The hotel is extremely well located, just south of the Chicago River and just a block off Michigan Avenue. It's a converted historic building with a beautiful lobby and small, but pleasant rooms. The room was clean, and the elevators always seemed to work efficiently. I used the digital key on my phone and never had any problems with that. I did have an issue connecting to the wifi with my laptop computer, but the desk clerk was able to solve that quickly. The room was clean and quiet, and all the people I dealt with were friendly. The breakfast did seem a little sparse compared to other Hampton Inns, but it was still a step above most other midrange hotels. Prices seem to vary a lot at this location, but if you can get a good deal ($150 or under), I'd suggest you book it.

Hotel is in a historic building, the former Chicago Motor Club/AAA Building, right in the heart of the City. Clean comfortable rooms. Good variety breakfast in the morning included. Friendly and helpful front desk. Will stay there again.
