This hotel is in top notch condition and still feels new. I stayed 6 nights and thoroughly enjoyed my stay. Everything about this hotel was excellent. First, the location cannot be beat. It is in the heart of the Hyde Park area near the University with a nice movie theater across the street, and several reasonably priced restaurants with character immediately surrounding the area (1 block or 2), including the well-known deep dish pizza place of which I cannot remember the name. Next, the beds were very comfortable. It felt soft, but definitely had firm support. If I don't sleep on firm mattress, my back will hurt all day. The room was very nice. I usually do not care for contemporary design, but the living room area looked and felt great. The Oak veneer for the furniture was not as impressive, but the overall look still gave a luxurious feel (but this is with everything still feeling new). Internet was free and fast and complimentary work stations were provided in the lobby with free printing. I like a place that is not trying to nickel and dime me. The staff was very friendly and accommodating, including housekeeping which greeted me with a smile ("good morning"). I like a place that is friendly and where people seem happy to be at their work; this is one of those places. Finally, the complimentary breakfast was one of the best free breakfasts I have seen provided, with plenty of juice, bacon, sausage on real plates with real silverware (too bad only till 9).
