“Lovely Boutique Hotel in a great location”
Reviewed 13 May 2014

I would definitely stay here again. This hotel is perfectly situated close to restaurants, Starbucks, Metro, and the lake. I was there for 3 nights in March 2014. Unlike some other reviewers we never heard our neighbors and things were very quiet even though a convention had booked most of the other rooms. We ate breakfast the 2nd morning and got a lot for our money, though it is expensive compared to San Antonio :-) After we returned to our room in the late afternoon we would walk around the neighborhood to see all the cool architecture and found a Frank Lloyd Wright house a couple blocks away. The decor is wonderful and fun, in fact that is one reason i booked here. The bathroom is small and without a tub, but we two ladies were fine with that. The room was clean, the beds perfect! Enjoy your stay.

Room Tip: we booked a "2 queen beds" room and i think it is larger than some others.

The great things were the service, the restaurant and the quiet pretty north are of the city.
The bad things that need improvement are the fact that you am hear the people in the room next to you perfectly if there is a door between. You can actually see light coming through under the door.the shower heads are not powerful.
The hotel is nice and has a key west feel.

*We stayed at this hotel for one night and we would stay again. We loved the beachy decor. The room was bright and cheerful and very clean. It was small but fine for what we needed it for, which was mainly just to sleep and shower. The only drawback was the smell in the hotel lobby and elevator - it smelled like sewage. Not a very welcoming odor. BUT, the room smelled fine and we could overlook it.

Thank you for sharing your comments and we will concede the smell in our Lobby was less that we aim to provide. We are diligently working to correct this issue and are happy it did not affect our guest rooms. We apologize for the inconvenience this may have caused but thank you for providing positive feedback aside from the smell.

Thank you for choosing our hotel and we hope you'll choose our Hotel Indigo brand for future travel needs.

Best wishes,

I have stayed at this hotel 4 times in the past two months, and I love it. They always remember me, and Chris at the front desk is always helpful and pleasant. The rooms are funky beach themed, which seems odd until you realize you are a three minute walk from a beach! Always very clean, and there is a fitness room and also spa services available. It is my Chicago home away from home.

Room Tip: Front desk usually offers free cookies early evening.

Stayed in a room with two beds and it was massive, there was a table and seating area. The staff was friendly and helpful and the hotel was beautifully decorated and clean. There is a bar and restaurant on site and it is very close to a series of bars and restaurants. Would for sure stay here again.

The decorations in this hotel were so colorful and different. The colors all scream happiness! I thought it was a pretty good size room, it fit 2 double beds & a table and chairs. The bathroom was pretty small only a stall shower & the toilet was very low to the ground. The beds were pretty uncomfortable though, I woke up with a neck ache. The room has a Keurig which was awesome as well! It was in a good location too, a block away from a strip of bars & restaurants near Clark & Division streets. Parking is $45 for 24 hours (come & go), which is expensive, but it is downtown Chicago so you won't find it any cheaper some where else. Overall, I think the positives outweighed the negatives & I would stay at this hotel again.

First time to Chicago, this hotel was not right down town as we didn't want to be right down town. The hotel was in the midst of a residential area. The hotel it's self felt like a lake front vacation home - the colors are bright and airy. The staff was just awesome!!! If we even looked like we had a question - there was somebody there to help us. The guest services manager, Alma, was fantastic! She saved us a ton of time by helping us with directions and maps and even finding certain stores we wanted to go to and helped us navigate thru the public transportation they have available. Our room were beautiful and the bed was incredibly comfortable. I would highly recommend this hotel to anyone staying in Chicago. I will be back someday!!!
