Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 Our Anniversary stay at the Holiday Inn Express Hotel and Suites
Since this was our 17th Anniversary trip to Chicago and our first time to visit Chicago our stay at this facility was absolutely enjoyable and relaxing for us both since we had just driven from Houston Texas. The staff and hotel accommodations more than met our expectations for cleanliness and provided an excellent relaxed atmosphere.
The location of the facility was just what we needed to acclimate ourselves to the change of environment and locale. There was just enough suburban familiarity to accommodate our extra necessities, that for some reason always appear when near a Wal-Mart facility.
The varied area restaurants were highly accessible and visible to the hotel were wonderful assets as well. The travel to downtown Chicago to enjoy the attractions was easily accommodated via a timely transit vehicle that arrived and deposited us at the front door of the hotel was a wonderful, invaluable convenience for a couple of very mature visiting Texans.
The only negative that we agreed upon was, the breakfast. After the third day of our five day stay the same breakfast menu had become a little too familiar to us. The biscuit and gravy portion of the meal definitely needs updating

I have stayed at this HIX several times now as part of my trips through MDW. The staff is always welcoming, polite and professional taking care of you quickly and competently. The hotel is always clean and looks great from the lobby to each room. I have stayed at dozens of HIXs across the country and this is the one of the top overall.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by SteveUChi Convenient, comfortable, clean
The hotel is located 5 minutes from Midway Airport, in a fenced-in campus of five major-brand hotels. The area is a bit run down but we felt safe in the fenced-in area. There are three restaurants on the property, including a very good Fridays. The hotel staff were very pleasant and accommodating. The rooms are clean and the furnishings are new. We were able to relax easily and felt safe on the property. The breakfast main courses were not tasty; on the other hand yogurt, fruit, muffins, and cereals were provided and therefore one can get an adequate breakfast. Overall the hotel is a good value considering how expensive other hotels are in the Chicago area. I will definitely stay there again.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Paulina35 Out of Order Room with positive result
We arrived after a long day of shopping in Chicago to find that our room was out of order due to water damage from rains. The front desk clerk showed us three other room options and we selected a room that had an upgrade of a whirlpool tub. We had a great stay and were not charged a different price than originally due, even with the upgraded room. Would recommend this hotel to friends staying in the Chicago area.

We were greeted by smiling faces and outstanding customer service at check-in. We were able to get into our room early and hit the Windy City relaxed knowing our stuff was in our room. The shuttle took us to the airport to catch the CTA into the city. Our overall experience was fantastic!

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Tee13 Ok Service
I am very irritated with this hotel. I made a reservation using my rewards points for this hotel and arrived at 3:00am. After waiting on the front desk clerk for 20 min to return to the desk from making her rounds I advised her of my reservation and she confirmed she had it. The hotel was descent for the short time we were there but my irritation grew from when I noticed they used my points and charged my bank card I had on file for the hotel stay. I spoke with the GM and she was able to identify the issue and advised she was sorry and would have it resolved. This is the second week and the $185.00 still have not been credited to my account. I was told I would receive points for the inconvenience and I still have not noticed the points. What was more irritating was when I spoke with the clerk that checked me in she told me I did not tell her I had a reservation I gave her my card. When those were the first words I told her and she told me that my name sounded familiar and she had my reservation. Really my past experience as a platinum member was when I arrive at a hotel and give my name they have the key and reservation already prepared.

My husband and I booked a whirlpool suite recently for our 20th wedding anniversary. The hotel was beautiful, the staff were amazing and the room was very clean. I would recommend this hotel to anyone.... if you like a bed that is hard as a rock! The cost was significantly more than originally quoted, which was extremely dissapointing when you plan a trip within a "budget". I strongly encourage future patrons to contact your exact location where you plan on staying for the room rate, city and state taxes... and which "hotel package" you are REALLY eligible for prior to making your final destination arrangements.

All my kids and grand-kids live in and around Chicago, so whether is birthdays, graduations, baby showers or wedding, I'm flying in and out of Midway airport a lot. My secret is to unwind at the Holiday Inn before flights home. Free shuttle to airport, someone else fixing a warm breakfast and making the bed for me, what could be better!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by navy21 GREAT!
Great place to stay when traveling into Midway! The hotel was well worth the money spent. The rooms were clean and well kept along with the entire hotel. The shuttle service was extremely helpful and easy to find from the airport along with it's pick up outside each of the Midway Center Hotels. Once at the airport the train into the city was easy to find and an easy and quick right into the downtown loop. I would recommend staying at this location when flying into Midway to stay out of the hustle and bustle of the downtown area. It couldn't have been better!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Bobbyo61 Excellent place to stay before an early morning flight
At the advice of a seasoned traveler, we were told it would be wise to stay overnight near Midway airport rather than making an early morning drive from Peoria. He recommended Holiday Inn Express. I am going to thank him for his wisdom when I next see him. Not only did it take the stress out of fighting traffic, the hotel offers a very reasonable shuttle service every twenty minutes from the front door. We will definitely repeat this decision for future trips out of Midway. Good hotel - good staff as well.

The hotel was perfectly comfortable and the breakfast was great. The staff went above and beyond as we forgot one of the kid's backpacks on way to airport and they were nice enough to just Fedex it to us rather than have us miss our flight. Thanks!

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Tanrolls Great staff and service but not worth the price
I stay at IHG brands on a regular basis. In fact, two days after my stay at this Holiday Inn Express, I checked into another Holiday Inn Express in Texas. I understand that I was paying for location in Chicago but the lack of amenities in the room were unacceptable. I have come to expect a fridge and maybe a microwave in all rooms at Holiday Inn Expresses. This room had neither. I located a microwave in the room with the ice machine and vending machine. The food was simply fair. This was not a value at all. Especially not compared to other properties across the country. Great staff.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Luke750 Good experience
My stay was good. I stayed one night and left my car for a week while on vacation. I flew out of Midway. It was very convenient in location. The shuttle was very easy and runs every 20-30 minutes. The hotel was clean and nice. The parking lot was fenced in and I had no problems with my car on return. They had a simple breakfast in the lobby, but I didn't have time to use it. The lady at the desk couldn't have been nicer and was very helpful. I would definitely stay there again if I fly out of Midway. My brother and his family have stayed there and recommended it to me also.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by SPEWally Why is the no coffee?
The room rate was off the charts compared to the same hotel and room at other locations where I travel. I understand that the location has a great deal to do with room rates which is fine but I did not think that the poor quality of the service would be the result of paying more! There was never any freash coffee after Breakfast. There were no choices for oatmeal in the morning. Most days I took the last two. It was not like it was late in the morning. In most cases i was one of the first one down in morning. I have never had this poor of service from another HIX in all there years. I will not stay there again, and will be leaving a suggestion with our travel Dept as others travel in the area that they too will want to look else where for accomodations. Thank you
