              it's quite near to the Michigan lake, museums and in a very good place to go elsewhere. very convenient. the hotel is a little old but the room was nice. wireless is free

              my room was on the side of street, so it was a little noisy when the train passed. besides, i did not see any exhaust fan in the bathroom. luckily it was not humid.

              When checking in the staff was very friendly and welcoming. Upon entering the room the first notice was it was clean and appeared to be comfortable - this happened to be so as we went to bed for the night. The location of the hotel was excellent. Parking close and not expensive, within walking distance to theaters and restaurants. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and will return when next in Chicago. Our second home.

              Only aspect that we didn't like about the hotel was the long wait for the elevators, an older hotel problem perhaps but the elevators could be looked into.

              It is pretty cheap and very near to my conference site.

              My room is 235. At 4: 00AM every day, the kitchen begins to work and I cannot sleep well any longer. Hopefully next time, I will be assigned a quieter room.

              Simplicity and cleanliness. The location is perfect.

              The price noted on the internet (Booked.net) did not include taxes. That made a rather high price in the end...

              The room was clean and extraordinarily large, which was cool.

              The elevators were kinda slow if you did not get the elevator with a human operator.

              I loved the location it was perfect. Hotel room was clean and you could tell the bathroom had been updated. It was super cheap and convenient. Perfect for a weekend it was such a surprise to see such a great room when we weren't expecting it to be that great. I'd stay there again in a heartbeat.

              Hotel needs updating in general - decorations, painting, ect. The side of the hotel we stayed on you could hear the el stops but we were so tired every night or never in our room enough that we could sleep right through it and not be bothered by it.

              The front desk staff was nice. The price was right.

              The Housekeeping was weak. The bathroom vent fan was coated with dust. Housekeeping did not replenish the (super small) hand soaps and removed the shampoo on the 2nd day. The linens were stale.

              We were on 11th floor and in a room oppoesd to the rail, so we didn't hear anything.

              Rooms left uncleaned for 3 days. Not so good smell in corridors and room. Very, very slow elevators!
