Its a old college which an old college feel to it. It really needs to be updated. Rooms are super tiny- smaller than typical dorm rooms. The shower/toilet area is basically the size or a mini closet and the sink is outside the bathroom on the same counter as you would put your things. Food was okay.. no options for... More

This was the best conference venue I've stayed at. Blown away by the food, facilities (gym, etc) and location. Loved my stay here. Cleaning every day was very much appreciated and we loved the pub with the friendly staff!

If your business has a goal of getting away from the distraction of a big city and getting your employees to focus on networking with each other, this is a good choice, as it is well away from just about everything. The business facilities are very good. The grounds are very nice. The complex is very large and because it... More

Set in beautiful surroundings, this training facility is more a university campus than a conference hotel. However, the campus spirit was thriving. And the staff in the bars and restaurants were very friendly. The location is great for a conference/training facility, since it helps the attendees not to be distracted. There are shuttle services to St Charles and a great... More

Everytime is even better then the last one. Always remember the first time I went. Althought it has evolved, there are things that never change. Great food and service crew, great sport facilities and great colleagues from all around the world.

Stayed at the Q center for a training. Overall the location was a bit out the way but the conference center was very nice. Rooms are a little small but the food was great. Overall I think my 3 day stay was just enough. Wouldn't mind going back if needed.

I stayed at the Q Center for a conference. I understand that this big building/set of buildings was once a college. The rooms were small, but very adequate for my needs. My bed was really comfortable and I usually struggle to feel comfortable in most hotel type situations. I slept great! The best part was that the standard room rate... More

Training facilities are excellent and staff is very helpful. Food is average...similar to a college cafeteria and not up to the standard that most traveling executives would expect. Rooms are small and need updating. About an hour from O'Hare.

What can I say about this ridiculously atrocious "training center"? The conditions you are subjected to as a training participant are probably worse than prison standards. Rooms - In these teeny tiny, 6 foot wide by 8 foot long cells, you do not even get the smallest sense of personal space or privacy. The bed is a joke, not even... More

Very clean. Single rooms are super small. Iron and ironing board in room. Included meals are buffet style. Nice variety. Snacks provided. Gym on site. It's a little on the expensive side but worth it because you don't have to rent a car, worry about traffic or parking, or getting lost if CCN is paying for the ride from the... More
