Right in the mix!

This is a boutique style hotel. However, my room was clean, the bed was comfortable, and the staff was very friendly.

Nice location

The hotel is very clean and modern. The rooms are very small, but overall it's a great hotel for the price.

False Advertising-More like a Motel than Hotel

Pros: Nothing
Cons: everything
Location: Good
This Hotel is the worse Hotel I have stayed in considering it was $179/night. There was no value for my money. It was to blunt the room were like Military or boarding school colors. Just Basics were all below par. I was booked for four nights but I checked out 3 days earlier. Though I lost $200 some dollars as cancellation fee, I could not stand it for another second. I moved to a different Hotel that has color in the rooms and had bedroom and living room are separate, fridge and microwave for only $50 extra and the stuff there were amazing!

Nice enough, but will try something else next time

Pros: Decor was nice, modern, appeared new
Cons: Bathroom water rust needs to be cleaned or replaced. Water system needs to be looked at, metallic smell and taste (like mold almost). Hotel staff.
Location: everything, it's in the loop.
I am not hard to please, nor do I have a ridiculous list of needs. Saying that to help level set this review. I stayed 2 nights, 3 days. The room shower had water rust down the metal fixtures in the shower. Outside of that it looked clean, just thought that it was strange since the bathroom appeared to be updated. The water did have a metal smell and taste to it. I didn't drink it, but it was noticeable the first night I brushed my teeth. I used bottled water after that. You may think that's just the way Chicago water smells, but I've been to Chicago plenty of times and it's not Chicago...it's the hotel. The front desk was unprofessional or overwhelmed or stressed out (not sure which) the first 2 nights. You could tell just hearing them when waiting for your elevator. I was thankful I didn't really need to talk to them. However, the very last day of check out the guy at the desk was amazingly pleasant. So, just know you may get one or the other apparently. I didn't have issues to test the waters. I just check in and check out and hardly speak to hotel staff b/c I know they are busy and I don't really require much other than a clean room and towels. Parking: If you were unfortunate enough to bring a car to Chicago, then either park your car farther away at a cheaper lot and take the train while you are there. Otherwise, they do offer $60 valet which includes in and out. I ended up parking it myself at the same lot they use right around the corner for $46/night.

Not what I expected...

Arrived at the hotel nestled in the eclectic part of downtown Chicago. The building is gorgeous as well as the lobby. Modern chic. Shortly after checking in with the friendly youthful staff, I made my way to my room. Upon approaching the floor a strong essence of the earth hit me which was carried into my very tiny/cramped room. The room does not reflect the ambience of the lobby nor the outside. I was promptly given a slightly larger room (not much but will do). Needless to say the room didn't match the price. If cheaper I wouldn't have much to complain about.
