We were a bit skeptical when booking this hotel -- but it was almost perfect in every way! Room quality and amenities fall closely in line with five star properties (Waldorf, Ritz, Four Seasons) at a fraction of the price. While the service is a bit below five star level, this is an amazing hotel for Naperville.
We tried the on-site restaurant/bar (SugarToad) for a drink and appetizer. While the was decent and the atmosphere was nice, we were the only patrons at 6 pm. on a Sunday night. Ended up walking down the street 1 block to a sports bar that was located in the same complex for another drink and appetizer. Definitely worth the walk if you are looking for cheaper drinks.
All said, while the location is a bit out of the way, we would definitely stay here again!
