    Very cool and unique property, nice job of refurbishing the place. The location is really great and the staff were super attentive and friendly. The bar was also very nice.

    The rooms are a bit on the small side but not shockingly so. The property is kind of dark, not much natural light, but that is largely because it is an old building.

    Stylish interiors of lobby and bar

    Choosing a delux King room, I had: the view on the brick wall, a super vented but non heated bathroom with just a warm shower and room slippers on request. Being tried to be charged randomly for the services I didn't have...

    Location of hotel was great.

    Food was overpriced for what you got. In room dining options were limited with very few light or healthy options. What they did have lacked creativity and freshness. A $40 breakfast should be both. Some staff were very friendly, others were cold and a bit too cool rather than service focused. Walls were thin and I could hear the elevator clunking loudly.

    Everyone was very friendly and paid attention to details. No matter how big or small. That's what sets you apart from other hotels. I'll always remember that and recommended the Chicago athletic. We had a great time and a lovely view.

    Nothing.
