  • Warm, Inviting and Affordable – A Review

    Posted on December 23rd, 2015 gjordan No comments

    We were thrilled to have travel, lifestyle and fashion blogger Melina Alt at our hotel recently. To our excitement, she had some fabulous things to say about her stay with us in her review.

    But first, take a look at her beautiful photos below:













    Melina reflects on the warm and inviting atmosphere as soon as she walked in our doors: “We directly felt like home as we entered the doorhall and a warm fire crackled in the fireplace.”

    Melina was thrilled about our excellent and convenient location near the Magnificent Mile and in Chicago’s River North neighborhood. She also enjoyed the variety of products offered in the bathroom, the beautiful skyline views from her room, and the affordability of the hotel without sacrificing style and high quality.

    If you’re interested in reading more, check out the rest of her review here. Maybe she’ll convince you to book your stay with us.

    Happy Holidays!

    Spending just 18 hours in the city of Chicago, Jeanne took on some of Chicago’s ultimate tourist spots: visiting The Bean (located in Millennium Park), the iconic Art Institute, Willis Tower’s Skydeck and of course, trying deep dish pizza. Take a look at her photos below:
