Apparently there are a million hotels in Arlington Heights! I'm having a lot of trouble picking one. I don't have to stay in AH, but I will be visiting a medical facility in this town 3-5 days a week for 3-4 weeks, so anything within 30 min works for me.
I'm so PARANOID about hotel cleanliness PLUS I have severe dust allergies, so a newer or newly renovated hotel is better for me. Plus I am a young woman who will be traveling alone, so the friendlier/more helpful the hotel staff, the better for me.
I'm so concerned about cleanliness that I'm even considering staying in Bolingbrook where a new Aloft is opening on Nov 5, but that's potentially an hour's drive each way. Any suggestions on if this location is totally crazy based on traffic patterns? Better yet, can anyone suggest an immaculate hotel for me? I'm looking for something around100 per night.
You might have a look at some of the reviews on Trip Advisor, it appears there are about 10 hotels in Arlington Heights, the Doubletree might be a good option for you as everyone seems to mention cleanliness.
Would I commute from Bolingbrook to Arlington Heights for 3-4 weeks? No but I don't have issues with allergies and I've never had a problem with a hotel's cleanliness either. Mapquest says its about 44 minutes, presumably with good traffic
I live next to Bolingbrook and work next to Arlington Heights and it takes me 40 minutes for my morning commute of 27 miles (6:20 a.m. to 7:00 a.m.) In the afternoon it takes me 45 to 50 minutes (4:30 p.m. to 5:20 p.m.). I wouldn't deal with the drive as there are many hotels in the Arlington Heights area.
I work in Schaumburg which has many hotels due to the fact that there are many businesses in the area and also a very large shopping mall (Woodfield). You might want to consider staying at one of the hotels in Schaumburg. They have a very new Hilton Garden Inn and Suites if you are looking for something new where no one has ever smoked inside.
Schaumburg is a good suggestion location wise if Arlington Heights doesn't work out, plus there are a lot of good restaurants in the area including branches of some of the well known Chicago restaurants like Wildife, Shaw's and Big Bowl.
