quaint hotel in 30,000 population Chicago Suburb. Reservation included Suite room with large bedroom and "smallish" connected sitting area. Staff generally nice not a ton of interaction needed. 2 night stay during town festival called "Riverfest". Plenty of activities around even if the town festival wasn't there. Biggest down side is no hotel parking. You are reliant on street parking or parking structures two blocks or so away. Continental breakfast included that had a nice spread of fruit, breads, sweets, cereal and scrambled eggs. Appears to be popular place for wedding receptions and private parties. Nice set up and facilities for that activity. Hotel is right on the Fox River. Beautiful to look at but had a unique scent that is not appealing. Other challenge of the River is the river bugs. Nice garden for walk and view with photo opportunities. Neat touch was the housekeeping fresh cookie delivery post check in. Overall nice stay but a touch on the expensive side for the facility and it's age. WiFi available but did not use.
