Money-saving tip: Not Applicable

Take the double-decker trolley tour and for sure buy a one-week transit pass good for all buses, trains, subways, etc.

Good value

No real complaints about our stay. Kind of a no frills hotel. There's no real lobby or bar to hang out in, but the rooms were comfortable and clean. The pool was nice and the location was fantastic. We also had a great view (partial view of the river included) from our room on the 19th floor. The staff was friendly and helpful.

Great location

We were able to check in early. Room did not have much of a view, but was quiet and the location of the hotel is great. Full breakfast in morning, including to-go containers. We grabbed items from the breakfast, and toasted bagels in our suite, and used the microwave to heat up the rest. On the downside, only one bedside table with lamp, not enough room on the other side of the bed. Also, sink is outside the bathroom so if one person is sleeping, another person has to be quiet while getting ready in morning/at night.

There is a Jewel/Osco grocery story two blocks west. Very convenient for stocking your fridge, and for buying transit passes.

Fantastic Location a very nice place

The L was only a block away which was great. We rode the L from the airport. We bought a three day pass to ride the L,saved a lot of money. Very clean place.Rooms were "Very" pleasant. It had a video game in the room,two TV's, grab rails in the shower/tub, carpet and beds very clean. Waiters were attentive.The complementary breakfast was wonderful. Had eggs,breakfast meat, cereals, bagels, fruit, etc. Maids cleaned your romm and didn't even know they were there. Every night before going to bed, we'd open the curtians, Wow what a light display. It was beauitful. Front desk was great checking in and all through the stay..

Sightseeing tip: Short walk from hotel

Be sure to take the Mercy boat tour. It's down by the river. You are able to get your tickets there. Boat rode you via waterway out into Lake Michigan through the locks, to the pier. Coming back, back though the locks, you now are going to boat though downtown looking at all the buildings. They looked enormous. The guide narrated all though the tour. Very nice, was about 90 mins. 15 min walk to the river.
