We stayed here in October 2012 for my partners 30th birthday. Check in was not until 3pm, however, we arrived at 7am after a long flight-we had emailed ahead to let the hotel now this and asked if we could leave our bags until check in. They did one better and actually checked us in, which was great as we needed to get over the jet lag! The room was small, but adequate, and was very clean, the bed was really comfy and the hotel is in a quiet area, so no outside noise. The area is about half hour train ride from central Chicago, however the actual area the hotel is wonderful. We spent loads of time in the area, there is plenty of shops and restaurants, its just a nice place to wonder about. I would recommend the restaurant attached to the hotel for breakfast and dinner, We had the most amazing dinner there, the best lobster I have ever ate! We would stay in the hotel again and would recommend it to anyone who does not mind a wee train ride into Chicago.
