This hotel is very old and has not been updated in many years. There is a bar downstairs, but both times I've tried it the service was terrible. On the other hand the service at breakfast was GREAT! I would not stay there again.

I was at the Holiday in two weeks ago for a counseling conference. The staff were very friendly, helpful, and accommodating particularly John and Akram. There was a mix up with on our catered meetings, but serious efforts by hotel staff were taken to resolve the mistake to an acceptable, degree. My group was still rather disappointed. . . Overall, my experience was positive and I would return.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by AlbanyParkWalker Clean and quiet
Clean, quiet, with comfortable beds. Slept in two rooms over six nights while my home was reconstructed. Free WiFi is greatly appreciated.
In both bathrooms the mirror frame was too low to pull up the sink stopper, a problem for contact lens wearers who do not want to lose their lenses down the drain.
Treadmills in fitness room do not work well though I managed to figure one of them out.
Great location with several restaurants near by.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by HappyGirl72 The staff were friendly, but building and banquet area needs improvement.
I enjoyed the conference I attended at Holiday Inn Skokie. However, the rooms were poorly lit. My shower was cold and the room was not as fresh and clean as I would have expected in comparison to other Holiday Inns that I have stayed in throughout the region. I was really disappointed that the staff members started turning off the lights at the reception at 10:15 when many people were still socializing...that was a big part of what I looked forward to in attending the conference. I understand that the staff had jobs to do, but feel they could have chosen to clean up/ shut down the area in a manner that could have still been conducive to allowing guests to still socialize (as that is why we came to the conference). I could not recommend this site for future conferences. It appeared that the staff were not well trained for this event--but they were very kind and friendly.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by someone001 Noisy room
This hotel is too old. All AC/heating units are old and make loud noise. I first thought it's only my room that happen to have a bad one. But after changing to another room, it's same noisy, even you turn off the unit. The noise come in from the whole building through the heating vent. Can't sleep well!

We had to be in town for my daughter's second round interview with Green Corps at Northwestern University. This property is centrally located and the room was spacious and clean. We did not have food or beverage on site but the smells coming from the restaurant on the property were delicious! It looks as if this property has had some renovations recently - one thing that may have been overlooked is the wallpaper in the rooms and bathrooms. That should be next on your list!

There are not many hotels in this particular area. This hotel has easy access to I-94, the room was clean and quiet and the food and beverage service was above average. We didn't use the pool but others were enjoying it. The staff was very friendly and accomodating. We would definitely stay there again.

Very nice & clean with everything you need right on premises. About 5 miles from Loyola University where my grandson goes to school... made it worth the ride with college discount.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Lynard55 Excellent experience.
We recently stayed at the Chicago North Shore Holiday Inn (Skokie), and had an excellent experience in every aspect of our stay. The room size was ample, the king bed was comfortable, the counter area around the sink in the bathroom was roomy enough to hold all our toiletries and then some, and the room was extremely clean and quiet. The front desk staff was pleasant and accommodating and our room rate was a great value.
I know we'll be back!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by GinaW What a GREAT experience!
We were in for a conference hosted by Holiday Inn and opted to make our reservations there for ease. What a good choice! Our room was quite--I didn't hear neighboring showers or hallway voices or housekeeping banging. The bathroom was roomy enough that I didn't feel crammed into a closet. The bed was comfortable. The only suggestion I would make is that there are more vending areas than currently exist.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by momndadofbride A wonderful place to stay
The staff was so accomodating. We were there with two over 90 year olds. They gave us two adjoining rooms (one handicapped for them). They always made sure everything was good. The breakfast there was delicious. Even though the breakfast is not included, they gave us coupons that covered the costs of 2 of the buffets. We will stay there again when we are in Chicago next time. Its also in a quieter part of Chicago but still near enough.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by MAKD2013 OK for 1 night stay
I travel frequently for business so where I stay tends to be close to where I need to go that has parking. I opted not to leave for dinner because I was warned by the front desk that there was an event and parking would be limited following 6pm. Bar Louis was nice and the food was good. Breakfast at the Corner Bakery and Cafe was excellent, I wish I would have went for dinner the previous evening but was fearful I wouldn't have a spot to park. The beds in this hotel are very hard. When I opened a clean hand towel I found hair. There was also hair in the bathtub/shower.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Sadie2013 A great place to stay
The hotel location was good. There were things to do if you didn't want to go downtown. The bus stop was close to take you to the Howard Station. The Indoor pool and Spa was nice and relaxing. The hotel itself was very clean. The rooms were nice and cozy. The Staff were friendly. I will definitely stay here again.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by NUalum A great place to stay in the Chicago suburbs
I had a great stay at this hotel.
Everyone on the staff was friendly, and having lemonade and water with orange slices in the lobby was a nice touch.
Getting some free breakfast coupons and a treat bag at check-in for being a rewards-club member was a pleasant, unexpected surprise.
The indoor pool was beautiful, and the water temperature was great -- not too hot and not too cold.
Having a refrigerator and a microwave, along with an easy-to-work coffee maker, in the room was great. The room was really comfortable.
The hotel is close to a bus stop, so you can take a bus right to the Howard Street L station if you are relying on public transportation to get around. The bus comes about every 40 minutes.

There was no outside noise and even though there was a party we could see from our room, there was no noise from it. We loved the nicwe firm mattress. Also the room darkening curtains made for a very relaxing experience.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by TheMule Very Thin Walls
The hotel has a nice overall appearance. The front desk clerk was very friendly. The parking lot was completely full in front. We had to walk quite a ways around the back after finding an open spot in the annex parking area. The good thing is that there is no additional fee for parking.
The room was sort of outdated looking, but very clean. The toilet seemed very small. The beds were comfortable. But the walls...the walls seemed paper thin. I could hear everything said in the room next to us, from normal conversation to louder excitement. Needless to say, we did not get a good night of sleep, as the people in the next room were quite loud and were up very early.
After finally falling back asleep, housekeeping knocked on the door at 8:50am. That was it for any chance of more sleep. Overall, the hotel is clean and the beds comfortable. But if you need a good night of sleep, you might not get it.

I had no water pressure in the morning so I couldn't have a shower. The room was really warm and humid and it just was a good place to stay. The food was good.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Brijesh Excellent hotel @ Skokie
Much better than the impression gathered from net search & surveys. Location is quite convenient, again - better than it appeared from the websites. A short walk from mall where you get everything that may be needed for a stay. Across the road from bus-stop. Convenient connection to Chicago through Chicago-swift / subway.
If you've something to do in Skokie - this is probably the best place to stay.
Linda at the reception was GREAT... genuinely warm and affectionate, genuinely efficient.
