My boyfriend planned a trip to the Chicago area during my spring break and I was a bit apprehensive when he said he wanted to make all the plans himself-- especially since he doesn't have much travel experience. When we arrived at the hotel, we were both pleasantly surprised at how nice our room was. We arrived at the employees were very friendly and helpful, getting us all settled in our room. We had some issues with getting our key to work, but an employee promptly came up to give us a new key. The front desk even called about a half hour later to make sure everything was working well for us.
I don't really have anything bad to say about the place, even though we didn't spend a whole lot of time at the hotel. I really suggest trying Johnnie's Grill, a very, very small dinner located right next door to the hotel for breakfast or lunch. Everything in the room is new and remodeled-- flat screen TV, high speed wifi, and (my favorite part) a wonderful shower. The rates were super awesome and very affordable. This hotel is a little gem in a small, dingy suburb.
If you're planning on staying here to visit downtown Chicago, I suggest having or renting a car. The bus system is a little weird around this area, and it takes a long combination of trains/metro to get downtown. We tried taking the buses, got frustrated, gave-up, and just ended up taking our car.
