Great business amenities

My stay at the Holiday Inn was very comfortable, and enjoyable. I loved the location, right in the heart of downtown Chicago. There were many places of interest and restaurants near by.

Very accomodating

From check in to check out the staff and management of this hotel were welcoming, friendly and helpful. Although the restaurant did not appear visually appealing at first when we actually tried it it was quite adequate for breakfast and a casual lunch or dinner. Rooms was clean and adequate for us. It would be nice to have a refigerator in the room.

excellent staff

Despite the fact that the Holiday Inn Hotel and Suites in Downtown Chicago was an older hotel and needed updating, the staff made my stay very postitive. I would normally have stayed at a more upscale hotel (everything else was booked and I had no choice) but the entire staff of employees I dealt with those four days were always extremely polite and had a fabulous attitude. This was consistent the entire time, whether it was the bartender, bell hop, front desk and even maintenence people in the elevator. All asked if they could help me throughout my stay and if I was having a good time during my stay in Chicago. In my twenty-five years of staying in hotels I have never had such consistent and genuine friendliness from any other hotel, even in the much more upscale chains. At this hotel you will definately be taken care of.

There are some good Italian restaurants and all kinds of shops to walk to. For less than $6 a taxi will take you to Michigan Avenue for top of the line shopping.

Trip to Chicao

The Holiday Inn in the west loop in Chicago is located close to the Finnacial district close to Dowtown Chicago. The room was very comfortable and clean, and the staff was really friendly and helpfull. I will return to the same Hotel.

It Was Okay

My experience was 50/50 here. When I checked in, my room key wouldn't work at first... and then it wouldn't work the second time... and then I had to go get it fixed a third time until it finally worked. Once I got in, the room was extremely comfy. I loved the king sized bed, 2 different types of pillows (soft & firm), the beautiful TV, and the A/C (best part of the room). The bathroom was extremely clean. Literally spotless!! Not really sure if this is a downside but there were literally a million towels in there in all sizes. Didn't know why one small bathroom needed 5 bath towels and at least 10 hand towels. Overall, this place was a great experience. I'm definitely staying here again when I go back to Chicago!!
