Only complaints.....elevators are extremely slow, no coffee in the rooms and on the website it indicates parking is $50 per night which it is actually $58 per night. Other than that, it was great. Staff is outstanding and very friendly. Short walk to Navy Pier!

This is a charming little property -- rooms are nice, inviting lobby area, nice bar/restaurant. Soaps and shampoos are extra nice, and the service is top notch. My only complaint is that there is no coffee machine in the room, so you have to order from room service.
