              The comfy chair in the room had a big hole in it.

            • Group of friends
              4.6

              the location near Mich Ave and the river areas was excellent.

              small rooms, no free breakfast, uncomfortable beds, not enough elevators, automatic safe charge on bill when we don't use the safe, no hot tub/ pool, tiny busy waiting area, no room to spread out in the room/ no desk/ table ect

            • Group of friends
              5.4

              location was great

              the room was not clean when I moved in, but my complaint wasn't taken seriously and nothing was done about that.

            • Group of friends
              4.6

              Room door was broken/wouldn't close we had to wait til 3 am to switch rooms, they didn't provide enough body towels, didn't get hand towels/wash cloths, room wasn't always cleaned when we returned at the end of the day, the commode in one of or rooms was broken for 3 days, sewage leak in lobby.

            • Single
              7.8

              Location in expensive area makes the price/value very high. The room is spare, but thoughtfully designed so that it does the basics. Clean room, comfortable bed, decent tv with some cable channels, wi-fi is free but not very fast, bathroom small but clean, etc. It was about $300 less costly than the conference hotel I was spending my days in.

              I didn't need to use the heating or air conditioning system, but I'm not sure it was working or how I would have made it work.

            • Family with children
              5.4

              Staff were friendly and the location was pretty nice.

              The room wass absolutely disgusting. Hair was everywhere throughout it, even on the beds. The bathrooom tub had pubic hair and phlem and it looked like puke in the tub. The sink was leaking water underneath. It was clear the floors and bathroom walls were not wiped down. The room felt very dirty. It was a great disappointment. The next room we were moved into was still somewhat dirty but didn't have the things in the tub.

            • Family with children
              7.0

              It's location was close to the shopping district and Navy Pier. We walked or took the bus everywhere. It had a nice flat screen tv.

              The bathroom is small but fuctional. Not very carefully cleaned. There was only one light blanket with the very thin spread on the beds.

            • Couple
              7.0

              close to all hot spots to see in downtown chicago

              rooms are a bit small and warm. airconditioning makes lots of noise.

            • Older travelers
              8.2

              I read other reviews and decided to make my own mind up. This is really an excellent hotel in a great location. Staff are friendly and welcoming and the hotel and room was clean and tidy. To be honest I don't understand some of the criticisms; drunks in the street? It's a city centre hotel!! Hardly their fault. Small rooms? Who cares? This is a great value hotel and I recommend it for anyone who visits Chicago and wants to stay downtown.

            • Single
              7.8

              The staff was very nice, rooms clean, but this is a basic no frills place, but fine for sleeping and changing when enjoying the easy access to downtown Chicago.

            • Family with children
              4.2

              The location

              The plumbing is awful too old I stayed 3 days and had all kinds of problems

            • Single
              9.6

              close to a city center (shopping avenue, ...), affordable (not very expensive)

              didn't have hot water for showering

            • Couple
              7.0

              Good Quality for the price. Just out of all the commotion of the main loop, yet close to shopping like Michigan Ave. Many excellent restaurants within walking distance.

            • Family with children
              5.8

              The lady at the front desk when we checked in was extremely friendly and location.

              The rooms were filthy! We had blood stained blankets, cob webs hanging from the ceiling, the bathroom was gross and carpet was stained. Called for house keeping which never showed up, they offered us a different room which was dirty as well and a room that was smokers room. They also overcharged our credit card. I would not stay at this hotel again!!!

              Useful location, valet parking cheaper than available in the city
