Stayed at the Q center for a training. Overall the location was a bit out the way but the conference center was very nice. Rooms are a little small but the food was great. Overall I think my 3 day stay was just enough. Wouldn't mind going back if needed.

I stayed at the Q Center for a conference. I understand that this big building/set of buildings was once a college. The rooms were small, but very adequate for my needs. My bed was really comfortable and I usually struggle to feel comfortable in most hotel type situations. I slept great! The best part was that the standard room rate...

Training facilities are excellent and staff is very helpful. Food is average...similar to a college cafeteria and not up to the standard that most traveling executives would expect. Rooms are small and need updating. About an hour from O'Hare.

What can I say about this ridiculously atrocious "training center"? The conditions you are subjected to as a training participant are probably worse than prison standards. Rooms - In these teeny tiny, 6 foot wide by 8 foot long cells, you do not even get the smallest sense of personal space or privacy. The bed is a joke, not even...

Very clean. Single rooms are super small. Iron and ironing board in room. Included meals are buffet style. Nice variety. Snacks provided. Gym on site. It's a little on the expensive side but worth it because you don't have to rent a car, worry about traffic or parking, or getting lost if CCN is paying for the ride from the...

The single rooms have a twin bed, tiny bathroom, but well maintained. It is not within walking distance to any shopping or restaurants you need your own car or taxi to get around, is about 45 miles from O'Hare and is an hour trip or longer depending on traffic conditions to get to this center.

Stayed in mid-level upgraded room. Plenty of space, had A/C problems that the staff was eventually able to fix. Have the feeling the issue was an exception, not the rule. Staff was very pleasant. Cafeteria style food was very good. Grounds are beautiful. Thoroughly enjoyed my stay.

Competitive rates, sizeable campus and massively attentive staff are what earned this review the Excellent rating. My company hosted a meeting with 75 attendees last week. Given the fact this facility was new for our team, our expectations were mixed. I'm happy to say most, if not all attendees were pleased. Kudos to Traci and Christi who really stepped up...

OK, the room size surprises everybody that is not aware of it. But c'mon, we're there not to sleep, but to learn and get together and meet people from everywhere! Meals are amazingly well served, a true feast 3 times a day!

I visited the Q Centre in November 2014 to attend a week long Employer Training Program and I would surely say it was a wonderful experience. The quality of training facilities, the convenient and comfortable rooms, the lavish meals and the tranquil natural campus surroundings altogether make up for a relaxing and refreshing experience. The bicycle rides and the walk...
