Best Western University Plaza

Hotel | "Best Werstern University Plaza"

A very lovely hotel, five minutes from the train to the city center. To the loop, it is about 30 minutes per train. About a 10-minute walk to Lake Michigan and restaurants and little shops are nearby. The post is within 10-minutes' walk as well.
