“"A Cozy Gem Amid a High Trafficed Area"”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 September 2011

Our family discovered this hotel was perfect for all of us; clean, neat, with a staff most friendly and co-operative. We enjoyed that breakfast by ordering off the menu and internet area. Persons flying from O"hare could check their flight statis in the lobby, print their E-ticketsOne and be shuttled to the airport.
While one of our party attended a conference nearby and could be shuttled to it. The rest of us drove 6 blocks to the Park and Ride which allowed us to park the car for $5.00 a day and use a 3 day pass ($14.00) on the train and busses -Chicago Transit Authority. We spent three days enjoying the downtown area of Chicago!
Then, returned at night to a quiet, comfortable place with exercise room and good pool.

Stayed here for 2 nights when our flights were cancelled to NY due to the hurricane. Got a great price for the first night, but second night went up steeply (weekends cheaper), so had to move to another hotel for remaining nights, sadly. Great first impression, and happy with our stay here. Shuttle to airport was great, which connected with trains to get downtown from airport (bus driver was fab!).

Wasn't intending to stay in Chicago, but loved it! Hope to come back one day.

We had to go to the Chicago area to see our military recently home from deployment family. What a great place to stay!! The hotel was luxuriously furnished and offered all the amenities you would want.
It is right next to the new casino and close to public transportation to get to the downtown Chicago area or Woodfield Mall.
We were very pleased with the room, food and kindness of all the hotel staff!! THeir outdoor courtyard was full of flowers and great places to enjoy the outdoors.
Will definitely stay there again.

Room Tip: I asked for a room facing River Road so that I wouldn't have to listen to expressway traffic!!

I stayed here for a night on my way to Las Vegas, booked using Marriott points.

On arrival at O'Hare I crossed the road for where the airport shuttles are supposed to pick up - unfortunately I didn't have the hotel number on my confirmation...so I waited for about 20 mins for the shuttle, eventually opting for a cab. The shuttle is green in colour and has Courtyard written on it [is not the Marriott one which is burgundy]. Anyway, was only a $12 cab.

On arrival at the hotel the front desk staff were very friendly and check in completed in a minute. Despite being a points redemption, the room I was given was a regular nice room on the 5th floor. There is free Wifi in the hotel and a coffee maker in the room which is perfect, especially if you are jet lagging. Just soaps for bathroom products so bring shampoos with you.

Although they do have a Bistro near reception which I believe serves food round the clock, for dinner I went to the Rivers Casino which is a 200m walk which has a few options for dinner. I went to the FLIPT burger joint which comes recommended for some good American food. Take a look on their site for other options to eat.

The hotel is pretty clean and has complimentary USA Today and local newspapers in reception. This is a very good option if you are looking for a cheap and clean place with good proximity to the airport. I did get up for a walk at 4.30am and noticed that there were a couple of customers with luggage in reception.

They do have a couple of computers in reception in case you have not brought one with you - there was no-one using them whenever I went through reception. You can print off boarding passes at a couple of other terminals and there is a big screen which has the status and departure times of flights departing from the airport.

My overall impression is very positive, probably because it is an airport hotel with good proximity [2-3kms from O'Hare], very clean but importantly not so large that it actually feels like an extension of the airport. If you are not using points then about $100 would be good value.

This was the perfect hotel for us, since we were visiting family in Des Plaines. What a bargain, as well, with breakfast included for under $100. Clean, plenty of facilities, free internet and parking. Very accessible to the airport, next door to the new casino, and enough sound-proofing to keep the highway noises away. (For those who complained about this noise, did you see how much quieter it was with the patio doors closed. Also, ask for a room away from that side of the hotel.) We'd go back, for sure.
Keep in mind that you'll have to work your way downtown for sight-seeing, but it's a pleasant drive through some great neighborhoods. Keep off the expressways - gridlock!

Room Tip: Ask for a room away from the expressway.

Stayed for 7 nights with my family in interconnecting rooms. Hotel staff were excellent - very helpful and friendly. Facilities were great with pool, gym and laundry all being used over the week. Shuttle service to train station and airport was always on time and driver was full of information on what to do and how to get there.
Food in and about the area was always easy to get and with varied demands always something for everybody.
Had difficulty printing event tickets on lobby printer and staff printed them for me on their office computer - customer service was paramount to one and all. Highly recommend this hotel and will be back without doubt.

There are better options (like resident inn Ohare which is even cheaper). Do not see any reason for someone to want and stay there since the property is on the freeway… you can here every truck passing by.
