I usually stay in Hilton properties and chose this hotel for its location in downtown Chicago. Check-in was easy and we were granted a previously requested early check in, with early check in fee waived. The room on the Ohio Street side was a nice size. However this hotel is in need of an update. The bath tub is chipped up and attempts have been made to cover the flaked off areas with paint. The carpet is dark and dated. I stayed in a Hilton Garden Inn in Memphis just before this trip. It was nicer, and had more amenities in the bathroom. The toilet paper at DT was rough! There are better options in the area for the price.

The hotel is at a good location. The staff is friendly and helpful enough to assist. However the building clearly has needs for improvements and the pictures don’t do it’s justice. The elevators only 2 were working someone said for the past few days now. Took a long time to go to the room. Then there are no water bottles anywhere to find (evenings pass a certain time) you need to make sure you find water for the night. The rooms are clean but outdated and much smaller than the average rooms and the bathrooms even smaller and outdated as well. The breakfast option was average to my opinion, and you’re better off going right outside there are plenty of places since Chicago has good food. You have to park your car to the garage which is convenient and once you pay the lobby you don’t need a ticket, the camera scans your plates to go in and out (that worths the convenience) but its a challenge to get luggage’s up and down. Taking out the car doesn’t worth it because parking is expensive. For the price I think I could of booked something closer to the river walk and with a much newer hotel.
