            That hotel was the dirtiest, run down, worn out room i have experienced and front office staff were not very helpful.

            One of the worst hotels and the rooms and building in general are old and cramped.

            The hotel itself is old, the tvs are very dated and do not have a sleep option, ice machine broken.

            Very old building and the front desk was unable to do anything to correct the problem. Tub was dirty and the sheet kept coming loose.

          • Good restaurant on site and only 6 blocks west of the Magnificent Mile. The place looks pretty sad and house keeping was very thoughtful. The desk staff were helpful and there were plenty of tourist information in the lobby, the front desk clerk during the day was awesome, luckily our king bed had clean sheets.

            The coffee shop next door does a mean breakfast too, very old hotel and pretty bad service. Shower pressure was poor, towels were thin and worn.
