Rooms are comfortable and very clean. Small but efficient with everything you need. Friendly staff. Hotel consistently reached out to ensure everything was going well and to inquire about feedback.

Short business trip, great overall. They should invest in softer linens.

Decent hotel for the price*

Posted Feb 10, 2018
The hotel was the best priced in the area we wanted to be in. One thing we didn't expect was the parking situation. There isn't any for free unless you want to park half a mile away at the zoo, good luck finding a spot. It was a very unpleasant surprise. They charge $60 a night for valet parking or you can pay $30 to park in a lot down the street. If we would have taken the parking cost into consideration we could've stayed somewhere nicer.

Great location. Great restaurant and coffee shop.

Posted Feb 4, 2018
European feel. Down to earth atmosphere. A little noisy at times ( boiler noise in heating system) and when the company who collects laundry was loading elevator. The coffee shop in the lobby was quaint.The restaurant was fantastic.

Got a VIP Upgrade

Posted Jan 30, 2018
Pros: Location. The VIP room has two toilets which I have never seen before and good that it has a couch
Cons: Probably the heater could be upgraded but small matter.
Location: Chicago Zoo Second City Old Town Chicago History Museum Lincoln Park
Really cool hotel next to Lincoln Park which is about 15 mins to the Chicago Zoo. North Michigan Avenue was a 30-40 min walk. Food wise you have Old Town nearby. Walgreens was about a 10 min walk away. Second City was also very close by next to Walgreens. It's on the quieter part of Chicago city if that's what you like. Staff there are really helpful and great too. Great job in running the hotel.

Small, Cozy Room with a Nice View

Posted Jan 29, 2018
I paid for a king room with a lake view on the 8th floor and was not disappointed. The room was smaller than expected and nothing special, however. The decor and the bathroom look like any other cheap hotel I’ve stayed in. I have stayed at the Congress Plaza Hotel as well as Hotel Felix in Chicago, so in comparison I was not impressed considering this room cost more than the other two. However, the staff was very friendly and the location is excellent. We went to a concert at the Riviera and it was a short uber ride there, and the following day it was a quick drive downtown for lunch.
