Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Monsy Excellent Stay!
Loved staying here! The service was great, food was amazing and the staff were very helpful. Danielle & Maria were top notch and offered a few bathroom items we had forgotten. Gave us print out directions to certain downtown locations. Very helpful and sweet ladies!
My only two complaints are that the bedding kept coming lose while laying there and sleeping. Also a gate to the road would be nice for guests who need to walk across the road for the El train, rather than going all the way around.
I would stay here again in a heartbeat the next time I come to Chicago!!!

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by LizM2014 Somewhat disappointed
My room was very nice and the bed was comfortble. However, the TV didn't work as the outlet appeared to be broken. I was also frustrated about not being able to have a late check out, especially when the hotel wasn't even 75% full (based on the staff's own comments#. I was taking a test that day and it would have been much easier to not have had to worry about making sure I had everything together while worrying about the test. My room service menu also wasn't picked up overnight so I called at 6:45am to tell them #I had ordered food for 7am). Luckily, they were able to get my food to me by 7, so that was much appreciated.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Voodude Hotel is great! The attached Bar Louie not so much.
Stopped in Chicago for a few days for work and picked out this hotel because the other ones were a little over budget for this weekend. I've stayed at many different IHG hotels around this area and this was by far my favorite. They even have a special check in line for IHG members, which was nice. This hotel was even within walking distance to the Blue CTA Line which was great.
The only negative part of this stay was the TERRIBLE service I got got in the attached Bar Louie. It literally took over 30 minutes from anyone to take my order, and when I finally got my food an hour later it was cold and the portion was very small.
I know this wasn't the hotel's fault so I still rated high. Would defiantly recommend staying here, I would just invest in the time to eat off-site.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Schotzie Great Hotel and Excellent Service
I have been to this hotel a number of times over the last year, as it is close to my company's Chicago office. The staff has always been friendly and welcoming, and the rooms have been clean and comfortable. The connecting restaurant, Bar Louie, is a plus for a quick (and delicious) dinner or drinks. I highly recommend this hotel!

Brian was working at check in and was extremely kind and helpful. He was understanding of our special need for an allergy free room and he was also patient in explaining the best route for taking the train and bus to Wrigley Field. After a long day of driving, he helped us find rest and calm. Thank you, Brian.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Uncleroy Loud noise in vent in bathroom
We arrived late and got to our room 1101 after 12 at night. There was a loud noise coming from the vent in the bathroom. We thought if we closed the door we could reduce the noise but it did not work. The bed was very soft and made for a very sleepless night. When I got up at about 6 I went and had them move me to another room. They moved me to room 1103 which had a much better bed but you could still here the noise if you tried to sleep. My wife and I stayed 5 nights and we finally got use to the noise. We ran into the manger on the elevator and he ask me how was our stay and I told him about the noise, 10 minutes later the manager and a maintenance man went to the room. The noise was reduced but you could still here it from our room. The noise never stopped. I thought that I should have been compensated for my troubles but nothing happened. I still think that the general manager should have done something for us

The staff were ALL very friendly and helpful. The rooms while not new were very comfortable. The beds were better than many other places I have stayed. The food was great as well!
I loved the free wifi and parking.... I would definitely stay here again and recommend it to others.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by TiredTravelerinATL Late arrival into Ohare saved by Holiday Inn
We arrived at 1:00 am at Ohare due to airline issues. Holiday inn 24 hour shuttle picked us up after we tracked down our luggage. Front desk gave us a late check out so we could relax a bit before the next leg of our travels. Breakfast buffet on Sunday morning was very good. Friendly staff all around from the driver and front desk to wait staff. I would stay here again if I am in Chicago

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Gabriela55 Good service for an average but good value for money hotel
Although the hotel is a bit old and out of maintenance, the staff was really friendly and my overall experience was good.
The price was really good, so good value for money

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by jeffreier Location is great
Stayed at the hotel when the Hawks won the Stanley cup. Hotel is packed with guests with airline voucher b/c severe weather in Midwest. Through I wasn't able to use the priority club check-in, the front desk is very friendly and knowledgeable. The hotel is in walking distance to blue line and complimentary shuttle to airport is very good. Complimentary snack and breakfast is a plus. However, besides the pathetic amenities, the hotel is so close to flight route that it is a plane flying over every 5 mins. Kindly of annoying since I have an exam the next morning. But I assume that Marriott at the other side of road won't be much better.

I always like staying at the Holiday Inn and have stayed in the last year in Chicago, Scottsdale and Toronto. It is always reliable, clean, and spacious. The Holiday Inn O'Hare had a very pretty courtyard with beautiful flowering trees, a nice relaxing environment.
One very minor point-my hotel voucher for the O'Hare location did not state the address, and when I arrived at the O.Hare airport shuttle stop, discovered there were multiple shuttle buses to different Holiday Inns ( and that there are 200 Holiday inns in the greater Chicago region !) Having the address on the voucher printout would be great

My daughter was taking the Medical exam. The hotel was awesome. You walk through a tube to get to the testing site and through a different tube to get to the blue subway. Everyone was helpful, nice, and supportive. it is a great place to stay.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by SethK Nice hotel, though it felt a little dated
The room was very nice, but many of the common areas were dingy or dated in terms of decor, flooring, etc.
We were there for a wedding, and while the wedding rate was fantastic, the standard rate was very high for the quality of the room and the facilities. I could have stayed at a hotel within the loop for a lower standard rate.
The staff was very friendly and the pool was nice. The proximity to O'Hare wasn't a noise issue and we could barely hear the planes approaching and departing from our room.
I would add that the bathroom fan was ridiculously efficient! No fog on the glass after a shower and the white noise it created was enough to block out hallway sounds without being disturbing.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by ChrisP1957 Sports Bar - not a hotel dining room
Stayed here many times.
Good points: close to the airport and about 200 yards from a Blue Line station. Generally a good standard of accommodation, service, etc. In general. I would recommend this hotel.
However, in the last couple of years, the bar and dining-room has been completely revamped into a popular, and very noisy young persons sports bar. Good to have a bit of life in a Holiday Inn.
The problem is that there is now no area where hotel guests can go for a quiet evening meal. I was there on Stanley Cup night and could not actually get into the dining room on the first night I stayed. Now, that's obviously an extreme, but on any night, it is not an area that is welcoming to guests just wanting an evening meal after they have flown in, or ahead of flying out the next morning.
It is certainly not an area to take young children into.
If, on the other hand, you are into noisy sports bars with a good selection of beers, this is the place for you.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by SteveD74 Worst Experience at a Holiday Inn
I booked an Executive room, and when I checked in late, was given a handicap accessible room on the second floor. As I am 6'3", the shower head was at my shoulders, the bathtub drain did not work, and my room was directly above the hotel bar and I could hear the music. The rooms were run down and it looks like updates were last done in the eighties. I went down to complain the next morning, and they said they would move me while I was gone. They moved me to a standard king where that bathtub drain did not work either. Overall, not a good experience.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Jonathan48 Super close to Blue Line
The hotel staff was very friendly, and the hotel itself was very close (walking distance) to the Blue Line train into the city. I also enjoyed having the beer selection of Bar Louie in the lobby- a welcome change from the typical generic beer that most hotels have.
That being said, my room's shower had water below the floor- you could hear sloshing during while walking on it. This, and a problem with the toilet, was brought up with the staff and it was not taken care of during my stay.
However, that was the only problem with the hotel. The next time I am in the Chicago area I will probably stay here.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Mo77 Great staff... worst bed ever
I am a priority club member (Gold) and i always book with holiday inn.
this time my experience was not the best. because of the bed -which I never slept on anything like before- mattress was really old and uncomfortable by all means.
room carpet was so dirty.. I had to wear shoes all the time.
steam carpet cleaning is badly needed.
staff is the only good thing...
Holiday inn can do better than this.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by manateefla Met Expectations
Our stay was very pleasant. A problem with the pay TV was quickly remedied and we were credited for the charge when the problem was not with the hotel but the TV service. The restaurant/bar/hotel staff were very friendly and helpful. Room was clean and comfortable. One caution, the hotel is not as close to the CTA station as we were told. The Shuttle will take you there but logistics don't allow them to pick you up for transport to the hotel. Overall, I would stay there again under the same circumstances.

enjoyed the stay. shuttle service was good, especially when I was departing - driver took a 'short cut' to avoid a major tie-up on 90. Bar Louie is very nice - relaxing and I was there when the Blackhawks were clobbering the Kings - the place was rocking!!

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Kitty27 Food, lounge atmosphere and table staff best feature by far
Bathroom sink leaked, shower slow to drain, water temp not consistent,floor housekeeper very short when asked for two towels, pillows absolutely pathetic balls of lumps...worst pillows EVER!!! Sheets so shrunken kept popping off matress every time we turned. Front desk clerk on am departure totally put out with request for receipt. The walk for upper parking area thru pool area beyond creepy and not well lit or directed.
3:00 Saturday lunch in the bistro was delicious and service was fantastic!!!:
We count on the Holiday Inn name and were definitely let down.
