I am very pleased with the spaciousness of our guest room. We were traveling with children and it was wonderful to feel like we had room to spread out without tripping over each other. The beds were comfortable, the room was clean, and the hotel is very conveniently located to shopping & dining options. It was also an easy drive... More

This hotel was excellent from the moment we walked in. The staff were friendly and helpful and the room was exactly what was pictured. It was clean and super comfortable. The kids enjoyed that the pool was open late as we were getting off the road late on this leg of our trip. Loved the Keurig in the room!

Clean property. Friendly staff. Indoor pool. Typical free Holiday Inn Express breakfast. Room temperature controlled comfortably by digital thermostat. Bed was very comfortable. Plenty of shopping and dining options in the area, including a couple adjacent to the hotel in easy walking distance. No problem recommending this hotel.

As the title of my review clearly states, I'm outraged at the prices hotels charge during high volume tourist times. I get it. It's business. But you had better roll out the red carpet if you're going to charge the same rate I have paid for much nicer hotels in Chicago! First of all, when I checked in, the young... More

Even though we were across from the elevator, I couldn't hear a thing at night and I slept like a log. The beds are very comfortable! The breakfast was tasty and well stocked. Kudos to the staff--when the machine was out of cranberry juice, he not only restocked it (it was 9:30 and breakfast closes at 10), but he served... More

The breakfast was very good in the morning. The bed was not as comfortable as you would expect, but was average. It was clean but seems a little bit outdated. The pool was clean but smelled a little bit funky. They did have a pool shower that looked like they just retiled.
