“Pretty good Hampton Inn”
Reviewed July 21, 2011

We stayed here for a week in August 2010, so apologies for the late review. We had a good stay here, and the hotel was modern, clean, and comfortable. The room was more like a Homewood Suites than a Hampton Inn, which was a pleasant surprise. We got a very good rate, and it was excellent value for our trip to Chicago.

We LOVE this hotel. Beds are perfect, with fold out couch for our son, king size bed with comfy mattress for us. Great pool with WARM water; they even had tons of pool towels and pool toys for the kids! Plenty big enough to swim and play. Had hot tub and sauna, too. Exercise facility was quite impressive for a hotel - several treadmills, several ellipticals, all up to date with attached monitors and free ear buds so you can listen to your show (or enjoy the silence). TGI Fridays is attached to hotel; we enjoyed the variety of food and the calorie counts helped us stay on our diets. Breakfast was quite good, with lots of variety and plenty of places to sit. Near an amazing, upscale mall. Free parking and reasonable price for all you get. Will stay here definitely next time our travels take us to the area.

My family stayed here for 3 nights this month, and we absolutely loved this hotel. It was modern looking, seemed new and clean, and our room was a king bed suite with a pull out couch for our son. It was even better than the pictures - we had a stove top (didn't use it, but it was nice to have the option), a microwave and a full fridge. For a family with a picky eater, it was nice to have a full fridge so that we could buy some food and not eat out all the time. Breakfast was slightly different every day - eggs all days, but different styles, different meats, and always had things like waffles, cereal, fruit, donuts, bagels, toast and english muffins. Coffee in the lobby all day, and we loved the little snack shop in the lobby. Great location - right off the freeway - easy to get to Six Flags or Chicago. Also right across the freeway from a mall with nice restaurants. Nice pool, a little smaller than some hotels, but it was nice. Staff were very pleasant during our stay. Ruby Tuesday connected to hotel and they deliver/dine in or pick up. Somewhat pricey, but for Chicago and the fact that you get free parking and free internet, it makes up for it. We would stay here again and recommend to our friends.

Front desk clerk was pretty rude and inefficient. We had an online reservation for a King study which has a pullout sofa bed. Lucky for me I had it in writing. The hotel was sold out and she tried to tell me the sofa was not a pullout bed. She sent someone up to check the room and it was indeed a pullout. After a very long travel day she made us wait unnecessarily and was not very nice about it. Commented that we were getting a AAA rate as if that should matter. For $186.20 the room was nothing special, it was the smallest on our 2 week college road trip. Did have Nutrogena products which was nice. Breakfast was also very good. Did not sleep very well because I found the bed uncomfortable, too lumpy and soft. The clock in the room was set an hour behind, we did realize it so it wasn't a problem for us. Overall a very average hotel, not bad, not great.

Stayed at the Hampton Inn for about the 6th or 7th time in the last 7 years for my daughter's college graduation. This hotel is not an elegant luxury hotel, but it is always clean, comfortable, and staffed by pleasant, helpful people; all for a very reasonable price by Chicago standards. Free parking, free wireless access, workout room, pool, free breakfast, newly remodeled lobby, restaurant next door. It is great for families. I am always happy with my stay there.

We recently stayed here and have many times in the past. This time we were displeased about being awoken by the sound of refuse collection. When we reported this to the hotel they credited our account for the night. They mean it when they say if you're not 100 percent pleased, you get your money back.

I stayed at this hotel for three nights for a family member's graduation, and although I am no longer a devotee of Hampton due to my Marriott family allegiance, I must say that this Hampton Inn and Suites may cause me to consider Hampton properties anew in the future. The lobby and breakfast/lounge areas were very nice, and the front desk staff was top-notch. Although there seemed to be a nice indoor pool, I did not have time to check it out. The room, although not the biggest, was well-equipped and was bright and airy. The bathroom was very nice - I find this is a very consistent attribute with Hampton Inns these days. Nice, large, granite countertop, nice mirror, and a big shower. Plus, you can't go wrong with the Neutrogena toiletries. The room was very clean, and the free breakfast was nice.

Room Tip: To pay less, tell the front desk you're solo!
