The locaton of this hotel is perfect for a family vacation in Chicago. Parking is expensive (but no more so thany any other hotel in the city) so if you can leave your car at home, you won't need it anyway. CTA (Chicago public transit) is efficient and will take you just about anywhere from quite nearby. Red line trains from State street and Brown/Purple lines from Merchandise Mart are all less than a 5 minute walk. Bus stops for many attractions are also close by, (Museum campus bus south of the river on State, Lincoln park one block east of the hotel on Clark.) Be sure to download a PDF map from CTA to your mobile device and you can find a route just about anythere. I wish every city could figure out how to develop this great transit map.
Room prices are a good value for a downtown Chicago property, and you do get some extras for your dollar. A good breakfast (and light dinners weekdays) as well as a full kitchen in each room. These are great for the traverer on a budget, grocery stores are within a 5 minute walk and you can save on dining out for some meals. Rooms are spacious and our family of three had plenty of room in a one bedroom with a pullout couch in the living area.
The property is well maintained and the staff were friendly and helpful.
