Not Happy w/construction

Completely under construction on the outside. We didn't know it was being remodeled until we got there. The windows to the 1st floor rooms were covered w/plastic so you could not see outside. Once we complained the Front desk changed our room to the 2nd flr overlooking the pool that was covered up with plastic (in June). What if I wanted to swim. Although there were thunderstorms. They also tried to make up for the construction by giving us vouchers for free breakfast at the cafe. The room inside was nice. It is exactly as it is on the pics. After the construction is over, it would be a nice place to stay.

I'm sure eventually it will be great...

This hotel is a good option if the hotel prices in central Chicago are a bit much, it's just a 15 minute train ride away. It's also on the shores of the lake, with a trail and a beach just over the other side of the highway. There is a little noise from the road when in your room, but it's not too bad. On the downside, the hotel is currently being renovated. The swimming pool was closed. To get to my room you had to walk down a corridor of scaffolding and plastic sheeting, and the window of my room was covered with plastic, which I really didn't find acceptable. The builders start at 7am, so if you're looking for a nice relaxing holiday lie in forget it. If you're thinking about booking this hotel you need to check how the renovations are going, I'm sure once they're finished this will be a much more pleasant experience. The advertised shuttle to the city is a nice idea, but don't rely on it, even after I checked with staff that it was available and specifically asked if there was room on it there were at least twice as many people waiting for it as there was room. I gave up after the first day and just took the train.

I would not recommend this hotel if you don't have a car. The public transport around the hotel is not efficient and the area is not recommandable.
