Friendly staff, comfortable room, great location!
Janina, us1 night trip
Very good 8.0
Good for business trip!
The hotel staff were very friendly as you may expect and despite the hotel itself being very quiet (apparently is a lot busier during the summer months), the stay was quite comfortable. My biggest gripe, and I’m nitpicking here was that there was no conditioner for the shower and the body soap was low quality. The bed sheets could’ve been a bit softer but ultimately the bed itself was spacious and comfortable. Since I was only there for business, the room had everything I needed including a workplace with good lighting. The in room dining was good (though nothing special, and when I came back to the room each night, the room was always clean. The hotel itself was an easy walk to the main downtown for work. Roughly 5-10 minutes depending on where you are going. I would gladly stay here again, especially for the great price I paid.

Exceptional 10.0
Dated but very cheap and clean
This was perfect for my daughter and I who wanted to hit the big tourist museums and needed a cheap clean place to stay so that we could spend our money on food and museum passes. The rooms are dated but had plenty of outlets and the WiFi was good. The only part that was a little hard for me was the noise from the road but we were on a low floor and it is right on Michigan. Very close to all the big museums. Lots of tasty eating places nearby including Gino's East. Very clean and the staff interactions were fine. I loved the lobby and downstairs rooms. I felt like I was living at the turn of the last century.

Great location, good hotel. North tower, city view looks out on to Willis Tower. Room was clean and comfy. Stayed in January, so the hotel wasn't very crowded. Great service.

We enjoyed the room which had a kind size bed. The TV was a little small but we did t watch it for too long. Great location and a good deal on price.
