Front desk service it's good, location is second to none. Unfortunately the rooms need some work, specially the restroom. The rooms look the same as 1999 when I visit the first time this hotel. Restroom did not look good at all, uncomfortable and water taste weird. It's extremely noisy due to a nearby hospital (ambulances). The air-conditioning unite was also... More

The hotel is very old. We couldn't stay in the room they first assigned to us, we asked to move and we went to a higher floor, room much better when compared to the first one. To access Wifi we had to go to the lobby and enter a password. It was not a good experience.

Two things this hotel has going for it; location and friendly staff. It is well situated for the local attractions and restaurants (and shopping if you want it!) all within walking distance. The concierge staff are extremely helpful and know their stuff when it comes to good restaurant suggestions (Valare was a good one). However, our room and the communal... More

My husband and I really enjoyed our stay here. BUT we used a Groupon and would have never paid full price. The room and bathroom were nice but basic. The location is really what stands out about this hotel. It could not be more centrally located! Since our trip was so short we wanted to make the most of our... More

The hotel is located within walking distance to the Magnificent Mile. The rooms are dated, somewhat smaller, but clean. The staff was very accommodating. Parking was poor. I was forced to use an adjacent self parking structure which charged 46 dollars per 24 hours. Overall, a nice hotel if you are looking on the cheaper side with access to walkable... More

Booked this hotel on a bit of a budget and it was perfect. From the time we arrived until the time we checked out the staff was extremely polite and helpful. The hotels location is perfect.

We visited Chicago on November 2016. The location is good, near the main attractions and the loop. However the room was dirty and the bathroom unacceptable. It looked no one cleaned it before we arrived there. Dust and hairs on the desks. The receptionist was kind, that's why I gave 2 stars.

The room I stayed in was a bit small, but it's Chicago. You shouldn't be spending much time in the room anyway! Also, on the website, they specify that there are traditional rooms vs. modern rooms, which is going to give you a hint at what you're getting. I stayed in a traditional. The bathroom was small, but tolerable. I've... More

Neighbourhood Profile
Magnificent Mile
Over 400 stores pack the concrete along Michigan Avenue, the eight-block stretch known as Magnificent Mile. This area between Oak Avenue and the Chicago River is more a shopping paradise than a full-out neighborhood. For prime upscale shopping, this is the place to go. It’s busy, energetic, and packed with shoppers. You'll also find hundreds of restaurants and dozens of hotels, all on the mid- to high-end scale. Some of the city’s most iconic buildings like the Wrigley Building, John Hancock Center and other architectural marvels define the magnificence of this neighborhood.
