The elevators were slow & no step access from floor to floor. Expensive to park valet and room was small, especially bathroom, not worth the price. Tended to cater to large groups of people.
The area was pretty. Off the main strip.

the breakfast and the lack of details in the room

Great location, near lakeshore walks & shopping & restaurants. Loved the bikes & will always look for hotel with them in future.

Fact that there is no wifi . It's only 1 mbg. And not even bottle of water in the room. Like I said even cheapest motel has free wifi and bottle of water when you check in the room. It's pretty though. I give props to the location.

no shower gel, no tea /coffee in the room
Location, great room space, Food at the Pump Is great, easy to access to major places and transport, great restaurant "Chicago Q" close by

The wifi wasn't all that great. And the bathroom sink and tub keeps getting clogged up.

The rooms are a bit too white and empty. I like minimalism but not to the extent that it becomes impersonal
The ambiance of the hotel lobby, bar and restaurant area. Feels like a place for locals and tourists, and so convenient to live in the same building

The carpet in the library room was pretty spotty...made the place look less presentable for guests

The hotel's valet parking is $56 a day. For us that was nearly half of what we paid for the room itself. Hotel staff, including the manager, were blasé (read unsympathetic) about it when I complained and claim it's out of their hands. Their reaction indicates they simply don't care about the overall stay experience, just as long as you pay up. My wife was quite angry as she began to realize how much parking was and ho we could have spent that money on other things in the city.
Great location for shopping and restaurants. The Pump Room is very sceny, but fun.

I loved the hotel, but the best part about it was the rooms. I felt as though I belonged with the staff always available and always available to assist. Pump room is a memorable place to eat and the lounge is there for a relaxing cocktail.

Parking is extremely expensive.
Definitely worth the money. And the restaurant is great!

Excessive price for Valet parking
Cleanliness and comfort exceeded expectations

every single staff member was very professional, courteous and attentive to my needs. I almost don't want to share how fabulous it was so I can keep it to myself. It was close to downtown restaurants and bars, the metro, bus lines, cabs were always near by as well.. The food was amazing too, I ordered room service a couple of times and was pleasantly surprised. It has an old world charm with a modern twist. The bed was really comfy too and the shower was built for a tall person being 5'10 I didn't have to duck my head. I would say this hotel is great for singles or couples probably not so much families.. the area for me felt more geared for the night life.

The free wi-fi was slow, and the room by the elevator was a little noisy. Also I got pretty confused by the showers (different rooms had ones that worked differently)
The staff and the charisma of the building make this place. I got upgraded on the first night to a suite, though changed back to a king room given the suite was in front of an elevator. I'd definitely come back again. The rooms are really well designed as well. I stay in hotels a lot for business so here was definitely a breathe of fresh air.

Should be in a seperate category....the moment you walk in you feel welcome & @home.....spacious, comfy rooms with nice design.....dinner @ the Pumproom simply amazing. Staff really makes an effort to make your stay memorable.....this is how business becomes pleasure!

Beds good be more comfortable
The pump room
January 20, 2015
No in room coffee
January 18, 2015
I could't get the wi-fi to work, the bed is not super comfortable (on the harder side, which some people might prefer--just not me). The walls are paper thin and I couldn't hear everything from next door. My neighbors had sex several times throughout the night and I heard all of it. It was very unpleasant.
I loved the building itself and the decor. The staff was amazing and so was the food. My room was small and older but decorated nicely and suited my purposes.

The Pump Room. There was hair in my food and the most the manager did was pay for two drinks, basically because I didn't show enough anger. Didn't even show his face, just had the waitress relay the message. Incredibly unprofessional.
The room and guest services were great. Clean room.
