I usually don't stay anywhere near Michigan Avenue when visiting Chicago, but the price was right and I needed to be as nearas possible to the Merchandise Mart. I was very pleasantly surprised by this chain-owned hotel's service, cleanliness and downright coolness (the room all had high speed . The rooms were small but very nicely done and very clean. The staff was efficient and helpful, recommending unique restaurants in the area that suit me perfectly. And the location (right on the red line El) got you to any point in the city easily. I recommend this hotel highly.
Pros: hotel comfort/clean, staff, very hip details
