3/5 Okay

Travelled with family
Disliked: Cleanliness, staff & service
I picked this for the proximity to Wrigley Field, which was a 10 minute walk. It was comfortable and full of character. The rooms could have been cleaner and the shared bathroom was stripped of any extras like soap. I arrived and the person at the desk didn’t know where to tell me to park with the residential parking permit they give you for free. The continental breakfast was underwhelming - but, better than nothing.

Unique property with vintage vibe. Within walking distance to Wrigley Field and many restaurants. Parking pass a plus. Continental breakfast is coffee, juice and breakfast bars which great if your on the go right away in the morning. The only thing I cringed at was the creaky wood floor in the hallway, I felt like I was going to wake people up when walking downstairs in the morning for coffee.
