It has been several years since my last visit to this establishment. The new General Manager, Mr. Schoolby, has done much to improve the place in that time. The hotel is now clean and polished. The day staff is much friendlier and accommodating. A smile and a hello is ever present. Unfortunately, the night staff still leaves a lot to be desired. For example, when asked why the concierge lounge had no water, one employee at the front desk simply said they are understaffed and offered no replenishment. No smiles here.
However, the biggest problem here is physical. The bathrooms are ridiculously small and the rooms that face the Oak Brook Mall have an issue with window insulation. These rooms are plenty COLD. Increasing the heat to 78degrees helps but then leaves the part of the room by the door too hot. It makes for an uncomfortable stay. The rooms on the other side of the hotel are not cold, but still have the bathroom size issue.
