What a great hotel and wonderful staff! We had our wedding reception at the Holiday Inn Elgin on October 20, 2012. Everything was just perfect -- set-up, service, complimentary room, etc. We had the best time and would not change a single thing about how our big day went. Kaitlyn Harm and Mark were great, attentive to our ever needs (even those we didn't know we had). Our suite was newly renovated and absolutely impeccable (as is the entire hotel). If you're looking for a nice place in the Elgin area to have your wedding/reception at, this is it! I highly recommend this hotel (for any occasion). Oh, and the Bennigan's staff was very accommodating for our "after party". Their chicken fingers and sliders are delicious! The service was excellent.

Room Tip: We stayed in a large suite with a jaccuzi. The bathroom was huge. The bed was extremely comfortabl...

The Holiday Inn & Suites is a very nice hotel. The decor is absolutely gorgeous, the staff is friendly and accomodating. Bennigan's is attached to the hotel so this makes for a very convenient food location without having to travel far. I've used this hotel to host business meetings and the service was great. The only downside I would have to say is that they are not very flexible with schedule changes and charging you full price if you cancel a meeting. The price to book a meeting room seems a bit high compared to other hotels I've used in the area. But overall, very nice hotel.

Living in Elgin, I have been attended a variety of functions at this hotel. Recently I attnded an open house and was enormously impressed by the investment made to update and update all areas of this hotel. The lobby, bar area, restaurant and every hotel room were remodeled. They spared no expense. We recommend our business customers stay here when they're in town and have always had gotten rave reviews about their stay.
We are proud there is this level of excellence in an Elgin hotel..

This hotel needed a little TLC, and that's exactly what it got. Love the new renovations! It's nice to see this hotel forward-thinking and staying modern. Very friendly and professional staff. Great for business trips or a night away.

Clean, wonderful location, excellent service, food and value. We have been holding our monthly Lions Club meeting there for over 6 years. The experience has ALWAYS been positive. The new look of the hotel is beautiful. We like it so much that we booked our daughters wedding there.

Room Tip: Park in the back for quicker access

Thank you for your feedback. Service clubs like the Lions are an integral part of our local client base and we strive to make sure that your members look forward to attending the meetings by providing the best food and service at a good value. Also that's a great tip to park in the back of the building for easier access to the banquet rooms and closer parking.
