Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Roadtripper2014 Comfortable clean room
This Holiday Inn was clean and comfortable offering a good value. the CTA station was a short walk across the street allowing easy access to the downtown tourist areas.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by mrlam Hotel at reasonable price
If you want to stay at a decent hotel, but are not willing to pay a high price for a same level hotel in downtown area, you may consider this hotel.
You can reach downtown by subway in around 30 min.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by JayBlo Good for Step 2 CS
This hotel has made me a believer in Holiday Inn. Before staying here I was a bit skeptical but because I was only staying for one night prior to taking the USMLE Step 2 CS exam I decided to give it a try. They offer a discounted price to students taking this exam and it was well worth the money spent. It's not far from the center where you take the exam. In fact, it is within walking distance however I would never walk to an exam because I'd be too anxious. I drove and with traffic it probably took me 6 minutes at most. If I'm not mistaken the shuttle may even drop you off there.
The staff is very friendly and extremely attentive to your needs. I requested a non-smoking, quiet room and they did not disappoint. The room was clean. Bed was comfy, and they have a refrigerator in the room if you plan to take a perishable bag lunch with you to the exam.
The restaurant in the hotel had 1/2 off appetizers from 4-7 which was during the time I arrived and the fridge definitely came in handy.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by DalMar Great hotel well located
An older property, but well maintained. Comfortable beds, and even though right across from the elevator on a Saturday night room was very quiet.
Will definitely use next time in Chicago.
Good access to trains, expressway, O'hare airport, etc..

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by madpinkgal Staff was Awesome....
Overnight layover for flights from ORD, booked online for shuttle service, Brand, etc. Had to call for info on how to locate the shuttle, but when I did the staff was very nice. Late arrivals on both layovers and had no issues with either one. Again, staff was super nice and very helpful! Was also nice to get there and have food available at the Restaurant located within the hotel.

Hotel is beautiful outside and in lobby area. Bar Louie was even great. However, elevator, hallways, and rooms STUNK to high heaven. We had to switch hotels. Staff was courteous and accommodating, that is for sure...but unfortunately the smell was just too much to handle.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Tazdevil Great hotel, terrible return shuttle service
Stayed at this hotel for the park and stay, as we were heading to St Maarten early the next morning. Enjoyed some cocktails in the bar before we went to bed. Very nice place and great staff to assist us. The shuttle to the airport was on time and wonderful. Unfortunately, after a long day on the airplane and flight home, we were expecting a shuttle to arrive within 15 minutes, per the lady we called at the front desk. well that 15 minutes turned into 45 minutes, yet still no shuttle driver. Called again and the lady said he should be there, but not sure if he goes to the INternational terminal first or last. Well either way, we have been standing for 45 minutes and not one Holiday Inn shuttle came by. Needless to say, we ended up taking a taxi to the hotel to get our car at a cost of $20, which we should not have had to pay. Did not express my disappointment with the hotel because I had another 2 1/2 hour drive home and did not want to get too angry on that drive home. Will probably not use this place again for a park and stay, plenty others at a more reasonable price.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Honey Bun Roomy, comfortable and an overall enjoyable stay
Front desk staff attitude could be much better; however, my stay at the Holiday Inn was very comfortable and its proximity to O'hare was desirable. Shuttle bus was excellent.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by cmcglade5 Great Value, Great Service
Best value for the area. Easy access to public transportation. Quick Ride to O'hare airport via shuttle, (5 minutes).Very friendly staff at desk and at food and beverage outlets, (including room service). Only con was that I personally am not interested in a TemperPedic style mattress. Extra effort was given by housekeeping staff. Comfortable lobby, having to wait after check out for a delayed flight. Will return.

Our stay at the Holiday Inn near O'Hare was excellent to say the least. I was immediately greeted as an iHG member and with a smile. I also received a personal welcome call. I was greatly satisfied with the set up and cleanliness of the room. It was pretty luxurious! I highly recommend it!

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by mdfmaf2001 A few concerns and no response from management
I had a few concerns with my stay, upon check-out however there was a line at the front desk and I did not have time to wait to address my concerns with a manager. I submitted my concerns to IHG and was told repeatedly a manager would contact me and I never received any response. As a platinum member I was very dissapointed with the lack of response.
Rooms were OK, suprisingly not too noisy being so close to O'Hare. Traffic is slow around this area so that is probably the reason for shuttle delays.
Upon check-in I was waiting in the IHG member line but they overlooked me and continued helping guests that walked through the doors after me. I had to then join the other line when several people filled in while I was in the IHG line apparently invisible. I was given an update and points or a snack for being a platinum member.
The amount I was charged for room service breakfast was a lot more than what was on the door hanger order form. The order form stated that the breakfast was $11.00 and it said to make a juice selection and a coffee selection. It also mentioned gratuity would be added. When it arrived I was charged $9.95 for the meal, $2.75 for the coffee and $3.00 for the juice. I didn’t even want 2 drinks but the form asked me to select them so I did. In addition there was a $3.00 fee to deliver in addition to the automatic gratuity. This left my breakfast at $22.52 when I thought it would be around $13.00.
Another thing that would be an easy fix is that the workout room did not have anything to spray down the equipment to clean in between uses. I found that extremely disturbing and didn't use any other equipment at that point.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by john1136 Comfortable bed. poor breakfast service in restaurantO
Hotel is usually fairly easy to access from local Blue Line station but currently it is almost impossible to use due to road and bridge construction work in between the hotel and station. On one occasion, I did manage to get the airport van to drop me off there, but the reception staff did not seem too keen on me so using it..
Breakfast service in the restaurant was exceptionally poor on the one occasion that I used it. That was enough. The staff were very inattentive and I had to chase them to get served.
However, the service in the restaurant in the evening was a much better experience and the staff could not have been more attentive and efficient, as well as being very pleasant. The main downside was that it was not a pleasant place to relax and enjoy a meal, as it was extremely noisy with much loud music..

we were told by the shuttle driver to back up against the wall so our tire wouldn't get stolen while we were gone for 5 days, guess what? We did as he said and came back to NO spare tire! It was stolen! Hotel did nothing to compensate!

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by 19Nickname67 Dissapointed
The rooms had stains everywhere. I did not expect great accommodations with a smoking room but the stench in the entire hallway that smelled like that of a food exhaust was disgusting. People walked around with napkins in front of their mouth. The same stench came thru the vents into the room as well as thru the window. Awful!!! Also, the bathtub has water accumulating underneath it. It is only a matter of time for any type of growth. The toilet seat was loose. The bedding /mattress were torn. The remote control was sticky.
I give good or even excellent feedback when I experience such. But this was just not the case. Also, you may want to tell people that the stairway ending at Bar Louis door is closed at that level as the door is locked at level 1 (Bar).

We stay her relatively often. My wife has family in the area. Though there are many other places we could stay, we keep coming back here because of the staff. They regularly go above and beyond what they need to do to insure our comfort.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Roseannem Lovely attentive staff, great food and drinks
Everything about this hotel is A number 1 in our book...save for the return shuttle service from the airport to retrieve our car. Not only is the shuttle pick up area somewhat hidden and confusing at Ohare Airport...but the return shuttle took way too long to pick us up! Every half hour should mean every half hour, not whenever we get around to it. Another guest waited over an hour to be picked up.
