    No continental breakfast.

    The street was very noisy all night abd we did not sleep the whole night.

  • Group of friends

    Great location and free parking. The maids were slightly noisy in the AM but overall it was a good experience. Nice accomodations for the rate. Pool and outside deck was enjoyable.

    Restaurant was OK but nothing fabulous.

  • Older travelers
    8.8

    We really enjoyed the pool and deck for receiving guests and enjoying ourselves. The front desk manager was extremely helpful and the parking attendants were very curteous. The location was great for Chicago beach and site seeing.

    The slow elevators

    Great value in an area with many places to dine and enjoy nightlife. Pleasant helpful staff. Easy access to shopping areas. Overall .....an enjoyable stay.

  • Single

    Location - excellent for a short walk to Michigan Avenue and centre of town. Really helpful and friendly reception staff.

    Very limited breakfast facilities. Having to travel across the courtyard from reception to my room and accessing the separate building.

  • Couple
    8.2

    The hotel is in the perfect location for shopping, attractions, the city restaurants and jazz or blues clubs, or anything else you like. The rooms are large and clean, and the staff is friendly. Parking is free, which is great, and room service can be served on their terrace, by the pool, or in the room--bonus!

    The elevator and hallways need a musty smell odor control, as I think it's just probably age of the building and not a lack of cleanliness. But, an air freshener in each hallway and the elevator would help, as the rooms are very clean and neat, sanitized well. Also, a small frig in each room would help immensely!

    Heat lamp in the bathroom, decent selection of TV including free HBO, close to the Merchandise Mart.

    Elevator was broken, had to carry my huge, heavy bags down a flight of stairs.

    Location,location,location

    Going to the pool and having to take different elevators and having to go in/out of a different part of the hotel was a bit confusing..not clearly marked that you have to do that

  • Family with children

    Free parking.

    It would have been nice to have breakfast available, but we did find an excellent breakfast place right around the corner.

    Decent location, clean beds

    There was an overwhelming air freshener smell everywhere. Also the walls in my room were dirty
