Nothing about this place says "Best Western", and that's a good thing. The hotel is not chain-like, but has more of a historic B&B feel to it. The staff were very friendly and helpful, and pointed us in the direction of some excellent restaurants within walking distance.
In my previous visits to Chicago, I always opted for a big hotel near Michigan Avenue. I'm glad we switched. The Junior suite room has 2 full size beds, and a living area with sofa, chair, and desk adjacent to the sleeping area. The decor is urban modern, and the bathroom mirror gives the wildest highlight reflections to your pupils.
The continental breakfast was nothing special, but the price was right.
So, stay downtown for more money and a low-ceilinged, small room with no character? Or stay a few minutes North in a charming neighborhood in a spacious suite with free breakfast? I know how I'll decide next time I'm in Chi-town.
