This hotel is a little strange, part older high rise and part older low rise. It was clearly fancy in its day, and they have kept up the lobby and common areas, but not the rooms. What makes this a good place to stay is the location: not far outside the city of Chicago, near but not too near OHare (many international visitors and flight crews, so many that they have a flight board in the lobby showing departure times and delays), right across the street from an upscale mall with great restaurants (Maggianos), and super friendly staff. Indeed, the staff are one of the main reasons to stay. They are really friendly, helpful, and there are lots of free things, such as a cookie, water, drinks, and sometimes breakfast depending on your Hilton Honors level. The rooms are not drab and have been updated, but some rooms can be noisy with thin walls. Personally, I would expect Hilton to sell off this property sometime, but I still stay here whenever in the area and recommend it wholeheartedly. I ask for rooms in the east wing (low rise part) because they seem larger and the climate control can be set to "on" for white noise. It is not as pricey as hotels in the city, and is similar to others in the area.
