Nice hotel, central location, a few improvements could go a long way. ||We found this to be a nice & clean hotel for our family trip to Chicago. It was centrally located with Uber/Lyfts easy to get. The hotel had lovely holiday decor which was a nice touch. The breakfast was comprehensive and nice. ||A few improvements could go a long way to make this a five star property. ||1) offer water bottles to guests, or leave them in the room at no-charge. This seems like a basic amenity||2) the entrance door to the hotel was not working (the automatic push button was not working). This can cause accessibility issues and the door is extremely heavy. ||3) extra effort to sound proof the hotel / windows would be good. This is hotel is vertically close to a hospital and even on the higher floors the noise is quite audible. ||I would stay at this location again.

This place is a little hidden or rather the building is sunk into the building a bit so we almost walked past it. Inside it was smaller than expected and it looked like a fancy Motel 8 to me but it was clean and people were friendly. There was a man who was obviously drunk and losing his lunch in his room and it could be heard very clearly in our room. The people who take reservations messed up how many nights we booked and they had an attitude when we called but that's not the hotels fault. The room was clean but to me the mattress was hard. The bathroom looked like an amateur fixed it up but the price was good. We were looking for a place to sleep not a night on the town so it did suit our needs. There is a lot of places to eat near by but all night we could hear ambulances going by and trucks blasting their horns.
