The service the whole staff had offered was just welcoming. It was a pleasant stay overnight and the rooms were clean and also had that home feeling to them. If your looking for a great overnight experience i would recommend this hotel for sure.

Chicago getaway

We were pleased with our hotel in Chicago. The hotel staff accommodated us with a nice 4th floor room, which included a refrigerator and microwave, which we requested. We were pleased that it had a mini kitchen with a sink as well. The bathroom was clean and the bed was comfortable. We faced the parking lot in the back, which was quieter than on the street, which we requested as well. Breakfast was very good and reasonably priced. The waitress was very friendly each morning. We would stay here again.

It served its purpose

Our stay at the Holiday Inn was uneventful. The room was typical. Business center was adequate. Location was really convenient for us - steps from a blue line train stop and easily walkable from the UIC campus and the loop.

Nice stay, great location.

Hotel is located just a block from the blue line, and right off I-290, making travel to and from the hotel incredibly simple. The staff was great, and the attached restaurants are fine.

The good and the bad

The pool is great!!!!! but they charge for parking. The name of the hotel is not easy to find let alone the drive way to the front door.

friendly place. nice rooftop pool.

Also PH floor laundry facilities near beautiful pool. Stayed there during Phish shows at UIC Chicago. The staff was very welcoming to the Phish Phans. The staff took it in stride when they discovered the ISH painted by the PH button on the elevator. Thank you for a real good time! They have a smoking floor. Sign up for the club to save on parking. Can walk to many great Chicago places. Good times!!

Money-saving tip: Short walk from hotel

Find a bus stop, there's a map with all the bus numbers and where do they go. A lot cheaper than taxis by a mile.
