This Holiday Inn is definitely a few levels above the average holiday inn. Rooms were good (although I was staying for work, so it's possible they paid for bigger rooms) I made use of the swimming pool, and saw there was a decent gym. Breakfast is expensive though unless you have time to really enjoy the all you can eat...

My first time in a USA city and the bar has been set high, a bit quirky with reception on the 15th floor, I had room 2017 and the views were spectacular looking down the river over 9 bridges past the high rises. The room was modern and large, this is my first IHG without a fridge, not sure the...

Good location, but wish our beds were queen size. Adjacent to the mart which allows you to walk inside on cold days. Staff and service was excellent. Unloading and loading can be tricky because the hotel is on the 15th floor.

We've stayed at the Holiday Inn Chicago Mart Plaza hotel quite a few times. Whether you're there for a fun trip in Chicago or for business, it's a hidden gem at a good value. The hotel sits on top of the SunTimes building next door to the Merchandise Mart. The hotel has convenient onsite parking with in/out privileges. If you're...

This was my first trip to Chicago and couldn't have picked a better location for a hotel!! The train is right across the street (actually don't even have to go outside) and was so easy to use!! We did not rent a car and was able to get all over the city with no problems at all! We went to...

The gentleman that helped me check in was amazing! He was so nice, friendly, and accommodating. We were given drink vouchers for the hotel bar that has some more amazing views. Our room was upgraded to the corner suite and we had views from both sides! We didn't have a chance to use the pool but it's a plus that...

Stayed here and wasn't impressed with the lobby, hallways (very claustrophobic) but the actual room was spacious and comfortable. The bathroom was also nice, spacious. The location is great if you are meeting in the Merchandise Mart. The parking is self only (no valet offered) which is a bit of a hassle.... especially since the price for it was valet...

Brought 75 school children from Wales to stay here after a couple of days skiing close by. Very impressed with the hotel, our children were in awe of it when we first arrived in the lifts. Organisation was great, I had booked nearly 30 rooms and they were all ready and labelled up for me upon my arrival. We were...

The stay with my fiancee was what we were looking for. Close to downtown, places to eat, etc. The hotel very clean and quiet. The room very clean and the room service right on time and with good quality. I come back soon... JUST PERFECT
