Ideal for quick visit to Chicagoland
Posted Nov 11, 2016
I was here only about 15 hours, as I was using this as a base for a trip to Chicago but wanting to avoid city traffic. I took the METRA into and out of Chicago for a football game at Guaranteed Rate Field, which is otherwise home of the White Sox. I had researched the transit system and found Joliet to be the easiest access point on and off Interstate 80 that also had a train station. The hotel has free valet parking and the rate was very reasonable for the quality of hotel. Given my short stay, I did not take advantage and can't comment on the casino, food, exercise room(/) or other amenities. The room was quite spacious and very clean and up-to-date. This includes the bathroom. The shower was in a traditional tub so those who can't easily manage to step over the tub lip might want to ask for a handicap accessible room.
