Pleasant - 3 out of 5

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.

Cute neighborhood hotel

Liked: Cute street precense and a great neighborhood. Many pubs and places to eat within walking distance including the blue man group theater. Hotel is generally in very good condition. The front desk clerk in the afternoon was excellent! Good value for chicsgo!
Disliked: The building is almost 100 years old and some areas smell musty. Parking down the alley is $21 a night! There are no views of anything but buildings right next door.

Was a lovely hotel in...

Liked: The staff was most friendly and helpful; the location was ideal for what we were in Chicago to do - visit North Park University and visit family living Uptown.
Disliked: Would have liked a coffee maker in the room - not convenient to go down to the lobby for that first cup!
