      This aging updated queen of hotels in Chicago is an outstanding value, dynamite location on the park. I was pleased and will stay again.

      That it was a whole apartment with sitting room, kitchen, utility room, bathroom, bedroom, seperate toilet. And it overlooks downtown.

      Our Queen room was spacious, the staff was friendly, and the location was excellent.

      The sun deck being closed was a disappointment. The kitchenette could do with a screwdriver and baking pans.

      Excellent location near Lincoln Park zoo. Good value for the price I obtained. Clean room. Free continental breakfast and wireless internet were unexpected treats.

      The bathroom was quite cramped.

      I thought the location was wonderful, a lot of restaurants and shops in walking distance. I thought the price was steal for the hotel, and I found the staff wonderful.

      The suite was a one bedroom apartment, which was a great amount of space for the cost. Lots of towels in the bathroom.

      The bed was not very comfortable, but comfortable enough that we didn't have problems sleeping or aches.

      Decor was nice though dated.

      Air conditioning issues. Perks not up to standard for the price.

      Very nice staff on arrival and staff at breakfast was exceptionally helpful, location was very good, public transport convenient.

      2 x Trainee male staff on reception, they did not appear to know too much about the area or advice to new customers. Car parking quite expensive at hotel.

      The location is very nice if you don't want to stay at the downtown. The park in front of the hotel.

    • Couple

      The hotel itself is lovely and really well-maintained. The staff was friendly, although did not go out of their way to offer extra help. The location is really nice, although not as easily enjoyed when the weather is inhospitable...

      We had some noisy neighbors, but that was not the hotel's fault.

      Great location - just a short walk across the street to the Lincoln Park Zoo & Conservatory. Also, within walking distance to the Nature Museum, restaurants & walgreens. Very nice hotel & the rooms have a kitchenette & living room - great for families. CTA bus route very close - for adventures into the city. Taxi ride from the John Hancock bldg back to the hotel was only $9.00.

      The complimentary breakfast needs to have fresh fruit, yogurt & waffles! Only has pastries, cereal and bagels.

      Our room was larger than my condo -- we had an apartment with all the space we needed -- it was awesome!

    • Older travelers

      The location is fantastic - great lakeside view and walking - free zoo and beautiful conservatory to visit and lots of cool shops and restaurants all within very easy walking distance. City V. close cab ride, as well as access to out of town expressways; parking was convenient. Hotel lobby very nice and both restaurants top class, ideal for meeting friends. Our suite was very big and it would have been great to have stayed more than one night. The hotel staff and doormen were friendly, professional and helpful.

      The bed was a bit hard

      The property was elegant and tastefully decorated and most welcoming. The staff was cheerful, helpful and courteous. The room was comfortable, clean and quite pleasant. Although this hotel is located in the heart of Chicago, the room was quiet and I enjoyed two good nights' sleep. I would most definitely return to this hotel and recommend the property to friends, family and coworkers.

      The hotel exceeded my expectations.

      The location was 100ft from the 151 bus line, linking us to the Mag. Mile as well as downtown on one easy bus trip. But far enough from downtown that it was in a quiet neighborhood with plenty of unique restaurants down Clark St.

      The concierge desk staff. Too busy checking facebook to answer questions.
