Location was good. The condition of the room was poor. Ceiling was peeled which exposed the underlying cement. No microwave or refrigerator- had to request from staff which was not convenient. No usb ports. Needs some updating.

It was my very 1st time in Chicago. Had a great experience from checking in and checking out. The only negative was how dark it was inside. Walking in the hallway, by the elevator, everywhere inside was extremely dark. Otherwise, great view and friendly staff.

Pros: hip, young vibe in lobby and rooms. Great location with views of the lake and Navy Pier, plus access to all downtown. Very sweet staff and doormen. Cons: for the price point, bathrooms are lacking in amenities and upgrades. No bath robes, black grout that looks dirty, tubs and shower heads that need updating, vents, and no sink space. Loud, loud music playing in lobby and dimly lit hallways. If you want to come here to relax, not the place. Beds were so not comfortable. Remember to ask for a coffee maker in room as they do not come with them.
