Time for another snapshot – this time looking at the Crowne Plaza O’Hare.
For those of you who are new to the blog:
- Trip Reports – These are full deep-dive reports taking you into the experience and the small things… as well as the big things!
- Snapshots – These are bite-sized reviews that show you the basic product in some nice gentle headlines (and normally, only images shot on the phone)
You can either use a shuttle bus or a taxi/Uber to get there from O’Hare.
The hotel is on North River Road, a short walk away from Rosemont CTA station for those who are walking inclined. I cheated and used a Uber to avoid the Chicago Taxi Mafia (and the evil looks you get for daring to take a short trip, rather than an expensive trip downtown).
Two towers and pretty way easy place to find.
Check-in was an easy process, with my details confirmed (including an identity check) and my request for a high floor/near the lifts confirmed.
An offer of a drink or bonus points were offered. I took the points.
A pretty standard room, with a big queen sized bed.
The bathroom was well stocked too
The bed was firm and comfortable, whilst the sofa was way too comfortable to get off of after a transatlantic flight.
Not utilised. The hotel is equipped with a restaurant, coffee shop and gift shop on-site. I chose to enjoy the local delights of instant noodles from Walgreens instead.
Check out was handled quickly and efficiently, with everything billed to the credit card.
With that paperwork done. I was allowed to go on my way to the next hotel.
The full review soon!
