Chicago

The hotel was good and in a great location. Was a nonsmoking room but smelled like smoke. Room next door was a smoking room and smoke came through air vents. Bed was comftetable, room was spacious and had a great view.

Best Hotel In The Loop!

This is the best hotel in the area. For certain has the biggest rooms you will find. The view of the river is spectacular! Check in and check out was super fast. Having the Merchandise Mart connected to the building was extremely convenient for food, ATMs and getting on the Brown Line. Not overpriced, very clean rooms. My only complaint is that you can hear everything that's going on in the bathroom, so make sure the TV is on if you're shy!

overall good

The location is perfect but somehow hard to find when we got off the train. The room is not sound proof. I can hear exactly what people talk nextdoor. But the front desk gave us a lot of helpful information.

A good value for an area of Chicago that can be very pricey.

"Great place to stay"

We had a room with a view over the river. Farther up the loop but still with the downtown feel and close enough to jump in a cab and go downtown. It was very nice!!

Very Nice Hotel

Very nice room and service. Location is good. We had a riverview room so we can see the Sears Tower and all the nice bridges over the Loop of Chicago river, espcially gorgous night view. The only thing missing is it's a little far from all the shopping area. Though it's at walking distance, at night it's not very convenient to walk out by yourself. But other than that, it's a very decent hotel. It definitely deserve the value. (I also like its free wire-less internet service.)

Pleasant stay downtown

Our stay at the Holiday in Mart was wonderful. It was our first trip to Chicago and definitely not the last. The hotel staff was very attentive and wonderful to help. The hotel is convenient to anything in the downtown area. Would recommend to anyone wanting to experience the downtown Chicago environment.

Take the sundown river/lake tour. Very enjoyable and a great way to see and learn about the city and architecture.

Great Location, price, and service

This hotel is in an excellent location and within one block of the "L". It is reasonably priced and provides excellent accomodations with breathtaking views of the river and the seemingly endless sky scrapers. The staff was helpful and very friendly. In addition, we were able to either ride the "L" or walk to most of the popular down down locations - including wrigley field and the air port. Our suggestion would be to not rent a car. You have to pay for parking everywhere you go which ends up getting very expensive and dealing with traffic can be a nightmare. Just get a CTA pass and use the puplic transportation. It is safe and not hard to figure out. But most of all it is worth the savings and you can actually get around very quickly.

Eh..... So-so

Staff were very friendly. Fairly good location. Free breakfast if you got a green ticket, otherwise $17 per person. $30 a day parking. The room was somewhat small (good pillows though) and old- musty.The pool was cold with no hot tub. No refrigerator in the room. Very noisy air conditioner that would let the room get hot and then make it cold. Hard to sleep well with it running.
