I spent two nights here as a stop over between London & Omaha NE and also to see friends in the Chicago / Milwaukee area. What made me choose this hotel over others was the convenient proximity to Chicago O'Hare airport, the free shuttle to and from the airport - no messing about with variable taxi prices, the good price if you book early enough, the perceived quality of the Radisson brand. The hotel was clean although the slightly dated décor and carpets let it down a little. There was a Target supermarket across the street if you needed to top up your supplies. I used it to replace my tooth paste and a few other items. Although the hotel has these item in vending machines they are not cheap. There are a number of restaurants nearby - IHOP, Chilies grill and bar, the Longhorn steak house right next door, the Steak and shake across the road, the Chipotel Mexican Grill, Subway and if you really must a Starbucks.
The hotel has a business centre just off the main lobby so if you want to print your flight or boarding details off you can. No extra cost just use you room card/key to access. . There is a pool out back but I did not have time to use it.
If you want to get down town cheaply, take the FREE hotel shuttle back to O'Hare and buy a $10 go anywhere all day ticket that takes you on the metro / underground train, you are about one hour twenty minutes ride from Jackson Boulevard down town Chicago, you can use the same ticket on the busses. Its good that there is an integrated transport system.
