The room was great, reminded me of a nicer Westin. Soaking tub was fabulous, bathroom spacious. I love places that offer turndown service. I don't like having to call for ice, though. It took 3 calls and a half hour. Room service was pretty good. Beds comfortable. They offered lemon infused water in the lobby, which I loved. A couple times I had to wait a LONG time for someone to valet my car. At one point I just left my car out front and gave the keys to the person at the front desk. Oddly, got a call 45 minutes later wondering if I wanted my car valeted and did I have the keys...
The restaurant, despite being pretty empty (and good reviews) was only fair at best.
I thought the hotel was a little pricey. It isn't the Four Seasons! There aren't any "nice" hotels in the area...you are either staying at a cheap hotel or this place. I haven't ever been to this area before, or I might have liked to stay closer to the darling downtown area in Naperville, where you can walk to tons of quaint shops and restaurants. Hotel Arista is about 15 minutes from that area. There is literally nothing near the hotel.
