A refreshing change
What a refreshing stay! We usually go for downtown Chicago and even if your room has a decent price, the parking overnight has almost gotten to be the room price!!! We will definitely do this again!!!

Great hotel within walking distance to Wrigley Field. Warm cookies at 4 PM were a mixed addition. Only downside was breakfast. Not much to choose from.
