This little hotel was perfect for our family reunion. We were able to gather the extended family and have them close without needing to have anyone sleep on our living room floor. Accommodations are very comfortable and luxurious.

I'm glad to hear our hotel was perfect for your gathering! Being so small makes it perfect when you need just a few rooms. I appreciate you referring your family members to us and hope that you continue to do so when the need comes up. Thank you for taking the time to do a review!

We have stayed here twice. Both stays were excellent. This location is very convenient to Morton Arboretum. The room is clean, modern, and quiet. The breakfast is hot cereal, fresh fruit, and yogurt delivered to your door. The college gym is available for hotel guests. It is a wonderful facility with running track and many exercise machines.

Inn at Water's Edge is a B&B on the campus of College of DuPage, a local community college. It is run by staff and students studying hospitality at the college and they bend over backwards to do everything for you. The rooms are well appointed with many amenities and a view of a small lake, or lagoon.

I appreciate your mention of how we bend over backwards for our guests. It's important for us to teach our hospitality students how personalized we can make each guests' stay. Thank you for reviewing your stay with us!

What a surprise. This is a tiny boutique hotel that is housed within the College of Dupage's Culinary and Hospitality Center. So yeah. Training ground for students. But at no point in my visit did I ever feel as though I was treated with any less than something akin to a top Hyatt or Marriot property. Extremely well done. Nicely...

The service was helpful and friendly. The room was beautiful. The breakfast was perfect. The little dinning area for breakfast was nice. The location was ideal. We would definitely come back again and refer to friends.

The room was very nicely decorated. It had a luxurious feel and was spacious. It was quiet and relaxing and met all of our needs! The only thing I wish was different was that it had a mini fridge in the room!

Really enjoyed my stay at the Inn. I was at the college for a business event and the sponsor suggested I stay there. Very nice room and the room service breakfast included with the room was a nice touch.

My husband and I stayed here on a Wednesday night and thoroughly enjoyed our visit. Being the middle of the week in October, it seemed as if we had the place to ourselves. The inn was extremely quiet and peaceful, and we had a wonderful view of the nearby pond and fountain from our third floor room. The staff was...

We stayed here when we ran Humanity First's Disaster Response course. The room was very well set out and the staff were fabulous. Nothing was too much trouble and they made you feel like you were the only ones there and you were their favourite guest. Highly recommended and can't wait to stay here again.
