I don't understand everyone bad-mouthing the free breakfast. The fruit, oatmeal, donuts, coffee, and juice are standard "continental breakfast" fare, which you will receive at most of the hotels in the area, including the $300/night hotels. Anyway, my boyfriend and I found this gem while I was searching for hotels within the city limits that wouldn't require us to apply...

Came in to Chicago from NY to catch the Yankee game at Wrigley. I booked this place in May because of the price and it is near the area my family is at. We checked in on Thursday the 16th of June and the gentleman at the front desk was not able to find my reservation, I knew there would...

My boyfriend and I decided that we would take a vacation and follow the Yankees for 2 weeks and catch 14 ballgames. After a week in NY, we came to chicago for 3 nights. Reviews from this website said it was clean, and knowing we would only be in the room to sleep, that was the important thing. The hotel...

We stayed at the Heart O' Chicago on a Saturday night because we had to be up early Sunday morning for an activity at Montrose Beach and our daughter lives in Andersonville. Easily booked a room over the phone. Good location near Clark, Ashland, and Broadway. Staff was friendly. Good basic continental breakfast. Room was very clean. Easy checkout. Nothing...

I have stayed at this hotel many times and consistenly the rooms while nothing fancy they are always clean and maintained.

Dad and I wanted to take a train from Boston to Chicago and stay on the train. We weren't looking for anything special, just a clean room for two nights and good accomodations for a fair price. A pleasant surprise was the complimentary coffee and continental breakfast with restaurant like seating. Nce way to start the day. See Wrigley &...

I had high hopes for this place. $80, I figured, was a decent price for a hotel in Uptown Chicago. I should have paid thirty more for a much better place. The desk clerks were beyond rude, one of whom was oblivious to my presence for a little over four minutes. The clerk upon check-in was much worse, treating me...

My boyfriend and I stayed at the Heart during a weekend trip to Chicago and were pleased. Obviously, you pay for what you get and the hotel was on the cheap side so we didn't expect much, but we got what we paid for: a clean place to rest our heads at night and shower for a day out on...
