Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by WA4444 Best Holiday Inn Anywhere
The staff really made this hotel. They didn't just tell you where something was, they took you there. You didn't like something, they immediately changed or fixed it. They were so polite and accommodating, which is REALLY nice when you are away from home. AMAZING service! Thank you!

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Skip6605 Some nice but strange rooms
I had a room on the first floor at the far west side of the building.
The rooms on that side of the building have a big picture window facing a hallway. So for any privacy you must keep the drapes drawn.I think that's true of many rooms at this hotel. If that bothers you then you should ask, in advance, for a room with a window opeing to the outside of the hotel. However the rooms were nice and the service was very good. This is an older hotel with updates that are ok but not spectaclar. It gets the job done.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Dowdy4 Stay at HI in Skokie
The staff was very friendly and accomodating. The hotel seemed nice but a few things could have been better. The desk chair in my room was not comfortable at all. I called and got a replacement but that was not much better. I think they just need to update them all. They also had some computer problems in the restaurant. I was not able to charge my bill to the room.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by dsmtraveller Good two nights stay
The hotel consists of two parts: towers (new building) and existing building. While we booked a standard room in the existing building, we requested an upgrade to the towers portion of the hotel, which was granted. The room was just fine - typical for Holiday Inn one. Staff was very attentive and went out of their way to make sure that everything went well. We used restaurant and the pool, which were just fine.

I could only find one problem,well more of an inconvience.I like to pay cash for my rooms at check in, and leave my credit card on file for incidentals. I don't understand why this is a problem here since I do it at many other HIG properties and I stay at Holiday Inns quite offen.This simple change would uncomplicate my stays .I probably, No "I will" be staying here again and I will recommend this hotel.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Colorguy OK But No Wow Value
As a Platinum Member I have a good perspective of good to great hotels in this Brand. This of OK and better than a lot of competitors but not what I expect. It's well worn, but clean. The restaurant food is really sub par but I've had worse. The attention to deal is OK but not great. So, I would stay here again, but don't burn me twice.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by tol13 Room reserved not available
We reserved an accessible king and we were advised when we arrived it was not available. The front desk staff wanted my wife and self to take a double bed accessible room but I'm but too tall for that bed. The 3 front desk staff walked away trying to figure out a solution. We ended up in executive king... NOT as impressive as it sounds! That room was an interior room, like a cave with no natural sunlight. A permanently bolted door to the inside patio, the bathroom was void of an exhaust fan, vent levers were filthy. Bed pillows were the size of a couch throw pillow.
We stayed here several times before with no issues.
Staff gave $20.00 breakfast coupon, 2 bottles of water and priority parking. Allowed us to check in 1 1/2 hours early. We had driven a long way. We would have rather had the room we reserved.

by Bojana This hotel is dirty! Make sure to check your sheets!
I kept finding pub*ic hairs hairs on my bed sheets. The staff moved us to 3 different rooms promising a clean bed and each time we found dirty linen. Housekeeping went through 5 different sets of sheets until they could find one set with no hairs. One set of sheets even had a footprint on it! (picture attached) Clearly this hotel is not washing their linen well, if at all.
One of the managers made the remark "Well if you are going to look for hairs...[You are going to find them]." That is completely unacceptable response! Your sheets should not have pub*ic hairs on them! Another manager admitted they did not clean the sheets after one of their guests left (which is one of the rooms that we were sent to).
Don't stay at this hotel, and if you do, make sure to take a good look at your linen! You will probably discover what we did.
PS - This hotel promises to be smoke-free. One of the rooms they sent us to, 3018, smelled strongly of smoke. Clearly this hotel is not up to par.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by lauhal This hotel fit the bill
I was a little nervous getting a room on the first floor near the bar & front desk. I though the noise would be too much. However, it was peaceful and quiet. I went to Bar Louie and had a $1 bunger, too!
My stay was excellent!

I stay at a lot of Holiday Inns's. From check-in to check-out the staff at this location raises the bar for the others.
This location goes out of their way to make you feel welcome.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by rw50 Employee response
we left a small cooler in one room and a pair of shoes in another. My wife tried calling about the items and was shuffeled around to different people. After sitting on hold for 15 min we stopped back at the hotel where we spent another 45 mins a staff member produced the shoes but said they could not find the cooler. my wife said she left the cooler in the refrigerator yet they said it was not there. My wife called on the following wed and they said they had not found it. She replied that someone must have stolen it then. The next day they called my wife to say they had a big meeting with the cleaning staff and shortly after the cooler was found in a room 3 rooms down from ours. Kind of makes me wonder? As a priority club member i got to spin the wheel to see what my gift would be. I spun and won a selection from the snack basket. The snack basket was never shown to me to make a selection.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by ERogers73 Exceptional Staff
In mid January my family experiance the tragic loss of my nephew. During this hardship the staff went above and beyond all expectations. Elizabeth and Kayle at the front desk greated us with a smile each morning or afternoon and were at the ready if we needed any assistance. Chris the daytime manager at Bar Louie was an angle, she helped us cordinate the terrace space and the buffett for the luncheon after the memorial service and even shared some tears. Chris and Yoli greated us each morning for breakfast with a heartfelt smile and asked how we were doing, not because they were expected too, but because I believe they honestly cared. Daniel the night manager and Nicole the bar tender at Bar Louie were also bright spots during this difficult time, they both greated our family with a smile and were quick to take our orders and pour drinks. It was their service and kind words that made us comfortable in our time of grief and allowed us to socializes with family, tell stories, and mourn. I have stayed at several hotel changes across the country and this staff tops 99% of them, without question. My deepest thanks. The General Manager should be proud of the staff that he has in place and I sincerly hope to see you all again in the near future.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by SciFiCowboy Can't go wrong with this Holiday Inn
I make it to Chicago several times a year and when possible, the Holiday Inn Skokie is my first choice. The staff are always friendly and accomodating. The rooms I have stayed in (main part) have generally been quiet, other than a guest who might talk loud, but is rare. Beds are comfortable, I love the indoor heated pool and jacuzzi, it is very relaxing after a long drive.
This last stay I was offered a $10 voucher for Bar Louie, I stopped in for dinner one night, sat for 10 minutes without being acknowledged, left to a fast food across the street. The morning of check out, it was several minutes before being waited on, food was minimal at best, okay priced. Still would have preferred the diner next door, but thought I'd give it a try. I think the lack of a Hostess to seat you lends to being overlooked and large groups in the morning overwhelm the waitstaff in the mornings.
The bar/resturaunt aside, this is my favorite hotel, good parking, awesome staff, courteous housecleaning, and very well kept clean.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Menorahsam Overall experience
In general the hotel was about average. I know that they were booked to capacity on Friday & Saturday, but some of my concerns should not of been effected.
Saturday, had to call to get room straighten up. Maid left no coffee or cold cups. Sunday, room wasn't made up until 4:00PM. Unable to swim because Atrium tempeture was between 55 and 60 degrees. This after requesting it be looked into starting at noon. Finally got some heat after 5:00PM.
Mattress was soft and out dated. This was complaint of must of our party. We had booked about 10 rooms for three night.
