Not sure if the construction was this hotel's or not, but it started at 4am right down from our window and was so loud. The hotel did provide ear plugs, though. Other than that, we loved this hotel! The staff were very welcoming to us small-towners and Showtime, the concierge, was fantastic! He had great suggestions that helped us save mone, eat great food, and really enjoy the city.
We stayed here for the weekend of the Hot Chocolate 5k. It is a very nice place. Very clean, great location, everything you need for a great weekend in Chicago. The staff are particularly friendly and can give you recommendations for places to eat and things to do. Very close to State St and Michigan Ave and Buckingham Fountain.
