I was here on a conference by Dr. Joe Dispenza. The rates for group was very good, the room clean and comfortable. The food was excellent!! The staff was very friendly. My room was standard, it was small compact but it had all that I needed.

The Q Center is our company's training center and the property used to be Saint Dominic College for women, built in 1962. So what you've got is a mid-century group of buildings and dorm rooms. As others have mentioned, the rooms are very small. But I found mine to be cozy and comfortable. Very functional. You aren't here to hang...

This property is just beautiful 95 acres along the Fox River. We were not able to enjoy the property to it's fullest only because of our scheduling. The layout of the property is much like a college campus. The food was very good with 3 buffet lines with different options in each line. Excellent coffee and cappuccino available when the...

Came for an assessment training. Twin bed, shower so small I had to get out to wash my feet, very isolated. No escape from relentless buffet meals. This is a good retreat center, certainly no distractions, but a little dated and a bit musty

Attended a conference at this center. As we arrived I felt like I was entering a cult compound. This is not close to ANYTHING. The grounds are beautiful, but they defiantly don't want you retiring to your room and ignoring the 'team' part of the conference. To say the rooms are small is itself a small understatement. One of my...

I was here for a school conference. I brought my husband with me. The single rooms ate the size of a small cruise ship cabin, and I mean small. If you are claustrophobic, stay in the full bed suite. If you can help it, do not eat here . Spend the 5 minurws itvtakes to go dowtown. Not only will...

For its purpose, this facility is excellent. This is not your typical tourist venue as it is located off the main town and downtown Chicago. The private place ensures your participants concentrate on what they are there for. There is a limousine service available for airport pickups and other taxis available to take you around. The rooms were small and...

Like most reviewers - I was here for a conference/training event - as mentioned it is an hour out of Ohare and they have a limo service on site. I was thinking that was going to cost an arm and a leg but it was surprisingly very reasonable. The Grounds were nice and well kept. The rooms are small but...

Stayed in this hotel/conference center for 2 nights as part of a company-sponsored training program. Hotel complex is at least an hour away from O'Hare. Did not have a chance to see how far away it is from the city center. Having seen the pictures of the rooms in the hotel's web site, I was prepared to sleep in a...

This place will always have special memories for me as I stayed here everytime I have training for Accenture (which dates back to my 1st one in 1997). They have certainly improved the place from back then (eg. they now offer starbucks brewed coffee as part of the buffet). The buffet is still good and offers a wide variety of...
