Wow, very nice on entry, room looks awesome. Housekeeping good, and very impressed with the decor. Love it. However, falls short on power outlets. I mean there are NONE in the room to plug in your devices. What outlets there are have other things plugged in, like TV, lamps, clocks, etc. One outlet has USB ports on it...that is okay, but just not enough. There is an outlet at the desk, but way behind the TV which is very hard to get too! I do not understand how they could spend as much as they did on remodel, and not at least put in lamps with outlets, or desk outlets. Odd!
Also, HVAC is terrible. Newer looking control...but...my room was cold when I got here, turned the heat on, and did not work. :( Tried the fan on manual later, and did not work...I like fan on low to drown out all the noise from neighbors, and hallway.
Hallway is loud, all sounds come under the door, they need to have some sort of door noise blocker installed under the door, if at all possible. Other hotels just do not have this loud of noise.
Lights were not working in the shower, or above the sink.
I left my room at 4:30pm for dinner, and told the front desk, face to face, about the heat not working, and the lights not working. They said they would work on it.
When i got to my room at 10pm, lights were not working, nor was the HVAC.
Also, when I went into the bathroom later, I turned on the remaining lights in the bathroom and the GFI popped in the bathroom, and the remaining lights did not work. I reset the GFI, and it kept popping. I did not call down as it was my bedtime. I Will hopefully be able to see in the bathroom when I need it tonight.
I was also told I was upgraded to a Club room, so I expected something fairly spacious. The room was TINY! Very hard to get into bathroom, and around doors!. :(
Anyhow, I will not come back here again because of these issues. I will continue at the Westin in Downer's Grove.
