I agree with a previous review. This hotel is advertised as downtown but it is far from the major areas for sightseeing of downtown Chicago. Public bus stops at the hotel and blue line is also conviently close. Parking is terrible. I stayed at this location July 16-19 the front desk upon arrival was very friendly and helpful with my...

We arrive on the Amtrak, which is steps away from the Holiday Inn. Upon check in, our reservations are not to be found, ( booked through an online booking site). Immediately the staff were there to assist us in any way they could. They gave me the phone because my phone had a technical issue with incoming & outgoing calls.... More

This Hotel is not well located. They sell 'Downtown Chicago' but they are very far from all the good attractions and sites. The hotel is average but too expensive. I do not recommend it. The best thing in this Hotel Julio, Taiyon and Conchi at the Front Desk. Great Customer Service.

This hotel was an amazing surprise. Everything was brilliant from the super nice and always helpful staff, to the amazing room that was always kept spotless to the very convenient location. It was very close to the main points of interest in Chicago and you can take a short walk and be right there.

I had a pretty good stay at the Holiday Inn Chicago Downtown. I was there for a work conference which took place over the weekend. I took the train from the airport to the hotel and the entrance was right next to the hotel (literally)! I was also only half a mile from a shopping plaza that had Whole Foods,... More

Stayed for 8 days in a 1 bedroom suite. Old but clean. Had full kitchen and was very roomy. No free breakfast and the hotel restaurant was pricey for average food. Very good for public transportation. Limited parking.

We stayed at this hotel for 5 days. It was clean and the employees were nice and helpful. If staying in Chicago again, to do anything down by Soldier Field, I would not stay here. There are many place closer to Soldier Field with better accommodations. The restaurant at this Holiday Inn is just plain awful. There is NO OTHER... More

I was booked at the Holiday Inn Chicago Downtown for two nights as part of a group member. When I saw my reservation, I was unsure where this hotel is and am rather familiar with Chicago. I normally stay in the Gold Coast, Loop Area, or Millennium Park. The Hotel is on the other side of where I normally stay... More

The staff of this hotel were very friendly, helpful and efficient. While the property seems to be basic and no-nonsense, accommodations were very clean and comfortable. A nice touch were the chocolates and water left in the room. We had a great night's sleep!
