R. Hoffman, LaPorte Sat, 9 March 2013

We loved the hotel, but within 45 minutes of each other two different employees just walked in to our room. Luckily it wasn't at an inopportune moment. We told the front desk and all that was said was "sorry". Would have loved to give 5 stars, but this tainted the stay. Breakfast also lacked a lot for the class of the rest of the hotel.

Liked: Wonderful old architecture,
Disliked: Room intrusions; breakfast.

Liked: The location was awesome. Very convenient to shopping and Restaurants. The Price was much higher than we usually pay for higher rated hotels. Could have been the weekend but can't say it was a good deal.
Disliked: Hotel is very old and it shows. Breakfast area is very small and limited. Tv's in room are flat screen but very small as well. Everything seemed Clean and the beds we're OK.

Good - 3.5 out of 5

Brian Fri, 14 September 2018

Liked: Fantastic location, close to Wrigley Field, blocks away from Lake Michigan and just a nice walk to downtown (about 3.5 miles). Very quiet part of the neighborhood with lots of dining options nearby.
Disliked: My one big concern was the amount of black mold/mildew in the shower all over the place. You could tell the window had not been treated or cleaned in quite awhile. It was disgusting. Everything else about the hotel was great. Room 309
