Hi there, Is the property closed to Naval Base? I called the reservation department January 12, 2024 around 10:45 pm for the representative is not familiar with the Naval Base. She told me that, there is no such place like that there. She is funny. There’s only one Naval Base in Illinois Chicago that I know. She was dumb and her mind is very slow. The representative is not fit to that position since she is not familiar in Chicago… very slow representative in the reservation department. I don’t know what planet she came from but I guess she is not fit on that job. From a very simple question, your staff cannot answer the question, how much more on giving quality service to your customers. Not reliable and poor reservation representative staff.

What a great experience! From the front desk staff, to the staff in the breakfast area - everyone was delightful. Customer service was top notch. The room was spacious, comfortable and had all the amenities you could need (refrigerator, stove, dishwasher, dinnerware, silverware, coffeemaker). The location was very close to the bus, as well as many attractions. I would highly recommend this property!
