Of all the hotels I've stayed at. This one was in Chicago. I've stayed in other hotels, they were similar. But they were not this hotel.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Kathryn 60 Great Service
The staff were respectful and efficient. They were helpful in answering questions, and in fulfilling my requests. The interactions with them were cordial, but not to the extent that they were overly intimate. This included the waitresses in the bar/grill and the gentleman running the traveler's shop. My room was clean and tidy all days of my stay.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Bandgeek1977 Our stay...
The stay was fine and everyone was accommodating. There were just a few things. The overall look of the hotel from the outside is just fair. They need to spruce it up a little bit and maybe refurbish the lobby area, because it just wasn't the outstanding qualify you see in most Holiday Inns. The room was fine, but the mattresses seemed on the older side. We upgraded to hot breakfasts and it was worth it! You got to choose from either the buffet or order off the menu. The buffet was surprisingly decent and they had a waffle maker which the kids and I loved. Buuut, it did take a while to make them individually and when there was a line, we just didn't get them, because it would've taken too long. My husband ordered steak and eggs off the menu twice and I ordered eggs benedict twice and both times they were very good. Just as expected. We have two teenagers and received breakfast tickets for all 4 of us the first 3 days. On the 4th day, the concierge said that the kids weren't supposed to get tickets. After telling the waitstaff about this, they double checked and said that indeed, we DID get tickets for the kids as well, since we booked for 4 of us and they were over 11. It was resolved to our satisfaction. Overall, the stay was as expected and this location is pretty conveniently located. There were a lot of places to go near us for food, gas, etc. One of the bus stations is directly across the street I would recommend this hotel to anyone that's basically sleeping and swimming at the hotel and nothing else. It's pretty basic, but leaps and bounds above motels.
