Reviewed 26 October 2013

The front desk, bar and restaurant and rooms at this hotel are very very high quality and at a price which is significantly lower than similar luxury properties. The proximity to shopping restaurants and night life is excellent as well. I recommend staying here if you are visiting Chicago.

We spent a week in Chicago and found this a perfect place for exploring the city. Staff is young, energetic and friendly. The location is great for walking to many of Chicago's sights. There are a few bicycles to use, free of charge. Our room was immaculate, huge and had a picture window with nice views of the city. Would...

We stayed here the single night we were in Chicago but the Palomar would have been nice to visit another night or two.

This Hotel is quietly perfect. Everything is easy and the service unobtrusive. I found the location ideal.

I reserved a basic room and I can tell you that it is anything but basic. It is extremely spacious, has floor-to-ceiling windows, has a huge bathroom, and a comfortable mattress. The hotel offers its guests complimentary wine and snacks each evening, and it is located in a great part of town. I highly recommend staying here!
