This hotel is a mixed bag of really, really good features, and some less than ideal features. Would I stay here again? Yes with my family, no if it were just me or me and my husband. Starting with the good... the room is HUGE. We have 2 queen size beds in a very spacious room. It has a small kitchenette complete with refrigerator, small stove, dishwasher, microwave, and dishes/glassware. There's a small breakfast bar with counter stools. And get this... You get a stacked washer and dryer. Yes, you read that right. The decor is fine. I thought the beds were okay... a little bouncy when my husband or I turned over, but I slept well. Our view was nice... Could see the Chicago River very well. Great location and very friendly staff. Oh, and free wi fi was great, especially since all 4 of us are obsessively connected to the Internet.
What could possibly be wrong, you might ask. Well, it's an old hotel with some less than ideal physical features. Ceilings seem a little low, especially in the bathroom, and it still has a popcorn ceiling. The bathroom, while divided nicely between the vanity and tub/toilet room, is tiny. Although the vanity is nicely appointed with granite and a nice light fixture, it's small. One person, max. The tub/shower is basic, at best. Clean, but just a plain white acrylic surround with no place to hang washcloths. The tub is odd... the bottom of it is slightly rounded, so your feet are never completely flat against the tub floor. If I were to make one suggestion to the company, it would be to rip those tub/showers out and start over. The breakfast was okay, but the juice machine was broken when we were there and there was no other provision of juice.
So great for families (with slight caveat about the bathroom size) and fabulous location, but not so great if you're looking for a luxuriously appointed hotel.
