We have stayed in several extended stay hotels in chicago. Skokie has the best extended stay in chicago, illinois considering a combination of location, security, proximity to amenities and attractions, reception and proximity to downtown etc
We stayed here from sept 9 to oct1, 2013
This hotel offers the best value if you are staying long and you want to live like at home. Kitchen was helpful to make our own food. Jewel osco was close by to get tons of groceries. Kitchen had required utensils and a large refrigerator that could take almost anything. Cofee maker, bread toaster, microwave, 2 plate electric cooker cups plate and knife. It felt like home.
Shopping mall, macys and cinema is about 3 to 4dollar taxi away and the hotel gets a taxi for you quiet easily whenever required.
There is an enforcable fine for smoking within the hotel. They had free parking quite useful if renting or driving a car and a restaurant within the same complex.
Room service is 1ce a week but hotel staffs can provide you with new towels and bedsheets as often as required
Dont expect the complimentary services of a luxury hotel in an extended stay hotel. The market is different. You dont get a room service by 12midnight dont expect a continental breakfast buffet in the morning, dont expect a swimming pool. If you want home away from home this is it. If you want a few days break where the hotel does everything for you -this is not the place for you.
Finally they had 2 GREAT staffs - Mirena and Adams. Because of them alone you would want to come back again and again. Pleasant, cautious and caring.
If you are averse to noise remember to ask for a room in the quiet wing.
If you do a lot of laund...
