    Chicago Navy Bootcamp Graduation

    By

    February 04, 2016

    Was in Chicago with my wife for my son's Navy Boot Camp graduation. Be prepared to pay extra to stay in this area because graduations are "every week" and this is the only Navy graduation center in the country. This hotel is decent and typical of other Candelwood Suites (business hotel that is no frills but clean with friendly staff).

    Suggestion - Candlewood Suites provides free transportation to-and-from the Naval Center on graduation day. It would be helpful if the front staff would let guests know that taking the shuttle is the "preferred method" to get to the graduation. We made the mistake of driving the rental car - we left the hotel at 6:30 AM and just made it into the graduation on-time to see the start. "It is a logistical nightmare!" Hundreds of cars in one line trying to get through a security checkpoint one vehicle at a time!

    Take the train into Chicago (easier than driving). Your Navy kid will appreciate Chicago and tons of great food and entertainment! Go see the museums also (totally worth it). Around the hotel you have limited choices, though the convenience to the base (distance/location) makes it worth staying in the area (this hotel).

    Hotel is OK

    club

    My first impression of the lobby was a bad one. It is TINY, so tiny that when two other people were there, it felt VERY crowded, not like I am used to in large chain hotels - and I travel a lot.

    Bed sheets were smelly - like they were washed after being exposed to cooking oil and not fully cleaned. To be fair, I didnt call to get them changed - I was running a very busy schedule and do not like staff members in my room when i am not there. I should also mention that a relative was staying in a different room and had no such problems.

    Staff members were friendly, but check in seemed to take too long. I had made a reservation over the internet and things should have moved along quickly, but did not.

    The air conditioning vent decided to fall off of the machine on its own one night. Upon further inspection it had probably broken before and was taped on. Doesn't leave you with a good feeling.

    Just minutes away from Great Lakes Naval Station.
