"The hotel room was clean, modern, and nicely decorated, and the staff was accommodating. I asked for a coffee maker, and it was delivered within minutes. The cleaning products had a distinctive scent, but you can ask for a room on the hypoallergenic floor.2019-10-14"
"Our city view room was clean, and the shower worked well. They have an allergy-sensitive floor (19th) if you're sensitive to cleaning products or down pillows. The elevators were quick for a large hotel, and the hotel staff was really friendly. It was an easy walk to the Magnificent Mile.2019-10-10"

"Great hotel stay. We were surprised by the $90 deposit for incidentals, though it was refunded at checkout. Stay here.2019-01-15"
"Convenient location with great city and lake views. The hotel was competitively priced. Unfortunately, we experienced long check-in lines, long breakfast lines, misplaced luggage, and elevators with minds of their own.2015-08-06"
"The hotel was excellent. The room was spacious, and everything was clean. The staff was welcoming and friendly.2021-09-12"
"Great location; about a 15-minute walk to the "L" train. Short walk to the water taxis and some bus lines. The room was nice, but I was disappointed that this hotel only has 14 floors of the building, and all the higher floors are a different hotel. We were hoping for a view of the lake and river.2017-09-07"
"The hotel was off the main thoroughfare, but there were good restaurants within walking distance, and taxis were readily available. Handsome lobby and room, and the bathroom was unusually spacious. I had a glimpse of the lake, the Chicago River, and the Ferris wheel at Navy Pier from my room.2017-05-18"

How Do We Define Motel?
To us, motels are smaller lodgings that have rooms you can enter directly from the parking area.
At hotels, on the other hand, you can enter your room only through a hall inside the building.
Hotel Booking Tips
Beware of non-refundable reservations that could cost you a lot of money if you change or cancel them. +Non-refundable reservations are a gamble that will usually save you less than $10. If you make a $90 non-refundable reservation instead of a $100 refundable booking, you are betting $90 to win $10. Would you do that in Las Vegas? -
Don't assume you can cancel a non-refundable reservation without penalty if you notify the hotel weeks or even months in advance. +Often you cannot because some hotels' profit strategy is to get paid more than once for the same room for the same night. -
Always read cancellation policies carefully before you make a reservation. + When is the latest date and time you can cancel without penalty? - More >
When you make a reservation, you will receive a confirmation email. Take a copy with you to the hotel.
The earlier in the afternoon you check into a hotel, the more likely you will get a room or suite that matches your preferences.
