We stayed at the Grand Hotel and Suites on a Monday night and visited Six Flags Great America on both Monday and Tuesday. It ended up being cheaper for us to pay for the hotel room here and come back to eat in our room than it would have been to purchase food for our family of 5 while at the park. It's definitely not a new hotel, but I was pleasantly surprised. The bathtub was huge, which I really appreciated for some relaxation after our long drive to Gurnee. Also, I wasn't sure how I was going to like the memory foam mattresses on the beds, but I slept the entire night, without waking up even once which is an experience that I never have at home in my own bed. The refrigerator didn't get as cold as I would have liked, and the turntable in the microwave didnt spin as it cooked, the room had a small old-school tv set rather than the flatscreens you usually see in hotel rooms (which wasn't really a big deal because we weren't really planning on watching television). The room was clean and larger than most standard hotel rooms, and there were 2 sinks, one in the bathroom and one outside of it, which helps when you have a big family all trying to get ready in the morning. We did check out the hotel pool one evening after Six Flags closed and although the pool room looks very inviting with paintings on the walls, the water was freezing cold, had a murky tint to the water, and it smelled like a dirty gym sock. I think we'll avoid the pool next time. Check in and out were both quick and the lady at the desk was pleasant and helpful.
