We discovered this hotel by accident and are so happy we did! We have never been so impressed with a hotel before. We were in for the Rolling Stones concert at United Center and decided downtown hotel prices were way too expensive. Jamie warmly greeted us and provided us with maps to the Glen Ellyn Metra station, information on free public parking, and directions to the nearest ATM. We wish we could have stayed longer! We will tell all our friends and family who frequently travel to the Chicago area about our experience at this hotel!

This inn has all the charm of a bed and breakfast with even more of the luxury of a five star hotel in the city. The staff is outstanding, and the rooms are beautiful. The location is near man fine dining restaurants, but they also have a beautiful restaurant on location. A surprising treat for a college campus. OUr favorite for a special night away.

Room Tip: Enjoy dinner at Waterleaf, outstanding addition to an evening.

As a regular business traveler, I frequent many full service hotels (including Marriott, Hilton, Starwood brands). Please know that the Inn at Water's Edge is the real deal. The hotel, while small (6 rooms) and part of the college hospitality program, has the charm of a bed and breakfast, with the conveniences and ameneties of a modern full service hotel. My room was very clean, spacious, with high ceiling. Also had flat screen HD-TV, conference phone, reliable internet, comfortable bedding, and long bay windows/doors which overlook water. The bathroom is very spacious and clean, all marble and tile, with a full walk-in shower that was spa-like. All rooms are on the 3rd floor, which is secure, and requires a elevator key access. Continental breakfast offering is included in the rate, and was very nice as well. Because there are only 6 rooms, the staff is very attentive to each guest. Unfortunately, I did not have the opportunity to sample the restaurant, which is part of the "Hospitality program" at College of DuPage, but was a very impressive looking facility. Whether you are travelling for recreation, or for business at the college or the surrounding area, I would highly recommend this property. I would change nothing about this hotel.
