My wife and I stayed at the TownePlace Suites in Joliet, IL for a little weekend getaway, and to meet some friends who live in Chicago and some family from out of town. After the last few hotel stays we’ve had that have been much less than even slightly satisfying, we were very pleasantly surprised by what this location has to offer. The entire building is smartly decorated with a very contemporary feel. The color palette is close to being primary colors, with secondary colors as accent. The real gem, though, are the suites.
One could easily find oneself quite comfortable for an extended stay in these rooms. The work area is modular with plenty of desktop space, and no lack of power outlets. Network access is both wireless and has Ethernet jacks available in the room. The unbelievably-comfortable-for-a-hotel-workstation-chair was very nice, and underneath the main desktop was another desk that pulls out, on four wheels, for working convenience no matter where you are in the room.
The bathroom had the main entry door, and then a two-panel door that allowed access to the close, which was also accessible immediately inside the door to the room. This is smart in that it allows you access to whatever you put in there from two different rooms, but you can also sneak from the bathroom into the kitchenette for the purpose of practical jokes.
The kitchenette was very nice. Fully stocked with plates, silverware, glassware, pot and pans, a small electric stovetop for cooking, a dishwasher, microwave, garbage disposal, coffee pot, toaster, and apartment size refrigerator and freezer….and they ALL WORK!
The “In a Pinch” store has a decent selection of items from snack and beverages to toothbrushes and headache relief. The free breakfast is better than your average continental breakfast, accompanied by a very nice seating area.
The entire facility is very well cared for and clean, leading one to think it is either really new, or they really pay attention to detail. I tend to side with the latter.
From the top to the bottom, from the suites to the pool, from the entryway to the knowledgeable and very helpful staff, all I can say is OUTSTANDING
