This place was an experience. I would not subject my wife to staying here, but for a businessman on the cheap, it served me well. I found it via BetterBiddiing.com to confirm what I was getting into with Hotwire.com. I was concerned about airplane noise, but this was a non-issue. The air-conditioner drowned out any other ambient sounds, including the supposed gunshots and bullet holes in the hallways that other reviewers have noted.
It is a short walk to the metro-train line (buy the 7-day pass at the Dominick's grocery store down the street).
Also, there is free parking. It is much cheaper to park your car and take the train into the city.
If you're into Hooters, there is one right next door. (Not my cup of tea...)
The wireless Internet worked great in the lobby. Every night the place was crawling with guests entertaining themselves on tablets and laptops.
Instead of the Gideon bible, you get the Hinduism equivalent(!).
Be sure to bring sandals. They put some substance on the carpeting everywhere that makes it slippery and kind of gross. I think it must be disinfectant. Reminded me of India... My suitcase, which has wheels, still smelled of the stuff for weeks afterwards. At least it wasn't a disgusting smell...
Bring blinders to cover your eyes as well. the curtains served to block someone's view from outside, but not to keep the morning light out...
All in all, if you're open minded and up for adventure in the Windy City, you might consider staying here out of convenience to transport and need to conserve dinheiro. Just don't come expecting pleasure and accoutrements.
Oh yes, I did not try the breakfast they advertise. I think it is just bad coffee and some weird American instruments of HFCS substances.
