During a "Polar Vortex" my flight out of Champaign was cancelled, so I was able to rebook out of Chicago, so I choose to stay here and utilize the park and fly. When I tried to park my car, I discovered that the spots that were unoccupied were drifted over. When I went to the front desk to inquire about someone cleaning out the parking lot, I was handed a shovel. Granted the air temperature was -15 with windchill around -45, but I would have thought the property would have had a small tractor or something for the parking lot.
Once inside my room, I couldn't get warm, again notice the temperatures above. I finally got the thermostat up to 78 and had two blankets on and was finally warm. The next morning, I discovered ice on the inside of the windows and frost all over the window sill. I was only on the second floor and had a tree partially blocking my window, so I can only imagine what it was like on the upper floors.
I would suggest they look at upgrading the windows and at least purchase a small bobcat tractor for snow removal. It is Chicago after all.

My son & granddaughter stayed there in order to attend a concert at Allstate Arena. They live in downstate Illinois. They were pleasantly surprised to find it was a 5 min. walk to arena. They said it was a big room and a great hotel.

This hotel was one of the better ones I have stayed at. The staff was very nice and fast. The breakfast was very good and warm which it is not like that at every hotel. Would definitely recommend everyone to stay at this particular holiday Inn to stay at.

We found the hotel clean, comfortable and the staff was great. We checked out on Thursday and found out that we could not leave because our plane flight was canceled.
We were able to get right back into another room. The shuttle to and from the airport was most helpful, since we had to use it so often! The pool was clean and I was able to use it three times since we had the extended stay.
All the staff, from the front desk, though the rest of the staff were courteous and efficient.

I was inspired to stay here due to proximity of the All State Arena, and so happy that I did. My accommodations were comfortable and the staff was so pleasant. Would like to send a special "thank you" to Britanny, as she was so sweet and helpful when I needed help with directions to the Woodfield Mall. The added bonus of a delicious warm breakfast, made this stay an exceptional value for me. I highly recommend staying here, and in the future would make this location a repeat visit. Well done, and thank you!

We have stayed at this property twice. Really enjoyed the workout area and the swimming area they were excellent. The breakfast is nice as with no complaints and the parking is free. The only setback was we were there a few days before Christmas and Chicago O'Hare traffic was horrible and there is a concert hall just behind the hotel which caused a serious traffic jam it took us nearly an hour to get into the hotel off the exit.

Everything about this property is spot on excellent! My wife and I had an awful drive into Chicago , with bad weather and car problems. Upon check in the ladies at the front desk not only gave us names of reliable towing and repair shops locally, but called the 30 minute shuttle back to take me to rent a car. The front desk also arranged for the morning crew to give the towing company my keys, and to top it off they gave us a suite upgrade to make us feel better. Our suite was hot and we couldn't cool it off, and after one call maintenance was there in 2 minutes and took care of the problem. Comfortable beds, better than average breakfast, including coffee, muffins, fresh fruit and yogurt for folks that had to depart prior to the 6:00 hot breakfast - all the service details were met and our expectations exceeded, at at a fair price. I booked two more trips to this hotel not only for the superb service and attention, but the shuttle can get you to O'Hare departures in less than 5 minutes. Not only is the hotel close to the airport, but we could drive to downtown Chicago in a short time, and since parking is included, as opposed to the downtown location, this is an all round perfect deal. Can anyone guess we had a good time?

Just as good as any Holiday Inns I have stayed--clean rooms,nice staff,good service,good facilities.
I will choose to stay here next time I go to Chicago.
Anyway,since it's close to the highway,it's a little bit noisy even the windows are closed.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by camaus Good service, lots of rooms
my stay was only short but well done on this hotel providing the service it does in such a busy space near the airport.
the only thing i didn't like about the hotel was there was no exhaust fan in the bathroom, not good for steamy showers, or post-airline food toilet experiences.

Clean facility and room, no serious complaints. Location to O'hare means lots of traffic. Wallpaper peeling off the bathroom walls and joints opening up in the corners of the bathroom scream for a little attention.

We were guests of wedding celebration. We really liked this property. Had a great time during our stay. Wedding reception in penthouse area was beautiful. It is centrally located by O'Hare, Casino and shopping mall. Room was clean and comfortable. Staff was very helpful and friendly. They have pool, workout area and breakfast. It was a good bang for my bucks. Thanks!

I have NOT been to a better Hotel whereas management not only made sure that any and every request was met; then always followed up to see if there was anything else that would make my stay as comfortable and pleasant as possible.

The floors did not seem level in several parts of the building. Example: Fitness Room, Room 224, Hallway second floor near room 2224.
Appears that the property was centrall a/c several years ago and then converted to PTACS in the rooms. There is too much energy wastage in Room 224. You can feel cold air draft coming from surroundin PTAC and the window seals. This made the PTAC stay on all the time.

Check in to this hotel and was greeted with a smile. Got to spin the wheel and received a high five...kind of funny. Provided me with a great upgrade and had a nice time. Room was a bit dated but overall clean and comfortable. The only thing I wish this hotel had was a in house restaurant or bar. The restaurant next door provided the room service and the food was good and hot when delivered. There shuttle in the morning was on time. The breakfast was not bad either. I'll be back next time I have to fly out. Thank you to the staff for the job well done.

Had a lovely experience here with beautiful surroundings at a great price and as an extra bonus our room was upgraded to a suite which was luxurious! Would not hesitate to stay here again and next time I will bring my bathing suit to enjoy the whirlpool and pool.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by northernneck Overall very good...
Only two glitches
I was promised a king, but got two queens...no big deal
Far more serious is that access to the internet was impossible and after spending nearly an hour trying to gain access I gave up.
Someone came to the room to try to help but was puzzled by the problem too. Anyhow, my MiFi will never be left home again.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Businesstraveler987 Bad service
My room did not have towels. I tried to call down to the front desk from my room but the line multiple times but it was always busy. When I called from my cell phone at 11:30 pm, they answered and told me they would send up towels. A half hour later, I called the front desk (again from my cell phone) and they said they would send the towels right up. 20 minutes later at 12:20 am, I finally got towels. Also, in the morning at breakfast, all the skim milk in the refrigerator was out of date. On the bright side, this hotel has a nice gym.

Wife and I stayed at Holiday Inn Express and what a wonderful
stay we had. We were going to see Elton John at the All State Arena and decided to stay here. It was hassle free from check in to check out staff was so nice and the free breakfast was not to miss. I found my Hotel for any future concerts we attend. Thank you for a job well done. Dave T

I am only going to point out the negatives.
There are no handicapped parking spots close to the entrance.There is only ONE handicapped spot and it has a 15 minute time limit.
Your television service is non existant!!THere is ONE local channel available.You shouldnt even have a TV in your rooms
I was UPGRADED to a mini suite and there was no snack or beveridge bar,
You are loosing a LOT of money !!
My sliding glass closet door was out of the track.Don't your people inspect a room during cleaning??

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Hattari Is Lucky Spin for real?
Upon my check in at this hotel on Oct 24, 2013, the Reception invited me, as a Rewards Club member to take part in the Lucky Spin. I did and won a Bonus Point of 5,000.
The front desk told me that the points shall be transferred to my account 'overnight'. I checked my account a week later and it wasn't there. I followed up with a phone call and the front desk advised "it would take 5 weeks to transfer the points"....
Well, it is now more than 5 weeks since my stay and the hotel unfortunately fails to keep up its word. Truly disappointing.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by RM2012 Comfortable bed and great service
The service at the hotel was great. We arrived too early and planned on leaving our bags at the desk, however they already had rooms available and we were able to check in. If you are an IHG rewards member they have a prize wheel you can spin, with prizes like free points or a free pizza.
The hotel was very clean. The rooms felt a little older, but all of the public areas that we used (pool, workout room, breakfast area) looked more updated.
The airport shuttle runs every 30 minutes. All the other hotel shuttles sit outside for a few minutes at the airport, this one never waited more than 30 seconds, so if you aren't standing outside freezing, bags in hand, waving them down they won't wait. We stood right inside the glass doors, watching him pull up, but as we walked out the driver had already left.
Overall our stay was great. we used the shuttle all weekend once we figured out their habits to get to the blue line and downtown.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by WMS1 Nice hotel
I chose this hotel because of the close proximity to the Allstate Arena, and the fact that it had free parking was a definite bonus. I was only here for one night, and it was a fine hotel for what I needed it for. I did use the fitness center, and have to say the treadmills were not the best....one of them was very loud and the other had some broken buttons and just randomly turned off as I was jogging on it. My room was comfortable enough, but I turned on the lamp on the desk and then was unable to turn it off unless I unplugged the entire thing which overall is a small issue. Also, while taking a shower the tub did not drain very well so I ended up standing in an inch or two of water by the time I was finished. The hotel lobby is very nice, and they have a nice market place with some good items. Also, the complimentary breakfast was a very nice thing. Overall, a nice hotel for the money.

I got upgraded to a penthouse room which was nice however the shower had no water pressure and cut out twice no hot water at all upstairs in room. this is what I remember of the entire stay though which is a shame as the staff was friendly and as I said the upgrade was nice.

An average HIE. The hotel is dated, and the bathroom was cramped with a very low counter. Front desk staff seemed distracted and weren't especially welcoming. The location for O'Hare and rental car returns is excellent.
