"Historic hotel - stay marred by strike and other issues"
TripAdvisor user rating 3 out of 5
Reviewed September 18, 2018 NEW
Nice rooms, although not big. Lighting and mirrors not placed well for make up, etc. Stayed during strike so there were expected laps in service. Service recovery after I asked about missing items not acceptable.

Would not stay here again. Staff was very mediocre and no early or even mid day checkins. Noise was awful as there was a chicago hotel strike going on and right below my window, starting at 5 am. very little attention to needs.

"Decent Hotel But No Accountability"
TripAdvisor user rating 1 out of 5
Reviewed September 17, 2018 NEW
We booked this hotel due to its location for our 15th anniversary. The location was great. There were strikes going on at the hotel, so we forgave the cleanliness of the bathroom. We understand it is difficult when dealing with staffing. What we couldn't forgive was my wife's iPad being stolen from the room and the hotel doing absolutely nothing to address our concerns. We noticed the iPad being missing the last morning of our stay. We did not spend much time at all in the hotel because we were doing a lot of events in the city, so it is unfortunate we didn't know sooner. But when we realized, we went straight to the front desk. When we got there, two other guests were complaining about missing items. At this point, the manager told us that in her 13 years nothing had ever been taken from a room. And then she offered to show us the cleaning log to show that nothing had been turned in. So if someone says something was taken, but the cleaning doesn't report it, then nothing has been taken. My wife and I completely take responsibility that we should have maybe put the iPad in the safe, but for the manager to basically blow off the conversation about an expensive item just floored my wife and I. I usually side with the service side of the equation because I know they have a thankless job, but I just can't think of anything redeeming to say about how the hotel managed this.

"Overrated, Dirty, Not recommended!!"
TripAdvisor user rating 1 out of 5
Reviewed September 17, 2018 NEW
The hotel is overrated, the service was terrible but the wost part was the cleanliness of the room, the last day at 6 in the afternoon the room was not cleaned, so we went to the front desk and asked them to send someone to make the room. We came back at 10:00pm, and the room was not cleaned. The excuse of the front desk was that because of a stike the employees were having, they had no personell to make rooms. We found dirty sheets, dirty rug, and a very bad temper in the front desk. The hitel is well located, but that is about it!!

"Over priced with no room cleaning"
TripAdvisor user rating 2 out of 5
Reviewed September 13, 2018 NEW
There was a hotel workers strike going on when we stayed here. We had to cross a noisy picket line to get in to the hotel. If we hadn’t already paid for the room well In advance we would not have crossed the line. You would think that what they are charging for rooms they could easily afford to provide health insurance for a full year and pay a fair wage. We paid over 400 bucks a night for a tiny old room with virtually no service. Because of the strike they just provided very rudimentary cleaning mainly just emptying waste baskets a providing clean towels. Oh yeah they did place a note in our room saying “thanks for your patience “ which was nice but a better thanks would have been a rebate on the ridiculous price they were charging without any reduction to make up for the reduction in service. We tried breakfast once in the hotel restaurant. They had no menu service just a very stripped down buffet. Everything in it was ice cold. On the plus side this hotel is in a good location. We were able to walk to every place we wanted to go to.
