While great that the self-serve waffle breakfast is available, the whole place smelled overwhelmingly of artificial vanilla flavoring all day and night. Rooms were echoey, so noisy when occupants were moving ...

Its tucked away a bit. I was working out here very early in the AM and just needed this room for 1 night. Hotel staff was ...

Close to blue line train and easy access to ohare Nothing bad to say about the hotel. Some of the guests were not considerate, talking almost an hour in the shared private bathroom. Maybe a night light or something when guest come in after quiet hours and throw on the lights. Urgh.
