    The hotel itself is nice but we weren’t made aware that there would be a party on the third floor until 2am at the time of booking. The entire bed was vibrating due to the music. We couldn’t sleep. We called the front desk and all they said was that the noise would go on for another 55 minutes.

    Good location! Friendly staff. Last night there was a huge party and the noise and cigarette smoke was overwhelming even inside my room on the 4th floor at midnight.

    We were given a suite on the 11th floor, and it was fantastic! It’s a grand old hotel on the Loop, and we really couldn’t have asked for anything better! Devil Dawgs is a 10 minute walk from there and excellent for a midnight meal!

    Perfect location. Needs a few worn parts fixed, but clean and comfortable with a touch of history.

    On their google star rating it says a 4 star. It certainly isnt a 4 star hotel. I was only here for 2 nights so it was fine but they need to improve in lots of areas. Carpets are so old, I wasnt comfortable walking around without socks. They say they rehabed the rooms but just the furniture was new. Rust stuck on our tub. Fine for a night or 2 but if your staying longer spend the extra bucks to go to a new hotel.
