I needed to stay overnight in this area and chose this hotel due to the proximity of my meeting the next morning. The check-in was weird as they staff got confused and evidently checked me in as another person with my same last name. Eventually, it got cleared up and I got my room. The room was nice, clean and... More

This is a nice hotel with very kind and friendly staff in a quiet suburb of Chicago. Rooms are spacious and comfortable, with decent bathrooms. Beds and bed sheets are great. Rooms are cleaned daily, towels replaced. We only had one incident - some colouring pencils ended up under the sofa, and we accidentally recovered an unknown pill that must... More

I'm writing this review a few hours before checkout. I had to overnight at this hotel after major flight delays/cancelation at O'Haare, I am out of state.
