We used the park, sleep, and fly special at the Holiday Inn Express, since we had a flight out of Midway at 6:00 AM the next day. We were efficiently checked in and found the room to be clean and of sufficient size for a comfortable one-night stay. The wireless internet didn't work right but a call to the technical support got it working in about 15 minutes, but it was pretty slow. We took the shuttle to the orange line 'L' stop to eat downtown and were told by the driver just to call on the courtesy phone when we got back and they'd pick us up. We got back and looked all over for the courtesy phone. The CTA cop said that we were like the 4th people to ask for the courtesy phone and he had no idea what we were talking about. So we walked over to the airport terminal and found our way to the baggage claim area. We looked outside and saw a shuttle, flagged it down, and got a ride back. I still don't know where that courtesy phone is. The front desk and driver were also friendly at 3:45 AM when we left for the airport. Fresh-baked chocolate chip cookies were also placed on the front desk, and I assumed they were for the guests, and if indeed they were, then this was a nice touch. I understand that this hotel is the second cheapest in the complex, so if you're going to be flying out of Midway and you're looking for a comfortable night sleep before your flight, this is a good choice.
