For all of you tourists and those not familiar to the area- this is a transient hotel. I lived across the street from this place between 2006-2014 and there are always shady looking characters hanging out outside and going into the building. My husband and I would constantly see cop cars outside, not to mention the multiple altercations in front... More

Subway stop right in front of building, place is clean and close to Lincoln Park and River North - good location in Gold Coast. Convenient Supermarket right across street with deli counter. Lots of restaurants of all prices in walking distance. Rush street also nearby.

I'll include it here:

Just so everyone knows, this is a transient/SRO hotel. What this means is that you'll be rooming with generally unsavory. It's a safe neighborhood, but not this hotel -- its not intended for tourists. STAY AWAY.
