This 357-room hotel two blocks from the Magnificent Mile has big (if generic) rooms for the price, plus an attractive (albeit small) indoor pool area and a bright, well-equipped fitness center. Mini-fridges and microwaves make it easy to save money on food, and the hotel offers solid freebies — free Wi-Fi and free afternoon cookies. But parking fees are steep, and room service is only available for dinner.
