I really liked the accommodating staff. I also enjoyed how the hotel is connected to Beatrix, restaurant and bar. The views from the rooms are amazing too, and the room itself is very clean.

Very nice hotel. The staff was very friendly, rooms were clean and facilities were very clean. The location was within a short walking distance to most places and the subway was near. I would recommend this hotel to anyone. Jose was very helpful, friendly and is great at marketing the hotel.

Nice hotel in River North

This hotel is the nicest hotel I’ve been in. It’s very modern and the staff is so kind. The room is very nice and ours had two windows with the perfect view of the city. Definitely will stay here again!
