“Perfection”
Reviewed 4 August 2013

My son and I travelled to Glen Ellyn for a baseball tournament and decided to make it a father-son weekend in the Chicago area. We were lucky enough to find the Inn on Water's Edge on Trip Advisor.

This hotel is just perfect. It is part the DuPage College's School of Hospitality. The staff are well trained and enthusiastic students. The service is absolutely excellent. The rooms are elegantly designed and very comfortable. Everything makes for a memorable, relaxing stay. Highly, highly recommended.

The Inn at Water's Edge is the proverbial hidden gem. The hotel is first class all the way. Most important are the people who consistently go the extra mile to make sure all guests are completely happy. The small number of rooms gives the hotel an intimate feel. The restaurant offers fine dining and service to match. I believe the operation takes its spirit for excellence from Jamie Fredericks, Assistant Manager. She is professional, helpful and friendly.

Me and my wife celebrated our 25th wedding anniversary. This is a great hotel to stay. From the time we check in Samantha took us to our room and showed us everything. The room is very nice. The bathroom is all marble and there was a walk in shower. the bed was very soft and the pillows were very comfotable. There was also a view of the lake from our window and it was also nice because you can open the window and let the breeze in. There was a note on the table from the manager wishing us on our anniversary and there was also champagne in our room when we arrived. Breakfast was verynice and the selection was great. I would recommend this place for couples who wants time for themselves.

This is the second time my wife and I have stayed at your hotel. We will be back again and again. The accommodations are extraordinary and the customer service is exceptional! The affordability of it all makes it a gem of a find! We have decided to make this our in-state get-away a minimum of once a month. Keep up the good work students, you are well on your way!

We were going to a graduation party in the afternoon in Glenn Ellyn and decided to get a room for the night.It was also our 21st wedding anniversary.We saw the great reviews for the INN at Water's Edge and gave them a call.We checked in late on Saturday 6-8.Around 7:30.Samantha(the girl at the front desk) could not have been any nicer.

The room was excellent.Large comfortable bed,great pillows.The rooms overlook a pond.Very nice view.The bathroom is large,marble sink.Huge walk in shower.The manager also left us a handwritten note,congratulating us on our anniversary and gave us a bottle of Champagne to celebrate.The continental breakfast in the morning was nice.Looking forward to having an excuse to go back.This hotel was well worth the $115 we spent for a Saturday night.

We were referred by a friend and were extremely happy with the accommodations. We tried the "brunch" package and would highly recommend both the hotel and the restaurant (Waterleaf). The rooms were lovely (remote controlled blinds pleased even my husband) and well appointed. We could open the french doors to hear the sounds of the water feature which we overlooked, which was a nice touch. The breakfast was delicious (homemade yogurt and homemade granola were fantastic) and the brunch at Waterleaf was awesome! A great anniversary stay.

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!
