“Great for business”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 4, 2011

Stayed here for 3 nights for a convention.

Reception is up the escalators.

Check-in was fast an efficient but very clinical.
I attempted to check in early but the room wasn't available. At 2pm the room became available.

The room was large and clean. There was a work bench are with excellent access to power points. There was also a TV with good reception, work bench chair, single lounge chair, king bed and cupboard for clothes. There was an iron and ironing board which were both clean. The room mini-bar was quiet as was the air-con which worked well.

The room was quiet even though it was close to the elevator.

The bathroom had a TV monitor embedded in the mirror which could be accessed with a remote control. When not used as a TV it would cycle through the hotel events that were taking place. There was a shower over bath usual set-up. Toiletries were generic and fine.

I used room service for 1 late dinner and breakfast each day. Each time the phone service was friendly and delivery was fast. The food was tasty and hot (always must remember it has had to travel from kitchen to your room). The delivery person was always friendly and made brief small talk as they unpacked your food.

The hotel bar (near reception) was fine for evening drinks.
The hotel has free wifi around the reception otherwise they do advise there is a charge.
The hotel also has a free local shuttle which we used several times. The driver was always friendly.

Check out was again fast and efficient.

For a convention hotel they do the job well. I would use this hotel again for business.

The Renaissance Schaumburg is a large hotel and convention centre that does what it says on the tin. The highlights were:
1. The fabulous smell of the pre lobby.
2. The bar and the the popcorn shrimp on the bar menu
3. Generously sized room that was good for working
4. The section of the bathroom mirror that transmitted the conference schedule for the day along with the temp and wind speed
5. The amount of glass - which made it really light - often at a conference hotel you don't get to see any natural light for days
6. The proximity of a major shopping centre (20 min walk)

Room Tip: A room overlooking the fountain is better than a room overlooking the highway!

I stayed here for five days for a trade show and it worked very well. The hotel lobby and lounge area are very modern, almost European looking. Design wise, it was very creative in using screens and lighting to segregate areas without feeling closed in.

The rooms were very comfortable, mini-suites, for an extended stay. The service was a bit hit or miss. Either it was very good or it was okay. For example, the housekeeping and front desk staff were extremely attentive. Unfortunately, if you valet your car or need a cab anywhere good luck finding help. Also, the restaurants seemed understaffed especially with a two big conventions in house. That being said, the food was very good.

All in all, I would definitely stay at the hotel again.

Room Tip: Try and stay above the 6th floor. There is a huge atrium straight up from the lobby and the first fi...

I stayed here for conference and I must say that this is a great hotel. Right from the time that I walked in the door I was treated with great service and a smile. The rooms were clean and comfortable. The most amazing feature is a television in the bathroom mirror. I must admit seeing in believing. I liked watching the news as I got ready in the morning. Another great feature is shuttle service to the Woodfield Mall and area restaurants. If there is a conference to attend at this facility I would gladly attend again. Thanks for a fantastic stay!

Clean, contemporary, a feast for the eyes. We were amazed at the attention to detail in the decor and architecture of the hotel. The subtle repeating patterns in design. As for the stay, everything was done with excellence from check-in to check-out. We'd stay here again!

When you first arrive you briefly wonder where the lobby might be, yet the design simply leads you there. Somewhat like a Frank Lloyd Wright house design. He liked to hide the front door and have people discover the path to find it. Then you arrive in the lobby and find various little contemporary seating areas scattered about. Interesting.

Our room was clean, well designed, quite, and comfortable. Loved the TV designed in the bathroom mirror. Great desk set up with full functionality for computing.

Nice convention facility. Hope we can return for a future event.
