We booked this hotel using Priceline and were skeptical at first because of the location. We visited Chicago on Amtrak and found out that hotel was 2 blocks from the Union station. We had easy access to the Blue Line subway, which was right behind the hotel. The service was very friendly. We were in walking distance of good restaurants, including Lou Mitchell's. Aurelio's Restaraunt in the hotel was inexpensive and tasty. I would stay at this hotel again, especially if going back by train.
Pros: Great Service, Subway nearby, Not Crowded
Cons: Away from Mag Mile, Too few TV channels, small pool
