This is a relatively new hotel just off Interstate 80 in Ottawa, IL. It's nicely decorated with a more modern look. The staff is very friendly and helpful. There are several restaurants nearby, some walking distance, which makes it very convenient. Highly recommended

The rooms were very clean and spacious. The staff was friendly and check in went very smooth also. The bathroom was pleasantly supplied with really good and nice toiletries. I would definitely stay again if I’m back to this area but was here for a wedding this time.

This was a 3 month old hotel! It was very pleasant since it was so clean and new. Also, the staff went out of their way to be welcoming and cheerful. The breakfast was great, and so was the gym. The gym had cardio equipment as well as weights and was also very clean.

OK, I have stayed at maybe 100 HIE's and I don't think I've ever had a better staff! From the moment we arrived until we left. I was using points for a free night, yet as a Platinum member, I was upgraded to.a suite, which I didn't expect. We needed advice on where to go for dinner, how to plug in my electric car, supplies to eat our meal, which we brought in and the restaurant didn't provide and everything we asked was provided and then some. Special thanks to Alesha, Nikki and Luis. Then at breakfast this morning, we had one of the best breakfasts, everything was fresh, the biscuits were perfect, the cinnamon rolls were amazing, the coffee was fresh and the server Pat, continued on the amazing service of the staff of this property. This hotel is only a few months old but you could see how proud everyone is to work there. The room was new and the bed amazingly comfortable, the bathroom with a very large shower was also excellent. We look forward to returning to this property next time we visit the area!

This was my first time in Ottawa and I was pleasantly surprised with this hotel as well as the great downtown area. The hotel was clean, comfortable, and the staff was very friendly. I was a parent traveling along with a tennis team. When I was solo I felt safe in the area. Tip: I missed the drive the first time going by. I thought I would be able to access the hotel from the car dealership but it was not connected.

We always try to stay in Holiday Inn Express when we travel and this one is very nice. Appears to be new. Breakfast area is great. Rooms are clean and all public areas are very well maintained. All of the staff we encountered were very friendly.

Hotel started to operated 2 months, rooms are big, spacious, and and Brand new. Short but nice stay. Staff are really polite and helpful. Thanks to the team for this stay. Nice hotel to visit Starved rock and Matthiessen Park. Enjoy

Clean and fresh, this hotel was remarkably quiet. Rooms are a nice size with sparkling bathrooms and fluffy towels. Decent breakfast, however real cream for coffee would be a plus! Will stay here again when we hit the area for outdoor activities.

This hotel appears to be brand new - rooms were large, a/c worked wonderfully, and everything was very clean. Kudos to the staff - professional, courteous, and kind. Shout out to Stephanie who welcomed me to breakfast and checked me out of the hotel. Highly recommend.
