Perfect Stay

My stay at the Holiday Inn Chicago-Mart Plaza was perfect. It is centrally located in the heart of the city. It is near everything. The bed was comfortable. Everything was clean. Hotel staff were so hospitable! I even got my morning paper delivered to my door! I had a short stay in Chicago. If my stay at here at the Holiday Inn Chicago-Mart Plaza would not have been so comfortable, my entire trip would've been ruined. I would recommend all my friends and family to to check in on any of their Chicago trips!

Check out Gibsons for some filet mignon sliders while your listen to a talented pianist cleverly disguised as the piano man at the bar.

Beautiful location

The Holiday Inn , Chicago mart plaza is situated right on the river. Gives a beautiful view of the city. Very accessible by train and you don't even have to walk outside in bad weather. The hotel adjoins the merchandise mart which has a walkway to the hotel.

Great location

The Holiday Inn Mart Plaza hotel was in a great location for our business needs (Merchandise Mart) and close enough to walk to just about anywhere downtown. The corner rooms (king) had an amazing view of the city. The rooms were clean and the beds were very comfortable. I would recommend this hotel to anyone staying in Chicago.

I was in town for an interview and had a very easy stay. The location was perfect in a great part of town. Breakfast was excellent and the staff was very attentive. I like the lobby lounge that has a great view of the city. I had no issues.

Great place to stay if you have business in Downtown Chicago

Everything about the hotel was superb except for the fitness center. Some of the weight machines were broken.
