I had a one-night layover in Chicago following a long-haul flight and mainly needed to sleep. Based on TripAdvisor reviews, upon check in I requested a room "high up" to avoid traffic noise. They gave me a great little room in a corner far from the elevators. I could still hear the sirens below but not enough to keep me awake. They also gave me a code for free wifi in the room even though the sign said it was only available for free in the lobby.
The bed was awesome. Great sheets and pillows. (Then again, I was jet lagged.) The room had a quirky shape, which gave it character compared to most modern hotels with a bunch of square rooms lined up along straight, narrow hallways.
The location right off Michigan Ave makes it convenient to restaurants, shopping and public transport. I took the blue line and red line from the airport and walked a few blocks to the hotel. It was a much longer train ride from the airport than I expected, but you can't beat the price! (Not sure I would do that with luggage again, though.)
My one complaint about the hotel was that it did not have in-room coffee. Free coffee was available in the lobby instead. I would have preferred to relax in my room for a while with coffee, but instead I just got dressed and headed out for a sit-down breakfast.
The staff accidentally booked my airport shuttle for the wrong day but they quickly got it fixed and I made it to the airport just fine. (Heads up - the airport shuttle they book only takes cash! Be prepared!)
The staff was consistently courteous and helpful. I would stay there again.
