4/5 Good

Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service
They were great about a locked out situation where neither myself not the staff could get in the room by giving us a new room right away. The room itself though was clean yet there was a small hole in the wall by the window and the shower was cramped and had black spots on the ceiling from previous water stains. An update seems needed but the sleep was good and the bed was clean. The staff were great and the water available was a nice touch. There was no safe in the room either to keep things locked up which was shocking.

The location is great. Right along the Riverwalk and a short walk to the Magnificent Mile and Navy Pier (about 15-20 minute walk). They do have a self parking garage, but it’s located a couple blocks away. Its not on site. It’s called the Wabash-Randolph Garage. If you book the option with parking included, the hotel validates the ticket for you at the front desk. If you’re handicapped or a solo woman traveler, keep in mind the distance you’ll have to walk back from the parking garage to the hotel. The bellhops/valets are very helpful as well.

3/5 Okay

Liked: Cleanliness, property conditions & facilities
Disliked: Amenities
I liked the location and the view was good. I didn’t like that the room was not once cleaned. The people at the front desk were like robots. I found that strange because I was dazzled by the friendly people outside of the hotel. They need to add some warm Chicago hospitality.
