Very Basic Hotel
This is a very basic chicago downtown hotel. The rooms very clean but very Spartan in their ammeneties. Staff is good but probably won't stay again in the future.

Fair2.0 / 5
Awesome location but very limited amenities.
The employees were fine, but the hotel lacked the charm one expected when staying in a legendary hotel. The elevator to our room had issues and was only conditionally approved for use. Our room key did not open doors to the hotel as indicated and we were disappointed in the very limited dining fare offered.

Great location!
The hotel was in a great location! But, the hotel itself is very old. If you are looking for a grand hotel, that has amazing, fancy rooms, this is not it. It is a simple hotel with the bare necessities. The lobby looks amazing but thats about it, everything else is super old!
