  • The location is awesome, all good points for a 3 nights stay in Chicago and explore the city.

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

  • Location is pretty good and altogether raggedy place except for the two pleasant day clerks. The front desk staff is nice.

    Dirty and smelly hotel, room was noisy. Sheets were a bit questionable.

  • A great location and staff, value were good, front desk was helpful. The shower water was warm and towels were clean and fluffy. The restaurant for breakfast was also convenient.

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

  • Good value for the location and great stay. Most importantly the price and friendly service. My room was very comfortable too and towels were clean.

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

  • Great value and location, very Good Hotel, the price is reasonable and has free parking. Staff is friendly, the rooms are clean.

    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.
