I loved the location and history of this hotel. It wasn’t fancy but it was clean and the bed was very comfortable.
I really wish they had water available in the lobby. They had containers out there but they never had water in them at all for the three days we were there.
Big spacious rooms - very high ceilings and old decor with modern furnishings and very comfy beds Lovely hotel even though we found out it was the most haunted in Illinois
It was the middle of August so the weather was hot but had to turn the ac off as soon as we got in the room as it was like a freezer, and no controls to have any heat. Also most of the hotel was the same - had to wear a jumper in the restaurant as it was so cold
We loved the location, really close to Millenium Park! It was confortable and people was really nice! People was really nice!
We had issues with the bathroom, it is really old and they had to fix it. Also the food service was poor, it was better to walk around and grab something!
The layout of the room and the location to transportation
Location was great
