed having morning coffee delivered in a thermus by the hotel staff to your door and the pastry shop on the first floor was great. Across the street is a terrific grocery store that sells fresh squeezed orange juice, fresh breads and cheese, prepared meals and has a good selection of wine. Walking from this location to many major restaurants, magnificient mile (shopping) and architectural boat tours is easy from the hotel location. For those going abit afield, the doorman is only too happy to whistle a cab for you.

Sometimes its great to have a fresh hotel, that feels different. Its just funky all round - but totally not overdone. My room have a table and bar benches - a super cool minibar and a spacious bathroom. The sleep quality was great, and even the flying acrobat statue in the courtyard added its own touch. Internet was quick at no extra cost. A bakery in the lobby open from 6am hits the spot, and Eataly next door is a winner (Though sadly open only from 10am). Front desk hospitality was not always there - but all others compensated. Amazing value for money as well. Warmly recommended.

You cannot find better place for exploring Chicago. It is clean and effective. A whirlpool and a thermos of coffee (american...) is a proper way of starting a day. The bed was comfortable. I would give it "5" but a small room, no view and no lobby

We spent 3 nights here in July 2014, I have to say this is one of my favourite hotels I have ever stayed at.

ROOM- We were on the top floor in a room with 2 queen beds. Two windows, a view of a parking garage and a view of other windows. The room was absolutely spotless and was left looking spotless each day after cleaning. There is a full length mirror and fantastic lighting in the room. The bed was so comfortable and the sheets were very soft. I was quite impressed with the size of the room as well. There was a little sitting area, fridge and microwave which came in very handy. Chalkboards outside each room were also a great novelty for us. We liked seeing what creative things our neighbours had put up each day.


BATHROOM- decent size, only 2 minor issues was that there is no counter space in the bathroom and the water pressure isn't that great- its ok though. Lighting is great and there is a fan. Loved the light up lip print and overall décor of the room.

STAFF- Were very helpful and professional! They went out of their way to assist us at all times. I also loved how quick they were at their job- eg/checking in and checking out was such a simple straight process- as it should be at all hotels but often is not the case.

LOCATION- Could not be in a better location! Right near a subway station and also walking distance to most attractions. Plenty of food places right near the hotel- be sure to visit Pizzeria Uno.

INTERNET/BUSINESS CENTRE/LAUNDRY- There is free, fast wifi. A business centre is located downstairs with printers. There is also a washing machine and dryer downstairs. From memory it was $2 to wash and $2 to dry. We were very glad to see laundry facilities after travelling for a few weeks.

Yes, the hotel décor is suited for a younger crowd- but we saw all types of people staying here. From business travellers, families and even older couples. I would recommend this hotel to anyone visiting Chicago regardless of age.

This hotel was exactly what we we're looking for in Chicago, it was modern and different but reasonably priced. The cool wall art made it different from the standard hotel and was a nice change. The free morning coffee was also a great touch, but unfortunately it only arrived 1 out of 3 days. The location is within easy reach of quite a few attractions. Chicago is a lovely city to walk around and this hotel is within a good walking distance of the pier, magnificent mile shopping and sears tower. We would recommend this hotel to couples or groups of friends.
