The staff were amazing - extremely friendly and wanted to know if there was anything they could do to make our stay great. Rooms were clean and comfortable (good value for the money), and I really liked the eco-friendly water bottle stations! Location was perfect for the Loop and the Mile.

Very unique room layouts. The parking deck for this property was about 4 blocks away but you will walk that far for anythign in Chicago so why not parking as well.

We absolutely loved the view from our river-view room. This hotel was in walking distance of everything that was included in our city pass. The parking was easy to figure out and was close to the hotel. The hotel and room were both very nice. We'll definitely be staying here again in the future.
