The Carleton is a pretty nice hotel that's located right in the middle of downtown Oak Park. It's a great place to stay if you want to be close to Chicago without actually staying in the city, or if you want to have a quick getaway weekend without going very far. The hotel is old (they call it "historic"), but well-kept. The rooms are clean, spacious, and modern, with coffeemakers and Internet ports available in each one (in the main building). Overall, I think it's a bit expensive, but a nice place to stay.
