Traveled with my husband and 3 month old baby to stay in Schaumburg for a week. He was working there on a temporary assignment. It's not exactly the easiest hotel to find - we had to drive around a bit, googlemaps gave us roundabout directions, and the freeways right around there are confusing, too. But we found the place alright, got checked in.
The rooms are well-kept and clean, but the decor is awfully outdated. Lots of cheap brass, "oak," and dark earth tones. The couch and bed left much to be desired. The couch fabric was cheap and shiny, and it wasn't comfortable. The bed was also pretty uncomfortable. But I have back problems, so your mileage may vary...
I ate breakfast downstairs a few times. It was nothing to write home about. Lots of sugary pastries, cereal, juice, gummy eggs. Housekeeping did a great job. One day I was walking out the door with my son, and asked when housekeeping might get around to the 400 floor, so I could plan my day. The front desk offered to have my room done right away, so I could come back with my baby, and not be interrupted later on. Awesome.
A few days into the trip, I went to bake dinner in the oven...and then discovered... no oven. We asked at the front desk if there was an oven we could use. They offered to switch us to a different room, and since I didn't want to waste the food I couldn't bake, we agreed.
Although we booked for a week, my husband was done with his job early, and I started to come down with a cold. So we decided to skip town early. We thought we'd have to eat the remaining few days, but the hotel let us check out early, no problems.
Overall, I found the staff there to be really helpful and nice. The rooms were average, though. Best part - it's within walking distance of IKEA, along a nice little path. :-)
