Perfect location to the beautiful magnificent miles.

This hotel is in the quiet location but steps away fr Michigan ave; across the street from the back entrance of Northstrom Mall. The pool has a beautiful view of Chicago. Good for family getaway!

Girls Getaway

Our three-day, two-night stay was a Chicago whirlwind made easier by Manager Jason and his friendly staff. Doors opened, cabs hailed, smiles given. Hot breakfast and a Monday dinner made life easy, too! We took in a musical, shopped too much, and made our way to the Steve Harvey Show--thanks for all the directions. We'll return with our husbands! Nancy & Karen

Amazing weekend!

This hotel was amazing!! The room was much bigger than usual, with a kitchen and separate bedroom and living room. The staff were were very friendly and accommodating. It was a great deal for the price I paid. I wouldn't want to stay at any other hotel in the future. I didn't want to leave!

Make sure you get the train and bus schedule and keep in on you at all times. It will help you not get lost like I did.

Great Location & Price...but beware of parking fee!

Great price for the location but was unaware of the parking fee which was another $50! I know it's Chicago and downtown but really? Amenities were great and the best part is it has a pool and breakfast was included. That's always a plus. I would definitely return.

You can have your parking fee validated for the N. Grand parking ramp (where we parked) if you spend at least $20 at Bed Bath and Beyond or Jewel Osco...but that's if you are only there for an hour. Otherwise it's $41 for overnight.

Great experience

The hotel location is perfect-- just off Michigan Avenue. For the location and affordable price, the suites / rooms are surprisingly very large and include a large kitchen. They also allow for extended parking (more than 24 hours) for one flat fee through their valet service, which is cheaper than public garages. The hotel also includes a complimentary weekend breakfast that was satisfying. I stayed here for a conference in Chicago, but would definitely come back for vacation and think the separated spacious kitchen / living room area and bedroom make it very comfortable for families.
