Check in was easy and efficient. When I arrived in the room and saw the size, I went back to the reception to let them know an executive room was booked for me and this one was quite small. The answer was that I should feel lucky because people are fighting to get this kind of rooms... Given the size of the regular ones, I do understand! The other point is that the Q Centre is in the middle of nowhere. Event St Charles is not at a walking distance. And Chicago is very far away (60+ miles). So you end up in the Q-Centre pub every evening... Now beside the tiny size of the rooms, the Q-Centre provides a high quality service. Wifi is accessible almost everywhere and is free. The business centre is extremely efficient. The restaurant is well organised (important when 1000 people want to take their breakfast at the same time!). The meeting rooms and conference facilities are also of high standards.
In short, good for the business side. But becomes boring if you have to spend more than 2 days...
