Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by LSB84 Lack of customer service
When we checked in we were not acknowledged as Platinum members. The girl at the front desk was more interested in her personal phone call, than taking care of us. The first room we were given, the TV in the bedroom didn't work. We had to call for maintenance, which some time. Just to find out, it couldn't be fixed and we had to move rooms. Our second room was fine. But you would think that the front desk would have called us or said something to as, when we were walking out the door, to make sure everything was okay. They don't offer a free breakfast, but they could have least offered us that for our troubles. Air conditioner is loud. Hotel was loud and busy the weekend we were there. Didn't go in the pool or hot tub, because of the many kids. We booked with points and were told we would be refunded our first nights stay, but still have not seen any refund yet. Positive: We were given an upgrade to a suite before we arrived.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Old traveler Great experience
I travel a lot, and have now decided to book Holiday Inns or HIExpress hotels whenever possible. I travel alone mostly, and I have found the restaurants in the Hol Inns have been excellent in quality and value. The breakfasts in the HI Express hotels is also excellent, and very often have an adjacent restaurant.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by lambeth our stay at Bolingbrook July 10 to 13
My family of 4 visited Chicago for a soccer tournament. We had two teams stay at the hotel. We have not once been able to stay in a location were they are able to put us all together. Parents and players stayed on all 5 floors. We arrived on Thursday and stayed till Sunday. Our room was located on the third floor second from the end. early hour, when being woke up more than once, we found out that the end rooms are suites and the one next to us was a stag party. not much sleep and the front desk could not change anything because of the hotel being full.
Saturday night the same room next to us was host to a wedding party. at 1 am I called down to the front desk who then had them quiet down some what. We left feeling exhausted with 2 nights of VERY interrupted and inconvenient sleep. It would seem to us that if you know what these end rooms are for and the noise potential, then those who book in advance should not be placed there and perhaps it should be for the last minute bookings, being upfront about it. The internet was very poor and is not able to handle the large amount of guests using the system. We were informed it was because we were from Canada!! Hmmmmm.....that is a new one when it comes to wi-fi being an amenity.
The breakfast was good. Service was slow but it was a large volume to look after. Room amenities were good and if they had not been so full, it probably would have been a great overall stay.

I arrived a little early and there were no rooms ready. I asked to make sure my room would be available and I was told yes. I had some work to attend to and came back later that afternoon and checked in to find that the single king room I had requested on line was not available and they were sorry!. .I can stay at any hotel of my choosing, and the next time in this area I will stay elsewhere. Sorry.
Also the coffee pot in the lobby was empty both mornings.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 Great Hotel!
We've stayed here a couple of times and REALLY enjoy it! The staff is great, the beds are COMFORTABLE, and the ambiance is so warm. The rooms are always cozy, clean, and soft. The only thing that would be the BEST is having a free breakfast. Normally, we like to stay somewhere that at least provides a bagel when we are rushing out the door to a meeting. But in any case, there is a Starbucks down the street, and a Family Restaurant if you want to have a full breakfast by some great Chicago folks. Thanks for all the care you give us!!

All the lightbulbs in the bathroom had burned out other than the heat lamp. When I told the desk person on the way out, she argued with me that I must not have found the right switch. I found two that did nothing, pretty sure I understand how they were supposed to do though.
Wallpaper was falling off the walls under the sink and near the tub. Overall feel of the place is dingy and old.
The air conditioner is loud and the thermostat is on it instead of across the room like in many other hotels so turns itself on and off constantly through the night.
Worst, the internet is terribly slow. Couldn't get my work done without tethering my phone and use that for data instead.
Breakfast is ok, though expensive. Night manager told another customer that "This isn't a Holiday Inn Express" as explanation. Last time I was here I reserved a king and got a room with a smaller bed. His answer was basically that I was stuck with it, too bad. It's been a few months, so I forgot and came back this time.
I was in town to visit a customer who is about three blocks away so the location is good, but even though I'm a Gold Rewards member with Holiday Inn, next time I'm going to stay at one of the other hotels right next door to this one.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by TheYeti Decent location but odd staff and noisy
I checked in late and the receptionist almost seemed irked to see me when i arrived. There was explanation of amenities until I asked. Additionally, the room could have been much cleaner. My biggest regret about this location was the fact that they didn't seem to care about the guests on the first floor much since they felt it was okay to do landscaping right outside the window at 8am. (Needless to say that I wasn't able to sleep past 8 even though I had gotten in late after a long night at a wedding reception)

I used my reward points and was still charged $42 in "accomidation" fees and then taxes on top of that!!!!
Never had I before been charged to redeem reward points, what a joke!
Immediately after check in room card did not work. Elevator incredibly slow. The air conditioner did not work so got no sleep due to the room being too hot. Got room service. The food was ok but not really worth what it cost.

We had a wonderful weekend. We were able to find nearby shopping and local places of interest. The pool was wonderful. Breakfast had a very appetizing variety.
Room designed so that 4 of us were able to get ready without getting in each others way. Hair dryer, iron

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by alwaysflying average stay at an average hotel
Check-in took about 15 minutes, the room key needed re-validating several times during my 6-day stay (on the last night of my stay, when I got locked out of my room, and asked at the front desk for my key to be re-validated, the night manager rather rudely told me that I did not know how to use the room key properly, that was why I wasn't able to open the room door, and only after 15 minutes of "discussion" did he grudgingly go upstairs with me and my key to try to open the door himself...he wasn't able to open the door either). No room upgrade for my Platinum status, no other perks offered other than a choice between the welcome bonus package (a small bottle of water) or 500 points. I chose 500 points, and the 500 points did not get posted in my account until two days after check-out (after repeated enquiries at the front desk). No offer of free breakfast. Complimentary coffee is offered in the lobby for a few hours each morning. Room and hotel decor is dated, with fraying wallpaper and chipped/scratched bath-tub. All in all, a very average stay at a very average hotel.

The building itself is in need of a little facelift but the staff is excellent. I experienced a lot of smiling faces and the staff made me feel welcomed. The breakfast buffet was very good. Several items to choose from and very hot and fresh. This was a full breakfast buffet not that quick set up you find at other hotels. Very short drive into Chicago.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Goldrunner88 Old looks and shower not working!!!
When I reached the hotel it took the receptionist 20 minutes to check me in!!! Not acceptable! There were 4 people in a line behind me trying to check in and the receptionist did not bother to fasten the process. She was busy checking some personal stuff on her computer. My reservation through my Company includes breakfast and she did not have it notified! This is absolutely unacceptable!!! The hotel smells old! Room quality is terrible! And when I woke up in the morning the shower did not work!!! I was in a hurry and had to leave for a meeting without a shower!! Frustrated with this property. Never going to stay here ever again!!!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Goleta_guy Convenient for visiting Argonne National Lab
I had a morning meeting at Argonne National Lab to discuss my company's technology with several scientists at ANL and this hotel location allowed me to relax the night before the meeting and have only a short commute to the lab location. I arrived late so I did not have any time to try out any of the properties amenities. The A/C did tend to cycle on and off a lot and the fan was a bit loud, but those were only minor issues. Room was clean but it seems that finding a power receptacle near the bed was not easy to keep my phone (which I use as an alarm clock) charged up over night.

Everything was great except the shower.. The shower water temp was scalding and I couldnt adjust it. Then when I turned it off to see if that would help - the water wouldnt turn on in the shower at all. I notified the front desk. I aksed for some points for the inconvienence, Front desk said he would recommend that.

The staff at this facility is extremely friendly. The front desk staff greeted me by name. This means alot when you travel three out of four weeks. I had a minor problem with the TV controller and the maintenace staff resolved the problem within 10 minutes. Once again they greeted me by name and asked if there was anything else they could do. The director of maintenace, David called to make sure everything was done and if I was satisfied. I really appreciated his concern. He was polite and very professional.
