How to Get There
I planned this trip for my best friends birthday. We had the Weekday Spa Package. She got a facial and I got the Spa Diva Package which included the Eaglewood Signature Manicure and Pedicure.
The spa staff were very nice. This was my first time getting a mani-pedi at a salon since I always do my own nails. I wanted to experience what it's really like getting it professionally done. Saying I was disappointed is saying nothing. First off, it was freezing everywhere in the spa (not a big deal for many, but it was impossible to fully relax when you're shuddering). My nail tech Bebe was very nice, and I really liked her as a person to talk to, but the manicure she did left me cursing the whole trip after. She did a decent job applying the nail polish, but not even a day later it started chipping at the ends. My thumb on my right hand was missing half the polish by the second day after I got the service done. I could deal with the chipping ( even though it should not start chipping on the second day) it is the breaking and cracking of my nails that drove me up the wall. My nails are pretty strong (as Bebe even mentioned herself) but with the nail polish chipping at the corners of my nails, my nails started cracking and breaking. I am capable of fixing such things if I was at home, but I was at the start of my vacation with no spare nail polish bottle to quickly fix it. My nails were getting caught on things and chipping even more. By the time I got home 4 days after the mani, they were chipped, broken, and looked like I haven't taken care of them for a month. For the amount of money I paid for my nails to chip and break I could've did them at home.
The hotel itself was pretty nice and clean. Didn't have any problems in our room except when the fire alarm started to beep randomly at 8 in the morning. We called the front desk and it took them about 15-20 minutes to send someone to fix the battery. Not a pleasant way to wake up in the morning.
With our Spa package, we were given a breakfast buffet voucher for 2 (which was handed to us when we checking in). The next day we went for the breakfast buffet, to only be told that there was no buffet since nobody is here to do it or serve the food for. We were shocked. We showed her the voucher and told her that it is part of the package. The poor lady didn't know what to do since it was only her second day on the job. She got someone higher up to help us. The other lady gave us a la carte menus and said we can pick something from that. The choices seemed decent, so we didn't worry too much. (Except you could only get one thing from the menu that our voucher would cover and everything else you would have to pay for). Everything would've been fine if we didn't have to wait for an hour and a half for our food.. We were the only 2 people in the restaurant. There was nobody else there. It took an hour and a half for them to make a couple pouched eggs and toast. Ridiculous.
In all, if you are stopping there for the hotel, it is pretty nice. If you are stopping for everything else, I would not waste your time or money.
So happy I decided to book here for one night of relaxation. Hotel was only 6% occupied on this particular Sunday night. Ed and Dene from the bar are great to talk to plus they make awesome drinks!
Very comfortable hotel room plus if you visit in the summer you would enjoy the deck with sliding door for fresh air with a nice view of the golf course - this was a nice surprise to see. Food was excellent! Spa and pool/hot tub A++
You will enjoy your stay - I promise - this is a lovely secret in Itasca. :)
We recently stayed at the Eaglewood Resort sans kids (a rare occasion for us!). Our stay was fantastic – from the room to the amenities to food! Highly recommend a stay here!
We stayed in a junior suite with a golf view room and found it spacious and clean. I always loved the simple artwork and the fact that there were two televisions. The bathrooms were big enough and my husband and I didn’t have to fight about counter space which is always a plus.
Wow! We honestly did not need to leave the resort at all (which hardly ever happens since we love exploring new areas.) Breakfast and dinner was super convenient and on property (and I highly, highly recommend! More on that later.) First things first, even if you don’t really work out you must check out their gym. It may be one of the best gyms we’ve been to. The facility includes a separate weight room with tons of equipment and the other room has plenty of cardio equipment (treadmills, bikes, stair machines, weights.) After getting our work out on, we relaxed at the pool with the blasting jets of the hot tub, dry sauna, and steam room. We then relaxed at The Spa with a couples massage. We loved our experience. The masseuses worked their magic for 60 minutes while maintaining very professional (and quiet).
If you’re looking for fun, Eaglewood offers that too! We had a blast challenging to a few games of bowling at the retro bowling alley. There’s a bar there as well if interested plus they serve pizza. We also tried out the new golf simulator game (by Prairie Grill.) Beginners can try carnival-type games to practice or you can go straight to simulated golf games. We aren’t golfers so we couldn’t really get into it.
Tip: Make sure to have someone show you the ropes to make sure it’s working as it should. We had a little bit of trouble getting it to work.
We had dinner at Prairie Grill (lower level) and loved everything we tried. From the large salads to the lobster rolls and street tacos to the ribeye, everything was so delicious. Don’t forget to indulge in their mud pie made in-house (one of my favorite things I’ve tasted in a while!) We also had breakfast at Burnham’s. This is not your ordinary breakfast buffet! There are so many choices from an oatmeal and yogurt station, an omelet station, hot food like eggs, chicken sausage, bacon, make your own waffles, breakfast pastries, and so much more. If you’re tracking your macros, you’ll find signs with nutritional information.
Hotel is clean and polite staff with very good facilities. Rooms are a nice size with great views of the golf course. If you choose not to have your room cleaned on certain days you get a voucher for 5 dollars refund of your room which is a great idea. Fantastic breakfast buffet with egg chef and superb gym and pool facilities with all modern equipment. Ideally located as only about 30 mins from O’Hare airport
We stayed overnight for a staycation without the kids. We started off with a private Chef's Table dinner with Chef John Billings that is one of the most exclusive dinners we've ever experienced. We are both restaurant professionals and in our entire careers - we've never had a Chef's Table dinner experience! Eaglewood Resort offers this with Chef John and it is the most incredible experience. if you want to propose or close a HUGE DEAL with a client - this is where you go to get it done!
The hotel itself is beautiful with great architectural design. The lobby is grand but still cozy and elegant.
The next day we got our first couple's massage and hung out in the pool. The spa was an amazing experience. Very soothing Tranquility Room that we fell asleep!
It was just what we needed to recharge and bond together and enjoy each other's company. It was elegant and an experience we will always remember.
A week later we came back, this time with the kids to experience the golf simulator and bowling alley and we had so much fun! There is something here for couples and families. We can't wait for warmer weather and stay with the kids and enjoy the grounds and and outdoor activities!
