We received a gift certificate for a night at Water's Edge hotel and dinner at the Waterleaf Restaurant on the campus of College of DuPage. The hotel and restaurant are in the same building and in the same parking lot is the Mac theatre where there are always performances of some kind going on. Right behind the Mac is the... More

The desk help was amazing!! Very sweet and couldn't do enough when I checked in. Disappointed I only had 1 queen bed when I requested 2 queen beds and told no problem. Didn't use the pull out that I was told was in the room. They are never comfortable to sleep on. Shocked to not have a refrigerator in the... More

My daughter and I spent the night at your Inn, and enjoyed the atmosphere and amenities. She is looking at culinary schools in the area, and we enjoyed very much our time at Water's Edge. A great vibe, comfortable beds, and we even got to use the swimming pool with the guest pass provided. Thank you!

My only tip would be to bring back cold cereal for breakfast, and I did have to call to have the breakfast buffet replenished. Everything else was great! My husband and I always enjoy staying at the Inn.

Friendly, convenient, clean, modern and loved the on floor lounge with coffee and breakfast every morning. The location of the hotel is near several parks and just minutes from the heart of Glenn Ellyn.

This was our second stay on campus. Our son will be attending the College of DuPage in the fall. The staff have been overwhelming with kindness, suggestions, and professionalism. We were given personal tours of the entire building, they graciously took pictures for us, and did everything within their power to make our experience amazing. We decided, last minute, to... More
