I had a great two night stay for training program by my employer. The rooms were small but comfortable and adequate. The food was good with many options. I had a chance to check out a bike and ride the trails which was nice. If you go to the Q Center straight to and from the airport, like I did, you won't really see Chicago at all. The location is so remote from the city but is great for focusing on tasks at hand. Plan on comfortable shoes because its really a long walk from the guest rooms to meals, classrooms, etc. The free wifi was good enough for me. The building is old but well maintained and it feels slightly historical to me, as many older colleagues mentioned that they stayed at the Q center decades ago as recent college graduates. Overall a good place.
