Latrina and the other staff were absolutely a pleasure. Inviting and helpful staff. Rooms were great, clean and beautiful view of the river. Will definitely stay here again when I visit. Customer service is a big thing to me and the staff here showed it.

Our room (a 500 sq. ft. studio) overlooked the river. It also gave us a clear view east on Wisconsin all the way to Lake Michigan. The hotel is located in a former department store, which means high ceilings which adds to the spaciousness. Staff is friendly and helpful. Complimentary breakfast is standard. You can walk to theatres (Riverside, Starlight,...

Stayed for two nights as the first stop of a Lake Michigan circle driving trip. Location on Riverwalk is ideal; near historic third ward and nice restaurants. The staff is very friendly and helpful.

I liked this hotel since my arrival. Still during checkin they gave me a free update to a really big room (kitchen, tv room and 2 bedrooms), incredible. The staff was really kind during my whole stay. The fitness center is ok to exercise a bit during your stay. The parking lot is across the street. During summer it is...

I stayed there for 4 weeks on a business trip. The location is great, by the Riverwalk, close to the third ward. The room was huge with high ceiling and large windows.
