TripAdvisor Ratings

A fine hotel gets better and better
November 13, 2018

We have stayed at this hotel numerous times over the past 30 years. It has had four different names and keeps getting better and better each time it is remodeled. We like it for the location, good service, and cozy, comfortable rooms.

Very affordable
November 11, 2018

This place is in a premium location for less. It's very small but it has all the essentials and a great place to stay if you want to stay in the city. Breakfast restaurants are walking distance and so if the shopping areas.

Perfect place!
November 06, 2018

The staff was above & beyond friendly. Rooms were small but very clean. Perfect stay to be in the heart of chicago to explore! The bed was super comfortable. We actually extended our stay one day & opted to stay here. Affordable!

Fantastic Customer Service
November 05, 2018

I am planning a trip to Chicago to visit a relative in the hospital. I called the hotel and spoke to Ketora. I had questions about where to pull up to the hotel and the parking situation. Basically, I needed to understand the logistics of checking in with my dog. Ketora was so kind and patient. When she found out why I was visiting Chicago, she spoke wonderful words of hope and encouragement. I can't wait to meet her in person and tell her how much she helped ease the stress of travel and family trauma.

Early Anniversary Get-a-way
November 04, 2018

First off, let me say that we stayed in the standard King room. The hotel is newly renovated with laminate flooring (yay, no carpet) and modern furniture and bedding. The bathroom is very small and houses the toilet and shower across one another. The standard king room is small with no microwave, no fridge and no iron/ironing board. Also, there isn’t a sitting area or a desk. The BIG plus about the hotel is the price for its location. It is centrally located downtown within walking distance of everything... the Magnificent Mile, Millennium Park, the 360 Observatory Deck in the Hancock building and many other tourist sights. The staff was wonderful from the desk clerk to the housekeeping staff. ADVICE: If you are claustrophobic, this is not the hotel for you. The halls are small, the elevators are small and the rooms (at least the standard king) are small. However, the location is everything!
