    Super breakfast and rooms with an impressive view. Pleasantly decorated room and power sockets and buzzer inside. Location is unbeatable, just a short walk away from a fancy high-rise mall.

    We liked the hotel and its plentiful breakfast.

    All in all it was good value for cost, considering prices in Chicago. Gentle staff, helpful service, themed and budget rooms. Our room was fairly large and fairly clean. The outdoor bar in the hotel had plenty of complementary juices and beers throughout the day. Unbelievable beachfront location for what we needed.

    Nice budget place, I liked reasonably good personnel.

    A comfortable stay. Fairly quiet room, tidy hotel, reasonable value. Plenty of supplies in the room : microwave, 32-inch flat-screen TVs with HBO and TV. The venue offered a full English breakfast, it was included.

    Many things to like: delicious food, standard staff, comfy bed. And it also had extraordinary view. Convenient location for visiting restaurants and bars. A few times I ate at Giordano's, located a 10-15 minute walk from the hotel.

    Good to have fireplace in the lobby. The convenience of getting to michigan avenue bridge and being near to crown fountain. Unbeatable location, 10 minutes walk from grand tube station. Chicago Loop neighbourhood deserves to be explored❤
