It’s time for another snapshot – this time focusing on the hotel experience at the Candlewood Suites in Schiller Park, near Chicago O’Hare.

I used Uber and Lyft to get to the Hotel. The hotel offers a local shuttle and a shuttle back to O’Hare on request.
Check-in was a quick process, with my documents checked and my card charged for the night and deposit.
The room is more a long stay studio, rather than a traditional hotel room. As such it has a microwave oven, countertop stove and dishwasher – as well as a bed, work table (without power outlets).
Power outlets under bed stand… good luck finding them…
Amenities included decaffeinated coffee and popcorn.
The bathroom had some items that were individually packed, as well as bulk shampoo, conditioner and body wash.
None of note – other than there was a lot of upgrading work going on in the hotel.
Check out was handled with ease, with my invoice handed to me on my way out.
The hold charge vanished that day, whilst the room charge remained as expected.
The full review soon!
