Just a few minor issues

Pros: Comfortable furnishings.
Cons: Free breakfast and better service at breakfast time. More care to avoid room lockouts by mistake.
Location: We enjoyed the natural beauty of the immediate surroundings (forest preserve, etc.
Locked out of room by staff error. Easily corrected. Slight leak from the shower on bathroom floor. Thought that breakfast was included. It wasn't. Good location, friendly staff. Well equipped facilities. Price would have been about right with breakfast included. Good coffee and other beverages available all day. Spacious lounging.

Excellent location, comfortable stay

Pros: Almost everything - staff in particular.
Cons: In-room coffeemakers.
Location: Very close to both downtown Lake Forest, Vernon Hills and Lincolnshire. Easy access to many superb restaurants and the Chicago Botanic Garden.
The HIlton staff is uniformly excellent and delivers outstanding customer service. The hotel is very comfortable in terms of both amenities and ambience. Very nice little bar and the breakfast buffet is a great value.

This is preferred

Pros: Free breakfast, Close restaurants, Free Internet, Quiet
Whenever I have to go to Ohare I make it a point to stay at HGI Lake Forest Mettawa. It's a good point to take rest from my home town. The staff is the best, the rooms well above average, everything is clean+, the food is good without breaking the bank. Convenient on and off the Interstate and near a mall is you are so inclined. My favorite in the Ohare vicinity.

Lovely place to stay

Pros: Free breakfast, Close restaurants, Free Internet, Quiet, everything was great
The rooms, staff, service, everything really was great. Its about 15 minutes to Great Lakes Navy Base, and trains to get into Chicago. I have nothing bad to say about it at all.

One of the best

This hotel is well appointed and has incredible beds for a really good night's sleep. The staff is incredibly friendly and helpful. maid service is a bit erratic on refreshing the beverage area. Breakfast buffet is good, and might be considered a bit pricey. The bar is not open late enough.
