We visited Chicago to see Hamilton. The hotel is in a great location, within walking distance to restaurants and attractions, very close to the Private Bank Theater where Hamilton is playing. We arrived slightly early and worried about getting into our room, but the staff were able to accommodate us. All the staff we encountered were extremely friendly. The self-park was included in our stay and very convenient. We had a king bed room which was very nice and clean. Overall very pleased!
Very small rooms and poor room service.
The proximity to Grant Park is great! Responsiveness to room requests were slow to non existent. I had to make three requests to have extra pillows delivered to my room (one request in person to the front desk staff, one to housekeeping, and one using the mobile app). I thought that was a bit excessive to get two extra pillows that I was told would be delivered the first time I walked down to the lobby and asked in person.
The location is good: close to subway, next to park, easy to get food to eat. I thought this is a 4-star hotel. When I saw the entrance of this hotel, it looks like 4-star. But when I got into the room, I thought I was in a 2-star Inn. The coffee maker is dirty, full of dust. The computer is not working and not able to off screen. The decoration of the room doesn't look like 4-star. Also, when the guest at next room used the bathroom, the loud "boom" sound would shock you. The WiFi is only free at lobby. The speed is really slow. When I refused to pay $30 for upgrade room with WiFi, the staff looked not happy. My teen girl was very disappointed for her trip to Chicago. She always wants to stay in hotel but this time she didn't want to stay longer.
The hotel is beautiful and in a great location. The mattress was very uncomfortable.
close to Soldier Field No hot water - not even warm enough to take a shower. Slow and disengaged staff. Promised city or lake view ended up being a view of an AC unit and the parking lot for the hotel.
Clean comfortable room, nice staff. Great location While the bar/lounge was nice, the lack of Gym and pool were something I missed.
I liked that it was close to everything we wanted! The wifi was slow! They had no ice machines in the hallways so we had to call every time for the front desk to being some to us. When entering the hotel it had a clean but smelly odor it was weird! We requwsted with a nice view but we got the back of another buildings view! The shower had some mold!
Staff promptly covered our mistake of a missing room with a walk-in and helped the family stay together during the vacations!
Rooms are pretty clean and comfort Staff was really bad, they treat you in a bad way, they didnt provide any help, they charge you for everything. I asked for a double bed room and they charged me extra 20$ even I requested the room weeks ago, Internet isnt free and is really expensive.
We walked everywhere. This is great to see the city. I needed a plug for my CPap to sleep at night and there were none by the beds. I called for an extension cord but never got it. Had move things around to sleep.
Being close to the parks. The loop is very walkable. They changed our reservation for a suite with two beds and a pull out couch to 1 king bed. Could not find the 3rd party email to show them this was wrong, had to pay an "upgrade fee" to get what we had already paid for. The Willis tower has over 105 elevator cars, this place had 3 and one of those was not working. 2 elevators that served 15 floors. Housekeepers very kind, but you never see them until late in the afternoon/evening. Had to call down for towels every day of our stay. Had an awesome view: of the construction right outside of our window. Good news, the crews don't work weekends. Bad news: they work late in the day. Interior is dated. Beds are hard.
Hotel was very well kept; rooms were spacious; location was great for business Hard pillows, hard mattress, street and hallway noise
Walk in shower was nice, bathroom very spacious. Bed was comfortable. Nice location to restaurants and the river. Staff very helpful, especially Dan. Dan was awesome and helped us book another night so we could be in the city longer. Good price too. A few shower tiles were dark, possible mold. It only had one door so water splashed everywhere. A palm-sized piece of the wall was missing and FYI if you don't want to hear street noise such as sirens and honking ask for a room away from the street, you won't get the best view but you'll be able to sleep without interruption.
The staff was great, everybody from the manager to housekeeping were so friendly, the hotel is older but they are updating and its coming along nicely, we've stayed in quite a few hotels and I can tell you these beds were amazing, so comfy. the hotel is within walking distance of EVERYTHING, Everything was so amazing we didnt want to leave Theres a restaurant on site which is great but no free breakfast that frequent Best Westerners are used to, no pool at this location but then again theres always Lake Michigan
Fine enough Under construction
The room was a good size-a bit plain, but comfortable. The entry/exit to Grant Park for the Chicago Marathon was directly across the street. You couldn't put this building in a better place. Great location.
Location Everything but location
Very accommodating and nice place. Excellent value! Nothing!
the staff were very cooperative and freindely. economical hotel in an excellent location the smell of the room
