Poor
Pros: Nice character. If a person wants to stay in downtown Chicago and do nothing but hang out downtown it's a great location. However if one wants to explore Chicago out of downtown hard to do when the parking has no in and outs for overnights, except the EL.
Cons: Small room, no basics like a clock or small frig. Toilet ran constantly. Took forever to get hot water going in shower. Air conditioner barely worked. No free breakfast as advertised. Rude reception staff and $46.00, night parking fee. Glad to leave.

Poor
Pros: Nice character. If a person wants to stay in downtown Chicago and do nothing but hang out downtown it's a great location. However if one wants to explore Chicago out of downtown hard to do when the parking has no in and outs for overnights, except the EL.
Cons: Small room, no basics like a clock or small frig. Toilet ran constantly. Took forever to get hot water going in shower. Air conditioner barely worked. No free breakfast as advertised. Rude reception staff and $46.00, night parking fee. Glad to leave.

Pros: The location was convenient.
Cons: The wifi was not free and breakfast was not included. The hotel's website said both of these amenities were available. I wouldn't have chosen this hotel if I'd known the actual amenities.

Fair
Pros: I liked the building and the room.
Cons: There were people acting ridiculous right outside our room at 4am and tried to call security with no answer. There was only two people at the front desk which I understand because no one wants to work these days but the line went around the lobby.

Disappointing
Pros: Nothing!
Cons: The lines was super long for a Saturday night with only 3 older people working doing the best they could. My air was barely working in the room I called downstairs several times and did not get an answer. Only one elevator was working for the south tower.
