I don't want my title to scare people away from this establishment. This is a good Hotel. If you are transacting business with the State of Illinois you should stay here. All of the major state offices are right across the street as well as the state capitol building. If you are taking Amtrak you are only about three blocks from this hotel. They have an outstanding breakfast. The rooms have everthing you would ever need in a hotel room. There were only two problems I had with this hotel. Granted, since I was traveling alone, these were really not issues for me. However, if a family of four were to stay in the room is was in, these two things might be a problem. First, the bathroom door was a large sliding door which covered the closet when it was open. A novel idea at that. However, the door did not have any kind of lock on it. This was not an issue for me, but for a family of four a lock on the door is important. The other problem was the lack of floor space. If you look at the photos accompanying this review, shots numbered 4, 18, 36 and 37 were probably taken in a room like the one I stayed in. By the time you put in two queensized beds, a chair, a floor lamp and a large combination chest of drawers and desk, which also serves as a TV stand, it just does not leave any room for much else. I might suggest that the management remove the furniture other than the beds and do the following. Replace the current TV with a wall mounted flat screen. Replace the floor lamp with a hanging lamp. Get rid of the the combination desk and chest of drawers. In its place, put some drawers in the closet and put a smaller desk in the corner by the window. These changes would improve the room considrably. In conclusion, if you are traveling on your own, my room was fine. If you are traveling with a family, you might want to consider a different room. Overall, the palce is a good hotel.
