Beautiful and Safe area, great price

I loved it! The area was beautiful, and the hotel was so welcoming. The staff was super nice and helpful. They even let us hang out after our checkout and held our bags. Our flight was at 8pm checkout was at 11am. Also Lincoln Park has an amazing artisan community. Found it when we got lost walking, talking about life. It was perfect!
