Terrible experience. Will never stay there again or recommend. Elbows hit the wall in bed and in shower. INCREDIBLY loud and rude guests. Liquor bottles everywhere in hallway when we left. Had to call front desk and security. Mgmt did nothing.

Close to other activities
It was like camping. The bed was literally on the floor. There was no other seating available in the room other than the bed. The door would not shut properly. We had to shove it shut each time to completely close it. Did not like the club atmosphere

Location is amazing.
Rooms are very small, with no view.

This is a Hostel not a Hotel. Travelers expect the norm from any hotel room regardless of start level such as TV, desk, and reasonable space to manuever. Putting poeple in a room with bunkbeds, no tv, no desk, no couch other than a small bench. Bait & Swi
Everything. It should not be advertised as a hotel and/or you should make it blatently obvious what you're buying becasue its drastically different than a normal hotel room regardless of star level

I liked nothing about this property
They put me in a room that had only bunk beds. Not good at all.

very cool vibe and decor - the hotel bar is pretty sweet. The location is perfect for walking everywhere and accessing a lot. Room was small but perfect for one person on a short trip that needed a place to sleep. Also - love the snacks in the room!
Parking could be a little better (with validations for next door garage?) for those that do not want to do valet parking. And the workers on the scaffold outside my room at 7am wasn't very cool but I understand improvements must happen..

Friendly staff and great drinks
The rooms are too cold. Barley retains heat. We had the heater up at 82 all night and we were freezing cold.

The hotel was a great location for where we needed to go in River North. It was about 2 or 3 blocks away from everything so we just walked where we needed to go. The other thing I liked was the cleanliness of the hotel.
The decor is a bit weird and the room was small. It reminded us of an European hotel.

Only one elevator working so could not get out in the morning the elevator was full three times took nearly 30 minutes to get downstairs with my luggage.

Very convenient location - Staff kind enough to hold your luggage upto 24hrs after your stay - Rooms were good

The staff were very nice
The two thirds of a stale baguette in my room paired with a used make up removal pad. In some quarters this might constitute an avant garde gesture, but sadly this arrangement is derivative.
