One cannot decide by seeing the cover of Book.
Poor facilities , old building with even bathroom door lock is not working, we were given another room by staff, we went there but that room was not at all cleaned, their staffs doesn't know the basic thing to provide a cleaned room to a new customer, after informed the front desk they provided another room which was cleaned and again the same problem bathroom door was not locked, but this time we adjusted their, otherwise our time will get ruined. Really bad facilities, As a common Wifi is not at all got connected, we checked front desk they told username and password but we tried for more than 30 minutes no login page was arrived, inside room not even having a cooler or mini fridge and no Microwave oven...Outside reception and lightings are attractive but inside room is too old and not even having basic facilities..I will recommend Hyatt Centric and Marriott, really good as we stayed earlier...

Went here for Lollapalooza, they should clean more and regulate/monitor guests. A lot of younger guests blasting music and littering, smoking it was very unpleasant.
