    Ancient creaky hotel. Lots of heritage apparently. Does not impact the stay though. Limited facilities in the room. Great location and hence lovely view of the Magnificent Mile. I got some great runs on Balbo and Lakeshore Trail. The breakfast at Gazebo was fulsome. Nice...More

    It's a good hotel and well located. If there is something that we need, staff will attend immediately. However, I was expecting a more modern hotel and better beds. Furthermore, curtains did not prevent light to come in the room. Another good thing is that...More

    The newly updated room we stayed in, was probably redone in the 1960s. Call the hotel directly and ask for the suite # and verify with them.
