Exceptional 10.0
Roomy, tidy, and​ clean
I'm​ Jaruwam from​ Bangkok, Thailand.​ HI​ Chicago​ is​ definitely my​ favorite.​ It's​ very​ comfy as​ all rooms are​ so spacious: bedrooms, bath​rooms, dining​ room, and​common areas.​ Apparently, the​ management and​ its staff​ work​ hard around the​ clock to​ make​ sure that​ the facility​ is​ clean and​ tidy. Cleaning​ is​ done not​ only during​ the daytime.​ I​ saw a​ housekeeping staff​ cleaning the​bathrooms when​ I​ woke up​ to​ use the​ hallway restroom at​ 3​ am. one night.​ The​ complimentary breakfast​ has​ a​ variety of​ good​ choices.​ Another​ plus is​ the free​ activities, like​ Downtown​ Walking​ Tour, and​ etc.​ I​ stayed at​ HI Chicago​ for​ 2​ weeks when​ I visited Chicago​ in Nov.​2019.​ I​ wish I​ could move​ in​ there and​ make it​ my​ home 😊

Great Times In the Windy City!
HI Chicago was truly an enjoyable experience! The staff were very courteous and helpful, giving valuable information about the local culture to this first-time Chicago visitor...

Very good 8.0
Good.
A good stay apart from a misunderstanding which resultedn in books being removed and not returned. This was not deliberate but still irritating. Not having fresh fruit for braekfast for a couple of days was disppointing but at least the canned stuff was not full of sugar. Great staff. Good location
