No robes. Called down and they said they were going to bring them up. Never came. Ordered room service... took an hour and an half. When they said it would take 30 mins. It was a cheese board... oh also ordered drinks with it. Drinks were horrible. Tv remote did not work half the time. Volume would randomly turn up and down. Walls are SUPER thin, can hear literally everything everywhere. “City view” waste of money. Seen a rooftop and an apartment complex which you can clearly see everyone and their business. And an odd observation, when we checked out the guy did not ask how our stay was. Overall, will definitely not be returning.

It was a great stay, only issue was parking. Guess some guests that were there for the weekend was throwing parties which caused the parking situation. But other than that great stay. Also a huge thanks to Renee and Arlene for setting up my room for me my girlfriend. Thanks ladies!!!

I stayed here years ago. Wonderful experience back then. This time you can see the wear and tear on the room. The shower flooded the bathroom floor. We were not offered a new room or a reduced rate. I had to get dressed with a stranger in the room because we had reservations. We asked for a late checkout and we were told no. Not worth the star rating or price paid.

Favorite Hotel in Chicago so far. The location is simple to access. The rooms are really nice, can’t enjoy the hotel amenities due to Covid but still worth the stay.
