Nice simple hotel room located near the Chicago River. Easy access to all local attractions.
Breakfast foods disappeared quickly. Either they ran out or were only placed out for a very limited amount of time.

the location is perfect, facing the rive and TRUMP towel directly
The room provides no indoor water service (no drinking water or pot to boil water)

Though the space was small, I had everything I needed at my fingertips. The bar and restaurant on the first floor is a huge perk, too!
The staff was either SUPER friendly, or totally not friendly. There were definitely more great staff members than bad ones... but the bad ones did kinda ruin things a bit.

Large rooms and location!

Location;second floor complimentary snacks and beverages
They need to put safes in the rooms. I've stayed at numerous 3 and 4 star hotels in Chicago and the suburbs. All have safes including ones that didn't used to have them. Safe deposit boxes are not convenient nor large enough for laptops. It's 2018.

The location was perfect for our trip. Close to the theater and there were many close, good restaurants.
Elevators were slow to arrive and often full. Staff got 4/10 based on 1 person. I hate to rate the rest of the staff low (almost everyone else was great) but one woman on the phone (before we arrived) was just awful. And our tv was broken the whole time.

the room was not as clean as I would have liked. there were visible hairs on pillow and room was rather dusty. But nothing to major.

It was in a great location for exploring Chicago and close to where I was attending a conference.
I found two spiders one in the bathroom the other on the bed. The air conditioner did not work, I would set it to cool and it would heat the room. There is not check in counter with actually people, Just self service computers. Not a people centered hotel
