“Travel Oasis”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 5, 2013

This is an oasis in an age of relative indifference to the traveler. Whether navigating a complicated connection with Chicago as a hub, or as a business meeting destination, this hotel serves well. The hotel is directly adjacent to the airport terminal, and may be accessed by walking acoss the street from the terminal, or via underground tunnels that run below the airport for interconnecting the several terminal buildings.

The hotel is well maintained, clean, and functional. The rooms are adequately appointed, the beds are comfortable, and despite being at the airport, free of intrusive airplane noise. Staff are very well trained, efficient, and helpful. Multiple kiosks for accessing airline e-check in and boarding pass printing are in the lobby. Rarely, one of these has been out of order.

Dining options include in-room options (pricey, but quality good), a lobby sandwich/snack takeout, a casual restaurant (average cost, variable quality- one pasta dish was so salty as to be barely edible, but burgers and salads good), and a steakhouse which is costly, and has an adult ambiance. If convenience trumps seeking high quality and value for food, dine at the hotel.

There is a well staffed, maintained health club 1 flight below the lobby.

Conference rooms are nicely appointed, and the staff can provide excellent food in form of hot and cold breakfasts, lunch; salads, soups, wraps, deserts for business functions. The hotel has a very annoying policy of charging for internet access by the person, not for an entire room, which is NOT consumer friendly, when one has reserved a conference room.

Overall, this hotel is a good respit for a one-day/night layover, avoiding time and transportation issues. For business, plusses are a well trained staff, good conference catering, and clean, updated guest rooms. Lows are relatively pricey computer access policies, and only fair food values at the hotel restaurants. I have stayed there more than 10 times for business travel, and recommend it as reliable and solid value overall, with excellent convenience.

Room Tip: Hallways are very long. Would avoid being adjacent to elevator or at extreme end of a hallway.

Traveling home from MO. to PA. via O'hare and our flight cancels because of weather. GRRRR! We were very grateful for the nice clean room w/ comfy bed & big flat screen TV. Checking in was very fast & pleasant. We ate at the Sportsbar - food was really good (on the pricey side) a beer was 9 bucks WHAT?! BUT - if you need a place to spend the night... this is it! So close to the airport (actually attached) All the staff we spoke to were very friendly ! Thank you

Thank you for the comments you posted about our hotel on Trip Advisor. With our location on airport grounds, we can sympathize with how frustrating flight delays and cancellations can be. We're glad, however, that you were warmly welcomed here at our hotel and made to feel comfortable until your next flight.

Huge convenience. I pulled up to the curb, got the family checked in and sent the bags up with a bellman. Drove to Avis and dropped off the car, took the bus back unencumbered by luggage, and looked forward to walking over to the airport in the morning for our flight with minimal stress.

Did all that work? Yep, sure did. But...

Well, what can you expect? We went down for dinner and paid an absurd amount of money for an okay meal at Andiamo. Not a bad meal, but there is a rote quality to the food, the service, the whole hotel, really. Does anyone stay more than one night? You're just passing through -- everyone is. So every interaction with staff and the amenities is the first -- and last -- time.

Augustin, who checked me in, was extremely pleasant, clearly trying to make sure my stay started off just right. And the server at Andiamo was friendly. And the bell captain, too.

But in the end, you're a captive of the hotel for one night. The rooms are just fine -- they've been updated recently and if not perfect are certainly respectable for the price point. You pay for the great convenience of walking to your gate in the morning. And, despite my minor gripes, I'll probably do it again.

I'm a Hilton HHonors Gold member, so my experiences may differ from others. Here are my pros and cons.

PROS:

- Nicer than most airport hotels.
- Convenient transportation from the economy parking lots. Just a quick walk across the courtyard. You can't beat this location for a morning flight.
- Restaurants are decent (but not amazing) for a quick bite to eat.
- Desk staff was incredibly positive and accommodating with my HHonors Gold benefits.
- The bed, like in all Hilton-branded properties, was outstanding.
- Breakfast was not-over-the-top outstanding, but it was a nice offering and seems almost identical to the last DoubleTree breakfast that I had.


CONS:

- Room was too warm. Had to crack open the window to get any kind of fresh air (the A.C. just wasn't doing it).
- Compared to the larger room size, I was surprised by the smallness of the bathrooms.
- One area of the room's carpeting was sticky. Kind of gross, but not that big of a deal.
- Took me a while to figure out that the remote didn't work with the tv's volume (it worked with a separate system underneath the tv). Weird. I hate to say it, but they need to leave instructions about this.
- Hate the business center. You have to pay to print. The only way around this is to remote print from your room (from your own laptop) and they will print it out at the front desk. Really inconvenient. Took me a half hour to find the business center in the first place, and then I couldn't even use it to print. The signing is awful on the business center level. I've read previous complaints about the confusion with the business center in other TripAdvisor reviews, and I thought they were just whining. Nope. They were justified. Come on guys... step up your game. We travel here for business and leisure, and your business center is just not convenient for either situation.

Overall impression:

Would I stay here again? Yes. Would I pay more than $75 for a room? Probably not. For what you get, this feels like a $75 property, so if you pay more than that, you will probably be disappointed. If you can get it for $75 (or less) you will feel like it's a bargain.

Thank you for the comments, both positive and negative, which you posted about our hotel on Trip Advisor. We are very sorry that your guestroom was not up to par and are sharing your comments with the appropriate staff so that immediate corrective measures are taken. We are also sorry for any inconvenience caused with finding our Business Center, the UPS Store, on the lower level of the hotel, close to the east set of elevators. There is signage coming down from the ceiling directly adjacent from the UPS Store in the hallway. We apologize if this was not visible to you. We also have a 24 hour self-service business center on the lower level at the far east end of the hallway that is accessible with your room key card.

We hope that you will give us the opportunity to serve you better in the future.

Thank you.

We stayed here for less than 12 hours on December 23, 2012. We had a flight into Chicago in the evening and then out of Chicago at 7am. The location was very convenient. The staff was helpful when we told them our luggage was lost. Our stay was very brief so we did not try out most of the amenities in the room or the hotel. We got a great deal on this hotel at hotels.com.

Knowing this hotel is right at the airport, I was not expecting alot, but I will say the room was nice, overlooked a courtyard area, very quiet considering you are at the airport, if you travel with a pet, there is alot of grass around this hotel, and if you are flying AA you cannot beat the local. The front desk staff was friendly, the caterer/hotel housekeeping were very efficient, the bar/restaurant staff was friendly and efficient, really I could not ask for more. This is a very large hotel, but for my one night stay it was just fine. The only thing I did not like is when you are in the room if the bathroom door is open then you can't open the door to the room to enter or leave.

I've stayed at this hotel many times over the years. It's been upgraded since my last visit and I was pleased with the overall quality of room upgrades. I liked the hardwood floors in the rooms and the modern decor even if they didn't completely gut the room and start over.

This hotel is ideal for those who have early morning connections or get in very late. It's connected to the airport, but it's a bit of a walk if you're schlepping a lot of luggage around, so keep that in mind. The front desk was nice, the guest services were terrific and overall, they have done a good job of keeping this place worthy of the prices they charge.

One of the best uses for this place is for meetings when you want to fly in meet and get the heck out. You can do it conveniently and be out of there with a minimum of fuss. That's how I used it in the past. Also having grown up a few hundred miles north, I'd use it the night before I'd catch an early morning flight back to Seattle. This is where the connection to the airport really matters to me. No, it's definitely not a five star hotel, but I'd give it a good solid four.
