My wife and I spent two nights at the Holiday Inn Merchandise Mart for an anniversary weekend and were quite pleased with the location, convenience to trasportation, and overall cleanliness of the hotel. Checkin took all of two minutes and was quite efficient. The room appeared to have been refurbished recently with new carpeting, and what appeared to be relatively new furniture. Our room faced north, and the view of the city was awesome. Mind you, the best view is to the south, but no matter where your room is you will have a great view of the city. We had breakfast in the Italiasia restaurant both mornings and were very impressed with the good variety of food on the buffet. Everything was fresh and tasted great. The pool looked nice, but we did not have time on this visit to try it out. To sum it up, we have found a new getaway weekend hotel as the Holiday Inn Mart Plaza compares quite favorably with it's competition and is a good value by comparison.
