"Conveniently located and well maintained hotel"
4 of 5 stars Reviewed Jul 25, 2014
SATraveller25 | North Brunswick, New Jersey
I stayed in this hotel for one night. It was very conveniently located close to our offices and is surrounded by good restaurants. It is easy to walk where you need to be. The check in staff was really efficient, friendly and helpful. They also give a good run down of the amenities included. Breakfast and wifi was included in the rate. I was surprised how spacious the room was. The bed was decent and the room included ironing equipment, a Keurig coffee machine and lots of closet space for a longer stay. Note that my room did not have a safe, which is not ideal when you have a laptop, tablet etc. I felt that this hotel have me more value for my money than some of the more expensive ones. I will stay here again.

"Good Location"
5 of 5 stars Reviewed Jul 24, 2014
Cara C | Winnipeg, Canada
This hotel was clean, the staff was very pleasant and the location was great. House keeping did a great job keeping the room clean throughout our stay. The breakfast is very good with a large variety and lots of seating. It is well located close to bus stops and train stations and is within walking distance to many of Chicago's attractions (Willis Tower, Millennium Park etc.) Will defiantly stay here on our next visit to Chicago

"Good location for the loop small BEDS"
3 of 5 stars Reviewed Jul 22, 2014
commish2014 | Ohio City, Ohio
Clean Hotel with good staff and well updated rooms. Rooms were small but that is standard for the Loop. Rate was expensive for the location and room size. Breakfast typical American cereals, waffle, biscuts and gravy No Yogurt, very few fruits, they need to take a lesson form Europe since they have a lot of European staying there. PLEASE NOTE if you are a couple staying in the same room, these are small doubles, I am 6 ft and 190lbs, my wife 5.3 and 120lbs they bed was TIGHT FIT.

"Great location, average rooms"
3 of 5 stars Reviewed Jul 17, 2014
Sarah H | Kansas City, Missouri
The location was ideal for my recent business trip. It was close to nearby train stations and walking distance to the office I was visiting. We arrived late and were treated by friendly front desk staff, but found all area restaurants were closed and we ended up taking a cab to Greek Town for dinner. Not what we had hoped! Our room was spacious and beds comfortable. We were given a room on the second floor just around the corner from the breakfast area. The shades were not in working order and we woke up just before 6:00 to a bacon smell so strong it was difficult to go back to sleep. I would not recommend a stay on the second floor. At our request, we were moved to the 8th floor for our second night. Although identical, the second room was in great shape, the view was nice and it was very quiet. All in all, it was an average experience. I would look for something else in the area as I'm not sure it was a $250/night experience.
