This was a great place to spend with the grandson after his graduation from Boot Camp. Plenty of space to sit and have conversations. Coffee , tea, and water are always available in the lobby. We would recommend other families make this the place to stay for just this type of occasion. Our room faced the parking lot, was quiet and clean.

This is one of the better run hotels that I've stayed at in some time. I'm a Hilton Diamond member and a Marriott Gold member, so I all but live in hotels. The customer service here is on the same level as a Ritz Carlton, and I'm not exaggerating. When I checked in the front desk was on the phone with what was likely an elderly person. The level of service this person gave was refreshing to listen to (directions, calculating the hotel rate with tax, etc...). Since I checked in around noon I deci... Read more

Great value for the money. Was able to get to various locations with ease. Grounds were very well kept and hotel staff was great. We were only there for a few days and had to go to Chicago for the balance of our stay. Should have booked another Hilton Garden Inn instead of the hotel we did book. Probably would have been much better off.

Hilton Garden Inns are typically a good hotel for business travelers. This hotel is average in that category. The hotel is starting to show its age and some of the room appointments are overdue for refurbishment and update. The hotel staff seems to be busy and preoccupied with other work and seem to be indifferent to the hotel guests.

The rooms were clean, beds were comfortable, lobby was nice and the staff member that checked us in was extremely friendly. There was a nice lobby bar and in the morning options for coffee and breakfast were available. The carpet in the room was a little outdated which I thought was strange seeing at a Hilton. I wouldn't say this hotel is nearly as nice as the Palmer house Hilton, but for a hotel in the suburbs and not the city, it was the best value. I always know that with the Hilton chain... Read more

Everything about staying here was very positive - the staff was helpful, the room was clean, the hotel had all the amenities I could ask for and the price was good. It gets a mediocre review because the odd number rooms face the freeway which is just a few blocks away and is quite noisy when trying to sleep. If you go, ask for an even-numbered room that doesn't face the freeway.

Stayed here overnight for my B-Day. The room was nice and plush. Actually wished we could have stayed and enjoyed the room more but we were only in town for one night. So we had to enjoy the town. Small warning..... this hotel is at least an hour away from downtown Chicago. I'm always OK with that, I like to be in a quiet less busy location when it comes to my sleep and rest. Overall very nice hotel.

This hotel has everything that someone needs. Good for the price, has all necessary things for a good rest and experience. Recommend the breakfasts, very good. The better rooms are the ones located with the view of the parking lot. The other has some noice from the road.

We had a family event to attend in Lake Bluff, and this hotel was convenient and pleasant. We will stay here when we visit the area again. It was clean and well-appointed, the staff was friendly and welcoming, our room was quiet and nice. I just wish they had an extended-arm mirror in the bathroom for doing makeup/seeing back of hair. Other than that, it was a 10!

We have stayed here several times and always enjoyed it. The noise from the highway is not bad especially if you're on the opposite side.The rooms are always new and fresh and the service is very good. The breakfast is especially nice, including friendly service. The exercise room doesn't have any weight machines, which is unfortunate but they do have some small barbells.

Staff at reception desk were friendly. Wonderful staff. Very polite, helpful staff. Clean rooms. Great location! Near restaurants and shops. Cookies in the evening were bonus. Will definitely stay there again.

Have stayed here many times and the staff is extremely friendly, professional and helpful. But the beds seem to be declining in quality. The first time I ever stayed at this hotel, I thought it was the most comfortable bed I had ever slept it - honestly. But the sleep number apparatus simply doesn't work any more! Both in my room and my daughter's room the beds were boards and we could not adjust them.
