          • The location was awesome, the Magnificent Mile and just about anything else was all at my fingertips, the rooms and bathrooms were standard hotel rooms for a big city. The staff were wonderful, the concierge desk was extremely helpful and very informative, on the brighter side, the bed was very comfortable , and the pillows were great. The continental breakfast was decent.

            Small window and bad Elevators.

            The hotel parking is expensive, the elevators are very small and slow.

            A wonderful old landmark on the Magnificent Mile, no convenient place to get forgotten amenities and internet access is chargable and slow. The elevators are extremely tiny, the breakfast is expensive.

          • The location is nice, hotel held our bags after check out we left for our flight and helped us get a cab to the airport, the building alone gets a big compliment from me. Cheap rates, i guess you get you pay for, in fact, this service should have been provided free and the concierge is helpful. The value for the room is poor and the gym is on the top floor and is well equiped.

            Staff were unfriendly and there was no sense of welcome, the bed was very old and very uncomfortable. Elevator were kinda of slow.

          • The location is spectacular and hotel doesn't give free wifi on rooms. Great service and right in the middle of the downtown action, the beds are comfy enough.

            Staff very impersonal and a little unhelpful, the selections on the TV were very limited.

          • Perfect location and nice older hotel. Great price and staff were friendly. The bed was very comfortable.

            Our room was extremely small.
