I loved staying here and will definitely be back. The location was great, the room was great, the staff was very accommodating and so much more! The only thing I wish I had in the room was a microwave to reheat my deep dish pizza :) I think I could have requested one, but I didn’t know until the day I was checking out, but overall still 10/10 experience!
