“Frank Lloyd Wright-like architecture”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 December 2013

We booked two nights here to help our daughter with her move, and chose the location because it was convenient and reasonably priced (not too many people playing golf in December with sub-zero temperatures). To our very pleasant surprise, we noticed a number of architectural details that looked like Frank Lloyd Wright's work. A quick Google search revealed that the architect was an apprentice of FLW. Search "Hilton Indian Lakes Resort Frank Lloyd Wright" for more of the story.

We had a wonderful stay and very much enjoyed our room, which was large and in the shape of a hexagon. The bath was also much larger than your typical hotel. Half of the rooms look over the indoor atrium with plants, waterfalls, and fountains; the other half have views of the grounds and 27-hole golf course. The furnishings, signage, and interior design were clearly influenced by FLW. The hotel is a wonderful experience and not like most modern big box hotels or motels, for example, no long straight hallways.

The staff was friendly and helpful, the setting peaceful and relaxing. We had free WiFi access.

The only complaint was the lack of outlets on or behind the night table. A single duplex outlet was occupied by the table lamp and clock radio. We always travel with extension cords and cube-taps, so we were able to accommodate chargers for two iPhones, two iPads, and my hearing-aid bluetooth adapter.

If you are a fan of Frank Lloyd Wright or enjoy outstanding architecture, I strongly recommend a stay at Indian Lakes Resort. Even if you don't pay attention to the architecture, expect a wonderful visit.

Indian Lakes Resort used to offer movie rentals, but they no longer do so and this was a disappointment. The Hotel itself needs updating. The beds were comfortable and the room was clean. The food is good but menu is limited. I would recommend this hotel, especially doing the warmer months.

We have stayed at the Indian Lakes Hilton several times, but this stay was by far the best. We got the Super Family Fun package which included: An overnight stay for up to four guests 1 round of Mini-Golf per person and Cosmic mini-golf $25 food voucher for restaurants Four movie tickets for four to Hollywood Blvd. in Woodridge Two noodles at check-in for the pool Snack basket upon arrival Cookies and milk in the evenings Refrigerator in room Breakfast for up to four We took advantage of everything! Breakfast was delicious and we received 4 huge cookies and milk in our room in the evening. My kids loved the pool and the room was spacious and comfortable. We would definitely stay here again.

Our family stayed for a long holiday weekend over Thanksgiving and were very pleased with the facility. We ate at the Thanksgiving brunch buffet which was exceptional! The rooms were large and comfortable and quiet. Beds were very comfortable. This hotel has one of the largest indoor pools we have every experienced. The large atrium area and the unique architecture made this hotel stand out above others. Free parking, close proximity to shopping, game room and excellent work-out facility. Something for everybody. We definitely plan on staying there again.

I stayed at this property on business so used limited amenities. I had a room on the 5th floor, it was spacious and clean. However, it needed paint around the windows and the wallpaper was ripped in the bathroom. We arrived for dinner at Shiraz 10 minutes before closing and the hostess was gracious and recommended quick dinners and did not rush us. There is a bar called "the Cave" that is musty due to the waterfall and pond outside in the lobby. The staff I encountered were friendly. There should be more attention to detail. Wine glasses we used on Monday night in the lobby area were still there on Tuesday night. Overall this is a very nice property but is in dire need of a lift.

Wow!! The best thing I found about this hotel was it's comfort when in bed. Pacific Coast Pillows are the best. The television could use a better connection to the network fuzzy pictures, but overall had a great time. A plus.
