This hotel is just about perfect if you need a place to stay in Chicago and don't require luxury. It isn't fancy but also not a thing wrong with it, and I am picky about hotels. The location is wonderful, two blocks from the subway stop and half a block from the Water Tower Place where you can get anything you need for your stay including a good meal when all the other downtown restaurants have 1 hr long waits. Plus the rooms are fresh and clean, nice big old fashioned windows for great city views. A few blocks from the hubbub, super quiet. A Starbucks that was NEVER crowded is directly across the street. So great for starting your day with a nice espresso to get you going. All the staff were very nice, got me a competitively priced cab to the airport - no waiting, no ride sharing, just a good ride to the airport. Special thanks to front desk staff who didn't laugh at me when I told her my room card didn't work and I showed her my subway pass. hahahahaha. Thanks all! Appreciate nice people in strange cities.

Ok, I’ll only review this fact:
When booking via hotels.com, in Swedish, I read that there was supposed to be a SPA at the hotel (pool and sauna).
When I asked in the reception, they just laughed at me. Over and over again stated: ”we never had a SPA here”, instead of beeing sorry and/or trying to compensate me.
When I repeatedly said it might be good that the correct information is on the internet, so people (like me) won’t be disappointed, they said they would inform the manager.
