“Great hotel - just wish it were in the city!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 14, 2012

I chose this hotel based primarily on the Trip Advisor reviews and I'm glad I did. I had business in Des Plaines and this hotel proved to be ideal. The location precluded me from going into the city of Chicago, but it was convenient for arriving from and going to the airport. Everyone from the shuttle driver on was exceptionally friendly and attentive. The complimentary parking and wi-fi made it a convenient meet-up point for friends and co-workers. The rooms were clean and comfortable and virtually noise-proof. The new casino a half-block down provides a fun little escape if you have some time to kill and are in a gambling mood. All in all, a great place to stay.

Hosted a small meeting with people from all over North America at this just 6 year old property. The renovations to lobby, restaurant & bar as well as rooms completed last month made this a great choice. Just minutes from the airport via free shuttle. Manager handled setting up two private dinners for 16 at excellent area restaurants -- one included a private dining room and of course free transport to and from. Meeting facilities were excellent and room set up, breakfast & lunch very easy for us to enjoy. Most accomodating. Rate this highly. Did I mention that the shuttle will also get you to the blue L line into the city in 40 minutes? Sweet!

Just returned from a 4 night stay at the Garden Inn. Conveniently located to O'hare. Loved the casino next door. Great places to eat within a mile of this hotel. I stayed here a few months ago before the remodel. The renovations are great. Rooms are in wonderful condition. The only downside is that my connection to the wireless internet kept getting dropped. It happed 5 times during the week I was there. I spent all my time at the hotel, as I was attending a conference. Nice place!

The O'Hare Hilton Garden Inn in Des Plaines, IL is a very attractive hotel, from the moment you enter the front door. My wife thought it would just be another "garden variety" (sorry!), average hotel. She commented about her surprise the moment we walked into the warm, inviting lobby. But it was the staff of the hotel that was above average in the way that mattered most. I was especially impressed with the young man who was the night manager, Eduardo. I found out later that besides his demanding job as the all-nighter front desk manager, he is a full-time student at U of Illinois-Chicago. Eduardo was a very welcoming, helpful manager; a very professional young man with a gift for service, as were many of the other staff members. One young senorita I ran into on the elevator in the morning was very friendly, welcoming and thanking me persoanally for staying at the hotel. The staff has clearly been well chosen and trained to welcome guests and give them a positive experience. Oh, and our room...my wife loved it! So did I.

Stayed here as it was convenient to the airport. I had guests arriving from Japan and needed a hotel with free shuttle service.

First I must say, the staff that checked us in was superb! I like to request a bed & breakfast rate for my colleagues from Japan. This hotel did not have such rates but because I am a Diamond member with HHonors, they gave both of my colleagues a breakfast coupon. It's the little things like this that make my long travel week start off with a smile.

If you have to stay in town with your family I highly recommend this place because of the pool. I saw pictures posted. I was in the gym and saw families having a great time...the pool is made for kids.

Typical HGI features, nothing bad to say.

I will make this short because I love this place my family and I choose this hotel everytime we stay in the Chicago area. Close to the airport, great shuttle service, park and ride, close to blue line and great value. I love working out and they have one of the best workout areas for a value hotel. I just love this place.

Just five minutes from O'Hare Airport in Chicago. Newly remodeled, excellent staff, clean, comfortable (even has adjustable beds!!) It's also two doors down from the Red River Casino(not sure, we did not visit the casino). Our room also had a fridge and microwave...and they give real creamers for your morning coffee!! Wireless internet was easy to use as well.
: )
Enjoy your stay...and don't forget to tip those wonderful room attendants...they always deserve it!
