Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by PopTop2 Wonderful property for both Business and Pleasure
If you are looking for a a place to stay in the Palatine/Arlington Heights area, I highly recommend this hotel. This property is extremely clean and well maintained. They offer several perks which include: 1) a managers reception every Tue and Wed evening (5:30-6:30) which includes complementary beer, wine, and light snacks, 2) complementary access to the World Gym located on site with indoor access via the 2nd floor, 3) complementary shuttle service which to provides transportation to nearby businesses and restaurants, and 4) an upscale breakfast which includes a variety of hot and cold items. The entire staff is friendly and truly go out of their way to make your stay enjoyable.

Very good service from the staff! Gave me local menus, and got me some nice stuff for being a club member. Parking could be better.

While the property was well maintained the smell of chlorine permeated everything. The "trip" to the pool was long and
quite public< not a particularly comfortable experience. Wish I had known I'd be walking through the entire Health Club. I could
have worn more clothing and changed in the locker room.
It was nice to have hot water/ coffee service available 24hr.s
Complimentary newspaper and no knocking on the door by house keeping at 8:30/9 a.m. was also much appreciated. Parking access was good and I could view car from room.
I picked this hotel for the indoor pool. For at least 1/3rd less I could of had an in room microwave and mini fridge and health club, albeit no pool.

Had an awesome stay here. Room was very nice and clean. Loved the wrap around bathroom. Staff also very friendly! Keep up the good work!!
Only thing I was disappointed in was the pool closing at 9pm on a Saturday. :(

We had my daughters 10th birthday party here. From the front desk we were welcomed by a very pleasent person. I do not remember her name. She was extremley kind to a bunch of kids who were in the car to long. :) The rooms were fantastic, clean and comfortable. We had 4 rooms two sets of rooms attatched,and across the hall. Talk about and AWESOME WAY of keeping a close eye on the kids. We were all surprised by gifts from the hotel staff (thank you Alisha). Youmade the birthday girl feel like the QUENN OF THE WORLD!!!

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Gorasej Don't stay for the breakfast
The room was clean and quiet. I rested as well as one could expect in a hotel room. I stay at this chain for convenience and to be able to enjoy a simple hot breakfast before hitting the business day. Holiday Inn is beginning to let me down. Holiday Inns have these weird scrambled eggs that taste like the egg shells are still in the meal. The omelets taste like cardboard. I know the breakfast is included and its appreciated but someone in this chain needs to provide edible eggs or I'm taking my 100 hotel nights per year somewhere else.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 Top-Notch Place for the Right Price
This is one of the best places I have ever been. It is not a luxury hotel, but for the price, you get excellent amenities, excellent staff, very good breakfast, access to the full gym/pool/spa next door (I believe under certain room arrangements), excellent free wi-fi, and a happy hour a couple times a week. The staff are also all very courteous and welcoming. I get smiles and hellos at each breakfast by every staff member.
I have placed my visiting colleagues in this hotel several times already, and they agree that it is one of the best out there. I will continue to place all of our company's business at this hotel going forward.

Let me start by thanking the staff for helping make the days leading up to, the day of, and the days after my wedding a wonderful experience for both myself and my husband, and our guests who came in from all over the world (literally!), THANK YOU.
The bridal suite was lovely, and leaving us a bubbly after the reception party was a nice touch..... Our guests couldn't stop talking about how you made shuttle services available for stress free movement, a pool and a gym accessible too.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by BearDown46 Better than expected
I'm a reward member for Holiday Inn / IHG so I know what to expect from their brands. This hotel was better than your typical HI Express. The initial front desk meeting was nice as she offered the IHG Members-only offerings of refreshments and free room upgrade. The room was nice with comfortable beds (no mini fridge though). Upon first inspection of the room there was no remote control for the TV. Problem easily solved once I got the front desk initial check up call. Great HD reception on the adequately sized TV (I don't need a monster screen in my standard hotel room). What made this better than average was the free buffet that had all of the hot things hot and the attached World's Gym is a nice bonus with its full size pool, basketball court and workout equipment. I'll be choosing this location again when it is time to make the boys overnight trip. Thanks.

I have stayed here for years with my wrestling team. It is a nice and clean place close to several local high schools. This year however, there was no hot water either morning. Not sure why this year would be any different then previous years??

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by CKphoto Jacuzzi tub room was comfortable
Spent one night in the 2 room jacuzzi tub suite as sort of a celebration night. They had a small managers social that evening that included beer, wine and potato chips.
The room was quite comfortable, especially the bed. My only issue was the cleanliness of the tub. I had to let the water run for a while and use soap to clean it out. When I did there were chunks of hair that came out of the jets in the jacuzzi tub.
Breakfast the next morning was the standard Holiday Inn Express breakfast, which is quite good in my opinion. They have quite a few choices, which is nice. The attendant was slow to keep things full, but when asked did go and eventually refill the orange juice.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Winter5555 Comfortable bed and great breakfast area
We attended a wedding and stayed two nights at your hotel. We were very impressed with the overall appearance of the hotel. Staff was accomodating, loved the big breakfast area as a good place to socialize with our large group. Breakfast had a very nice, tasty selection and I also thought the beds were very comfortable. I would definitely use your facility again if needed to stay in that area.

The only problem that we had was the room was too hot for comfortable sleep even though it was on the lowest setting the first night of our stay. We turned off the heater and had a good night's sleep the second night.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by narima Great service. Very pleasant staff.......some issues....excellent service recovery.
Besides the wedding and generally busy W/E, staff was able to give us a quiet and satisfactory room. Unfortunately when I tried to take my bath, I could not get hot water, and once wet, I finished washing my hair with barely warm water, resulting in getting a bad cold. The staff responded quick and very politely to fix the problem. When the linen on one of the beds was discovered stained, the housekeeper was immediately there to rectify the problem, and when a non service dog went to my husband's legs in AM at the breakfast room , my husband is scared of dogs, the staff was very efficiently trained in service recovery, and satisfactorily resolved the situation. Ordinarily if a place has 2 strikes they are out for me. There are usually plenty competitors for me to give my business to, and I travel a lot. Because the staff was so efficient and polite, I would definitely give this hotel my business.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by TLITTLE Hotel needs to work better with World Gym
I have the option to choose hotels closer to my office while there on business. But I choose this one since they are connected with World Gym. HOWEVER, I've been there twice in the past 3 weeks and there were 2 days in whichthe gym did NOT open at 5am as advertised. One day, the person did not even get there until after 7am. No one on the hotel staff could assist, I understand. I was told that 'they (people at WG) do whatever they want". I travel to the area quite frequently, and if something isn't approved, i will no longer stay at this facility.
In addition, I requested a room with referidgerator and microwave. These rooms were sold out when I checked in. and none of the local TV channels (ABC, CBS, etc) were working: 'no signal'. This was a very disappointing stay.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Susan1042 Wedding & Reception venue
We used their main ballrooms as the venue for our wedding and reception. This hotel, paired with a catering company, made the entire event a huge success. Everything went smoothly, and it gave us peace of mind to know that the majority of our guests were staying at the hotel, so that no only could they enjoy the reception longer, but there was no worry of them driving home after a night of partying. I would highly recommend this place.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Tomd19 What a nice suprise
I got to the hotel after 7:00 pm and there was still food from the managers reception and it was a great treat to have a beer and something to eat after driving to the hotel.
The General Manager was serving the guests and Jim couldn't be nicer!
the new TV in the room had three HBO's - more than I have at home!
The next day i met my coworker for breakfast and it was great.
It was interesting to see an Asian group and the hotel had rice and special breakfast items for them as well.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by PittsburghPaul Clean and Comfortable
A co-worker and I stayed at this location for two nights during a business trip. Overall, I had an uneventful stay. I say this as a positive. Room was clean and was quite comfortable. Would've been nice to have a refrigerator, but it wasn't really a problem. And I did know about it before hand with their online description of the room.
- Nice desk with a comfortable chair
- Wireless internet had decent speed
- Bathroom was clean when I arrived
- My limited contact with the staff was always pleasant
- Breakfast had a lot of options, which was nice, What I ate was tasty, except for the scrambled eggs. But ultimately one of the best breakfasts I've seen at a hotel.
I enjoyed the stay and would return if my company business sends me back to the area. I recommend this location to all.

Our 3 day stay was comfortable and quiet. The breakfast was good and the service was excellent. Use of the gym was awesome. There were many shops and resturants nearby.
There were problems with the toilet, so they gave us a plunger. The hair dryer didn't work, so I was glad I brought my own. This hotel could use some updating, but overall it was okay.
