This place was pretty nice. Friendly, helpful staff. Clean rooms and comfortable beds. One night during my stay they had rented out one of their convention rooms to a teenage party of some type. We were told it would be over by 11pm.... it was past midnight by the time it stopped. Music was so loud it was actually rattling... More

hotel was what you'd expect. if coming from Midway or O'Hare by taxi, make arrangements for a city taxi, not just a taxi from the airport stand. Fare from Midway to this hotel ran me $105. before any tip

Not bad. Larger banquet facilities. I wanted a king suite but it wasn't available. Room was larger and clean. Bathroom was roomy. Tub/shower made a terrible noise while using. Bed was comfortable. Courteous staff. A little too close to traffic for me. Nice restaurant. Reasonable food prices. Ten dollar breakfast buffet added to room price is a deal.

My husband and I stayed at this Holiday Inn several times while our son lived in Wheaton from 2012 until this past May. The rooms were always clean, well maintained and had good rates. If you're looking for super fancy, high-end rooms, this is not the place. But like most Holiday Inns, here you can depend on a decent, affordable... More

One Bedroom Suite with double beds for a group of 4 people. One night stay. Location: Suburbs of Chicago. Not very many restaurants around, but the price is very reasonable for what you get.

The staff at the front desk was snotty and treated myself and my family as if they were irritated we were there. Not to mention a staff member at the front desk told my parents who were also staying in the room next door that only suites have everyday linen changes and fresh clean towels. I refuse to go back...

We didn't meet a single unfriendly staff member while here- they were all accommodating and friendly and eager to help with anything. The room is...well...old and dingy. It has a mildew smell with a strong cleaner smell on top of it- maybe carpet cleaner? The furnishings are run-down but functional. The bed was pretty comfortable. The bathroom was basic. Toiletries... More

I was surprised how nice this hotel ended up being. My favorite parts were the pillows. You have a choice or firm or soft. I have never seen that before. Normally I either bring my own pillow or end up with a stiff neck so this was a really thoughtful touch. I also like that there is room service and... More

I recently stayed here with m family for a brief visit. Not knowing the area, and reading some fairly harsh reviews of other local-ish hotels I was a bit unnerved. Happily this hotel had decent reviews and after staying there i thought it merited one from me as well. The biggest strength of this hotel is it's people. I had... More
