The suite was not ready. Dirty linens were still on the floor. Air conditioner in the living room and bedroom were dirty, full of dust, very loud. I reserve for a non smoking room but it was not a non smoking room. The smell was horrible.

The main reason we chose this hotel was because of the rooftop pool; however, it was closed due prior rain days and this was not communicated with us prior to check in. Additionally, Greek Town and the West Loop restaurants were near by, but not within walking distance. We had to drive everywhere, especially with children, which was not very convenient.

It was very near and convenient to Union Station.

Not great location for walking to anything. Windows were thin so you could hear everything outside which caused poor sleep. Staff was nice. Older hotel and a little outdated in some areas. Small bathrooms.

I like the rooms, which was provided. It is clean and near to all the places we can visit in downtown.

The sink didn’t work. I had to wash my hands with bottled water. There was black hair in the bathroom — I am a red head. The neighborhood was seedy, and the room was loud.

Everyone was very friendly and accommodating. We enjoyed using the pool

Not the best hotel in town. Has many misleading advertising ads in which they offer you something and once you get there they actually charge you for them.

This hotel is not even one block from the Clinton station of the Blue Line (from ORD) and is very secure, even late at night. If you are walking to Union Station (Amtrak, commuter trains), you go up Clinton Street for about 3 blocks and turn right on Jackson street and use the entrance to the Grand Lobby about a half a block in on Jackson. This is about the ONLY hotel that is in walking distance to Union Station. The rooms are typical for a Holiday Inn and the internet WIFI is free and fast. The security guard was so helpful in telling me the safest way to walk to Union Station. The late night and early morning staff are friendly and helpful. The bed was comfortable and the hotel was quiet.

We enjoyed our stay at the Holiday Inn in Chicago. My son lives right across the street so the convenience factor was wonderful. There is a subway stop right across the street and the bus and train station are close as well. I can't say enough about how friendly the staff was. They even sent me texts to ask if we were satisfied with our room.

Hotel was convenient to public transportation . Staff was excellent. I would recommend this hotel to friends.

This hotel is super convenient to the blue line if you are traveling to/from ohare. The front desk staff was friendly and offered us coupons for free breakfast. The breakfast has lots of hot and cold options but they also have a menu to order off of if you prefer that. Hotel seems old but they've managed to keep it clean. It just felt a bit warn out. Lots of places to walk to if you don't mind putting in a few miles over the day. Helicopters doing something construction wise were loud as was nearby traffic. We'd stay again as the price was reasonable and location convenient.

Gal was a little rude upon check in. She got a little nicer when I purchased a second room

Eating, entertainment, train. Staff very helpful. Room comfortable. Needed grab bars and a little more room in bathroom for handicapped. The room was surprisingly quiet for being on a busy corner.

The hotel is easily accessible from the airport and the train station. Don't let the map fool you into thinking the hotel is a 3-5 block distance from the station. It is literally just outside the train station. The hotel staff is very accommodating and the room is very clean. There is a bar in the hotel that serves amazing french fries and a restaurant that serves great pancakes for breakfast. In addition, the hotel is a great place to stay when you are doing campus visit to University of Illinois-Chicago. It takes 3 minutes to walk to the campus. You can also walk 5 blocks and you are in downtown area. Regardless, the train station takes you everywhere in the city. In short, I had an amazing time in the hotel. My room oversees the snow covered city and its a great view to wake up to while you sip your morning coffee.

Had a good overall experience. The hotel could use some minor repairs in the the rooms and maybe some updates. Other than that it was a comfortable experience

Sorry for the inconveniences this may cause. We are a non smoking hotel but guest sometimes do not follow rules but consequences are severe.
