Comic con
Reviewed 21 hours ago

Came in town for the ACE comic con, the room was clean and nice, had some trouble with the smart tv but they were very prompt in resolving it. Walking distance of the Magnificent Mile and Navy Pier. Food from restaurant was delicious.

Great stay
Reviewed 5 days ago

It was perfect, clean, a good size, great location and the people were very very helpful, friendly and nice! The two bathrooms were a great luxury we needed for the five people staying there! It was excellent!

Tiny rooms, slow elevator
Reviewed 6 days ago

The rooms are tiny, the decor is spartan, and the elevator service is frustratingly slow. We left after one night, never to return. Location is good, and price was low, but there are better options. Trip Advisor is asking for additional characters in the description, but the above accurately covers our poor experience at this property.

Central Location
Reviewed 1 week ago

This hotel is in the heart of Chicago with all the main attractions within walking distance of the hotel. Check in was quick and staff were helpful and friendly. The room was slightly small but the bed was very comfortable and the shower was big with strong power and hot water. On Floor 2 tea/coffee and soft drinks were readily available and wine was on offer from 5-6pm daily. Each floor has reusable water bottles and cool water which was needed in the hot weather. My highlight of the hotel was returning home with clean laundry following the free use of a washing and drying machine!

Great Location & Views
Reviewed 2 weeks ago

In March, Chicago was near freezing but staying here was hot. The location was amazing, the front desk staff were very personable, the onsite fitness room was great and the views were delightful during sunrise and sunset. If I were looking to splurge. I’d certainly stay here again.
