Don’t listen to all those negative reviews. This place is wonderful ! I love the location, the room was clean and very appealing. The staff were very helpful in every way and the coffee shop makes some wonderful lattes. *I got iced white mocha and lavender lattes with oatmilk every morning, soo good. This place is wonderful, especially if you’re looking for an authentic Chicago feel.

Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities
Staff was friendly and helpful, my room was comfortable, spacious and clean, and the area was minutes away from the Navy Pier, top restaurants and a multitude of awesome attractions! My favorite thing about the location was being able to wake up and hit the trail/beach during sunrise! Check in and check out was hassle free!
