In the room it promised satellite tv and there was none until I complained and they moved us to another room.

My husband and I stayed here for a weekend to celebrate his birthday. We wanted to be close to the el, in a decent area, and NOT PAY A LOT. (Hotels near downtown run $200/night and up.) This hotel was all of these. Was it small? Yep. Other than that, no complaints. There were no bugs, no stains on the...

Rooms were in poor condition. Water stains everywhere, very musty and damp feeling. Linens in poor condition. Only provided two towels for four of us and wanted to charge $5 for each additional towel. Management was rude. Decent location, for the price.

Old, no elevator, small room with beat up furniture, but fairly clean. Front desk manager not very friendly or helpful. Ceiling had an unpatched hole where a light fixture used to be. One battered nightstand, no lamp; student-style desk was the only storage. Small round ottoman served as a chair. TV was a small flat screen on the desktop. Shower...

Its a budget hotel that tries hard to excel. We got an upgrade for free and the room fitted our standards. The hotel management were quite helpful and the hotel is close to the metro. Take the ferry from two streets away into town for an added bonus. It was a budget hotel that suited us!

Staying in Chinatown

Neighbourhood Profile
Chinatown may be one of Chicago’s smallest neighborhoods geographically, but it's big on character, colors, sights, sounds, and flavors. In this South Side neighborhood, you’ll find authentic Chinese restaurants dotting the length of Wentworth Avenue. After a meal of dim sum, noodles, duck or other tantalizing food specialties, satiate your visual appetite with dozens of public art sculptures sprinkled throughout the neighborhood ranging from animal structures to pagodas, a tile mosaic, Chinatown Gate, and a Buddhist Temple.
