Crowne Plaza Lombard Downers Grove
Ranked #2 of 4 Hotels in Glen Ellyn
Reviewed November 26, 2008

I was in the area (Westchester) for a week of work and stayed at this Crowne Plaza. I was pleasantly surprised and very much enjoyed my stay at this hotel. The hotel room was comfortable and all furnishings were brand new. As a woman traveling alone I often take into account the safety of each hotel I stay at and there were no problems at this Crowne Plaza and the neighborhood was just fine.

Like the other reviewer my only complaint was that the bathroom was quite small. This was really no problem for me since I was traveling alone, but adding a second person to the bathroom would have been impossible.

The staff is extremely friendly and courteous. Overall my stay was great from start to finish.

Arrived at this new Crowne Plaza on a Saturday from O'Hare Airport, about a 30 minute drive with marginal traffic. I was visiting friends nearby, and this hotel is about 1 mile from the nice little town of Glen Ellyn--although the hotel itself is on non-descript Rte. 38, away from the little town's center. I drove east into downtown Chicago for a Saturday evening function and the traffic on Rte 38 to I-290E to downtown Chicago is nightmarish--a 20 mile trip took 1 hour, 15 minutes.

I understand the hotel has only been open for a few weeks, and is still in a "soft opening" status, according to the front desk. Hotel is decorated in a chic, sparse, style, especially the lobby, with a modern, small gas fireplace. The ground floor indoor pool looked very nice, and there was a wedding reception planned in the small meeting rooms off of the lobby. The room my wife and I stayed in was nicely appointed, with a very comfortable king bed, large screeen TV, and new everything. My down-checks were that the bathroom was VERY small--the inward swinging bathroom door almost touches the toilet; and the clothes closet is nothing more that a drapery covering a clothes hanging rack. The designers of the rehab of this former Holiday Inn missed the boat on the bathroom.

The hotel restaurant seemed nice, and the staff eager, but we had plans elsewhere. Because my rate was under $100 with tax, it was a great value over paying 3X in center city Chicago, but if you are traveling to downtown Chicago, traffic is a concern.
