Budget prices pair with stylish rooms in this bright and cheery hotel.
This member of the Indigo collection brings stylish, inexpensive chain lodging to the Windy City. Indigo is owned by InterContinental Hotels Group, which also oversees Holiday Inn and Crowne Plaza. It is the group's attempt to infuse budget-friendly, business lodgings with a fresh new look. The tone here is beach house chic, beginning in the lobby with its splashes of color and white Adirondack chairs. The distinctive color scheme, a jaunty combination of blue, green and white, is carried into the 165 guest rooms and two suites. Along with basics such as coffee makers and cable TV, you'll find high-speed Internet access, CD players, free morning newspapers, voice mail and work desks. On-site facilities cover a range of needs and include a fitness center, a 672-square-foot meeting room, The Golden Bean restaurant and Phi lounge, which overlooks the neighborhood and serves tapas in the evenings.
