Site Map

Please enjoy our unconventional, descriptive sitemap:

We are a family-run Chicago Midway Airport hotel, with three generations in the hotel business.  What you’ll find is that we do things different because of this.  Unlike new hoteliers who are always watching their financial reports to determine their success, we have developed a different way to track successs- guest satisfaction.  That is why our humble hotel is currently ranked #18 of 166 hotels in Chicago, and the winner awards for Excellence and Value.  Our Chicago hotel guest reviews are stellar.

We don’t offer the bling of some of the downtown properties with their piano bars and spas, but we do offer incomparable value.  Our staff is professional and friendly, and they truly aim to please.  Our Chicago hotel rooms are well-maintained and clean.  We take cleaning and maintenance very seriously, and thus you will feel the difference during your stay.

We are located near Midway Airport- just 1.8 miles away.  That is why we are well-known as a Midway Hotel.   The other Midway hotels are actually not in Chicago- they are in Bedford Park.  They don’t always tell you this, and they actually stretch the truth on their websites often to look as if they were in Chicago, but they are not.  And, it does make a difference.  Our guests can walk a block and be on the CTA elevated train that connects to the entire city.  The other hotels require that the guests catch the shuttle to get the station, which can take 40 minutes at times, depending upon where they are in their cycles.  We are also happy to drop you off at our local station or pick you up, yet it takes just a minute or two to happen.  Also, our station is closer to downtown, our drive downtown is also less, and our neighborhood is much more interesting and dynamic.   Walk out from our hotel in either direction and you will find an interesting ethnically mixed neighborhood with interesting restaurants and shops.  We are walking distance to well-known chain restaurants and mom-and-pops.  We really enjoy our unique neighborhood, and strongly encourage our guests to explore it too.

We are well-know as the on-budget McCormick Place Hotel.  With all of our great business services, we are the reliable choice for businesses focused on their ROI while still getting a great night’s sleep.   McCormick Place is a short ride to our hotel, and one can even avoid taking the highway during the hours with high traffic volume.

We don’t think of ourselves as a Chicago budget hotel, rather we are a hotel for the budget conscious traveler.  We are proud of the quality of our room and furnishings, as we have invested much into keep our property fresh and clean.  We take extra care to provide you with higher quality mattresses, and we go above and beyond the norm when it comes to cleaning.  We love clean, and know you will appreciate that.

Our green efforts have been developing over the years.  Now we proudly stand out as a green Chicago hotel because of our deeply developed systems.  Have you recently stayed at a property with all of those little plastic bottles for soaps and shampoos?  We have, and it simply feels wrong to use a small amount of shampoo and toss the rest along with the plastic bottle.  It is time for the world to start taking responsibility for our footprint, and we have taken the initative to provide bulk dispensers for our amenities.  Read more about it on our green page.

We have much more to share with you, but until we have the chance to add it, we’d like to thank a couple of interior design firms that we admire:  Niche Interiors, who are Green San Francisco Interior Designers, are an inspiration to us.  We are also inspired by the Philadelphia Interior designer Donna Hoffman. You all inspire us.  We have gratitude for our friends at Chicago dialysis center Nephron at the Swedish Covenant Hospital, who do superb work.  Finally, if you are interested in SEO services we highly recommend our SEO firm ClientExpander.com
