“Great location for O'Hare access”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 30, 2014

I booked a night at the Courtyard to avoid additional stress related to driving to O'Hare from across the state. Checked in with my daughter, who was leaving at 3:00 pm and they had a room ready at 10 am! We relaxed in the room, had lunch and rode the free shuttle to O'Hare to Delta's curbside check in. Following her departure I returned to the hotel on the shuttle, relaxed, dined and drove the 2.5 hours back home the following morning. Wish I'd taken my swim suit for what turned out to be a mini-vacation. Another plus: avoiding the parking garage at O'Hare which is not only huge but expensive. Will use this strategy for my daughter's return trip as well.

Room Tip: Small hotel, only five floors. It was a Saturday night and very quiet!

Staff was friendly and helpful. Rooms were clean and amenities were good, pool (inside) workout room and hot tub. The closeness to the airport and casino was good. This non smoking hotel is a gem. The Bistro in the lobby while having a small menu served hot food hot and cold food good.

Green Features: I believe that air conditioning is kept at a good temperature 70 degrees. Guest are asked to reduce laundry by air drying towels and asking for sheets not to be changed unless needed.

Nicely appointed Courtyard. Rooms at good and lobby has been nicely outfitted with Bistro serving quick food and Starbucks. Staff is pleasant. Beds are comfy with lots of pillows. Located right next to Rivers Casino so you can walk a couple of min there.

We stayed here 1 night prior to an early morning flight out of O'Hare and had the parking package.
Check in was very quick and instructions for our car very easy. We were able to leave it parked right in their lot for the week. Instructions for the morning shuttle were quick and clear too. The room was stylish and updated and clean. There was slight traffic noise as the back of the property is very near a highway--no big deal I use ear plugs. In the morning we went down and waited for the shuttle which was on time. The lobby area has a cafe that wasn't open yet but looked like they had several options available. The shuttle brought us to the airport in a short time. When we returned we called the hotel and they advised the driver was on the way. We were back to the hotel and our car quickly. There are some restaurants near the hotel if necessary (McDonald's and Giordanos are 2 that I remember seeing).

Very good experience here, clean room, new hotel. Great breakfast and food available in the lobby.Stayed here for business in chicago and was looking for a location close to the airport. No complaints whatsoever.

Room Tip: Any were fine, some of the carpeting was in the process of being replaced.

Nice hotel, close to Ohare with a free shuttle, big plus. Clean room, okay amenities, another plus. But....

NO FREE COFFEE in the lobby, "per corporate rules', really? To make matters worse, there Starbucks buy coffee shop doesn't open till 6... I am not a fan of this policy! Still a nice hotel.

this is a good place if you want to stay near Chicago Ohare airport. Good light eat options and 24 X 7 star bucks makes it even more attractive. Staff were polite and courteous and were very helpful when we inquired about indian restaurants nearby. They arranged to drop us in their shuttle (complimentary).
