Wifey and I stayed here for two nights this past weekend and loved it! Lots of pros and really no cons
Location! Situated right in the heart of the theater district was perfect for us as we were planning to see a show (which happened to be in the same building as the hotel). A very nice advantage is that it is situated less than 50 yards from the Monroe stop on the "L" train's Blue Line. This is convenient because it is the Blue Line that brings folks in from O'Hare. No need to transfer, just hop on at O'Hare and hop off at Monroe. it's about a 45 minute trek on the train.
It's within a short walk to the Magnificent Mile as well which was very convenient. However, if you go bananas while shopping and don't want to slog all of your bags by foot back to the hotel, you can just grab the Red Line at Chicago, which is on the North end of the Mile, and get off on the Monroe Red Line stop which is also very close to the hotel.
The staff! Very nice people at the bell check as well as the front desk. They gave us a room on the 20th floor which had an excellent view and was high enough to avoid the noise from the street.
This was especially nice for us considering it was St. Paddy's Day, The Big 10 Tournament, as college Spring Break... In spite of just a complete crush of crazy drunks, the staff was kind and patient.
The room! The room was perfect for what we needed. Not overly huge but big enough to move around in and very, very clean.
Breakfast was included and was adequate. Very typical hotel food. Good but nothing to write Momma about. The cookies after 3pm were a nice touch! Nom!
Cons. No real cons that I can write about.
Overall, considering how crazy the weekend was with all that was going on, the staff was excellent, the location was perfect and the rooms were surprisingly quiet!
