This hotel was a great find. It was very comfortable, the room was huge, and it even had a mini fridge, microwave, and table! The staff was friendly and helpful. The bed was comfortable, even after a long stay. What I really liked was the proximity to the train into Chicago (while not being close enough for noise), so we didn't have to drive anywhere and the neighborhood felt safe. There was also an internal AC/heater so you can control your room temperature.
If you don't mind a longer drive and a train ride into Chicago, this location is great in comparison to staying in the suburbs. The trains go directly to downtown and along the lake, so there is minimal transferring necessary unless you're going more towards the center of Chicago. Also, the train and buses both use the CTA transit passes (suburbs use different train), which is a cheap unlimited option. These can be found at Walgreens and other places, 1 day $5.75, 3 day $14, 7 day $27, etc., all on a 24 hour basis.
The only downside is actually getting to the hotel, as there is no major highway in that direction. We had to drive on the major roads of the suburbs and city areas in that direction. Also, you may want to bring a powerstrip if you plan on plugging more than one thing in as there are not many power outlets in the rooms. (I've found it's like this at many hotels.)
