Excellent choice for visiting Chicago ”

The location of this hotel is ideal for a stay in Chicago. The city is easily accessible on foot from here, with plenty of local cafes and restaurants, although the cost and quality of the hotel food is excellent. In addition the hotel facilities are very good with a pool and rooftop seating. The staff are hugely attentive and helpful. We loved it!

Excellent location for North River area of downtown. Rooms and amenities are very good. Staff was very friendly and helpful. Trains and a good variety of restaurants (Lou Malnati's Pizza!) are within a couple of blocks. Will definitely be staying again.

Perfect accommodation in an ideal location ”

This was a well located hotel to get around the city whether by foot or train. The in-house breakfast was well varied. The desk staff were all very helpful and the two concierges we dealt with were always extremely well informed and went out of the way to provide advice, recommendations etc. The rooms were well looked after although as a Brit it would be nice to have the option of tea as well as coffee in the rooms.

It's...a hotel. That's about all that can be said.”

This hotel is clearly a bit tired, but it's sufficient if you just need a place to crash and don't mind being woken up in the middle of the night by a group of shrieking teenagers running up and down the halls for two hours. There is a pool on the top floor, which was nice. But the workout room is also on that floor and there was no ventilation, so when I tried to run I got dizzy and nauseous from the heat and the chlorine. So, if you're looking for a deal, it's fine. If you want to feel like you are at all enjoying a "nice" hotel, I'd recommend elsewhere. But it IS right across the street from a McDonald's and a Rainforest Cafe, so that's something.

Nice old hotel, excellent location, impolite staff”

The hotel looks rundown on the outside but it had nice interiors when you get in, especially the rooms. Rooms were spacious and well-kept. The hotel is near to everything. Just a few blocks away from Grand station (Red Line), near Hard Rock Cafe, Nordstrom and a couple of good restaurants like Portillos and Rainforest Cafe. It's a couple of blocks away from Lou Malnati's as well. My only beef with this hotel is that I was FORCED to pay a deposit (50usd a day + tax) and the hotel staff just swipe my card. No option for cash payment. Until now, they haven't refunded my deposit even though the front desk assured me. Emailed them a couple of times to no avail. So yeah, they SCREWED me over that deposit. Good bye 150USD. So f*ck you lady receptionist for not returning my money!
