None of the plumbing works. I had to switch rooms 3 times because the toilets would not flush. The entire first floor smelled of sewer. A pipe burst and all rooms on first floor had to be evacuated. An apology, not an explanation was communicated to guests. Clean towels were rarely provided. Managers were unprofessional, crass and inconsistent.

This holiday in really cares for their guests. We were here using the 3rd floor board room, the staff went over and beyond to ensure we had what we needed in the room! Also the custodian i don’t remember his name, was great as well! He should be recognized!

We stayed the weekend due to home renovation and were very nervous about cleanliness and COVID19. Our room #313 hadn’t been clean thoroughly. It was full of flying bugs and my 4 yo daughter pointed our large spider webs throughout the tv stand and tables. The bathroom had muddy footprints in certain sections. I called front desk & was told that housekeeping would come clean the room. My reply was due to COVID, how would this be done safely? I was told “no worries, it’ll be okay”! I refused housekeeping so social distance reasons & demanded a room change. At that point, he appeared annoyed & told me “well, come get a key to another room”! What type of service is this?? We cleaned the new room and settled in. The next morning we heard loud bangs & realized it was the housekeeper. she was cleaning rooms in the area, with her cart blocking our doors, all while not wearing a MASK at all. Her helper, a younger guy wore his mask like a chin strap!

This hotel was a great disappointment. Internet, cable was down for over 24 hours, no manager on duty, staff had to scramble and guests suffered for this inconvenience. Was told the manager would be in at 7 am to assist us, then told he would be in at 7:30, heard from the manager at 8am. No resolution with cable/internet.. I had asked if I could be transferred to another Holiday Inn Express, no assistance. They advertise as a business hotel, but no back up plan, no sense of urgency when cable and internet are out of order. This problem should have been addressed immediately by management staff. It was a hotel issue not the internet provider, they had a patched up firewall system on the computers, probably very old cable as well. As a side note when I checked into my room there was no shampoo or bath gel in the dispenser."HOT" breakfast " was very cold, was told "Heat it up in the microwave". This was at 8:00 am, breakfast bar had opened at 7 am. Not very accommodating to their guests. Will stick with the Marriott chains from now on.

Dear Guest, Thank you for providing us with some important feedback regarding your recent experience with us. We appreciate hearing from all our guests as our goal is to provide the best possible stay for everyone who comes to visit us. I appreciate you choosing our location to use your Rewards points and booking 2 Free Nights stay at our location. As all things in life, there will be a time when electronics will have wear and tear and it will break down at some point. Since I was personally involved resolving this situation, I explained to you in person that there was a service time of 24-48 hours from the vendors side to get a new Firewall in place and have the internet back up and running. When I spoke with you at the time of checking out, I apologies to your for the trouble and I did return your one free night stay worth of points back to your account, which I thought it was fair thing to do to make you happy and to appreciate your loyalty towards IHG. I completely understand how frustrating this can be but sometimes some things are just not in your control and no matter how prepared you are, it will always take some time to make the way they suppose to be and that's just life because no place is a perfect place in this world. Even after your spouse had my Guest Service Employee in tears because you were upset about the situation, we still always greeted you with a smile. We understand that we are in a service industry and we know moments like this will always accrue, we still like to believe that everyone has the right and should be treated with respect and dignity regardless of which side of the table you are in. Again, please accept my sincerer apology for the inconvenience you faced at our hotel due to no internet connection during your stay and hope your next stay with IHG will be a pleasant one. If there is anything I can assist you with or you wish to speak with me further regarding your stay, I welcome you to contact me at 630-810-9500 Ext 400 or you can write me an email at dwg3031@gmail.com. Sincerely, Ron Thakkar General Manager Holiday Inn Express, Chicago - Downers Grove
