The hotel has a lot of great areas for collaboration (lots of lobby seating, lots of restaurant/bar space). The rooms were clean, modern and far above par. They have a great gym and jacuzzi available as well. The beds have an adjustable firmness also which is a nice added touch. Breakfast was good but overpriced ($13 for a cold buffet,... More

I travel for business frequently and Hilton Garden Inn is always a winner. Breakfast is not fancy but good. Location is outstanding if you're visiting in the north part of Chicago. The staff is very friendly and helpful which adds to the excellent experience while traveling.

I stayed for one night. Friendly and attentive staff made this mundane hotel very nice indeed. Some examples: At check in, front desk patiently assigned alternate rooms -- first room was on freeway side and very noisy. Second room the a/c didn't work. Third room was good. Front desk staff also cheerfully recommended a great running trail. Maintance staff was... More

The front desk was so very helpful even at the late hour we arrived. I had called ahead to let them know I would be later than expected to check in and they were very accommodating! Can't say enough about the hotel and staff that I dealt with. Will be back!

I specifically signed up for Trip Advisor so I could write this review. I stayed here August 14 - 18 for a wedding. The hotel was recently renovated and the lobby was fabulous. It really made you want to go down and hang out instead of staying in your room. Customer Service by all staff members was excellent. I first... More

Very convenient hotel from the expressway. Good food in the restaurant located in the hotel lobby. I thought it was nice that the breakfast was buffet style. Nice clean updated rooms, as always with Hilton. This will be my hotel of choice from now on.

Good value. Clean and friendly. Staff was wonderful. They did everything to make our 4 days a real pleasure. Breakfast left a lot to desire. You are better off going into Lake Forest and eating in one of the local restaurants.
