Zoo Lights!

We checked in around 3:00 pm and everything was ready. It was just a short walk to the Christmas Market in Daley Square. After that, the staff was very helpful to get us a cab to the Lincoln Park Zoo. The kids loved the Noodles and Company in the lobby and the Starbucks across the street. They had a good included breakfast. The pool was small but we were the only ones there and they also had a hot tub. I couldn't believe how close it was to the Sears Tower, Metra Station and Union Station. It was a good value and fantastic location.

In-and-Out

A one night stay in Chicago while taking care of business in the US. The location was close to a bus station where I dropped a friend off, the staff was knowledgeable and friendly... and some decent bars were within walking distance.

Satisfactory Experience

Overall, we had a good experience at this hotel. Very clean room and comfortable bed. Good location to easy "L" train access. Only 2 blocks away from Willis Tower. $12 cab ride to Navy Pier and Magnificent Mile. The only thing is it can be slightly loud on certain floors because of the L train if you're not used to it. If possible, ask for a room that faces the front #street# view of the buliding, away from the train.

Last Minute Anniversay trip

This hotel was nice. The room was pretty with modern decor, and very spacious. The windows panoramic view added to the open feel. The down side is you can hear all the noises from the street, which made for a restless night sleep. While the room was clean, their new decor was already a bit beat up. The curtains were snagged and the lamps were scuffed and tattered looking. The location was a little more on the outskirts than I'm used to, the trollies don't travel to this part of town, but the stops are relatively close. But it's about a 15 minute walk to the Art Institute of Chicago and about 30-35 minute walk to the start of the magnificent mile. Overall it was a good stay, on par with the chain. Bring your own toiletries, they only provide 2 small bars of soap and a single use shampoo, no lotion or conditioner. And plan on eating breakfast out. They do provide breakfast at no cost, but is it utter chaos in the breakfast area, you cannot serve yourself with the hot food, and the eggs were inedible.

Great Value! Great Breakfast! (small pool)

We were greeted kindly by the front desk clerks, who were fairly efficient though a bit harried. They graciously accommodated our request to change from a smokey 'non-smoking' room to an upgraded one. Room and bed were comfortable, with a futon couch that was moderately comfortable for sleeping. Minor criticism - indoor pool was VERY small. OK for small children, but no lap swimming. Breakfast? A step above the typical waffle and pastry routine. They offered fresh fruit, yogurt (and pastries). Additionally, one morning there was also biscuits/gravy, as well as hot oatmeal in a crockpot. The next morning they served hot scrambled eggs, sausage and bacon. The best part? The ladies operating the breakfast room were as kind and accommodating as they could be. Their smiles and warm greetings were enough to bring us back!

Ok if you just need a place to sleep

The good: Easy check in and out, location right off the train, clean room, free wifi The bad: No in room safe, only toiletry provided is one bottle shampoo/conditioner and a bar of soap, not even a small bottle of lotion, no places to eat near by in the evening so expect a cab or a long walk. There are food choices but everything closes after the business lunch crowd is done for the day. The free breakfast was the typical cheap hotel food: waffle mix, cold cereal, nasty biscuits and gravy, bread and hot brown water calling it self coffee. Don't think I would stay again do to it's

Dining tip: Long walk from hotel

If you are familiar with The Loop you know everything closes after the business crowd goes home for the day. Expect to walk or can it north, south or east of hotel to find some dinner options.
