I was given a room with a king size bed and it was across from the gym and near end of the hall,felt a little creepy. It was $400 a night because there was a convention in town and the place felt tired and a little dirty. I wouldn't stay here again although I generally enjoy HIE.

This is a well located old hotel, taken over by Holiday Inn Express and did a nice job rehabbing the property. Inexpensive at downtown Chicago. However the rooms are very small and barely can walk around the room. Very small window.

I visited Chicago for a business trip and needed to be in a central location and this hotel certainly fulfilled that need. It is an old hotel that I guess was taken over by Holiday Inn. The rooms are SUPER small. I am not sure how you would get two people in one of the rooms as I was cramped... More

Great location that puts you very close to the Magnificent Mile. The room and bathroom was smaller than we expected, but for downtown Chicago at the prices they offer it is worth it - plus it's Chicago and you really shouldn't be in your room too often anyway. In the lobby, they serve a very large breakfast - which saves... More

This hotel was fantastic! Dont listen to the negative reviews. This hotel is super clean and in a great location. The staff is so friendly and helpful. Yes, the rooms are tiny, but you are not in Chicago to stay in your room all day. I highly recommend this hotel AND you cant beat the price!

My wife and I stayed here for a long weekend away from the kids. The location is unbeatable. It's a few minutes walk from the Mile and a bunch of great restaurants.
