Cool Vintage Hotel

Good place to sleep
Hotel was clean and beds were comfortable. Pillows were also very comfortable as well. Could use some updating in the hallways and the ice machine was broken on our floor. Hotel staff was nice, they also helped us get around when we had questions.

Clean, friendly and professional service.
We loved our stay. The room and hotel was clean and provided everything we were looking for in a hotel. The agent at the desk upgraded us to a lakeview room; which we super appreciated.

Hotel needs a serious update
We unexpectedly had to stay another night in Chicago and this was the only hotel we found within walking distance with a room available under $300. We booked with hotels.com and had no problem getting checked in. The decor and rooms are very old and musty. There was no toilet paper in the room and one of the lamps was broken and the A/C was stuck on Arctic Blast so we all had to wear sweatshirts to bed. The room was clean however and the beds were comfy. The bathroom was also clean with anything that we needed including disposable toothbrushes. This was appreciated since we did not have access to any toiletries. There didn't seem to be anyplace to grab a quick breakfast so we walked next door to the Hilton, which had a nice to go breakfast area with coffee, muffins, fruit and breakfast sandwiches. Would probably stay at the Hilton next time.
