"Lack customer service skills."
Overall Score3.0/ 5
The front desk staff lacks customer service no offer to help see you looking around for Parking did not really understand how to access parking. I had balloons the girl at the desk assumed I was throwing a party ask to me to sign a no party policy with an attitude. I say $400 was worth it not again.

"Check in clerk was NOT helpful."
Overall Score4.0/ 5
The facility was just what we needed. A place to stay before surgery. However, the clerk that greeted us was not helpful at all and added to a stressful situation due to her clipped answers and extremely condescending attitude. Since the room was pre paid, we were stuck. Since your location boasts being the closest to Univ of Chicago medical center, perhaps your front line personnel could be trained in attempting to help the customer and be welcoming instead of answering questions in a rude, dismissive way. However, the room was fine, clean, exactly what we needed.
