Map & Directions

The most economical option from both Chicago O'Hare and Midway airports is the El train. Travel time to the city centre is 40-45 minutes from O'Hare and 20-25 minutes from Midway. Taxis can be a bit quicker (unless it is rush hour, when a ride from O'Hare could take up to 90 minutes).

Staff very friendly. Floors do have dog rooms. If allergic to dogs be sure to request non dog room.

The rooms are beautiful and thoughtfully appointed. Being modern and technology mindful was refreshing. The showers are heavenly, you won't do a quick five minutes. The elevators have this incredible scent to them and I appreciate that you must have a key to operate them. Made me feel safer psychologically. There's quirky art around that makes this not your normal old place to stay. The staff is professional and friendly.

Location was great. The rooms were clean, spacious bathroom/vanity area. Very comfy beds. Both bars had great cocktails. The Commons had a nice energy for all ages. The rooftop is a bit more for the 25 - 40 year old group, but also had a nice vibe.

If you're traveling within 2 miles, get a ride in their red Tesla.

The hotel is brand-new and spotless - love that feeling. Staff is casually efficient and super friendly. A hip experience for those seeking that vibe, not so much for a business traveler, as my room was not equipped with desks, good task lighting or a bank of plugs to power your devices.
