In our travels, we find that a willing staff overcomes some other shortcomings. This is a neighborhood hotel in the Lincoln Park area, well located near lots of shops and public transport. Buses that take you downtown to Michigan Ave. or the Loop are steps away. The brown line L is a ten minute walk.
The property is old, but somewhat updated. Our room was large, but decorated in a somewhat somber color scheme. We stayed in two different rooms, two nights in each. Parking is in a public garage, a half-block down an alley, a drawback. We arrived before midnight, and the night desk clerk Juan was very helpful in helping us find the garage entrance, and guiding us into a tight parking spot. The helpfulness and training of the staff was a real bright spot. In this neighborhood, there are not that many hotels to pick from. We would likely rebook here.
This is a good choice location for someone wanting to be near downtown, at a lower cost. Downtown hotel parking is extremely costly.
Continental breakfast was included, but it is pretty basic.More
