I've spent 2 weeks in Q Center for business.
Starting with the room. It's small. No matter what you say, standard room is just small. Mine was clean (in opposite to other reviews)
Food isn't great, although thanks to the variety of dishes I think everyone can find something for themselves.
It's located quite far away from... anything ;) you have to take taxi to go to St. Charles (15 mins) or Chicago (1h).
I've used service to receive and send a package and book some tickets. Everyone was nice and helpful.
So what's good about this place? For me it was the thing that there is a lot to do. There is gym, game room (with pool tables), pubs (places where you can sit and have beer with others), two restaurants (or should I call it canteens?), laundry rooms (if you're not willing to pay for the service) and lots of space outside (basketball, running, walking...). You can even watch some movies - I personally didn't.
I wouldn't recommend it for weekend for two, or family holiday. But if you're going for business - don't be afraid, it won't be bad :)
