Last weekend I attended the NRA Show with a group from my college and stayed at this Holiday Inn in Chicago.
The hotel is in a spacious and convenient location readily accessible to everything in the city.
The décor is contemporary with a well appointed lobby, restaurant and bar on the 15th floor.
Our room on the 17th floor was very nice.
The staff was efficient, courteous and very helpful.
Russell, the concierge, was especially gracious with suggestions and information about Chicago's many attractions.
On our last day,as I was getting ready to leave, I accidentally hit my head on the towel rack and it started bleeding.
My roommate called the front desk and the manager on duty,Karolina Gadza, came to our room immediately offering to call an ambulance and asking if I needed a doctor.
The bleeding stopped and all I asked for was some coffee and more towels which she brought herself.
She allowed me to stay in my room past checkout and Thomas, the restaurant manager called my room and sent up breakfast.
Ms. Gadza checked on me periodically. She was very kind.
The Holiday Inn Mart Plaza is an excellent hotel with a superior staff who are more than willing to accommodate their guests.
Even with a cut head, I had a wonderful stay and would readily recommend the hotel to anyone visiting Chicago.
