Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by ThisIsMyNickname87654 Great place to stay near the Loop
Room was very comfortable, and I was pleasantly surprised to learn that the hotel is only a block from the Blue Line. It made getting around Chicago very easy. I will probably stay here again.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by mk71234 Great Hotel
Great Hotel! The hotel staff make you feel like you're staying at a Bed and Breakfast! The staff always greets you when you enter the hotel, leave the hotel or if you're just coming down from the room to eat breakfast in their convenient cafe. The front desk staff are more than accomodating. When we needed directions to ride the subway, Tommie was more than helpful in helping us naviagate Chicago's subway system. When we decided to stay an extra day, because the hotel was just wonderful and there still was more we wanted to see, the front desk were more than helpful in accomodating our request. The valet didn't rush you when you checked in to get all your belongings out of the car, they allowed you to park your car and get your belongings and then hand in your keys when you were ready. It's only a short walk to restaurants and the neighborhood Starbucks, which you'll need in Chicago when it's cold! Also, loved that hotel was only steps away from the Blue Line, so we were able to hop on the subway and go anywhere we wanted in Chicago and return home tired but knowing the train would let us off almost right in front of the hotel. We had a two room suite, which was wonderful with a teenager. And our room was right next to the interstate and we didn't hear any noise at all. One of the great perks of the hotel was having a business center so I could print off tickets to events or maps to the many places that my husband wanted to see. And finally, it was so wonderful to come back each day and find my bed made and room tidied up. As a stay at home mom who cleans the house everyday, that was such a blessing to me! We will stay at this hotel whenever we are in Chicago again!

Being a downtown hotel I was quiet impressed on how amazing the hotel and amenities turned out to be! Shout out to the restaurant very tasty food both on the buffet and menu, Candice was very helpful on recommending places to visit,definitely a hard working employee you have. Front desk was very friendly especially Alina! Will definitely stay here again was worth every penny.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 Disappointed
Looks nothing like the photos on line , charged extra for parking , toilet overflowed 4 times, not within walking distance to downtown , overpriced snacks from the 24hr shop and was told vending machines not reliable so for same thing they charged three to
Times more than what machine had it for and nothing wrong with vending machine. Room dirty and old and we actually had a suite. Not enough towels of shampoo for the number of guests room was reserved for. Friendly staff except for rough Caucasian lady with long black hair who made me wait to ck out .

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by sanh091 Wonderful Stay!
I was so impressed from the beginning to the end of our stay! Sam and the staff went over and above the call of duty to check us in early and recommended some fabulous eateries to which just added to the experience. Our waitress (wish I could remember her name) at Sunny's dd a fabulous job of bringing us drinks as well.
A heartfelt thank you and we'll be sure to return on our next trip to the Windy City!

I picked this hotel because of the location and it met my demands for that and a place to sleep. Nothing fancy, no "wow" factor - just a good place to stay.

This hotel is conveniently located to the Clinton subway stop on the Blue Line. It is also close to other restaurants on Clinton. The staff is very friendly and willing to help with suggestions about places to eat and go.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by nothappy99 poor location and worse service
Location is very poor. The abandoned post office is right next door and if you are planning on walking anywhere downtown, you will have to walk past it which is not pleasant especially at night.
Hotel was not very clean and we especially enjoyed the cleaning staff leaving out TV turned on all day while we were out. Management was not really interested in addressing or solving our issues.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by qm5kp0 guest
overall pretty good but the hotel is going to have to make the walls
more soundproof. You can here everything just above a whisper
in adjoining rooms. I tried to keep my tv volume low because
I know I could hear it from the other rooms next to me.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Mark65336 Great place to stay!
I have stayed here a couple times and have had great service both times I have stayed. I take the train into town and the hotel is within walking distance of Union Station, and there is also a Blue Line Station right down the corner so it is extremely easy to get around town. There is parking available for what looked like a reasonable rate for Chicago. Getting a cab was very easy as well. I think the most we ever waited to take a cab was 3 minutes. Plus if you are an IHG Rewards Club Member you can also get a late checkout if possible. Usual checkout time is noon and our train didn't leave until 2 and we were able to check out at 2 which was also really nice. If you're in the area check out a great diner down the street called White Palace, it's amazing!

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by ccc74 Date night
My wife and I came to Chicago for a concert at the Chicago Theater on 10/6/13. The staff was friendly, at check-in. The room was adequate for one night, so I thought. We went downstairs to eat and after being left at our table for 30mins, we paid for our drinks and left. We had a great time at the concert and returned to our room. The bedding is horrible. My wife and I hardly slept due to the obviously poor mattress and the 4 lumpy pillows that you could not get flat if you tried. The location is convenient, but a good nights sleep it is not!!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Michigan5 Outstanding Service
I brought my young children with me on a Chicago area vacation and stayed at the Downtown Holiday Inn. The staff was wonderful and extremely helpful. They were the best part of our stay. The room was average because the furniture is older and well worn. The hotel location was perfect for the 'Sears' tower and other site seeing walks we took around downtown. It was also nicely located to the popular attractions like Shedd's and the museum of science. It is also only a short block from the train station. The roof top pool was a fun way to end the evening.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Patterson Good Staff with a real desire to sever their guests
The staff is very accommodating from the minute you check in until you leave in your cab.
The hotel is under a program of improvement that makes it more attractive, but being an older facility, it still looks like it was designed in the 70's.
My only complaint is the location, at least three long Chicago city blocks from anything. Plan on taking a cab anywhere you go. Cabs are plentiful.

I am in Chicago several times a year on business and I am constantly amazed by the staff at the Holiday Inn Downtown. Every employee I passed greeted me with a Good Morning, and most of them called me by name. I don't know how they remember my name, but it sure makes me feel welcome!

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Mario88 Bad stay. Beds were very nice
The room was falling apart and dirty. There were hairs on towels and in the tub. The shower rod was falling off the wall. I was able to have a snack and a beer at the lounge. The food was not prepared properlly the beer was stall. I also had breakfast the next morning the food then was better prepared. I planned a trip from New York to Seattle but quality of this hotel force me to change my lodging plans. I was planning to stay in holiday inn every evening but I just couldn't. I don't think I will be staying in a holiday inn again. Thank you for your time and for reading my review.

Good location, close enough to downtown and transportation. Clean facilities. The attached restaurant (and room service) is good quality food with great service. The front desk staff are very friendly and accommodating. We had noisy neighbors, and they switched us to another floor in a room that was better than our previous! Can't beat parking for a penny!!

Could not have been treated better by the staff. From valet, to front desk at check in, to staff behind the counter recommending a great Chicago style pizza place that delivered after the Sox game, to staff at check out, treated spectacularly. Will definitely be staying here next time I'm around for a Sox game.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Dee30 Wish there were a 'Very Good' category
It's hard to give any place an 'EXCELLENT' ... so I had to settle for 'GOOD'. But in actuality, it was a sound and resilient 'VERY GOOD'. The staff were very helpful with things like walking directions, extra towels, etc. The room was very clean and comfortable ... with awesome pillows. The pool was very nice, along with the exercise and media room. And the breakfast buffet was awesome - with biscuits and gravy ... ymmm. I don't usually care much for those. We will definitely return when we are in Chicago again! :-)

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Pof3s Great hotel - great service
My husband and I were traveling by Amtrak. We stayed here between trains. We wanted a good night's sleep before a long train ride the next day! Wonderful hotel - not far from Amtrak station. Clean room, friendly helpful staff . Pot roast was excellent! The hotel was not tall - 5 or 6 floors.
We used public transportation to go to Michigan Avenue - there were 5 or 6 bus lines that stopped across the street.
We would gladly stay in this hotel the next time we are in Chicago.
