I like that breakfast was offered, however could have started earlier for those needing to comute into the city for 8:00 meeting. Room was clean and average.
Window panes are thin. I had to listen to the train and a runny toilet due to a bad flapper.
Staff was wonderful, friendly, very helpful.
Breakfast was fine, not great. A/C was sporatic, but overall the room was clean and quiet.
Location is really good, close to train station and many bars. Also walking distance from the lake.
The breakfast was not good at all.
Room 90% renovated, snowy white bedding with super comfortable beds and pillows. Very decent breakfast for a hotel provided breakfast. Very nice, helpful staff. Exterior renovation is being done and some interior yet to do.
$14 a day parking
The staff was very friendly
Rooms, elevators were not very clean. The a/c was a very old unit that could not be controlled from the room. Windows were filthy with bugs from the outside. Computer was not working at check in time. Had to wait over 45 minutes
Proximity to the train was great! Easy access to the ball park.
The room was slanted from settling so I had trouble with the door locking. Had to slam it shut.
Simple, no frills, very clean and friendly staff.
Great location, decent breakfast, very nice staff
You have to pay for parking, just be aware of that
Administration was helpful. Hotel clean. Good value for cost.
The room was clean, the breakfast better than average, and a free newspaper was nice. Parking was $14 per day. This adds up.
Loved the location although we could hear the train from time to time during the night.
They could have had bread at breakfast. They did have bagels but I like to make toast.
I dont have a lot of words. It was really good!!
The staff were very friendly and helpful. Hotel was a good price for a hotel in the Chicago proximity.
There wasn't clear signage on where to park while unloading and checking in but we were able to get the car moved as soon as we got that info at the front desk.
The staff was great and so helpful
Not enough parking for all guests (they were fully booked). I had a reservation for two queen beds and they gave us a queen. I did kot make a fuss since it was just my daughter and I but it was still wrong
The bed and pillows were wonderful. Staff was very pleasant and helpful. The view from our room was breathtaking and for the cost it was great.
There was no refrigerator in the room to keep our drinks and food cold.
Beds were comfortable Breakfast selection was good but was not serviced well enough to keep up with demand.
No hot tub with pool Decor was outdated Temperature variations between lobby/hallways/rooms/breakfast area No indoor pool Breakfast selection was good but was not serviced well enough to keep up with demand.
They didn't replace soap or towels
