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.

  • Excellent location for sightseeing and easy walking to Michigan Avenue and the theatre district. Great place to stay, very comfortable, nice different decoration and just south of the river. The Magnificent Mile is in walking distance, the staff coudn't have been more helpful from the cleaner to head concierge and the window embrasure lounge is the best.

    My room have very little natural light.

  • Very friendly, good location and cab rides we were tired was affordable. Design and furnishings were very cool, the staff were extremely friendly. The bed was not comfortable, meals were great and rich the concierge helped us navigate our way through Chicago.

    No worth the price and expansive window seats. Rude employee #3, care to be more specific.

  • The location is great, a few blocks from the Magnificent Mile and right on the river, the beds are super comfy and all of the furnishings are of the best quality. The staff is friendly, helpful and rooms are well appointed for the business traveler. Rates are very reasonable and include drink coupons, wine hour could boast a better wine selections.

    The view was poor, restaurant was closed for renovations.
