As the only hotel on the Chicago O’Hare International Airport grounds, families catching a flight with kids will love being within walking distance to all of the airport’s domestic terminals via an underground walkway and the train to downtown Chicago. A shuttle is also available to international terminals. The guestrooms and suites at this pet-friendly hotel have soundproof windows and no planes fly directly over the hotel so a quiet night is never an issue. The Family Suite offers a large sitting area with a sleeper sofa, and Wi-Fi is available in all of the guestrooms. Families will love the indoor pool, fitness center and onsite dining options for breakfast, lunch, dinner and grab and go.

I fly ORD quite often and always had been curious about the Hilton, seeing it as a first class hotel. I finally had a reason to book, coming in on a late flight and unable to complete the journey that night. Room rates on the Friday night were really low, so I booked instead of going to another local hotel. The experience was not as I expected. The hotel is firmly in the "former glory" stages of life, and looks and feels tired and worn. Staff was OK, but a bit distant and cold. The room apparently had been occupied for a short time and not made up again. There was some personal effects left behind and the bathroom soaps were used. Bed and all seemed made, so it was late and I stayed. Toilet made dribbling noises and heater was loud. Noise from the airport was subdued and not a problem. Bar was on last call when I arrived, so didn't hang around. Sleep quality was good, once the neighbors settled down. Overall, the place needs renovation or at least a major work over. Sad to see these iconic hotels going downhill.
We only stayed one night waiting for our nexdt flight, the room was very clean and had everything we needed. The check in staff was very courteous and we had dinner in the restaurant and the food was delicious. I needed a birthday dessert for my friend and and the restaurant staff all came and sang Happy Birthday.
