By simply looking at this hotel, it doesn't appear to have anything really special about it, but considering everything that's included, I'd definitely say it's one of the best offers in the city.
First of all, you're right in the heart of River North, the city's foodie heaven and nightlife hot spot. It's not as posh as some of the nicer hotels in the area, but with everything there is to do, you don't need to spend a lot of time in your room!
Second of all, parking is included, which is a lot harder to come by in the heart of the city, especially in a hotel rather than motel setting. There's also an indoor pool so you can always enjoy a swim even when the weather is fluctuating back and forth like crazy.
Lastly, the staff is great! Nikita was particularly awesome and helpful. Although I didn't get the chance to try it out, she recommended grabbing dinner at the hotel's restaurant Pizzeria Ora.Recommended for:

There are a lot of great restaurants around this hotel, little known Chicago secrets, like Rainforest Café, and Hard Rock Café, and McDonald’s (it’s a rock and roll McDonald’s). Pizzaria Ora is attached, so you can get some Italian while you’re sitting poolside and having a cigarette on the sundeck, which is handicap accessible, in the midst of the gorgeous Chicago skyline. There are tons of places worth walking to and stumbling back from, like the aforementioned, but also Blues Chicago, which is a little touristy, but always a good time if you’re into very talented musicians playing a kind of music that the city is known for. They also have free guest parking, which is a huge bonus, and becomes rare the closer you get to the magnificent mile.
