State Street and Michigan Avenue are worth checking out if shopping is on the agenda, while those wishing to experience the area's natural beauty can explore Grant Park and Millennium Park. Check out an event or a game at Soldier Field, and consider making time for Navy Pier, a top attraction not to be missed. Our guests appreciate the hotel's location for the nightlife and sightseeing.

    3/5

    I liked the location in the downtown Chicago area. I didn't like the lack of TV programs available and the room was way too small for the price

    Stayed 13 nights in Sep 2019

    5/5 Excellent

    Fun and funky boutique hotel experience

    Cool boutique hotel for a younger crowd. Interior was 1/2 coffee shop 1/2 cocktail bar, with a well-appointed sitting room.

    3/5

    A polished turd

    The room was really pretty and modern but it was kind of a facade. The legs to the sink in the bathroom kept falling over. The shower leaked profusely, there was hair in the drain and mold around the caulking. Both plugs near the bed did not work and you had to hold the phone cord in while calling. And it apparently wa s the time of year when the do a mandatory switch to heat. Because the room is small it became unacceptably hot and we had to keep the windows open at all times. The staff was really nice and brought amenities when needed and explained the heat situation but it was just disappointing for the amount of money we paid to stay in this establishments

    Stayed 3 nights in Oct 2019

    4/5 Good
