Stayed here for business in and around Chicago. This is an adequate business hotel... not awful, but not great either. It's a bit of an older vintage HI Express, so a little lacking in updates and amenities, but this is reflected in the lower rate. Pros: - conveniently located to 88 freeway; - lots of nearby restaurant options, including short...

Needed a hotel in Chicago for one night. Narrowed my choices down to three and decided on this one because I had a discount. Good location. Many restaurants and shopping malls near by. It is not near downtown Chicago. About 23 miles from there. Check in was quick and easy. The girl at the desk was friendly and polite. She...

Very close to the express way with plenty of dining options nearby, next to a Red Lobster, but more importantly, a Portillo's across the street. Free parking. Check in was friendly and simple - probably less than 2 minutes and done. Up to the room, very simple and more importantly, clean. Got ready for a wedding, front desk helped me...

I reserved a room with two double beds through Holiday Inn Corporate. Upon arrival, at 2 in the morning, they told me I would be placed in a room with 1 King and a pull out couch since they were booked. Once in the room I discovered 1 king, no pull out couch and no room for a roll away...

Wow. I am so sorry to hear that you had such a bad experience with us. We work so hard to accommodate the needs of all of our guests and I see that we hugely failed with your experience. I am so sorry that we did not have the room available that you had requested and then the shower was...

It was alright, I guess. When we first went to check in the staff wasn't very friendly. I'm pretty sure it was because of the person who was in front of us in line. The guest had an attitude and was wanting another room. That's fine, whatever. The person behind the counter carried that negative guest's attitude over to us...

Booked it for $55 a night on Hotwire. Front desk was very nice and every employee was polite and helpful. The downside is the older building. We arrived late after a Cub's night game. Toilet wouldn't flush well (thankfully the first attempt didn't contain solids). Went to the front desk get a plunger and apparently there was only one in...

The location of this hotel was very close to my meetings, that’s why I selected it. The room was OK – they did not upgrade me as IHG Platinum member, with the excuse that they were fully booked. This was not my impression when I looked at the parking lot, unless the other guests came by foot. When I checked...
