The hotel is in a very nice location, walking distance to everywhere, like the bean, the fountain, the shopping district. Close to the metro and metra. We took the metra to Aurora, had a buffet at Hollywood Casino, beautiful ride...

"Excellent location and staff"

The check in and check out were quick. The Millenium Park (cloud gate) was about 6 blocks from the hotel, turn left from the door and right at the first light. Then left at Michigan Ave and right on Monroe. This is also where you get the hop on hop off big bus. There are several restaurants along this route like Panera Bread. On your right out the door is seven 11 a block from the hotel where you buy water, snacks, etc. The concergie was very helpful in giving recommendations. Also, there was a safe in the room, small refrigerator and microwave oven and coffee maker. The lobby had coffee and infused water. The vending machine was on the top floor. The bedding was so comfortable that I did not want to get up early in the morning. Overall, I would recommend this hotel located in downtown Chicago.

This place is awful!! The place is in deep need of repair and updating. The first room we were sent to had such a horrible smell of mildew we requested a change.,the next was not much better this one was covered up by the smell of STRONG bleach which was clearly to cover what looked like mold stains in the shower. We tried to move hotels but everything was booked. We left early and my husband and I both hD upper respiratory infections that lasted weeks. Stay elsewhere and BlueGreen should start to make some serious changes in caring for their properties

"Nice & Comfy Downtown Boutique Hotel"
TripAdvisor user rating 4 out of 5
Reviewed August 21, 2019 NEW
Drove to Chicago for a business trip at the Philippine embassy. We arrived pretty late & thankful for the valet parking. We were immediately met at the front & was showed to our rooms. Comfy beds, quiet area w free WiFi. The hotel foyer was stacked with bookshelves filled with books in bright white covers.Easy & inviting to reach out for a book while waiting in the lobby. Perfect location & walking distance to most places& restaurants. An easy walk to the Philippine consulate office. Staff were very helpful & friendly. We were aware of the valet parking fees. Would return to this hotel the next time we have a business run in Chicago downtown area.

"Overpriced and not verywell maintained"
TripAdvisor user rating 3 out of 5
Reviewed August 18, 2019
We are Bluegreen Owners and were staying there to preview this new property. Our room was ok, but nothing out of the ordinary. One thing that we see happening on a continual basis is that Bluegreen properties are generally not maintained. Doing routine maintenance keeps a property more appealing and that is something Bluegreen does not seem to care about.
