"I’m shocked. It’s probably too late to get another hotel, but at the same time this is the safest hotel in Chicago tonight," said Terri Green, who was staying at the hotel.
Hotel guests told FOX 32 they were concerned to find police and first responders in front of the property and were not notified as to what had happened.
The hotel has yet to comment on this incident.
