“Nice hotel”
Reviewed 10 August 2013

This is a nice hotel, and because we were with a wedding party, we got a good price right in the heart of Chicago! The room was small, however, and the dress code actually stressed us out a little bit due to how strict it was, but overall, we had a very nice time. The wedding was also held in the hotel, and that was GORGEOUS! Food was amazing, reception room was beautiful, cake was phenomenal. There was also another wedding happening on the floor beneath us, but we couldn't hear it all. The tiled bathroom shower was beautiful, too! Overall, great value!

Room Tip: Suites offer significantly more space.

Had a small but nicely appointed room. View was of other apartments quite close. But the location is great and just a short block from the CTA Blue Line to Ohare. It is a bit on the older side but nonetheless quite nice. Very comfortable mattress which was my favorite asset. The surrounding public rooms and library are lovely and comfortable. All in all for this location, in downtown Chicago, it was a nice 3 day stay.

A perfect spot to schedule an event. The service is impeccable and the gracious surroundings are sure to steep your guests in Chicago history. Easy to schedule speakers because everyone loves the ULC and jump at the chance to add it to their credentials. Book with confidence.

3 nights with a visit to the WigWam restaurant and the bar. Both had terrific service, both were reasonably priced for downtown Chicago, and of course - it's the ULC, so there's an automatic 20% gratuity on everything. Upside - no need to calculate tip or carry cash. Everything also direct bills to the room for a summarized view of expenditure during the stay - helpful for business. (hint - would hang on to the detailed receipt from the occasion.)
Overall the rooms are great, and the service in the facility top-notch.. it's the front-end reception that needs a bit of work. Admittedly, it has the appeal of a low-end motel when you walk up to the counter.. get past the check-in, and enjoy the stay!

Room Tip: Preference is away from the side closest to the Federal building - view is quite limited on that end...

4 nights here in June, and couldnt have asked for any more. The room was big, comfy and well equipped (terrible lighting, but that's the only complaint). Wifi was fast and free. The food is good, the bar was excellent.

the best part is the gym which is really well equipped, and the pool which is amazing - very retro, original and really quiet - perfect for escaping to after a long day in the office!

the only complaint is the 'dress code' which means you cant wear jeans in any of the restaurants, including the bar.

I stayed here for 3 nights. Overall I was rather disappointed after reading the very high ratings here. The hotel is clean and my room was a decent size but it is rather basic and shabby.
The food is really not that great and the service was terrible throughout my stay. I am under the impression that the staff feel you are they one that should feel great full for being allowed to stay there as a paying guest.
I am quite used to dress codes being ex army but to be honest the level of requirements set by ULC is out of context it's current state, delusions of grandure spring to mind.
I will not stay here again.
