We have stayed in this hotel twice in the last two years. It is nice, very clean, and in a quiet part of town. The front desk person was sweet, and took the time to chat with us about our stay. The hotel is a little older and the mattresses could use an update. They were a little too 'broken... More

After I'd attended a couple of events at this property with my former condo association, I booked a workshop for two days with the hotel. The sales/event manager, Theresa, was incredibly helpful throughout the entire booking process. Everything was delicious with our catering orders and the staff was incredibly helpful when we needed assistance with A/V set up, lighting, etc.... More

My family and I booked this hotel on July 30 2016 because the kids wanted to get in the pool and play basketball as we have used this hotel previously in the past in June 2016 that stay was good but our last visit was a nightmare.

Thank you for taking the time to speak with me last week about your stay. As I stated on the phone our gym is leased out and they do have policies and procedures about how many people are allowed in the gym for each room. They did tell me they offered a day pass for your extra guests. I apologize... More

We stayed there the night of my daughter's wedding. There seemed to be a lot of guests from various weddings staying at the hotel. The lobby and elevators were crowded even at midnight. The room was very nice, the shower head was very good though a little low for a tall person. Breakfast was very good. Lots of bacon, sausage,... More

So far I'm loving Holiday Inn Express hotels. Nothing really negative to say about this establishment. If had to be pressed "really hard" about something negative to say, I would say that it's NOT close to downtown Chicago at all. In fact, it took approximately 45 min (+/-) TRAFFIC, which was horrible. My stay was from Thurs thru Mon. By... More

I was worried about being around Chicago. This was a nice neighborhood, no need to worry. Nice upscale neighborhood, far enough from the freeway to be quiet, good restaurants around; I couldn't have been happier. But, the doorknob in the bathroom door wasn't quite right. I called the front desk. The maintenance man came and fixed it. Turns out there... More

Our double queen was nice but I was surprised to find no refrigerator, microwave or safe. The TV is small compared to what you normally find. There were plenty of electrical outlets for charging.
