Breakfast Dated, rooms not very clean, room doors are glass with curtains (not very practical), interior of rooms beat up, dated, and in need of serious renovation. Not typical of other Embassy Suits I've stayed in.
Enjoyable and quiet
We liked the location being close to the convention center. The whole building was vastly under staffed. We could see the frustration in the eyes of the existing staff. Management was overwhelmed and appeared not to have proper training or experience. The elevators were not all operating and it took far too much time to get from the top floor to the lobby. The breakfast was cold and under cooked. On the last day of our stay the D.E.A. made a bust and was running around with guns drawn, while looking for someone. This made the reason for hearing people knocking on the door in the next room all night clear. I will be staying at the Hilton next year.
Great location for shopping and restaurants. Rooms need to be updated and staff are not as friendly as I'm accustomed to when staying at Hilton Honors properties. Elevators are slow, so wait time can be longer than expected.
Liked the valet parking, the breakfast that's included, and its location in relation to the Stephenson Convention Center. Comfy bed. Poor service in the tavern, we walked out in anger. Coffee supplied in the rooms was just nasty tasting (Rain Forest French Roast, Yech!)
Spent overnight at thew hotel. Good service and helpful staff.
The room, the fact that there was a restaurant,and a breakfast
We loved everything! Mostly, we loved the attitude of the staff. They made us feel welcome and went overboard to be helpful. Didn't like having to leave.
The hotel's facilities are excellent. It offers a breakfast as part of the room package that's wonderful; a chef cooks omelettes to order and there are a wide variety of other great breakfast items to add to your plate(s). The hotel's staff was very cordial, however I had a concerning experience with the reservations staff. As is my practice, I called the hotel the day of my arrival (May 23)to confirm my reservation. I was advised that no reservation had been made in my name. The clerk apparently searched for it in a variety of ways, but was unable to locate it. I eventually made another reservation through hotel staff. When I arrived at the hotel for check in, the counter clerk found both resrvations. She kindly canceled the second reservation (without penalty). No one seemed to know why my Booking.Com reservation was not visible (made on May 14) was not found by the hotel staff person I talked with earlier on May 23.
HORRIBLE!!! First, I rate your hotel with NO STARS - It appears that I gave you more on the last page. We were a party of 4 adult family members looking for a room near O'Hare airport with two double beds to sleep in for 5 hours before flying home. Upon arrival we were told by the desk clerk (who cleverly concealed her identity by not wearing a name tag) that our confirmed reservation was "only a request", and all she had was king bedded rooms. I asked her if she was giving us two rooms and she said no, she had only 3 rooms left, but 4 reservations. It was AWFUL in every way. I felt like I was in a cell block. My son slept on an aerobed, & my brother on a window seat. The county jail would have been better. I will never return and will tell everyone I know to avoid your brand like the plague unless they like liars, unpleasant/ unfriendly staff, the noise of a running toilet all night and a sterile, ugly atmosphere. P.S. Readers - I am a hotel professional of 38 years and know of what I speak!
Modern look and feel throughout, in public areas as well as guest room. Plenty of space in common areas to sit, work, read, etc. Room may not be the best for getting work done but was good for sleeping. Rates when I was there were competitive compared to other airport hotels and much less expensive than downtown. Friendly staff. Minor complaints: Not as close to the Blue Line as advertised (although the shuttle will take you there). Entrance is hard to find by car/taxi, but once you've done it it's easy enough to remember. O'Hare is a busy airport so planes are flying overhead all day and night - otherwise fairly quiet. Mediocre coffee.
Good hotel, small but good Small but good
Helpful staff, clean environment, great location
The heater was so loud and rattled it woke me up in the middle of the night, I thought an airplane was landing outside the building
The hotel was very clean, the bed was plush and extremely comfortable. The staff was frendly and helpful. They also have an airport shuttle which makes it very easy to access.
We had to travel with our dog and they were had no problems with having her at the hotel. We called ahead. A little more space.
Cool euro style rooms, super easy access to O Hare
Great location for getting to the city and the airport!
