Stayed in the far western Chicago suburbs this week. Booked this hotel, expecting nice but nothing exciting.

It turned out to be a wonderful place!
Easy to find. Easy check-in by a nice staff. Really great rooms.

Best part? There is a cool café right off the lobby.
Nothing too fancy--just a nice bar/light restaurant, right there.
Cocktails and appetizers close at hand.
LOVED it!
With a charming and lovely bartender.

We had a spa room at this property and really enjoyed it. The room was clean and spacious and the spa was just big enough for two people (but not very spacious). The bed was comfortable. There was a in room refrigerator. The only complaint I had really was the lack of movie channels or pay per view movies. The selection was very limited, which I thought unusual for a hotel of this caliber. The location was good -- not far from the main drag in St. Charles. Everything was a 10 minute car ride away, so plenty of food and entertainment choices. The lobby and common areas are beautiful - lots of comfortable chairs and fireplaces to sit around and enjoy the complimentary newspapers and coffee. Some TVs scattered about in the lobby. I didn't see a proper restaurant, but they have a snack bar with breakfast, lunch, and dinner items. There is also a walk up convenience store for microwaveables and snacks, etc.

Room Tip: 102 has a whirlpool right in the bedroom.

Thank you for your kind comments about the hotel. We do have the most beautiful lobby in St Charles. We get a lot of positive comments about the size and the comfort of the lobby. I am glad to hear that you enjoyed one of our spa king rooms. They are quite popular. Thank you for your suggestion on the TV channels. This is something I can look into to see what options are avaiable to us. We do appreciate you taking the time to share your experience and love the pictures you took of the hotel.

I stay at this hotel once a month for business, usually for two weeks but sometimes more, the staff are always very helpful and treat me with respect. The rooms are very well kept, clean and modern. The food in the bistro bar is pretty good but could do with a little more variety, it's a shame the buffet had been replaced but hey that's progress I guess....Sharon who serves my breakfast is always ready to serve me with a smile, she sets my day up. Andre is always nice to chat too later in the evening, ready to share a retort or two during the football on the tv screen....everyone else calls me by my name and I feel very welcomed. If you have to stay in St Charles then this for me is a must, value vs amenities vs friendly atmosphere A1+

very friendly staff, clean rooms which were much bigger than even a typical marriott rooms

location is ok, easy to find when you know where it is, but no obvious for someone who doesnt know the area.

Pool was clean and well staffed.

Used the Courtyard by Marriott in St. Charles for all our wedding guests and we/they received excellent service. All welcome packets were handed out and everyone was happy with the hotel staff and bar/restaurant. Will use it again for our next daughter's wedding next October.

This hotel really understood our needs as a group of families travelling for hockey in the area. They were accomodating, welcoming, and friendly with our 13 year old boys, who are generally well behaved. The desk staff allowed them to play xbox in the lobby, which drew a crowd and kept them entertained and out of everyone else's hair. They customized a breakfast for our group, and allowed us to use the space throughout our stay. They even assisted us with finding a local restaurant to deliver a team meal. The hotel was beautiful and conveniently located. We would definitely recommend this hotel to anyone.

We appreciate your kind comments about the hotel. Our staff meets after we have groups in the hotel and we find ideas on how to make the stay better based on our customer. We have had many hockey groups come to the hotel. Having this experience has educated us on how to make future hockey groups have a perfect stay. We are so glad to hear that we accomodated all the needs of your group. Thank you for sharing your comments!
