For a dowtown hotel, the prices are reasonalbe. The location is great too - close to shopping, theatre and restaurants. Although the rooms are very small, the charming decor makes up for the size. The style is very hip and funky and the staff is friendly and attentive. Great hotel for the value.
PROS: Hip boutique hotel
CONS: Small rooms.
There is a huge selection of stylish shoes at DSW. It does have a warehouse feel to it, but the prices are great so it's worth a visit. Howver, there isn't an ample selection of sizes. I find that my size ( size 10 ) is very frequently out of stock.
PROS: Huge Selection, Very affordable
CONS: Not enough size selection
The best thing about Roy's is that it is affordable - which is hard to find in the city! The quality is okay and the selection really large. The staff is knowledgeable and willing to help in the selection of furniture. Delivery does take some time though. It's hidden in the middle of Lincoln Park and they do not advertise so it really is neat find.
PROS: Affordable, Large Selection
CONS: Long delivery time
I was satisfied with the hair cut and services that I received at Salon 1800. The only issue is that it is really crowded and loud. It wasn't a relaxing experience, there was a lot going on around me and it got really hot inside. The stylist was extremely friendly and gave me great tips on how to style my hair.
PROS: Good service and location
CONS: Too loud.
This small boutique has fabulous accessories - which is the main reason I visit. The clothes are unique but some of the clothes have really unusual patterns. The feel of the boutique is bohemian and the staff is always friendly and willing to help.
PROS: Great jewelry, good parking
This hip and trendy new bar in was average is supposed to be modeled after a motel lounge bar. I didn't get that feel. It's sparsely decorated and the retro feel was hard to pick up on. The music was too randomly mixed and although we have a few good drinks there, I wouldn't make it a regular destination.
PROS: Good drinks
CONS: Small Bar, lousy music
The food at Bob Chin's is a no-frills seafood joint with delicious fish flown in fresh everyday. It's a huge restaurant and we've never waited long to get a table since it's so big. Every table gets buttery garlic rolls which are hard to resist. The king crab legs are always great along with the daily selectin of fish. Even the desserts are delicious - especially the Hawaiian cake.
PROS: Fresh fish
Dania has a great selection of furniture for home and office. It's mostly classic styles that are modern, but not overly so. The prices are not cheap, but are very reasonable for the quality of the furniture. They do have standard shipping and the associates were more that willing to help.
PROS: Modern styles of furniture
This is the best coffee in the city. The coffee gives Starbucks some serious competition. This local coffee shop is always busy and has a casual atmosphere inside that is not trendy like other shops that have popped up. They staff is always upbeat and friendly and they offer a large selection of roasts to purchase. The outdoor seating is a great place to relax in the summer and take in the busy surroundings.
This place has a great selection of handbags and accessories for women. They also carry bags and wallets for men too. The handbags are mostly of a classic but very stylish mix. They're priced reasonably so it won't break your bank to look stylish. And the staff is always friendly and helpful.
