Read the reviews here and decided to stay at the CP. No regrets. It is newly remodeled with a very comfortable decor. Try the restaurant. Staff was very helpful and accommodating.

We were not sure the CP would meet our expectations as we had very bad experiences with them at their Manchester(England) Airport hotel. However, this refurbed former Holiday Inn was very nice with comfortable suites. Only negative to the suites is that there is no door or barrier between common area and bedroom, so a bit noisey. All else was great! Good for businessmen and weekenders....

Thank you for taking the time to send out a review. We are glad you enjoyed your stay, I would like you to know that we do have three different suite types, you stayed in our parlor suite which does not have a door between the living room and bedroom, next time please ask to stay in a CEO suite. The CEO suites do have that door between the bedroom and the living room. We look forward to your return.

The hotel decor is "prairie", a light and natural design. The rooms were updated 3 years ago and are clean and comfortable. We had a king size bed. It was a little soft for me (we have a Tempurpedic at home), but it was not uncomfortable. The linens were comfortable. The bathroom was small and had NO FAN, so it fogged up very quickly when one took a shower. Air conditioning worked well. There was a room safe that was very handy for wallet, jewelry, Ipad, etc. The indoor pool is large and heated, with skylights and glass walls. There is also a small work-out room. The hotel provides filtered water dispensers on every floor so you can fill up your cup or container. Also, free morning coffee in the lobby, various newspapers. The restaurant is good, too.

Room Tip: Our room on the first floor was very convenient to the lobby, restaurant, and pool. It was not noisy...

I stayed five nights here in mid-May 2012 on the third floor, ate breakfast each morning at the Glen Prairie restaurant attached to the hotel, and made use of the free shuttle service to Wheaton College for the first two days. I called the hotel ahead of time and got advice on a flat-rate taxi from ORD for $40 through AD&S taxi service. At the end of the week, AD&S was booked up so I took 303 Taxi service for $44 from Wheaton College, thanks to the desk manager at the hotel. By the way, AD&S was a better, friendlier service for less; they're a private taxi service only two years old but have a history of service in Chicago and the Southwest US.

Breakfast was great--included in my hotel price. They provided a buffet with breads and muffins, pancakes, eggs, sausage, bacon, and hash browns. The hotel had a social time from 5:30-6:30 in the main lounge where free wine, beer, soda, and snackfoods were available.

Several eating places were available in walking distance: Culver's, Subway, a Greek restaurant, a few others. K-Mart is almost across the street. To go to nicer restaurants and malls, it's a short 10-minute drive up the street. You can see my reviews of those restaurants and others on Tripadvisor.

The room was comfortable with firm, cushioned beds, flat screen TV, and well-pressured shower. All was clean. Some might find the size bathroom disappointing, but I didn't think it was too small for comfort.

I love this hotel and have stayed about five times. It is clean, large, and the bedding is amazing. The hotel itself is very modern and sleek. It's near a ton of shopping and food. The staff at this location is always helpful and friendly. I also really enjoy the hotel bar/ restaurant the food is always wonderful. Great pool and fitness center.

No complaints except that the walls seemed a little on the thin side, could hear people passing in the hall a little too clearly, and flushing toilets in the rooms nearby. The room itself, the pool and fitness center are nice. Helpful staff.
