I received the Groupon special of $69/night which is a great deal for Chicago. The employees working here are absolutely awesome. Every time we walked in the building they greeted us with a "welcome back" and an elevator in the lobby was always waiting to take us upstairs. There are some structural issues based on it being an older building. The climate control in the room has two settings - heat or air. You cannot actually set the temperature you want - you either get piping hot or freezing cold and if you want cooler in the winter you can only get heat. It's set seasonally. Also the shower does not get really hot water, it's lukewarm at best. The beds are little creaky, the pillows aren't the softest. A light bulb was out in our bathroom, and the sinks didn't drain very well. But it's true that you get what you pay for. Overall, I had a good experience with friendly employees and I slept in the bed just fine even though it wasn't the most comfortable in the world.
