I think this a GREAT hotel, despite some drawbacks (like anywhere). A small refrigerator would have been nice (for some water & soft drinks). Maybe their concern is patrons imbibing in their rooms, making a mess & not giving a hoot @ who has to clean up after their slovenly selves!!!! NOTE: If you have (4) people in your room, you have to constantly ask for extra towels for them.
They have amenities right on site (restaurants, a sports bar, a gift shop & car rental office). OakBrook Mall (across the street) is neat (open air). Although not near major sightseeing locations, those are within a short drive. Also, there's a train station nearby that will take you into Union Station (downtown).
Their pool was small. That's ok, as Chicago has a BIG pool (it's called Lake Michigan:)!!!! Nice fitness center.
Staff was very friendly & accommodating:)!! Breakfast buffet is delicious, sports bar has good food too. We were there for my niece's basketball tournament. My brother-in-law said it's by far one of the nicest places they've stayed for those!!!
For the person who complained @ no Wi-Fi in their room, I sympathize. Try the computer by the front desk. Otherwise, the business center is downstairs & probably gets better reception.
