      Individual guest reviews

      • The kitchenette area is great and dinner buffet during the week well worth the stay really plush I would diffently choose again. Staff is nice and efficient, the rooms are big and beautifull, the "snack" consists of a full course, hot meal.

        Location couldn't be better and this a a comfortable hotel , not your pretentious type at all. The wifi internet is weak sometimes.

      • Loved the location and service, nice hotel, price is reasonable for downtown Chicago. Staff is friendly and helpful, the rooms are perfect for families, also the facilities are fantastic , including breakfast buffet, gym and pool. Light dinner is a big plus.

        A hot tub, the kitchen was old and moldy, sheets were not changed on 2 occasions. Only 2 elevators for 19 floors made for unbeArably long waits.

Reception staff were efficient, friendly, room was very clean, comfortable and the kitchen was great for having snacks. Fresh linens and towels were given everyday, restaurants was perfect, dinner were much appreciated.

      • I liked the location, buses and Magnificent Mile, the best museum for kids was the Museum of Industry and Science. This place was awesome and our rate was great. The staff were wonderful, the employees were all friendly and helpful, the beds were very very comfortable.

        Nice evening welcome meal on weekdays, old building and again, for the price , wasn't that big a deal anyway. The furniture is outdated the food is not that good.
