Eaglewood Resort And Spa


Todd and I celebrated our sixth anniversary, July 26.  We went to the Chicago for the weekend and stayed at Eaglewood Resort and Spa in Itasca right outside of Chicago.   We stumbled upon it by mystery.  Hotels.com had a super secret special and it was rated 4.5 stars out of 5 and 87% of the guest would recommend the hotel, so we thought we would go ahead and take the deal.  What a deal it was too!  Here was the view once you stepped inside the main doors.

 We found the lobby beautiful!  It was so inviting and warm. 
 
 
 The view from the back of the lobby to the front of the lobby.  I loved the details in the lobby.
  
Outside the main lobby there was a patio where the guest can sit.  We can eat, drink, or just sit and enjoy the view.  On the weekends during the Summer and while we were there they had a live band playing in the evening.  The guest could also sit on the patio to enjoy the music.
 
The resort has regular floors and then two towers, the South Tower, which is in the center of this view and the North Tower which is on the left of the picture where the door frame is hiding most of the building.  Our room was in the North Tower.
Above is another view from a side window as we headed towards our elevators.  The resort has a full golf course and a beautiful one. In the distance you can see some lights from the band playing.  They had an outdoor fire pit and patio where the resort restaurant is located.
Our actual room was not fancy by no means but very comfortable.  We were on the 11th floor and the towers had a balcony for each room. On the balcony we had two chairs and a side table.  We sat out there and read our books and drank some non alcoholic drinks.  We also left the sliding door open when we went to sleep since we were on the 11th floor.  The breeze kept the room cooler.
 
This was the North Tower, our room was on the top left balcony.  Our first night, Todd was on the balcony enjoying it and came in with a huge smile saying how easy it would be to climb over the railing and walk on the ledge and get onto the neighbor's balcony.  I thought he was crazy and just joking.  The next morning, our anniversary after we both were ready to head into Chicago (We had tickets for a boat cruise tour.) we decided to go onto the balcony and take some pictures.
 
 
Todd showed me how he could climb over.  He actually was only pretending which was a great photo opportunity.
Above is the look down from our balcony and the ledge Todd thought would be easy to walk on.  I was not a big fan of his idea one bit.
Across the parking lot was another building.  I wish I would have taken a picture of it and everything inside.  The building housed the swimming pool, hot tub, the largest fitness center I have ever seen at a hotel, an aerobic room, a spa, a six lane bowling alley and a bar for the bowling alley.  It was so friendly and family oriented.  The bar was not the normal bar, just there for refreshments for the guest who were bowling.  Across the street from the activity building was a playground and tennis court.  Our two nights there was wonderful.  We wished we had one more night to just relax and enjoy the resort.  It was a perfect home away from home for the weekend.
