There is a reason why this hotel is almost permanently packed full of people: it is very affordable indeed. If that is your main criteria for staying in a hotel then this may very well meet your needs. However there are a few reasons why I would not otherwise recommend this place: first and foremost the walls are absolutely wafer thin. Make no mistake about it you will hear your neighbours television and be privy to whatever else they get up to. I frequently heard drunken businessmen in the hotel hallways late at night which was really not what I was looking for on a busy business trip.
Secondly the location is very remote from almost anywhere: 30 minutes from O'Hare airport and almost an hour from Chicago itself. This hotel is in Northbrook not Chicago.
Special mention must go to the hotel bar which is not at all somewhere I would want to spend my free time: however it is almost always packed full of lively travelling businessmen and salesmen so it seems to appeal to some people.
At weekends the hotel tends to become incredibly busy and hosts a lot of conferences. If you need peace and quiet look elsewhere.
The breakfast is adequate and in line with the low price of the hotel.
If you are on a budget and need to be in Northbrook, Illinois then the Crowne Plaza may be an option for you.
