Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by vanhanj Elevator noise
I have stayed at this hotel often and often on the top floor. This trip I was close to, not next to, the elevators. All night I kept hearing the elevator noise. If you are on the top floor, you want a low number or high numbered room!
Breakfast is average and expensive, not a good value.
It is interesting they are a non-smoking hotel with the smokers stationed at the door welcoming you like a door man, except they do not open the door, they exhale smoke! Bad first impression.
The staff is excellent, rooms clean, beds comfortable.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Tim2014 Stay here a lot - But I'm a sound sleeper
I stay here a lot over the past 8 years. No matter what room I am in or on what floor, the elevator hums and you hear it no matter where you're at. It doesn't bother me as I can sleep anywhere. But, if you have trouble sleeping with noise, you might want to consider another location.
Since I have stayed here, they have remodeled the rooms and changed the restaurant. Also there are several places to eat within walking distance.
The rooms have always been clean and the staff friendly.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Tooz Very good hotel in Chicago area.
I found the location, conditions and staff of this hotel very satisfying. Compared with other Holiday Inns in the area this one is my favorite.
Very friendly and engaging staff.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by km0225 I won't return to this property as long as the elevator noise continues
I have stayed here several times. Until my last stay of late December 2013, I was satisfied with this property but it is no longer. I was used to stay here because of my early morning schedule nearby. I need a good sleep and that was the primary reason for choosing this property occasionally. As a recent reviewer mentions, however, an elevator's noise is recently too serious. I will provide the hotel management team my recording if a recording is needed. I recommend them to hear the noise from their elevators. Anyway, my recent stay was terrible. Wrong (?) fire alarm during a shower and climbing down by stairs from the seventh to the ground was relatively understandable in comparison to other problems. I am not sure if I may return to this property. I wish to see some improved reviews for this property in a close future.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by pghsteve EXPECTED A HOLIDAY INN
Stayed a this hotel last year and stay was okay, there were a few problems which i was told would be corrected. Manager actually contacted me to discuss my review last year. Well, NOTHING has changed: Breakfast buffet is a POOR value and is not well maintained by staff. Snack and Sundry shop was an issue last year and still is, open sporatically,(can not count on them being open when you are in need) shop employee did not know how to use register and tried to over charge me both times i visited.
Staff throughout hotel are the best part of hotel experience.
When checking in , was recognized as a Platinum IHG member and given a placard for car. Only problem: was never told there was a special section for parking for IHG preferred members.
Parking lot on arrival, very icy and very difficult getting luggage to hotel door without slipping and having to actually carry instead of wheeling luggage.
Significant Problem with sleeping room. In 2 different rooms i was given on 7th floor ( and i was told by a friend on 6th floor this was a problem as well) , the ELEVATORS caused a moaning sound as they went up and down and could be heard in rooms even 6 rooms down the hall. So annoying i actually woke up 1st night having a dream with the moaning/vibration sound . Front desk told me management was aware fo the problem , but they still placed me and others in these "noisy /grinding sound rooms.
Do not pay extra for King Executive rooms they are small and the only advantage is a refrigerator. Clothes closet does not not even have a door /slider .
Overall, unsatisfactory stay and in my opinion , as much as I travel and stay in a variety of hotels/motels, this one should be downgraded to a lesser "label". Not Worthy of the Holiday Inn name

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Kglewton Great location. Friendly staff
This is a great location if you need to be in the western suburbs of Chicago. It's just off I-88 and right at Oakbrook Mall. Great shopping. Great restaurants. There is a Bar Louie in the lobby. No free breakfast room at this location. Breakfast is available at Bar Louie and is over priced. First place I have ever seen designated parking for IHG Club members. They are not the most convenient parking spaces but I suppose the restaurant patrons get those. The room was clean and comfortable with all the typical amenities for this IHG brand. The toilet in our room ran all night. I tried to fix it but no luck. Was not going to call maintenance that late so just closed the bathroom door. I know stuff happens so it was not a big deal. Hopefully they got it fixed for the next people since we told them when we checked out. If we're in the area, we'd stay here again.

The couple in the room next to ours were arguing loudly non stop from 10 PM to 3 AM. The front desk was notified a number of times, but nothing was done. My wife and I left the next day frustrated and exhausted. So much for a relaxing getaway.

Upon check in I ask the front people about shuttle service, they said this property does not offer service and offered to set up a taxi for the next day. I was going 1.5 miles from property to my training, I had no problem taking the cab. When I got to my training class I met some other people in my class that where staying at same Holiday Inn location and they got shuttle service. Interesting! Also upon check in I received one breakfast voucher for any one of the four days that I was staying here. I also talk to the people in my training class and they said that they got a voucher for everyday. Someone needs to be trained again on what you all do offer and what you don't. I am a Rewards Club Member and none of them were.

I call this review deja vu because it was at this hotel 36 years ago, my wife and I had our wedding reception.
I stayed at this hotel recently while in town for business. My experience with this hotel was great 36 years ago, and was as good, if not better, this time around.
Its a great place to stay.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Cindy129 Not what was expected
Having recently moved away from Chicago we booked this location for a fun weekend in the Chicagoland area. The location is great if you want to stay in the suburbs. We decided to pay extra for the executive rooms because the description stated: "The spacious desk and the free high speed wi fi access create an excellent workspace. And the beautiful leather chair adds style and comfort to this chic executive room. You can get a restful nights sleep on a plush pillowtop bed before preparing for the day in front of the lighted mirror."
This was inaccurate. The room was very small by even Holiday Inn Express standards. It was old and there was noticable dirt. There was no spacious desk, just a small table with two wood chairs. There was no beautiful leather chair nor a lighted mirror. Also, we could not get the wi fi to work properly and there were no in room movies to rent. The only positive thing about this description is that the beds were comfortable. Another added disappointment is we purchased the breakfast when we purchased the room because the reviews said it could be used for room service and upon check-in the front desk representative said we could do that as well. The restaurant would not honor it. We had to either go down to the buffet or get take out.
There was a young man that worked the front desk in the evenings who acted like he didn't want to be there and would walk away from guests as they approached. Otherwise, for the most part, the staff was average and pleasant.
On the upside, they did provide priority parking for IHG Rewards Club Members. I wouldn't rate this stay exceptional but since we were not in the hotel much, it was ok. I have had better experiences at other IHG properties that were newer.

From the time I walked in the staff were great! They even have me the chance to win 1,000 bonus points! I also received a free upgrade to my room and even breakfast vouchers! This place is em very comfortable and you can relax with no worries. There is also the infamous "Bar Louie" right downstairs for nightlife enjoyment. I will definitely make this my new favorite of the Holiday Inn I've visited this far!

I have stayed at this location a number of times. It is always very comfortable. The bed was great. I was automatically upgraded to a 2 room suite. I enjoyed the extra space.
Free breakfast was ordered off the menu. They also have a good buffet.
I would highly recommend this for someone needing a place in the west suburbs of Chicago. It is only minutes from Oak Brook Mall.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by MarilynJ6354 Older but nice...except the pool
This hotel is in a great location within walking distance of many restaurants and stores. It is older and the pillows in the room are horrible, tiny squares, just as they are in any Holiday Inn, but it was clean. The elevators are VERY slow and stinky and need to be refurbished due to the odor, scratches, etc. The biggest disappointment was the indoor pool. It was VERY cold and they got rid of the hot tub so our family night was pretty much ruined. The staff is very nice at the front desk and bar but the restaurant people at breakfast never even gave us utensils. No one came by to take our buffet coupon and there was no cashier so we just left the coupons on the register. We had to take them from other tables. The breakfast was mediocre so I'm glad we didn't pay for it. Houskeeping tried to enter our room, even though we had the do not disturb sign, because her list showed our room as vacant (she showed it to me as she apologized.) If you want a nice pool, don't stay here. If you don't care about the pool, go for it!

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Chicago23 Cleanliness, Staff and Service
This was my second stay at this particular HI. My first experience was average. This one left a little to be desired. I stay exclusively at HI's and I was dissappointed at Oakbrook Terrace. The Staff was OK, but the room service did not clean the room very well. The coffiee was not replenished, nor was the pot even cleaned. Scraps of paper were left on the floor which leads to believe the floor was not vacumed.
