Editorial review:

This unique hotel is located in a former hat factory dating back to 1912. The rooms are small and attractive, done in bright colors and off the wall patterns. Some of them have excellent views of the river. There's free wine and appetizers at night, but the other food choices are nothing special.

Verified Reviews:

  • Wine hour is an added bonus - Food is always very good - Desk and bell staffs were attentive

        • Family with children

          The hotel staff was so welcoming and friendly to my three year old daughter. She loved the fish in her room and had more fun in the window seat in our room than she did at the aquarium! I would definately recommend this to child with a big imagination.

          Everything! Very friendly, comfortable, clean, and convenient. They are environmentally active and cater to pets. Meals were great (both at the attached restaurant and at the restaurant across the street which they suggested).

        • Family with children

          The staff was extremely friendly and remembered our names throughtout our stay. We were given "extras" like a free movie (for no reason). Our two children (8 and 10) were so impressed, they hand wrote a letter to the "Hotel Staff" that this was the best hotel they ever stayed at.

        • Family with children

          The convenience of this hotel to the city and the Loop was critical as we would be walking for much of my stay. They were helpful for a later check out and the beds were very comfortable.

          That I had to go down a floor to get to the ice machine from the 11th floor I was staying on.

          The staff was friendly and helpful. The decor was interesting and well considered. Location weas in the heart of Chicago. We liked the coffee/newspaper in the am and wine in the pm tradition. It was complimentary but it was just a nice touch too. I have never seen a lobby actually used by guests before.
