Great baseball weekend
Ideal location - walking distance to M mile, restos and cafes. Easy transit to Wrigley field and close to nightlife. Hotel amenities are on point.

Amazing! Room was beautiful! Staff was nice & offered a discount due to a minor issue.
Charnay, us1 night trip
Very Good 8.0
Did a staycation for my b day. I am a nurse in the ICU in search of a much needed get away. Hotel is beautiful and room is gorgeous. In the midst of covid 19 I understand precautions however the restaurant is closed, no food room service, and no daily room cleaning service. The fridge in the room didnt work so they had to bring a small portable one in the room. Also there is no microwave on the premises to use to reheat up our food we got from takeout since there is no restaurant or room service. We were advised to go 2 doors down to a sister hotel to do so. I didnt get a card or anything even though I stated it was my birthday. Other than those things Id recommend the place once covid19 settles down more.

Fair 4.0
I only booked this hotel because it said pet friendly... only to find out it’s only dog friendly and I’m a cat owner....soooo.... I had to pay for a last minute for a cat $$$ittter.. very expensive for the weekend. The lady who checked us in was dry.. i wrote on my reservation that it’s my husbands birthday and she didn’t say anything

Great Stay, Horrible Customer Service
I booked this hotel from May 23rd - May 24th for my boyfriend’s birthday. The stay and night was amazing. However, in the morning while cleaning up and getting ready to check out we noticed chocolate or poop stains all over the bottom of our blanket. When we complained to the front desk, Lesley told us “and you’re just telling us about this now?”. She was very rude and unprofessional. Obviously if we had noticed the stains upon checking in we would have said something then. We didn’t get offered anything for the inconvenience either. All that was said was they’ll have housekeeping handle it. After leaving, I emailed the supervisor and she basically told me I was complaining because I had an issue with putting down the $100 deposit and I was lying. This was not the case, I'm glad I took a picture and video. We weren't even asking for our money back but we could've at least been shown some type of attitude that the hotel cared about our complaint. Instead they brushed us off, like the issue wasn't their concern. Me, my boyfriend, and our 9 month old baby slept in that bed. I'm highly disappointed because of how this situation was handled.

Exceptional Excellent Hitel
This hotel was beyond words. We loved it here, wish we could’ve picked it up and took the room home with us. Hopefully the epidemic will be over soon and we can come back and experience the hotel at it’s fullest.

Beautiful Room
I can’t lie, once I walked in the room I was amazed. The room was beautiful. The shower made the room look amazing. The bed and pillows were very comfortable. Check in and out was a breeze. I really enjoyed my stay and I’ll be booking again very very soon.
