I just finished a week long stay, here are a few things that may help others. Housing keeping was first class they did a fabulous job. The A/C in the room worked great. Great location to the airport as well as downtown. Breakfast was great, nice workout area as well. Now the not so great you can hear all the... More

This is the best hotel I have ever stayed at given my budget I spend on hotels. This hotel has a great hot breakfast. The bedroom has its own kitchen literally, they have utensils for cooking and eating along with pots and pans. You could probably say this hotel is more like renting a nice furnished studio. I stayed here... More

The rooms are nice and clean, the staff is friendly but it's loud here. All I can here in my room is the elevator running and I'm not even in the room next to it. Not sure if it is because we are on the first floor but oh my god is it annoying. I have never been in a... More

Thank you for the nice comments about the friendliness of the staff and the cleanliness of the room! We appreciate that our hard work is paying off. Please accept my sincere apologies for your stay being disrupted by the elevator noise. Upon your next visit, request a room away from the elevator to lessen the impact of the sounds. We... More

I recently stayed here for a business trip for just one evening. Check-in was quick and courteous and I was given a bottle of water and a granola bar for being a part of their loyalty program. My room was on the first floor, away from the elevators, but facing the corporate park and the highway. The noise was not... More

We stayed here while visiting Lake Forest College and it was a very pleasant hotel. Nice front desk staff and a good breakfast in the morning. Convenient to travel over to Lake Forest College and they offer a discounted rate if visiting the school. Downside...the noise from the highway can be very loud in your room.

The Residence Inn is a big fan of Lake Forest College and all their visitors! I am happy that you enjoyed the breakfast and the staff! If we are unable to provide a room away from the highway, be sure to ask for earplugs or a white noise machine to drown out the noise! Although convenient for travel, not many... More

We stayed when my son played in a local tennis tournament. The rooms were clean and well-appointed. Pool area also clean, and a decent size. Pool table a nice touch. Sport court an extra form of entertainment if you have an athletic child along. We did not use the outside grill area, but it certainly looked good. Breakfast was generic... More

Windows are so cheap it sounds like you are standing outside right next to the trucks whizzing by at 70+ mph. Kept me up all night. I could barely hear the TV at a normal level. Also there was some constant cyclical droning all night as well. Am guessing it was heating units but no idea. Would never stay here... More

Close location to the interstate and CDW Capital One offices in the Mettawa area. No dining within walking distance, but quite a variety within a 10 mile radius and easy to get to. Located just off the interstate and Townline Road
