This place is fine if you don t expect too much. It is old and definitely feels it. The room was spacious enough. It is relatively cheap and if you do not spend much time in your room like we do, then it is a good value. It is near Millennium Park, the Art Institute, and other great Chicago attractions. With this place it is all about location.
Cheapest in the area
Literally everything else. It s an old hotel, sure. However, everything inside feels like it was obtained from a second-hand store. The room feels really dirty. The wifi stays connected for maybe 15 seconds at a time (with one bar as well), then disconnects for a few minutes. A speed test revealed around 0.5 Mbps download with 0.7 Mbps upload when I was connected; there are no hard line connections in the room either, so forget trying to do anything online unless you use their station in the lobby or you have a great data plan. The bathroom smelled like mold and there were stains on the mirror. There was a flat screen tv, but a basic cable connection with spotty reception (FOX came in like it was coming through rabbit ears and some channels didn t come in at all). The rooms are not sound deadened, so you can hear everything going on around like people talking in the halls and the El going by every 5 minutes. Most of the staff is rude as well, and parking is quite expensive.
