Holiday Inn Itasca (Woodfield Area)

This place has seen better days. Its better days were probally in the 70's. This hotel is the type of hotel that brings the Hoilday Inn chain down. Avoid this place there are much better near by.

The idea of the "hoili dome" may have worked once but it doesn’t any more. Who wants to look out the window to see people swimming in an indoor pool? This is not the Vegas pool scene. The dome results in a hot steamy area that makes the whole hotel feel humid and wet. I asked twice to be moved away from this and hotel staff kept returning me to the "dome" view.

The rooms are narrow and dark. The carpet needs upgrading. The heavy woods are from a decade or more ago. Everything about this location is dated.

I do not recommend it.

On July 20, 2007 I booked my stay at the Holiday Inn, Itasca, IL. They indicated at the time of booking they had a free shuttle from O'Hare Int'l Airport at the time of booking. Upon arrival (July 21, 2007), I contacted the Hotel and asked for the shuttle to pick us up. I was told that the shuttle only ran from Monday to Friday and since it was a Saturday I should take a taxi. After researching this I found the taxi would be $55.00 US!!! I made other accomidations and called them back, cancelled my reservations with Holiday Inn, Itasca, IL. and told them why. They asked how I booked. I said 1-800-HOLIDAY, their response was "We have told them and told them we do not offer shuttle service on weekends. Please don't tell people that"!!

After returning home, I contacted Holiday Inn's Home office. The were very understanding and gave us 15, 000 Holiday Inn points. Good for Holiday Inn. Would I stay at Holiday Inn Itasca again, NEVER. Would I stay with Holiday Inn again, NO QUESTION, YES!! Full marks for customer service Holiday Inn.

Overall, this was a nice hotel, but I did not enjoy my stay because the noise from the adjacent 8-10 lane highway was deafening. I kept checking to see if the window was open (it was not) because I could not believe how loud it was inside my room. Even with the heater/AC fan turned on, I could still hear the noise, and it continued all night. As a bonus, I could hear a few noisy trains passing through, too, since the train tracks were close by. I was shocked that the Holiday Inn would offer such a noisy room and not provide additional soundproofing.

My family and i have stayed at this hotel twice while sightseeing in the chicago area. each time we were met with a very friendly, helpful staff and clean rooms. The pool/holidome area is also clean and very well set up for family use. The staff go above and beyond to accomodate.


Also, because of it's close proximity to O hare, you would think that we would have heard planes all night, but we didn't hear any at all in the rooms, only in the holidome area, and the noise was very minimal.

I highly recomend this hotel, especially if you are traveling with children or teenagers.

Room Tip: Kolla noga när ni bokar till frukost, och tänk på att vissa rum har utsikt över lobbyn.
