GREAT CITY HOTEL

Posted Apr 9, 2015
Pros: Easy access to the west suburbs and loop.
Location: Oak Park and River Forest are wonderful communities to visit, with terrific architecture and great shops.
It is easy to forget how really pleasant it is to stay in a classic hotel. Everything about the Carleton Oak Park is gracious and thoughtful. We loved the grill for breakfast...do not miss the eggs Benedict w/ lobster, a real surprise. Everyone, including maintenance people, were eager to help in any way they could. We will stay there again...it was an absolute treat.

Need to exit main entrance to another building

Posted Mar 21, 2015
Pros: Restuarant
Exit main building to motel like facility in cold weather. Very underwhelming. Restaurant OK.

In town for a concert. Stayed in the motel part

Posted Mar 16, 2015
Pros: Very charming. Staff was very friendly and helpful. Conviently located to restaurants for breakfast,lunch and dinner without moving the car.
Cons: Motel rooms could be updated. Coffee servers did not have cream or sugar.
Location: Great location lots of hisoric things to see including Frank Lloyd Wright buildings.
Probably would have been even happier if we stayed in the actual hotel. But the price of the motel suited our needs.

Another great stay

Posted Jan 17, 2015 on Hotels.com
I love staying here. The location is the greatest - walk to tons of cool shops and restaurants. The staff is personal and attentive. The rooms are nice for a 3-star hotel. Parking is free, but you may have to walk a short way uncovered to get in. Two decent places to eat on site - a nice steak place and a great neighborhood pub with a very impressive craft beer selection. I've been staying here regularly for about 4 years, and continue to recommend it.

Dependable

Posted Jan 13, 2015 on Hotels.com
Small room but that's what we requested. Very dim light in bathroom and generally cramped feel. Shower felt great. Temperature control in room was a bit squirrelly- often too hot or too cold. but maybe that's just part and parcel for climate control indoors during a Chicago winter. Lobby was very welcoming. Staff friendly. Would certainly stay in this hotel again.
