The location of the hotel is odd - more of an industrial type of location. Near car dealership and some not so great restaurants and apartments. You have to drive a few miles to get to a decent restaurant (other than the hotel restaurant). Does not look like an area you'd want to walk around. But if you drive a few miles, you can get to tons of restaurants. Woodfield Mall was about 10-15 minutes away in traffic. Probably would take less time without traffic.
The rooms were very nice and spacious. We had a sitting area with a separate bedroom (with a door). We had a refrigerator, microwave and bar sink. Comfortable beds and nice furniture. Awesome very large walk in shower with 3 shower heads. Great bathroom. Plenty of room. The hotel is decorated in a boutique style. Modern and comfortable. They had a very nice indoor pool and gym. **My only issue is that it seems so new that there was still "new carpet smell". The smell/fumes irritated my lungs (I have asthma/reactive airways, so I am particularly sensitive to that). It was bad enough that it bothered my husband and son (who don't have breathing problems) too. We had to open the windows and keep them open the whole night. The temperature was in the 40s, and I hated to waste energy with open windows and a heater, but we had to. I would not have been able to sleep in the room otherwise. Once the windows were open for a while, I was fine. I think they need to air out the newly done rooms for a few days to get rid of the chemical/new carpet fumes. I would have rated the room "excellent" if not for the fumes.
