This training center has small, but functional rooms with comfortable beds. I've been here four times and I think it is an excellent facility. The buffet options are delicious and well marked to make them vegetarian friendly. The grounds are beautiful with lots of flowers and bushes. It has a large and well equipped fitness center, which is not very... More

Food is included, and there is plenty. Three buffets you choose from, or you choose all. Saying the rooms are small is an understatement. Rooms have a twin bed, shower, toilet, TV and that's it. If stand in the middle of the room you can almost touch two walls.

Location is a little in the middle of no where and as said in many of the previous reviews the rooms are small. Expect this room to be smaller then any hotel room you have ever stayed in. However, it is just big enough so it has everything you need (shower, bed, tv, desk, free toiletries, etc.). However, the staff... More

Just arrived today for 3 day training class at Q center. I read all the reviews regarding small rooms, etc... As a road warrior, it will definitely be smaller than anywhere you've stayed before (even in small rooms of NYC). Here's my take for what it's worth. Yes, the initial shock is jarring about it being smaller than cruise ship... More

What I love about this place is that you have your own rooms and don't have to share with other employees when have training from firm. Management goes out of their way to help. Got there early and they checked me in w/o hesitation.

I had a great two night stay for training program by my employer. The rooms were small but comfortable and adequate. The food was good with many options. I had a chance to check out a bike and ride the trails which was nice. If you go to the Q Center straight to and from the airport, like I did,... More

I stayed at the Q Center for training with my company, I would not recommend it. The rooms were door style small, the bed was a twin and very uncomfortable. The very worse was I had hung the "Privacy Please" door hanger for them not to come into my room. Of course I had a lot of stuff in my... More

Spent a few days at the Q-Center in St. Charles for some business training. This is a training center. Its purpose seems to be to provide a space to bring together large groups for training. It does that adequately. I thought a few tips might make someone's stay a little easier. 1) The rooms are crazy small. Twin beds. Really!... More

I recently stayed at the Q Center in St. Charles for a work training session that I was leading. The Q Center is the former Arthur Andersen worldwide training center and before that a women's college. It is a 45 minute drive from O'Hare airport in the countryside. The grounds are immaculate and well manicured. The buildings are all well... More
