SpringHill Suites Chicago O'Hare
Travel Blogs from Rosemont
I'm a few days into my travels, and it's been pretty good so far, although I don't really count this as the real start; at most, it is a "soft" start. Although I won't see the house I've lived in for 14 years, any of my friends or most of my possessions for who knows how long, I've been spending virtually every waking moment with my family since I …
We landed at Chicago and "Tel Aviv" told me "welcome to Chicago." I was in pretty good spirits since I had just had a nice flight, the hostess had been really nice, "Tel Aviv" had bee cool, I had gotten some nice pictures of the clouds and the airplane... all was good. And the Chicago O'Hare happened.
The first thing I see is luggage claim signs, and I figure that I should find my luggage so I can get it checked through again and I can get on my plane ...
... large, overpacked suitcases be under 50 pounds?!?!?! Turned out that MINE WAS 47 AND HER'S WAS 48!!! I swear people around us would have thought we won the lottery with the way we were cheering... Got through security (without any issues), and now we get to hang out and do nothing for 3 hours until our flight!!!!!!!!!..........These are the times I wish I was 21... My anxiety is growing and I'm ready to be on England soil. Well, here's to an 8 hour flight! :) ...
I didn't have much of a layover in Chicago. But I do remembering that when walking to my flight I saw a flight I Champaign. In my mind I was thinking, "That's like 15 minutes away from my home. I could just make a run for it and just go home." What was I thinking?!?! God has this amazing adventure in store for me! I got on that flight to London and didn't look back.

Historical Traveler Reviews SpringHill Suites Chicago O'Hare Rosemont
Excellent all aroun
Stayed here with my family: 3 year old daughter, wife, a friend, myself. Was extremely satisfied. The front desk staff were very friendly and helpful. When my wife ask for the nearest church, they actually went out of their way to print a few of the nearby churches from the website. Breakfast was excellent all around. The room was adequate, cleaned daily and very quiet. The location, while not downtown, is actually a short drive (about 15-20 minutes) to downtown Chicago and the drive was often easy. For its price it is definitely a good value. I will definitely stay here again on our next visit to Chicago. Kudos to the staff!
Very nice hotel for a great price. We were in the Chicago area for business, staying the weekend for fun. SpringHill fit well into our budget and the free parking was a plus. We booked on-line for a "LARGE STUDIO SUITE" with 2 double beds and a pull-out couch since we weren't sure if 2 or 3 of us would be making the trip - this way we all had our own bed (2 of us ended up going). Our total cost per night with tax was $113.
We recently stayed at the SpringHill Suites and found it an excellent value. We paid $89 for a weekend stay and was worth every dollar. The hotel had a free shuttle to/from airport; free parking; free breakfast and laundry on premises. The staff was very helpful as well. The location was convenient to a few restaurants as well as Dominick's, an upscale grocery store with a deli and takeout. We walked to the train station about half a mile away--the staff offered to have the shuttle drop us off as well. It does seem like a distance so if you are not a walker you might want to have the shuttle drop you off. There is also a park and ride at the train stop. The blue line train takes about 30 mins to get into the Loop. It also goes directly to O'Hare if you are going the other direction. The room itself was very pleasant with a small microwave and small refrigerator.
We stayed at Springhill Suites Chicago O'Hare May 20-23 at an $89 a night weekend rate, which included free parking and free breakfast!! It is an excellent value. The staff were very helpful and friendly. There is an Outback Steakhouse right off the lobby and plenty of free parking. The hotel also provides free shuttle service to and from the airport if you don't rent a car. The room was very clean and had a king size bed, a separate area with a sofabed and chair and a kitchen area with a microwave and small refrigerator and sink. I had asked to have a smoke free room near an elevator and my request was fulfilled. We had a few minor problems during our stay - the first was getting our room made up on Saturday. We had gone out for the day and when we returned at 4:00 the room still wasn't made up. I called down and we went out to dinner, and the room was cleaned beautifully when we returned. We had wanted to use the pool Saturday night but was told it was closed. The clerk finally told us a guest had thrown up in the pool and it had to be closed to be cleaned. And Saturday night about 2:30 am there were a few drunken guests in the hallways arguing. I guess you can't control your guests' behavior, but it was annoying.
Very nice except for noises
Very, very nice, except for I believe my room was above the hotel laundry room and there were quite annoying sounds and vibrations in the room until midnight each night. Otherwise, outstanding.
We stayed at the Springhill Suites O'hare airport the night before flying out of O'hare. We were very impressed with the front desk staff who were friendly, and eager to help while processing our check-in very efficiently. Our room was meticulously maintained as were the lobby and public restrooms by the gift shop. We ate dinner at theOutback which is adjoining the hotel. Both the food and the service were great. The hotel has a free shuttle to the airport every half hour and one that brings you back to the hotel. I just can't say enough good things about the Springhill Suites housekeeping, front desk and shuttle service. We stayed there during a blizzard in January and were pleased that the parking was in a garage and not outdoors. Will stay at this hotel again for sure and strongly reccommend it to others.
I arrived at this hotel this past Thanksgiving night and stayed three nights with my wife and ten year old daughter. For $69/night I was very pleased. I'll get straight to the point with my thoughts:
Really Liked This Hotel
We had a quiet suite with bed area, sitting area, and a kitchen with fridge, sink, and microwave. There was high-speed internet. Very impressed with the long breakfast buffet. Short walk to the blue line saves you lots and lots of money because you don't have to pay for parking downtown. Exercise room on premises.
This is a great all-suite hotel for the money. We stayed in a corner suite on the executive level which cost the same as any other room available (found it online) and was 50-feet larger than the standard suite. There is a 'separate' living area with a kitchenette which is really nice when you have kids staying with you. The rooms are well decorated and clean. The beds were not very comfortable but I cannot complain much due to the price. The continental breakfast is worthwhile and the staff is friendly. There is limited parking above ground (the underground garage cannot accomodate cars over 6 feet high) due to an Outback Restaurant on the hotel property. The blue line station is about a 10 minute walk from the hotel which is a nice option because getting to the city takes 1/2 hour when there is traffic. Also, the Shaumburg shopping area is a 10-15 minute drive from the hotel.
Overall great choice
we stayed 3 nights last fall and have only great things to report. the suite was clean, large enough for 4 adults, the continental breakfast was the best we've ever had, the pool was adequate, free secure parking and right off the expressway. suite was quiet and price was awesome then ($86/nt expedia). near blue line. we'd stay again!
