This is a Trusted Review. Why?

People are very friendly and ready to help. Because I stayed there on Christmas Eve, there are only 4 people in a 8 Bed room! Thus it was quiet and clean. What's more, the breakfast is free. Since it is located in the downtown of Chicago, one can even walk to many places of interests in this great city, such as Millennium Park and Sears Tower.
In a nutshell, it worths that money.
