Rated 4 out of 5 by lewis29 comfortable and clean room
though the room was great and clean, the food was not that good. the first morning we ate in the club lounge. there was only 1 hot item, tiny rolls with very little bacon egg and cheese on them. so the next morning we paid full price to eat downstairs and all were very disappointed with spending that much money for eggs and sausage, bacon and a couple of other items. no waffles or biscuits and gravy. not as much as I have seen with most continental breakfasts. very disappointing, we should have went out for breakfast and saved a ton of money. thanks to housekeeping they did a great job as did the front desk.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Kirk00 A surprise at O'Hare
When we booked this hotel I was skeptical since it is at a major airport. However, the exceptionalism of this Sheraton has convinced me to stay here again on my next trip to Chicago. This Sheraton is well maintained, very clean, with excellent food and amenities. The fitness center is much better than your usual hotel health club. The shuttle service to/from O'Hare is frequent and on time. **Note: Ramiro, one of the shuttle drivers, not only provided great shuttle service, but also enhanced our Chicago visit with his Chicago area expertise. He guided us on a memorable trip with his advice on restaurants, sights, shopping, and museums. He is an exceptional assett for this hotel.

The first room smelled like an ashtray and we had to change to a different room.
We arrived late and there was no food available at the hotel, had to get a cab ride to Subway for a bite to eat !

Rated 3 out of 5 by Jagged45 Good nights stay, bad check-in
I have stayed at this hotel before and like it very much. All of the rooms are suites and it is far enough away from O'Hare that the airplane noise is not a problem.
The rooms have always been clean and the beds comfortable and the club lounge is one of the better in the Sheraton chain.
The staff was courteous and very professional except for one, the young lady who checked me in.
When I arrived I asked if a room upgrade
had been applied (I'm Platinum and we are supposed to get upgraded to best available room at check-in). I told her that I was in need of a very quiet room so that I could get a very needed good nights sleep.
She told me I was on the 3rd floor (out of 11 floors) by the street. I asked if I could have a high floor (top if possible) not on
the street and far from the elevator. She then told me that all of the rooms on the top floors were sold out!
I knew this wasn't true. I checked with reservations right before arriving and knew that lots of rooms were available on the club floors (10 and 11). I was also told by the shuttle driver as well as a man that greeted me in the lobby that the hotel was only about half full.
After my persistence she finally gave in and found me a room on the 11th floor. Early the next morning, I could see that there were at least ten open rooms on the 11th floor and that much or more on the 10th.
At check-out, I told the man at the front desk about my stay, how it was great except for the lack of honesty at check-in.
He apologized, confirmed that they were not sold out and could not explain or understand why I was treated that way.
I will stay at this hotel again because other than this one person the rest of the staff are wonderful and the hotel fits my needs as to cleanliness, comfort and quietness but if I run into this problem again, there are plenty of other nice hotels in the O'Hare area that I can use for future stays.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Bern66 Wait until Renovation is over
Stayed here one night January 2012. Started by waiting for over 45 minutes for the shuttle bus from O'hare (every other bus picked up 2 or 3 times by the time the Sheraton arrived). Major renovation going on at this hotel. Entire lobby and atrium is blocked off by black plastic as it is gutted to concrete slab. I believe some of the rooms have been renovated. But most have not and they are about 8 years past due. Many people who were staying more than one night were checking out to go somewhere else. Staff seemed very disenterested and extremely slow. As a part of the renovation they have set up some type of ventialation system which involved most ot the out side windows on one floor being open with plastic tubes hanging out making a constant and very loud flapping sound. Honestly should have just shut down this property while they renovate. Very bad brand experience.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Business29 Disgusting Hotel
The hotel was terrible - rooms were cheaply furnished and dirty. Beds were disgusting - I almost wished I had one of those lights to view the bedspread. The staff was very friendly except for someone apparently in security who roamed the hotel and asked me THREE times in one day if I was a guest at the hotel. There were no electrical outlets in the room - I had to buy an extension cord. AND when it was pouring rain they parked the empty shuttle in under the overhang in front so guests coming in had to unload in the rain. The front desk staff was delightful - they should look for other jobs.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Tammy10 Wonderful hotel with outstanding staff!!
I have been staying here for work for the last 6+ years. I cannot say enough about how everyone makes you feel welcome. A special call-out to the front desk - Narda and Sue! Also, Rey and Danny are the best drivers and concierge staff you will ever find in a hotel. Johann came to my rescue and fixed my clock and was fabulous and so courteous and pleasant. Mario and Jim take care of us at the bar and Colleen and Maria make coming to the restaurant a pleasure. From Tim, the GM to Brandon in Sales, my stays are always top-notch!! Wouldn't stay any where else!!
Congratulations on a great team!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by GKman471 Thanks
I booked this room for my girlfriend because she missed her flight at O'hare. I paid for it using my credit card and I wasn't there. The reservations gave me some prices and I asked if they had any specials. They had a pre-paid rate. Saved $20. They took my cc number and said to call the front desk. I had to electronically fill out an authorization card so I could pay for my girlfriends room without being there. The staff was busy so it took a while but they got it to me. When my girlfriend arrived, the staff greeted her and she had NO PROBLEMS!! Thanks to the front desk staff!! You rock

Rated 3 out of 5 by Concerned4U2 Best Wishes Sheraton Chicago O'Hare Airport
Since my tenure in the Airline Industry with a few jobs over two decades, I have always enjoyed SPG/Starwood Hotels for my personal needs. The Sheraton Chicago O'Hare Airport (former Sheraton Gateway) was one of the best properties I have been to in terms of quality, ambience & food. Even formal preparations and check-in were usually enjoyable there!
Unfortunately this specific stay was "riddled with holes" of unusual difficulties which were disappointing for the first time. I wish you better in the future Sheraton O'Hare! Thank you!

Rated 3 out of 5 by PrincessK8 Great room near the airport
The room I stayed in at this hotel was great! I could tell that everything had been recently renovated and it felt very comfortable and clean. Great place to sleep near the airport - with the rental car return right across the street. Very convenient for me as I was leaving on an early morning flight.
The restaurant was the main detractor for this property. The seating is in the center of a large atrium, which ended up feeling very cold and unwelcoming. I decided to have room service instead.
I also had a problem with the internet service. I could connect, but then nothing would work. It wasn't crucial, so I didn't report the issue.
All the staff I interacted with were quite pleasant. I would stay here again.

I highly recommend this hotel. I was stranded in Chicago for the night and decided to stay at this hotel. As a platinum member, I was used my Starwood points and was able to relax in comfort at this hotel. Hamid, the General Manager, was courteous, professional, and very patient. I really appreciate his service and commend him for doing an excellent job while he was managing the desk by himself on a chaotic night. He booked me a room on the 11th floor with access to the Club Lounge. This is an example of excellent service and I recommend all guests to consider this hotel.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Jamie Everything great except for parking
I stay at this horel once a quarter for a conference, and ever time I stay here, 2 things happen:
1. The room and the hotel are prefect. Comfortable beds, everything is clean - it's all good.
2. The gate to the parking lots doesn't work right. Every time, there are people piled up in the exits trying to get the gate to go up. I fed my pre-validated parking card into the machine 5 times and it never went up - I finally punched the help button and they raised it.
That's it - one little complaint on my way out. But it is the same every time, so I took away 1 start.

Rated 2 out of 5 by JAF1013 Not able to sleep all night due to heater & no Platinum breakfast offered
So my spouse and I stayed here 12/29 -12/30. We had settled in and after a while, late at nite of course, there was a loud sound coming from the wall. We didn't sleep much that night and did advise front desk while checking out. We were told we would get extra points for the inconvienience (don't remember the amount).
Also we asked about us being offered breakfast since I was a Platinum member and were told that was not included and we were not eligible. Worst service I've received at a Sheraton and am not happy. Will be contacting SPG corporate directly.

Good shuttle service to the airport, easy check in/out. Room size was huge - nice desk area if you need to get some work done and loved that a fridge was included (very convenient for leftover deep dish pizza). Bed was huge and very comfortable - great night's sleep. Nice and quiet.

Rated 5 out of 5 Great Stay and Staff
I missed my flight to Tokyo and was put up at the airport Sheraton for the night. Upon checking in the staff asked what brought me to Chicago, and I informed them I missed my connection and was not too happy with the airlines. Within 15 minutes of getting to the room I received a desert and a note from the front desk staff (Sue, Jen and Jinal) to brighten my spirits. Completely unexpected but greatly appreciated gesture! The great staff was followed up by a very clean, modern, and comfortable room. Great hotel and highly recommended for business travelers!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Robin01 Outstanding
I am a flight attendant for a major airline for 24 years, and I have stayed in a lot of hotels over the years. Some were good and some not so good. I commute from CO and work out of Chicago therefore when I stay in hotels in Chicago it is at my expense. So I always look for good deals.
When I arrived at this Sheraton hotel I was amazed at the quality hotel. The rooms are all suites with a bar area, seating area with a flat screen tv, a very comfortable king size bed with a second flat screen tv and a very retro up to date bathroom and decor throughout the suite. It was clean, comfortable and roomy.
The staff was very courteous and attentive to each guest. I highly recommend this hotel to anyone. You will be very happy you stayed there.

Rated 4 out of 5 by NoName2013 This hotel...
In general the place is exactly what you expect from a hotel. I was there for a conference.
Probably the biggest disappointment was the wireless internet for which they charge $9.95, especially since I have stayed at other Sheraton and it worked well. It will work in the lounge area of the room, but not in the bedroom. Also, the speed was horrible when I was conencted that I could not remote connect to my work. Their IT oncall support staff were useless and informed me that someone would contact me in the next couple of hours...no call received.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Yogi Great O'Hare Hotel
This is not a new hotel, but its rooms are very well appointed - large front "suites" - comfortable furniture and beds - the only draw back is rather small bathroom.
The staff is super friendly (some seemed to be new to the property) but all were helpful.
Not much by way of platinum recognition - but this is a small matter for business travel.
The food at the hotel is fine - although the large open atrium makes for a rather loud and not too intimate experience.
Easy to get to and from Chicago O'Hare.
I liked this hotel and would return.

Rated 3 out of 5 by VeryGoodPointsStacey Average Sheraton
The Sheraton O'Hare Airport location is just an average Sheraton. There's nothing really wrong with the hotel, but it lacks the amenities that would make it a great hotel. In particular, the hotel is in need of renovations - which are slated to take place in Sept 2011 - March 2012. After the renovations, the hotel might be more appealing to business travelers.
The hotel food options aren't so great - the restaurant is less than adequate - but if you have a car, there are some good choices nearby.
The hotel is an all-suite hotel, so that's helpful for families or groups. And parking was relatively cheap for Chicago hotel parking. A nice plus if you have a car.
Overall, the hotel was okay - but I'd love to see what it's like after renovations.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Bananapie You saved my life !
I checked in at the hotel unexpectedly due to a flight cancellation and i called the hotel front desk to see if the hotel restaurant is still open. She said the restaurant will close in five minutes and there are no restaurants opened in the area. When i got there, she had the hotel restaurant put together a plate for me and she personally delivered it to my room with a thankyou card. I cannot more happy. She is truly a savior. She is the the girl with brown hair, glasses and a very welcoming smile. Her name is either Ovii, Samea or Cieciy

Rated 2 out of 5 by Erica31 Airport Shuttle
We initially had a bad experience when we entered our room and it smelt very smokey. However, we went back to the front desk and we were upgraded rooms and treated excellently.
We were not impressed with the airport shuttle, which is the reason we stayed there.The driver of our shuttle to the airport was rude and put off that we were flying internationally so we had to go a different terminal than the other guests. On our return flight, our plane was delayed over 7 hours and when we called to get a shuttle to pick us up, no one answered so we had to pay for a taxi to get back to the hotel to get our car. When we arrived back, we couldn't get out the the parking area with our ticket and were asked to pay so I had to run inside and get that fixed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Austonian Convenient Location to O’hare
OVERALL IMPRESSION: I recommend this property to travelers who need access to O’hare or who are looking for a more economical choice in the greater Chicago area. This Sheraton is located at O’hare and you can take the hotel shuttle to the CTA Blue Line (train) which is about 2 mi away. From there, you can take the train into the city (45 min).
SPG RECOGNITION: I believe all rooms are technically suites, but SPG Platinum members will receive high floor and breakfast in the morning.
THE ROOM: I found the room to be consistent with the Sheraton Suites brand. Furnishings and decore are a little older, but for the price, this hotel is still a good value.
EXCEEDED EXPECTATIONS: Location to O’hare and shuttle services.
DID NOT MEET EXPECTATIONS: None

Rated 5 out of 5 by Mom58 Bachlorette Party
We only stayed one night as the central location for everyone to meet for a bachlorette party. We loved the room, great space in bedroom in back and living room up front with everything you could need. We requested a table and chairs for a project in the room and it was delivered on time. We had 9 people in the room at one point and had plenty of space in the living room to enjoy cocktails and food. After everyone left, we enjoyed the comfortable beds and relaxed atmosphere. I would definitely come back here instead of a hotel in the city with the ridiculous prices and small rooms. We did not care about the view, just plenty of room, comfort and great price. We got all three and more here.
Great staff and hotel!! Thanks for making the night perfect.

It was freezing out and the bus shuttle was not showing up at O'Hare, so I had to take a taxi to the hotel. This was the second time that's happened, both times were between 11 PM to Midnight. I had a very early wake up call which never came. Luckily I woke up on my own and rushed to get on the shuttle in time to make my flight. I didnt have time to stop at the desk and let them know about the wake up call. That's also happened to me before at this hotel. If I stay here again, I'll set my phone alarm just in case.

Rated 3 out of 5 by ShoshaMan Getting Long in the Tooth
It is obvious this hotel is suffering from some wear and tear over the years. Although the rooms were great it is the common areas and the facilities that need attention.
Two items in particular concern me:
1.The interior of the elevators are in very poor condition. This causes concerns regarding the general safety and maintence of the systems.
2. There were two treadmills in the workout facility. I reported one to the front desk as malfunctioning early Monday morning. When I checkout Thursday AM this machine still had not been repaired. Although this did not directly affect me it affected quite a few others. Again, this leads me to question the general maintenance of the operations.
Will I stay here again? Yes but not on my next trip.

Rated 3 out of 5 by CambridgeTraveler Nicely Appointed Hotel, Very Busy, Internet Questionable
This is a great facility, waited a bit too long in line for check-in (SPG Gold/Platinum Line), I did receive a very nice room upgrade and the views from the Club lounge were quite enjoyable.
The internet did not initially work, I had to be passed through from the hotel to the Internet Provider and spent 30 mins on the phone. They had to somehow "manually" force my IP addresses through. Not acceptable, last thing I needed upon arrival.
