Hmmmm..... not too good
Very old. We had asked for a coffee pot and coffee and the lady at the front desk said she would get it up there and we never got it. We asked twice. The plugs in the room had burn marks on them. Everything was clean and the beds were very comfortable. Our neighbors smoked pot the entire stay so I guess we slept well! Our doors had the fire escape above them so I’m glad there was not a fire and everyone would run to our room. There was also a very odd smell in our room the whole time.

Great Location
Loved the location and view. Older hotel but the location made that very easy to overlook. We had a lake view and we were able to lay in bed and watch the fireworks at Navy Pier.

The only service was from the front desk, very attentive service. The rooms are not properly maintained and not properly cleaned.
