TripAdvisor Ratings

Great Value Near the Magnificent Mile
July 20, 2019

What a value, a block off of Michigan Avenue! The room was clean & comfortable (2 king beds) just a bit narrow, but fine for the four of us! The staff was super friendly and always willing to help. Walking distance to Michigan Avenue and public transportation, we were told parking was available for a nightly fee, but we opted for the transit system. We were there during a blizzard and the staff did their best to keep the front sidewalk cleaned and the lobby dry and warm.

Awful hotel
July 20, 2019

The manager lied over email about crib and when we requested a crib he said there are no cribs available and only pack and play available. The pack and play that was send was also broken. When I requested for another. I never got. They don't care actually.Hotel manager was really didn't care when I complained about telling me over email that they provide cri and in reality they don't have any. The room are too small. Don't get deceived by doctored pics. There is no space to walk in room. Bathroom is too small. The manager may say room are ''cozy' but don't believe him. Rooms are awful. No bottled water. Lobby is small. Hallways are tiny. Elevator are time and you will spend lot of time waiting for elevator.

Great value near the Magnificent Mile

This property is nice and economical...and right off the Mag mile! Some have said the rooms are small, and they are, but they have everything you need to crash for a couple of days while doing Chicago. The hotel is very efficient with the use of space! We had a “deluxe” room with a fridge and microwave, so I don’t know if that made the room bigger or not. Two drawbacks: (1) the in-room coffee was only decaf (gasp) but there are plenty of coffee shops right around the corner. (2) the elevators are small and look like they could break down. Ours didn’t, but after our stay we read it had happened to someone. On a couple of occasions we opted for the stairs to our 16 floor room. (That burned off all the calories from our deep dish pizza, right? 😀) We found the decor nice. You do hear street traffic. I was afraid it might make sleeping difficult, but I can tell you that was not the case. Good hotel, good location, and good price for the area!!

Overnight stay in Chicago
July 17, 2019

Not a boutique hotel but a good, solid, no frills hotel. Overall, probably one of the best 2-3 star hotels I’ve stayed at. Appeared to be very well maintained. Everything clean, no funky odors. Staff very polite and helpful. Booked through Hotwire and room was exactly as promised. Perfect for overnight stay in a prime location for a rather reasonable price. The few, minor cons would not prevent me from staying here again. Cons: limited space, rather close quarters, thin walls limiting privacy a bit Pros: great location, affordable, very clean

First trip to chicago
July 16, 2019

This place is great. The staff was friendly and very knowledgeable. Within walking distance of most attractions. (Navy Pier/the Bean) the room was a little small, but we only slept there. Everything was clean and well kept. We will stay here again. I highly recommend this Hotel.
