A great view of Chicago River

In and Out parking was convenient and reasonable for Chicago. Although not near the main drag for shopping and buses, there were many businesses within walking distance if you knew where you wanted to go. Would try the water taxis next time since they were so close to hotel.

For "hop on/hop off" shuttles, would use Chicago Tours instead of Grayline Tours because they seemed to have 3X the number of shuttles.

Clean and good location.

This Holiday Inn in Chicago overlooks the river and had easy access to shopping and public transportation. It was clean and comfortable and all our needs were met.

amazing view on the city

the room (number 1768) with 2 double beds was huge. The view on the city was amazing. However, no minibar in the room. For environmental stuff they just provide one small shampoo or conditioner, etc.. you have always to call the reception to ask for more if you need. They are really friendly. The location was perfect, near to everything. Breakfast was not included, but there 's a Deli downstairs and you can have breakfast at the near marchandise markt (there's a tunnel connecting the hotel building to the marchandise markt)

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.

"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.)
