I don’t know about you, but the amenities that a hotel has are super important. When it comes time to book a hotel, what do you look for? A hotel’s amenities are those little extra things that make your stay much more pleasant. When you book a hotel, it’s not just about finding a place to sleep.

CHECK-IN/CHECK-OUT TIMES – Every hotel has its own set of check-in/check-out times. One thing I loved about the Country Inn & Suites by Radisson, Tinley Park, IL, is that their check-out is at noon.

HOT BREAKFAST –Another great amenity that the Country Inn & Suites by Radisson, Tinley Park, IL, have is BREAKFAST! Who wants to wander around a city looking for something to eat early in the morning? I think most times when a hotel doesn’t provide breakfast, I don’t eat. Not eating breakfast is not the best because, as the saying goes, “Breakfast is the most important meal of the day.” At The Country Inn & Suites, Tinley Park, IL, you’ll always have a good morning with their complimentary, hot breakfast.

WI-FI – Having Wi-Fi kind of goes without saying. Let’s face it – most of us are addicted to our phones. Phones are a big part of our lives, and I find myself checking my email and social media often. Being a military family, we also find it very important to have access to the internet so that we can stay in touch with our loved ones and to stay up-to-date with everything that is happening in the world.
