Great location
The location of the hotel is great, and the family room we had with kitchenette was a very good size. There were a couple of nice touches that added value. Free coffees were available from the machine in the lounge, and on weekdays, also some snacks like peanuts, M & M's, fruit and some canned soft drinks. Monday - Thursday you can get a free glass of wine at wine o'clock at 5pm. The staff were nice and efficient. I would stay there again.

Take deposit even if paid full balance
The hotel was well situated in the hub of the city. Traffic fairly loud even though in 3rd floor and the Queens bed are not queen size. Lovely service and changed our room after the first night due to noise from lift shaft. No notice of taking 50 dollars a night deposit. Left us short for holiday and missed a couple of excursions due to funds being held up as a deposit even though we had paid full balance and no mini bar in room. Still waiting for the deposit back on our card.

What a fantastic location, couldn’t recommend it enough. Less than 10 minute walk to two ‘L’ stations so great transportation links, lots of restaurants and bars in very close vicinity, right on the riverside with easy access boat tours (a must) and the Chicago Riverwalk that follows the south bank from Wolf point to the Marina and beyond. A great walk. The hotel itself is clean and basic, rooms are fairly small but functional with an excellent shower. Bottled water available on each floor (pour your own) as well as complimentary tea/coffee on floor 2. There was fresh fruit and cereal bars available on the Monday we left, didn’t spot this any other day but we were out before 0700 each day. If, like us, you are looking for a base to explore Chicago then this hotel represents good value in a prime location. If you will be spending lots of time in your room, maybe try elsewhere but expect to pay more

This hotel is situated right in the heart of wonderful Downtown Chicago opposite the Trump Building and by the river with many good bars, restaurants and a very Good Blues Club. It’s a boutique hotel with complimentary wine and cheese at 5pm Monday to Thursday - coffee and fruit available also anytime. Would certains visit again.
