Pros: The location was close to several different things. Lots of shopping and restaurants within walking distance. We also received a free upgrade on our room! The room was very spacious. I also enjoyed the heater in the room.
Cons: The water pressure was weak and the water temperature did not get very hot. Our bathroom door would not latch. The mini fridge was stocked with items for cost, but did not allow much room for your own items (like drinks and leftovers).

Good
Pros: Fantastic location, close to Wrigley Field, blocks away from Lake Michigan and just a nice walk to downtown (about 3.5 miles). Very quiet part of the neighborhood with lots of dining options nearby.
Cons: My one big concern was the amount of black mold/mildew in the shower window...like all over the place. You could tell the window had not been treated or cleaned in quite awhile. It was disgusting. Everything else about the hotel was great. Room 309

Exceptional
Cozy and charming small hotel in the midst of a thriving neighborhood. This is a 100 year old establishment so the charm is wonderful. Very clean, attentive staff, and comfortable.

Pros: Lovely building, continental breakfast is great, coffee all the time and water pitchers ready with ice cold water. Room was comfortable. Had 2 king (maybe queen) size beds and lots of room to spread out. In room refrigerator and an honor system with the room goodies. Love the bathrobe they provided. Staff was friendly and helpful. Had nearby parking (extra) with in and out privileges. Loved the location and the neighborhood.
Cons: Would have been nice to have more shelving in the bathroom -- but, it is a 100 year old building. My husband would have liked a couch. The air conditioner was a little noisy. But would recommend this hotel to anyone (caveat: if people need efficient, bland hotel chains they would probably not like this -- and they would be missing out).
