I booked this room through Southwest Airlines to get points, then read the reviews it got so initially I had an idea of what to expect. Despite all the poor reviews on rude staff, in the brief encounters I had at the desk, they were professional and pleasant. One morning I past the housekeeper in the hall and smiled with a "good morning" and only got a grunt sound back, but who cares?
The room was VERY small which was just right because it was only me. It was outdated but clean to its best ability. I will mention that the bed was short which I read in a previous review. I'm 5'8" and my feet hung over the edge past the ankles.
Pros: nice room for the price if you don't expect or need much. Walking distance to most attractions including the L train which will take you anywhere else. It was summer time when I was here and the small window AC unit was on the whole time and kept the room icy cold!!!
Cons: old run down structure with few amenities. WiFi is free but basically non existent in my room (9th floor). The elevators are very very slow. I suggest taking the stairs if you're not pulling luggage. The TV did not work.
Overall it was as I said "expected" after reading the reviews. There were a few pleasant surprises but mostly "you get what you paid for".
