Let's get to the list of positives first.
You could do worse. The La Quinta up the street, for instance. The Red Roof Inn around the corner. So location is a plus. There's a nice guy driving the airport shuttle, that's #2.
You can walk to the Wildfire Grill, which has Fat Tire on tap.
But even in Schaumburg, this Hampton Inn looks and feels overpriced and dated. Because it is overpriced and dated. The bathrooms are small and the shower head is below average. The bed is of adequate quality. I had a better television in my college dorm room.
Yes, the lobby is beautiful but claustrophobic. And because it's small, a full house makes for a crowded breakfast area in the morning.
The bed, which matters most I suppose, is comfortable. The room air conditioner actually works and works pretty well.
As a special bonus, on a prior stay, they had a series of rooms at the street side of the first floor that were roughly the size of a jail cell and reeked of cigarette smoke. I don't know if they still offer these rooms, but I'd avoid them. They are substandard Hampton Inn rooms and I'm surprised they're allowed to offer them.
And unless you have a desire to walk from the Wildfire back to a hotel room after a long night at a wonderful bar, this hotel is best avoided. It is my last choice in Schaumburg.
