    Just had a 4 day stay here after previously going to San Francisco and Seattle, the hotel was by far the best. Extremely clean and the staff were extremely helpful. Very central for the attractions and Close Michigan Avenue

    The location is excellent. The people friendly and helpful. The premium rooms (the ones at the building corners, street side) are large, the bed is good. These rooms are however rather noisy. For that price I would expect more comfort.

    I would say it's not anti kid, but it's definitely an adult environment. Other than taking out the bikes there's probably not a lot of kid activities.
