It seems next to impossible to find an affordable hotel in a good neighborhood within the city limits. We are happy to offer an answer for guests like yourself so you can experience Chicago without breaking the bank for a hotel room that you will likely only sleep in. It is true that we are a very straight-forward property without the extra frills of a modern look, but we take pride in keeping our property clean. Also, our beds, pillows and linens are new and comfortable. The Lake Shore outdoor pool is open from June 1 until Labor Day weather permitting. Children under 17 years of age must be accompanied by an adult. Pool hours are from 9:00a.m. until 10:00p.m. No life guards are on duty and the pool is for registered guests only. We are located in the upper-middle class neighborhood of Hyde Park within the city limits. Hyde Park is best known as the future site of the forthcoming Obama Presidential Library and home to the University of Chicago’s campus. We are a short train ride away from the Chicago Loop and a 10-minute ride away from Soldier Field. In addition, we offer free Shuttle Service to many nearby attractions and Free Parking onsite. The parking alone can save you up to $50 / night! Sure, we could renovate but then we’d be just like every other hipster hotel. We’d rather you spent your money doing all of the great things our city has to offer!
