Bill and I had the pleasure of staying in the Renaissance Schaumburg Hotel & Convention Center on Saturday night. This is one the better hotels Bill and I have stayed in (and we’ve stayed in many bad, bad, bad places). When you first walk in, there is an escalator to get up to the hotel lobby. The lower level of the hotel is the convention center. The people behind the desk were extremely helpful and friendly. The lobby was decorated with modern contemporary furniture. They had some great sound proofing too. Our room was on the third floor, but right over the lobby. We never heard a thing from the lobby the entire time! The rooms were fairly large, and the bathrooms had TVs in the mirrors. The TV in the room was also HD, so my husband was in seventh heaven. The bed was super comfortable too. We also had a chase lounge chair in the rooms too! If you are there for business, there was a desk to work on, and several plugins for all your business needs. We also checked out the hotel bar, Gather, and that bar was very nice also. We were there after the dinner we were there for. The staff was awesome and made great drinks. Again, the furniture was very contemporary but very comfortable. My only complaint is that parking is quite a walk away from the hotel. I lucked out that Bill dropped me off at the door, so I didn’t have to walk that far.
If you are in the Schaumberg area here in Illinois, this is definitely a hotel you should check out.
This last weekend I had the opportunity to stay in this wonderful hotel. The first thing I have to say is that we will definitely stay at another Country Inn & Suites again. The hotel is one of the best we have ever stayed in. First, they had cookies on their counter that the kids could have, so Madison was in love immediately. They let us check in early (we had come from a wedding), and without me telling them, put us right next door to my parents. It made my life ten times easier having them that close. They assigned us a room on the first floor, so it would be easier with the kids too. They have a 24 hour pool that was just the right temperature, and it was huge. They even had a whirlpool. To get into the pool area, you needed a key, so it was nice to know that everyone in there was staying at the hotel. You didn’t have to worry that people were just walking in and using the pool. They always had towels in there too, so we didn’t have to use our room towels. They were extremely helpful in taking a poopy diaper from me, so I didn’t have to leave it in my room overnight. They also had a list of restaurants and pizza places you could order from that would deliver with menus. All the rooms have wifi and the lobby also has a desktop you can use. I loved the room setup too. We were in a king suite, so we had plenty of room. Our room had a small kitchen area with a microwave and fridge. The king bed was in a separate area with a tv. We set the pack n play up there for Will. The bathroom was one of the biggest ones I’ve seen in a hotel in a while. Then there was the living room. It had a tv, table, and a couch. The couch pulled out into a queen size bed, and it was pretty comfortable too. They also have a continental breakfast which was awesome. We had toast, muffins, bagels, scrambled eggs, sausage, cereal, and Belgian waffles. Since checked wasn’t until noon (which is way awesome), we were able to take the kids swimming again before we left! The staff was extremely nice and helpful our entire stay.
If you are ever in the Appleton, Wisconsin, area, you should definitely stay at the Country Inn & Suites.
