The room was right next to a busy parking garage with a lot of horn honking throughout the stay. Also, the air/heat unit did not work.

Liked: Cleanliness
Disliked: Amenities, property conditions & facilities
We loved the location, it was perfect to be able to walk everywhere. We were two young women and felt quite safe in the hotel. We could do Michigan ave and millenium park easily. However, front desk service was not entirely hospitable, our heater was broken and they refused to change our room. They sent maintenance to fix it but he just changed the filter, it still didn’t work even though he said it was fixed. We had extremely noisy neighbors the first night as the walls are very thin. There was also a surprise $10/night fee that they brought up once we arrived, stating that Expedia didn’t include that fee when we reserved it.
