                  Good location

                  Bad sound proofing (windows) from road noise meant we had a disappointing stay. Be aware, noise from emergancy vehicles kept us awake during the night, I asked for a quieter room and was told that I already had one of the quietist rooms.!

                  Free parking and close enough to all destinations to walk.

                  Weird elevators. Needed to change to get to pool. Should have taken the stairs.

                  It's an ok Hotel on a great location. The staff tried very hard to help us with tickets and questions! We liked the breakfast in the restaurant next to the lobby. The kids had fun in the pool, and you have a nice view over the city from the sundeck. Nice parking space. 20 min walk from Navy pier. Hotel is in a nice neighborhood with lot's of nice restaurants.

                  The room was a bit smaller then we were used to get at a Best Western. The airco was older and noisy, without the airco the room was warm.

                  the bathroom was very small; the heater doesn't work very well and the water of the shower, didn't warmd enough

                  I could hear sounds from other rooms. Not recommended for the persons who prefer a silent room.

                  The rooms are outdated, not clean and very noisy. You can hear everything from the floor above you.

                  Front desk was most cooperative when we asked for a "quiet room". They kindly changed our room for us when the room safe was not working. We ended up in a suite.

                  A great family hotel. Couldn't hear any noises from other people staying above, below or next to us! Great pool!

                  I wish the rooms had a microwave and a refridgerator! We loved the size of the room! Lots of space to move around!

                  Free parking and good location. Easy to get to and depart from the city.

                  It's a bit no frills and somewhat outdated.

                  The bed was extremely comfortable and the staff was very helpful. We arrived to the hotel early was still able to park our car without any charge. We also bought VIP tickets to most Chicago attractions for half of the cost!

                  There wasn't anything that we did not like about the hotel.
