I split my time on a recent visit to ChiTown between two Hiltons - the Chicago Hilton downtown and the Hilton Rosemont/O'Hare. The Chicago Hilton wins the location prize, but the Rosemont Hilton wins the nice hotel award.
The hotel is pleasant from the minute you enter its revolving door - a big, clean, airy sleek lobby, with very attractive sitting areas and an inviting bar. It's a very relaxing and calming setting, particularly if you've been dealing with O'Harried Airport.
The front desk staff was very friendly and helpful, and check-in was a breeze. My room was large, handsome and comfortable, with the requisite flat-screen TV sitting on top of the desk.
Inside the room was an uber-comfortable king-sized bed with ample pillows, along with nice furnishings and a great work desk. Much to my delight, the in-room coffee service featured Lavazza coffee and actual liquid creamer. The bathroom too was large, clean and well-equipped, with good Peter Thomas Roth bath products.
I ordered out for a Giordano's pizza so I didn't sample the room service, but the menu looked good, if typically overpriced. The hotel also featured an attractive restaurant and bar.
For recreation, the Hilton has a pool and fitness room. There's also a business center with computers, printers, etc that's free of charge to guests.
The Hilton is on River Road, the main O'Hare-area hotel strip in Rosemont. It's across from the Stephens Convention Center. The airport area is not exactly compelling, and dining options beyond the hotel are limited.
The hotel is about 2 1/2 long suburban blocks from the Rosemont stop on the CTA's blue line, and from there it's about a 35-40 minute ride into downtown Chicago. The River Road area is designed for cars, not people, but lots of people walk to the Rosemont station. And if you're tired, you can always take the hotel shuttle to O'Hare and catch the Blue Line from there.
