Returned to Chicago for an extended weekend trip to return a visiting family member home. Booked 2 rooms (for a family of 4 with 2 small dogs) at this LQ in advance and got a decent rate (LQ’s rates a generally lower than most hotel chains). Read the reviews and didn’t know what to expect. We stayed at a nearby Staybridge Suites during a previous visit just a little over a month prior, so we were familiar with the area. For a discount hotel, it was a decent place. The location was about as good as you can get; near a couple of major malls, a slew of high-end to fast food-type restaurants, retail shops and corporate facilities.
The rooms were adequately sized for two people (one king bed and one double beds) with the basic amenities. Ours also included a microwave and mini-fridge. The rooms were surprisingly clean and did not look as out-dated as I expected. Fairly large bathrooms and toiletries. The continental breakfast was basic, but decent enough if you didn’t feel like going out to eat (it was cold and snowy, so eating out early in the morning wasn’t too appealing). The free wireless internet seemed reliable and fast enough. The only problems we experienced: 1) the cable wasn’t very clear in our room, so they moved us into another one which was much better, 2) the toilet in the kids’ room backed-up once, but the maintenance guy was dispatched fairly quickly to resolve the problem, and 3) although we were told we were on a non-smoking floor, we still caught the faint remnants of second-hand smoking now and again. A room deodorizer we purchased basically solved that problem. The staff was helpful and informative about the local area.
Other than that, no other major issues. Traveling with a teen and a tween now requires us to book two rooms, so we have to look at bargain and discount hotel chains. If we should return to this area, we will definitely consider staying here again.
