Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 An Oasis
Having always had good experience with Holiday Inn, we made a reservation at this hotel next to Midway airport in light of the horrible weather forecast lest we have trouble making our early morning flight. Getting a cab in below zero weather for the trip from our house near downtown Chicago was harrowing, and we were nearly frozen. By the time we arrived at the hotel it seemed like an oasis in an arctic desert. The receptionist was friendly and we were never so happy to be in a warn comfortable room.
Before dawn the shuttle took us over to Midway where we found that our flight was cancelled with no chance to get out for the next 3 days. We went home. Our holiday was spent at the Holiday Inn.

We were stranded at Midway and appreciated the kindness of the staff when we were miserable. They went out of their way to make us comfortable and it made our situation more tolerable. Thanks so much!

This hotel was a great solution for my wife and I having to catch a early morning flight out of Midway Airport as we live almost 2 hours west of the airport. We did a Stay/Park/Fly package and because we were gone two weeks this was a fairly good value for us. The front Desk Staff were absolutely pleasant and our shuttle ride to the airport was uneventful. My only negative comment is the heater/air conditioner in our room cycled itself on/off constantly and it made it a bit hard to sleep so we finally turned it off. The room was very nice and the bead was very comfortable for us.

Awesome! The staff here are attentive and human, they understand circumstances and really take it into consideration. During Winter Storm Hercules we were allowed a very late checkout since our flight was cancelled and they even got dog bones for our dog since her food was in our bags that were being held at the airport. I definitely recommend this hotel.

I stay at this location once or twice per year and while not the most convenient for this particular trip, I returned based on past experience and was not disappointed. Always reliable service and quality.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by ICWUCBob Room was great. The close proximity to Midway Airpost was ideal.
The hotel facility was top notch. Had an upgraded suite which was a welcome change from a simple room. The hotel was convenient to restaurants and Midway Airport which added to my stay in that I did not have to venture far for a meal or the trip to the airport for a rental car turn in. The front desk clerk was especially helpful in accommodating a request for assistance for obtaining a boarding pass for Southwest Airlines on Thursday evening 12/12/13. Absent her help I would have been at the mercy of an extended line at the airport and less than desirable seating on the return flight to Cleveland, Oh. The single negative comment that I would make was she forgot to record my wake up call requests. That said, the lack of a wake up call did not cause any travel delays or difficulties. The young lady at the front desk was very helpful and extremely courteous.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Shelley08 Very comfortable room, great location, good breakfast
I love staying at the Holiday Inn Express brand because the beds and pillows are so comfortable. This hotel location is very clean and warm. It's located literally right next to Midway and there are plenty of restaurant options within walking distance. The breakfast was a step up from the norm with eggs and pancakes as well as yogurt and fresh fruit. Will definitely stay here again when I am in town.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Lrey1 Bad memories
Only reason it was memorable was because the room ended up being $15 more expensive than what my receipt quoted me. Not only a state tax but also a community tax?! RIDICULOUS also made it more frustrating to have to hear airplanes every 15 minutes. Don't really want to pay extra for that. Also the people in front of me in line were offered peanuts or doritoes but I was not. I'm usually very pleased with holiday inns, however I definitely wouldn't recommend this one. Cost way too much for what you get.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by PayingForCollegeDad Pay for Parking?
I understand the need to pay for parking if I was going to leave my vehicle for an extended period. But I was staying in the hotel for one night and leaving the next day. Parking should be free for each night that you are checked into the hotel.
When I spoke with the front desk about it, I received "We charge everybody for parking." I was not going to argue with them because this is obviously either a franchisee or corporate decision.

My fiancee and I stayed here for two nights while moving from Maryland to Washington. Right off the bat the staff was excellent and the room was great. The hotel is in a great spot with quick and easy access to the downtown area, not to mention plenty of places in the surrounding area to eat. Definitely recommend for anyone looking to stay close and comfortable to Chicago.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by DrJim08 Excellent help with phone reservation
My plane was delayed several hours, so I made a phone reservation from a noisy airport in Arizona. The woman who made my reservation was most helpful despite the fact that I was having trouble hearing her because of background airport noise. She made the reservation and gave me the info so that I could be picked up at the airport when I landed about 12:30 AM. I spent a very restful night at the Holiday Inn Express, Chicago. Thank you very much for your assistance.

We arrived at check-in and realized that we had accidentally booked the wrong night. The staff behind the counter fixed the reservation with no-hassles. Not only that, but when I asked about parking since we would be flying out-of-town for a week, he re-booked out room again with a parking pass and a discounted room package. Above and beyond service and a comfortable room - what more could you ask for!

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.
