          Strategically located in between McCormick Place and Downtown, which makes it a good place to stay in if you are attending a show at McCormick Place.

        • Older travelers
          6.6

          quick check-in, reasonable rate, good location

          lobby smells like smoke because people smoke right outside; computers out of order; no wi fi in room as promised; had to request washcloths and internet access repeatedly; never able to use internet in room

        • Group of friends
          9.2

          Clean, very comfortable rooms and great location. Staff are efficient and tries their best to serve guests needs.

          The rate quoted by bookings.com is different from the rate when I arrived at the hotel. When I check out, I was again given another rate. As I was rushing to the airport, I did not kick up a fuss. The hotel and Bookings.com should honor the original rate quoted. I will think twice whether I will book future hotel rooms from Bookings.com

          It was closed to the Millenium park, to the magnificient mile. Staff people were hospitable. For 2 days, the internet was not avalaible

          10.0

          The staff was extremely helpful and very nice. The rooms were small, but clean and comfortable. The food at the attached restaurant was excellent. Would strongly recommend getting the parking package. It was easy to get to and close to local transportation. Quiet at night.

          Location was between downtown and the convention center which worked for me

          Staff were highly unfriendly.

          all converations from room next to ours was completely audible

          8.2

          I like the fact that my room included a really good breakfast.

          I hated the fact that I could here the people in the room right next door..it seemed as the walls were thin or something!

          Close location to South Shore Line RR stop.

        • Older travelers
          6.4

          Good breakfast, cleaness

          Unconfortable pillows and the air is too dry it gave me problem to breath in the night

        • Family with children
          8.2

          It was a good value and included parking and breakfast. My room was assigned incorrectly (1 king vs. 2 queen) and the desk attendant fixed it right away with no hassles. The valet parking was hassle free and it did not take a long time to retrieve our car.

          It was a little worn out (carpet, walls, etc). It could stand a little attention to detail and a freshening up of decor.

          i liked how close we were to where we wanted to go while being out there

          location.

          TV had to be repaired, No hot water one morning, Cost of parking, had to ask for a room directory,.All was repaired/taken care of in a timely manner except for cost of parking.

        • Family with children
          9.6

          The staff at this hotel was wonderful, courteous and very well informed about the city that surrounds them. The room was clean and comfortable. The location was absolutely ideal for bus pick-up as well as taking off on foot. The hotel rates are exceptional compared to the hotels that surround them. Will definitley return to this hotel when we plan our next city vacation.

          The restaurant in this hotel leaves much to be desired. It is worth the walk right around the corner to eat breakfast at "Potbelly", they serve delicious breakfast sandwiches for under $5.00. The swimming pool was a great way to relax at the end of the day, although, I was disappointed that the clean towel bin was always empty, and the pool needed some general cleaning. We had to use our room towels for the pool and then had a hard time getting additional towels for bathing.

          Staff was very loud in the hallway while we were trying to nap during the day.
