Disappointing

A generally poor experience. Chamber service before the 2nd night was not offered until 8:25pm although I had been out of the Hotel from 7:30am to 6:00pm. The room was uncomfortable, poor TV reception and no TV guide. Location of in-room services was illogical, e.g. Coffee Maker in one location but supplies of coffee etc was elsewhere. Elevator was slower than those in hospitals. Before arrival, I was offered a service which I later learned the Hotel has never offered.

Not too bad

My experience was ok. The hotel smelled bad when I walked in the front door. Good thing for them I'm not a picky person. The bed was comfortable and in general, I thought it was worth the price for my short business stay. The staff was courteous. There was no free breakfast in the morning, but I was close to places of dining or places where I could buy food at. There is a small cafe where I have bought breakfast or lunch at, but I didn't. The neighborhood was pretty safe. Hard to say anything about quietness because the subway was across the street ergo I heard the trains go by. They didn't really bother me. In general, I had a good time and it was worth it.

Alright...

I would only recommend this hotel if you just need a place to sleep and you are not going to spend any time here.. It was not the grossest hotel I have been in, however it could have definitely been a lot cleaner. I would also not bring a family here.

Very good deal for the money.

The location is super-convenient to the Loop, just a block from the Harrison station on the Red Line, and right on the #7 bus. The room was comfortable, but the shower didn't quite stop dripping and the water wasn't really hot enough. There were some random metal-clanging noises in the night that were probably from the elevator. And there was something about the bedding that made it not retain body heat very well. But aside from that: the room was clean, the staff was friendly and courteous, the location was amazing, and it was more than good enough for the price. Definitely recommended, but you might want to do something about the hot water issue.

The Thai restaurant that is technically not in the hotel but RIGHT next to it is quite good, and fairly priced.

Don't Expect Much

Was upgraded to a King room...unfortunately it was by the elevator (noisy), faced the train line (noisy), in window air conditioner struggled to barely cool room and multiple times my room key wouldn't work. Staff was friendly and did what they could.
