Exceptional - 5.0 out of 5

Brenda, Milton 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.

Disappointing - 2.0 out of 5

Verified Hotel Guest Fri, 17 November 2017

Liked: Good location.
Disliked: Hotel overall is dated and run down. The wi-fi was completely unreliable so this is not an appropriate hotel for business travel. Staff was cordial but didn't not seem to be well trained.

Poor - 0.5 out of 5

Jeff Fri, 17 November 2017

Liked: Location.
Disliked: Everything, dirty, run-down, my room was not cleaned which required the front desk person to put in a different room at midnight.

Good - 3.5 out of 5

Verified Hotel Guest Fri, 17 November 2017

Liked: The hotel was located just south of downtown, allowing easy access to downtown, but with less crowds and traffic. Quick access to McCormick Convention Center. On-site staff was very helpful and friendly, but contact pre-arrival was rude and difficult.
Disliked: This is an old building with heat controlled by the hotel for all rooms. The room was either too warm, or you had to leave the air conditioner on (one speed) so it was too cold. The only way to keep it right was with windows open making it loud at night.

Wonderful - 4.5 out of 5

Nathan Fri, 17 November 2017

Liked: Friendly, helpful staff
Disliked: Their parking was insanely expensive. $60 for for one night of parking is highway robbery.

Fair - 2.5 out of 5

Verified Hotel Guest Fri, 17 November 2017

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...

Verified Hotel Guest Fri, 17 November 2017

Liked: Location was excellent. Close to lots of things and easy to get to trains and buses.
Disliked: The heating and cooling in the building are old. You can't control the tempature in the room. If you turn it on in the fall and winter, it will blow hit air. No way to have it cooler. We had to get a fan.
