I was very disappointed in not having a true lake view room having paid extra for it. Needing to stand at the window and look to your left is not what I expected for a lakeview room nor what the pictures indicated what one could expect. I chose this hotel specifically for the lake view and the view from our room was mostly of a tree and some apartments or condos.

"Very quiet and comfortable and close to Monroe St."
This is the fourth or fifth time we've stayed here so we are familiar with the industrial type rooms with the comfy beds and furniture. Love the coffee machine and the kitchen facilities. It is close to relatives so makes a perfect place for us to stay.
