Nicer than Regents, IMO. The 1brms are awesome, with a really large kitchen. In the 2brms I guess they figure you want more of a living room but as a result the kitchen is kinda tight. I didn't live there (or Regents) but I definitely preferred living in a smaller building than the huge Regents towers.
I guess the downsides for Algonquin are the lack of central a/c and the huge flock of crows that lived on the trees outside the building all last year.
Maybe check out Del Prado too, that is a new building just coming on line. Personally, I would recommend looking outside Hyde Park as well. HP was great for 1L year, but hopefully as a 2L you are going to have a little less stress and will want more opportunities to enjoy the city.
As of right now, I'm thinking about living in HP just because my girlfriend already lives in River North. I want something very close to the school for during the week and then thurs-sun, live up in RN. I'm even giving consideration to the graduate housing on 60th street haha.
