Upon checking into my hotel for the evening, I was greeted by the front desk clerk with a very warm and welcoming smile. Kea was able to get me checked in and answered all of my questions with no problem and in a timely manner. She was nothing short of amazing with her service and I really look forward to... More

First things first, if you're staying in the south loop, chances are you're in town for business or a bargain shopper. Either way, this Holiday Inn is a great location. One thing that I'm surprised not to see mentioned more frequently in reviews is the fact that this property sits immediately beside the Clinton stop on the blue line. There... More

The hotel is clean, the staff is friendly and attentive. The location is excellent, especially if you are using the train as your transportation (the Clinton Street station is basically in the parking lot of the hotel). The in-house restaurant is okay (good - not great) and convenient. I'll stay here again.

We got to the hotel around 11AM and they were wonderful upon check in. There was a nice scent in the lobby and clean, nice bathrooms. They had a room available and let us check in early... More

Location convenient for town, as other contributors have noted. Was here for an exhibition in McCormick Place, a short taxi ride away. Discovered a few restaurants around, and the in house grill isn't bad, also has a useful 10 o'clock bar close - good for self preservation!

The hotel is well located in the downtown if you´re thinking about visiting old and historical monuments it will be perfect. O couple of blocks from Metro and Union station, also Megabus which is the same as union. Attention at the main desktop was very nice and helpful.
