We purchased our room on the internet. We paid an extra $11 per day for breakfast for 2 of us. When we got there and went for breakfast the next morning we were told we were not entitled to breakfast with the type of room we ordered. It was a AAA priced room (but again, I paid an extra $11)...

The room was fine. We had a suite but it was definitely on the small side. The 'living room/kitchen' was very dark however the bedroom was bright. The bathroom was nice.

The place is good enough, and rather centric (right off North Ave) if you're visiting the NW Suburbs.

While visiting Chicago this week I stayed at this hotel due to its location - it is about a 35 minute drive (using the toll-free roads) from O' Hare airport.
