Best hotel experience (and good deal) near Woodfield Mall

Jump to last reply

Heading for a college visit to Loyola - but planning to stay out near Woodfield Mall for some back-to-school shopping. Anyone have a good recommendation their favorite hotel in the area? I usually do something like a Homewood Suites due to more space and the breakfast that's included. But wanted to ask if anyone who has been there a few times has a better suggestion. Thank you!

    If the main purpose of your visit is Loyola, you'll spend at least 45-minutes each way from Schaumburg without traffic. I live about a mile north of Loyola and when I've had to make the trip during the week, it's taken me 90-minutes.

    You can stay in the city and shop the Mag Mile and The Loop for the big stores or head to Armitage Ave or Wicker Park for trendy boutiques. In the River North/Magnificent Mile area there's Homewood Suites, 2 Residence Inns, 2 Double Trees, Spring Hill Suites, Omni, Hilton Suites Chicago and Hampton Inn and Suites.

    Best Western Hawthorne Inn, City Suites, Willows Hotel and Majestic are all in the Lakeview Neighborhood about four miles south of Loyola. All are close to public transit to get you to campus (and downtown).

    Have you looked into the Flats at Loyola Station? It's a student-run guesthouse across from campus that opened in 2010. Check www.loyolaflats.com.

    If you want a suite-type hotel outside the city, there's an Extended Stay America, Hampton Inn & Suites and Double Tree in Skokie adjacent to Old Orchard Mall. It would be about 20-minutes from Loyola's Lake Shore campus and there are several CTA and Pace buses serve the mall and connect to The L.
