I'd recommend this hotel.
Pluses: the location was excellent, the staff friendly, the rooms large, the cost reasonable for a big-city hotel.
Neutrals: the breakfast was adequate (but certainly a value compared to buying at a restaurant).
Negatives: the rooms were dark. (I don't so much object to the color of the decor, which was maroon-ish, as to the use of fluorescent bulbs in every fixture. Hey, I'm as green as the next guy, but face it, fluorescents cast a cold, dim, gloomy light.) And the common areas were small and dreary. (The entry off the street almost looks like the freight entrance. And the combined front desk/breakfast room/business center was painfully small. For the first couple of days we were there, the presence of two tour groups plus the rest of the guests made breakfast seem like New Year's Eve on Times Square.)
All of that said, I do recommend the hotel. But third-best in Chicago? I really don't think so.More
