Have stayed here many times and the staff is extremely friendly, professional and helpful. But the beds seem to be declining in quality. The first time I ever stayed at this hotel, I thought it was the most comfortable bed I had ever slept it - honestly. But the sleep number apparatus simply doesn't work any more! Both in my...

We have stayed here several times and always enjoyed it. The noise from the highway is not bad especially if you're on the opposite side.The rooms are always new and fresh and the service is very good. The breakfast is especially nice, including friendly service. The exercise room doesn't have any weight machines, which is unfortunate but they do have...

Stayed here overnight for my B-Day. The room was nice and plush. Actually wished we could have stayed and enjoyed the room more but we were only in town for one night. So we had to enjoy the town. Small warning..... this hotel is at least an hour away from downtown Chicago. I'm always OK with that, I like to...

All of the employees that we interacted with were very pleasant, helpful, and went out of their way to accommodate us. Had very quiet room (not on the highway side). I arrived early and the staff worked to provide an early check-in. thank you. The hotel is not near shops but has a restaurant and bar in the hotel.

This hotel has everything that someone needs. Good for the price, has all necessary things for a good rest and experience. Recommend the breakfasts, very good. The better rooms are the ones located with the view of the parking lot. The other has some noice from the road.

The Hilton Garden Inn Lake Forest Mettawa is a pleasant place to stay. Right near the freeway which means that even in a room on the front of the hotel you can hear traffic noise. Many restaurants and stores nearby as well as a quick trip over to Lake Forest College. I would be willing to stay here again.
