The room was very simple, but very clean. Furnishings and sheets are worn, towels are very thin, but everything is usable. Bed comfort was okay. Staff was helpful but seemingly very busy. There is no charge for parking, which is a plus in Chicago, and it was near where I needed to go. If you are looking for restaurants, the hotel was very close to the Hyde Park area, which has a number of very good restaurants. Overall, it fulfilled the purpose for which I was in Chicago, and was clean and quiet.
Great location! Spectacular floor to ceiling views. Walking distance to Grant Park, Roosevelt station a few blocks away, bus stop at front door. Great neighborhood restaurants, Go Grocer entrance in the lobby, Trader Joes, Jewel-Osco, Walgreens,Target, and movie theater all within walking distance. Safe neighborhood, secure building. 3 bedroom/ 2 1/2 bath, plenty of room for six adults. Love having a full kitchen and laundry room for a week long stay. 7th floor has pretty decent workout room, vending machines, outdoor pool and grills. We stayed for 7 days and this location was perfect for everything we wanted to do. I highly recommend getting a multi day metro card. We rarely waited longer than 10 minutes for a bus outside the front door. Taxis always available as well. The people we rented from provided great information about the apartment before we arrived and were good about responding to phone calls or email questions while we were there.
"Great hotel when staying close to Univ of Chicago"
This hotel is a fabulous place to stay when needing a hotel close to the Univ of Chicago medical center or other facilities. The staff is extremely courteous and capable. There are several restaurants just across the street. I enjoy having a glass of wine in the lobby by the fireplace in the evening. Very nice and spacious rooms. Nice breakfast is included in the mornings. Shuttle service to local areas. I highly recommend this hotel.
The brewed coffee at the lobby was very delicious, and tasted like it was always freshly brewed - a far cry from the brewed coffee of name hotels that seem to me to have a bitter after taste.
We liked it that the hotel had a red phone, which when lifted was answered by a taxi company, and the taxi arrived soon after that.
