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