This hotel is in a perfect location. A short walk to the magnificent mile, Mellium park. The train is a short walk away that will take you to Wrigley Field, Lincoln park zoo. The hotel staff are awesome. So helpful. Nice clean hotel.

Hotel is very well placed, so easy to visit museums, and river boats and has great views. Staff so helpful and well informed. Even provides launderette for guests so handy when travelling a lot. Lots of good places to eat along the Riverwalk.
