It was all that it said it was as advertised on the website. For us it was the perfect getaway, and the fact that we were on the 10th floor, an executive key entry floor, was perfect for us. We were treated to use of the executive lounge for hors d'oeuvres and drinks, which was a very nice way to be greeted before we went to our room. The hostess was excellent and got us everything we needed. The room was comfortable, however there was no safe in the room, that was an issue for us. The whirlpool tub was only suitable for one. The shower was great....lots of room and the bathroom was spacious! Overall it is a great hotel with very few exceptions. The staff was incredibly helpful in getting us to where we needed to be. They have a shuttle service that will bring you to the train station and it was a nice ride into the city. We would definitely go there again if we returned to the area. This hotel seemed to have ALL that we were looking for in a getaway, spa, sauna, pool, workout room. The only complaints were that the card did not work a few times to give us access to our floor, there was a dog barking incessantly in the next room (although being a dog owner, it didn't bother me), and the heater didn't work all that well. We did not notice those things because the staff made it so nice for us, and we were too busy to dwell on the problems. The food at the restaurant was excellent, as was room service. I highly recommend the Hilton Northbrook for couples.
