Stayed here on a recent business trip. Location was very good (10 min walk to Willis Tower) but in an industrial area of town. The property was probably very nice back in the 1980's or earlier but it really doesn't appear to have had anything new added. I am a platinum IHG member and stay in their propertys over 90 days a year. Many of their hotels are receiving remodels but this is one that has not and certainly should be. I was upgraded to a one bedroom suite and while the room size was nice it was, simply put, old.
Check in: No problems other than a minor wait since only one person was at the desk. Thank goodness there was only one person in front of me.
Room: Old furnishings but no smell. The one thing I noticed was that the coffee maker was a 4 cup maker but the coffee provided was the single cup, plastic tray variety so it didn't work. Bathroom had mold in the bathtub grout but was clean other than that. Towels were thin. There was a lot of road noise coming through the windows and the AC units were noisier than most.
Location: Good to downtown but in an industrial area that actually made me a bit uncomfortable walking at night. I had to step over homeless people's sleeping goods when walking under the bridge.
