I live in the actual city of Chicago not too far from the United Center but a friend's band was playing at the Grand Victoria Casino. Not wanting to schlep myself back to the city at 2am, I booked a room here. Got a fantastic deal on Hotwire and this was only a few miles from the casino.
This is a fantastic place to stay if you want to enjoy the Fox River, hit the casino, and maybe hit the Huntley Outlet Mall. Beautiful accommodations, friendly staff, and a reasonable price for now nice it is.
If your goal is to explore the actual city of Chicago, this really is not the hotel to book. Take it from a local...Get one closer to the city or at least right by one of the airports where you have easy access to the L. From this hotel, you're looking at a 45 minute drive to downtown with perfect traffic & weather conditions and there's no such thing unless it's 3am. And for the amount you'll spend on your Metra tickets from this far out on the line, you're better off spending more on a hotel closer to the city.
