We decided to change hotels once we realized we were too far out of downtown to easily get where we wanted to be so we called around and chose to stay here. We booked the room before 11 via phone and showed up within an our for check-in. Although the only room available at that time was near the train, they offered to hold our bags and put us in a different room later in the day; we left our bags and headed out . Upon returning after a long and busy day my boyfriend went to sleep and I wanted to take a walk. I was directed to several places along the walk to Wrigley Field through Wrigleyville and was emersed in the nightlife. We were just on the edge of Lakeview and Wrigleyville and what a great place to be. I walked alone and never thought twice about it. The gentleman at the hotel desk gave me great recommnedations, but I was too tired to do many of them, so i ate and returned to the room. Our suite had a living room area and a nice sized bedroom; both rooms had ceiling fans and a/c. The room was very quite despite being near the train after all, and the bathroom was renovated and had a cool glass shower window. The showerr amenities were the best I have ever had and although I am not a collector of hotel amenities, I made and exception for these. We were so comfortable and the staff was so wonderful we felt like they knew us by name in only two days. i highly recommend this hotel due to it's wonderful staff, charming atmosphere and excellent location. it's still a few miles from downtown but well worth it!

Hotel staff was extremely professional, friendly and personable. Russell, Manager of the Hotel and Eric, front desk clerk, went out of their way to make my stay at this hotel enjoyable and memorable. I found the room to be clean, comfortable and roomy. Housekeeping staff also wonderful! Location of this hotel is right off of the RED line El stop and also just several blocks away from Lake Michigan! Tons of Restaurants are also located in this Lakeview/Wrigleyville/Lincoln Park location. The Hotel is located literally where all 3 neighborhoods come together. I stayed for one week total. I found this Hotel to be extremely safe. I would reccomend this Hotel to my family and friends. Thank you Russell and Eric for making my 35th Birthday memorable and worry free! I will definitely not forget your kindness! I will see you on my next trip back to Chicago!

A few issues with the hotel, when we checked in the guy behind the desk acted as though we were a bother to him. Wifi was horrible when it worked which was seldom. Safety is always an issue now, our room key cards stopped working on the first day so on our way back down to the lobby we mentioned this to the housekeeper who used her card to give us access to our rooms the problem with that was she had never seen us before, we could have been anybody.

This hotel must be a well kept secret. Access to the ""El"" maybe 30 yards away as well as to Wrigley Field and a great neighborhood within walking distance make it a great place to stay. We found the staff to be most helpful and the accomodations while small, quite adequate and clean. We'll stay there again.
Great location (2 steps from the el, halstead and near lincoln park), room and staff. parking was $22/day, the room was clean and quiet - even though on the second ...
Great location (2 steps from the El, Halstead and near Lincoln Park), room and staff. Parking was $22/day, the room was clean and quiet - even though on the second floor front near the El. Try Jack?s restaurant, Clarks and the Sweedish one next door, skip Chen?s on Clark street. For a last minute reservation, it was priced appropriately.
