Decent

This hotel was decent. I needed to be in the downtown area and this hotel was a few blocks away from where I needed to be. They let us check in early, although they commented that it wasn't busy and if it was busy they wouldn't have let us. I was a little disappointed that there weren't ice machines on every floor, they seemed to be on every odd numbered floor, we were on 6. Other hotels I've been in, set out new shampoos and soaps for the next day. They didn't. The heat was a bit slow to go on. I keep kosher, so can't say much about the taste of breakfast, we just took the teas and some fruit. They also had make your own waffles station, oatmeal, eggs, bacon and muffins. The pool also seems to be in an odd place. It's set off the lobby and it faces the street. That being said I would stay here again.

The Federal Reserve Bank of Chicago has a cute little money museum inside and it's just a few minutes walk away from the hotel. Sears tower is also nearby.

Just right

Best deal for staying in downtown Chicago. Clean, quiet,and in a perfect location. Best price for anything in the Loop area. The breakfast was great, the hot tub was hot, and the staff were helpful.Everything seemed really new, such as the HD TV, the marble sinks in the bathroom, and the updated decor. There was no city noise to complain about, because our room faced the inner courtyard. Parking was convenient, but not necessarily cheap. I would have given it 5 stars had the parking been less expensive. Also, the parking garage overcharged us, and there was nobody there to dispute it with. We had 3 small children, and because of the location we were able to walk to the Sears Tower, Navy Pier, and the water taxis without any trouble. There were plenty of places to eat at a great price. We were thinking about staying farther out of the city to save money, but the convenience of being in the middle of everything, and the quality of the hotel made up for the price difference.

Short walk to Sears Tower. Great pizza place for families with children, about 2 blocks east of Sears tower on south side of street. Real Chicago pizza at a great price.

Great location

Superb location in downtown Chicago, just one block away from Washington/Wells CTA-Loop station, two from Willis (ex-Sears) tower and two from the river. The turn off's that my specific room window (2nd floor) was facing a very busy alley during weekday mornings (translation: a lot of noise early), and because of the same reason I had no view at all (except from an office window across the alley). Not many breakfast options (and you have to wake up relatively early to have it on time). Other than that, good choice for the price.

Dining tip: Long walk from hotel

Maybe you already know this, but Portillo's (100 West Ontario Avenue, if my memory doesn't fail) a good choice for getting many of the typical Chicago dishes: Italian beef, Maxwell Street Polish and Chicago style hot dog (must go if you're not under a strict diet; if you are, you can burn the calories at the hotel's fitness room).

Good time getaway

The rooms are nice and clean. The location is walking distance to stores and places to eat. It costs about $7 to $8 dollars to take a cab to Navy Pier. It is about 30 to 40 mins. from Ohara International Airport. The only cons experienced were the long elevator waits and the policy of no late checkouts (at least thats what we were told by staff).

Modern

Went down for the Puertorican fest, location was great. Never been in a hotel where the rooms look exactly like the pictures, very modern, clean, nice staff-not fake. Pools small i think only 20 ppl can go in at once..but I went at night and there were only 4 of us...it was very nice.

Money-saving tip: Not Applicable

Leave ur car in the parking garage, everything around is close, or take a taxi a few blocks- theres no parking in the city, might as well take advantage of the garage. Also while ur at the hotel u get in and out privliges.
