Perfect for what it is
Excellent choice for what I needed. Club Quarters (owner) seems to be perfect for the efficiency downtown studio option so useful to business travelers needing to be downtown (not the nicest neighborhood for most visit purposes). The room is a studio, not spacious but roomy by efficiency studio standards; there is a microwave, fridge, writing desk, nice bathroom with sink outside the room, FREE FILTERED WATER (bonus points!). Location is as central as could be, with a view (albeit of the Trump tower, which admittedly is not for everyone). I found the bed comfy and the room and other spaces immaculate--free espresso and a board room and tv and comfy chairs on 2nd floor and others, free printing! Nay-sayers here seemed to expect a different kind of hotel, so know what you want. Some seem to think it is expensive, which is nuts (paid $100 in a major city downtown). Parking downtown is always pricey (I took the train). Or they've never been to a city or Europe or anywhere before, can't say. This place is good for what it is. Complainers

Loved it!
Exceptionally friendly staff members! Always answered my questions and offered to help. Room size was great and spacious, always clean. A detail that I loved was the free water stations near the elevators! Excellent location in downtown Chicago. Walking distance to all the main attractions.

Perfect family getaway
Fantastic family suite with two (!) bathrooms and actual plates and glassware in the kitchenette. Very comfortable beds. Front desk staff was the most energetic and welcoming I’ve seen in a long time - made us feel like royalty. Perfect location near theater district. Elegant foyer. Quiet. Great coffee.
