This is not a hotel – it's a hostel for young adults. If you're expecting a hostel, then you will be pleased! The expedia profile for this property is completely misleading. There is NO bar, NO restaurant, NO coffee – all these amenities are CLOSED. Staff were pleasant, and all in all, it wasn't bad. But if you're looking for a boutique HOTEL, this is not it. It doesn't have a service or hospitality aspect to it.

The place was in a great location in the heart of downtown Chicago with loads of restaurants and bars just down the street. A CVS and Walgreens close by as well. The room had a tape sign that it had been thoroughly cleaned and the set of the room was fantastic and the view from my window was AMAZING. The person at the service desk was very welcoming and he was able to answer all my questions. The few complaints I have are to offer locks for the cubbies, my cubby was slightly skewed, and the reading light by my bed was not working.

What a joke. "Found" the biggest ripoff in Chicago. The rooms were smaller than small, no comforter on the bed. The place was freezing, so despite the weather outside being in the middle of a heatwave, i had to turn on the heat in my room! I booked a room for 2 people but only got one shower towel. The place was dank and reminded me of a cheaply remodled drug house. And for $300 a night, they couldnt even spring for plastic cups so i can get a drink of water in the middle of the night. I will never stay at this place again.
