"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.

Entertainment tip: Short walk from hotel

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.

Great place to stay!

The kids loved the pool and the service was great. Having the Mart Plaza right next door was very convenient for fast food, but other sit down restaurants outside of the hotel that weren't fast food were a bit of a walk or cab ride.

Money-saving tip: Short walk from hotel

If you want to save some $$ coming from O'Hara, take the blue line train, then transfer to the brown line. Once you get to Mart Plaza, you have about a 4 minute indoor walk to the Holiday Inn (Chicago Sun-Times building.) The Holiday Inn Lobby is actually on the 15th floor. So even though there is a sign saying Holiday Inn on the 1st floor (and all you see are 3 elevators,) the actual lobby is on the 15th floor.

Unfriendly staff

I did not like my room. I could not see the sun. Went to the reception and asked to the staff if i could change the room. A woman said no i cant. The reason for not changing the room was ''You have booked this travel from Orbitz''. I am waiting an apologize from the hotel manager.
