I think I was maybe expecting a little bit better since Chicagoland seems to be a more competitive hotel market, plus seeing the size of the building itself made me think that the hotel might be a little nicer. There have been a lot of complaints about the dated decor, which are valid for the common areas, but the room I had on the 3rd floor appeared to have been renovated. My wife and kids said the pool was freezing cold in October, which seemed to be odd, and there were only two luggage carts in the entire hotel, which made bringing in our luggage difficult when they were both in use. On the other hand, the bed was great, and I probably had the best night's sleep of any non-resort hotel where I've ever stayed. Besides the pool, there wasn't a whole lot for our kids to do besides run up and down the hallways downstairs. It looks like a hotel in transition, but they're not quite there yet.
