The modern lobby features more spaces for work, relaxation and socializing. Visitors can take advantage of the complimentary buffet every morning. American fare and house-made breakfast sandwiches are some of the choices hungry guests have to choose from, along with healthy delights such as fresh fruit and granola. Relax at the end of the day during our complimentary evening social on select nights of the week.  A few local restaurants offer dinner delivery service for other meals.

With its convenient location, the Waukegan hotel is close to many attractions, including Six Flags Great America. The amusement park is fun for the whole family, with games and thrilling roller coasters to entertain the entire family.
