"Hits a home run" -- Gayot

"It was quiet, comfortable and convenient all complimented by a courteous and helpful staff. From the point we arrived the valet let the front desk know we were there, they had everything called up to check us in. The rooms were impeccably clean and put together with some great gadgets and modern use of lighting."

Map & Directions

The most economical option from both Chicago O'Hare and Midway airports is the El train. Travel time to the downtown area 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).

We had dinner and breakfast at Miss Ricky's at the hotel - great service, fun environment and good people. We had targeted a few other restaurants during our stay, but decided to go to dinner there again the second night because they treated us so well. There was a complimentary shuttle at the hotel, a Tesla - we used it to get to our business appointment in the morning. Not only did it save us the cab fare but it was a fun ride.

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.
