We stayed at the Crowne Plaza Glen Ellyn Lombard for 2 nights (a Friday and Saturday) in May, 2009. We chose this location because we didn't want to pay so much to stay (and park) in downtown Chicago, and wanted someplace with a nice indoor pool. We were not disappointed - can't say enough great things about this place!
We were *extremely* pleased with the clean, fresh, modern decor of everything, as well as the friendly staff. Our room was impeccably clean and the bed/linens were incredibly comfy! Literally, the ONLY issue during our stay was that the switch in the bathroom to turn on the fan and shower light did not work. It wasn't that important to us, so we didn't report it until we were checking out, so I can't comment as to how fast it would have been fixed.
I used the pool once (in the morning around 8 AM) and it was very inviting and clean, plus I had it all to myself. I didn't use the fitness center, but walked by it on the way to the pool and it looked very nice.
There is no breakfast included at this hotel, but they did give us a 15% off coupon for the Glen Prairie restaurant which is attached. We looked at the menu and thought it looked good, but did not end up going there. Instead, we tried Maxfield's Pancake House (just down the street) and were very pleased with that.
Be aware that using the wireless internet in the room will cost you $9.99 per 24 hours. We found it to have good signal strength and speed in our room.
