Great location if you're looking to stay right downtown. The price was very reasonable compared to other hotels in the area. Rooms were clean and had modern decor. One elevator wasn't working and only inconvenienced us one time. They did give us extra little snacks as an apology. The restraunt in the lobby had good food also. This worked out...

If you're traveling to this hotel and not familiar with Chicago, be sure to get verbal directions prior. Google maps will take you to their service entrance which is very confusing to navigate. While the hotel room was fine, location good and hotel staff friendly, my husband and I did not have great service with the valet. I get it...

This hotel is in an amazing location. It's right next to the river and the magnificent mile. There are multiple places to eat and explore within a 5 minute walk. The rooms were small but very clean and comfortable. An added benefit to the hotel was its security. There is always someone downstairs 24/7 and a room key is needed...
