Exceptional - 5.0 out of 5

Brenda, Milton, visiting Arvey Field Grant Park Sun, 22 September 2013

I loved the workout facility, beautiful roof top pool and patio. It was great for our stay and good walking distance to stores and the park we ran our half marathon in.

Liked: Employees were very helpful and kind, especially Erica who was there at our check in and check out.
Disliked: Parking seemed high - paid $50.00. However the other amenities balanced it out.

Very Good - 4.0 out of 5

Rhonda B, Paulding Mon, 24 October 2011

Have to say it was great except for the people that wander into the lobby and sat right down with us begging for money. That happened a couple times at night when no one was on duty in the lobby.

Liked: LOVE Ray and his shuttle - took us everywhere for FREE and told us so much history about the Town!
Disliked: At night no one is on duty in the lobby and homeless people came in and sat down with us and asked for money.

Liked: Location
Disliked: Bathroom had pipes sticking out of wall where it look like the sink used to be and water was leaking out of it. Sink was very small and not much counter around it.

Liked: Location is great for walking to Shedd Aquarium, Soldier field, Adler Planetarium, Field Museum, Navy Pier, Chicago Art Institute and more.
Disliked: There was mold in the bathroom shower walls and ceiling. The pool is NOT heated so don't plan on using the pool unless it's warm outside for a few days or summer. Picked this hotel because we thought our kids would enjoy but...

Jerry Fri, 12 January 2018

Liked: Location is great for any destinations in the South Loop!
Disliked: Shower ceiling was full of mold spots. The showers we took were the worst we've experienced. The water temperature fluctuated constantly from scalding hot to very cold. It was miserable.

Verified Hotel Guest Fri, 12 January 2018

Liked: Nice location for Art Institute of Chicago and Willis Building.
Disliked: Parking cost nearly as much as the room (valet only). If you're cost conscious shop around for a better deal nearby. We arrived after dark so I didn't want to drive around.
