The rooms at this hotel are teeny tiny as is the gym (no pool), but if you are only looking for a clean, comfortable place to lay your head at night and some friendly faces to greet you in the
morning as you head out to enjoy the amazing Chicago sights at your doorstep, this is perfect!
If you have kids, you may need two separate rooms. The standard room here is a Queen room with NO room for an extra bed or pullout. At this price, it's still an amazing deal, but rooms do not adjoin, so it may not be appropriate if you have very young kids that can't be trusted on their own in a hotel room.
The gym is very small - two treadmills, one bike and some free weights, however, if the weather is good, you are only a mile or so from the lake front path.
Overall, a fantastic value. Breakfast is predictable and fairly "processed" but it does the trick since you'll likely want to leave room for a Chicago sized lunch and dinner. [Less]
