Oyster Review Summary

Photos and Review by Oyster.com Investigators

Pros

Cons

  • 35-minute drive to downtown Chicago
  • Daily fee for Wi-Fi in the rooms
  • Nothing within walking distance

Bottom Line

There are two reasons to go to this 384-room convention hotel 35 minutes from downtown Chicago: business, and golf. The property is located directly on a golf course, and there's a big conference center for the various conventions held here throughout the year. There's not much to do in the surrounding area, so guests will need stay occupied on property with the two pools, tennis court, billiard room, quality 24-hour fitness center. Rooms are comfortable and chain-like, flat-screen TVs.
