Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by scotch4ever Great hotel for business travelers
I stay at this location almost every trip I have for business in the chicagoland area. There are no parking fees unlike the $45-50 in downtown. The hotel is located in a shopping center which has a Target Super Store, Staples, Chase Bank, Pizza Shop, Sub Shop, and Burrito Shop. If you are flying in no worries as they have an airport shuttle.
The hotel can be quite busy on the weekends between the small colleges basketball and volleyball teams that stay there or the various Church seminars but you still get a great night sleep.
If you drove and like cigars the best cigar shop in the entire state is only 10 min away, Casa De Montecristo, 1332 W 55th St, Countryside, IL 60525. They have aging rooms, private stock, VIP underground lounge via private elevator, and cigars you will see at no other shop in the world.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Destiny2013 Great Hotel :-)
This hotel was absolutely awesome :-) Considering the fact that it was me and my husband first time in Chicago, I had a fear of how the hotel would be. The Holiday Inn Express shocked me tremendously!! For example, I was expecting nasty food but I was surprised how well the breakfast food tasted. There was such a variety of food until even the pickets eater could find something to eat.
There was no noise---the only thing I experienced was total relaxation and me and my husband are definitely planning another trip so we can visit this dynamic hotel :-)

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by FrequentTravelers Newer property, good breakfast,
Stayed 5 nights - 2 adults.
Beds were comfortable. Check in and check out were a breeze. Everything worked. Room was quiet (rm 427).
Better breakfast than many motels: real eggs, pancake machine, good coffee with real half and half, as well as assortment of flavored creamers. Sausage, bacon, cereals, fruit....
Coffee, tea, hot chocolate available 24 hours.
The value was quite fair and what I expected in the price range.
Plenty of free parking....
- Would have been nice to be able to set the AC/heater to run continuous so we didn't hear it cycling ON and OFF all night.
Overall - would reccomend.

This was a very nice clean comfortable hotel, and great price. The only negative thing would be that it a located next to a busy road, but was good overall.

I travel over 150 nights annually and find this hotel one the best I have ever stayed in!
Staff is nice and professional, always. Proximity to OHare and Chicagoland make it a perfect choice for me when in town on business or enroute to Europe.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by CWisconsin Clean, comfortable and friendly!
Very clean and comfortable facility with very friendly and attentive staff. The breakast/dining area is very large, well equipped with comfortable seating and has a much larger array of items than most similar chains. My king room was large and I really love the fact that a small fridge and microwave are in the room. This hotel is walking distance to the Super Target (groceries) and a handful of fast food restaurants. Very easy access to the interstate. The fitness room was adequate - 2 treadmills, a bike and 2 elipticals. Water in the fitness room would have been nice. The only very minor downside for me was the comfort of the bed and especially the pillows. They were both too firm for me and I would have appreciated some softer pillows throw in to the 5-pillow mix on the bed. Also, the sound of water running in other rooms was very loud. It didn't bother me, but it is something to note if that kind of thing bothers you. .

The room was just as we've come to appreciate with HI Express Hotels ... immaculately clean, comfortable, affordable. Staff was superb, as was breakfast in the AM!
Thank You, Holiday Inn Express !

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Frankiesnacks Normally nice Holiday Inn Express with shuttle problem
Our stay was fine. All Expresses I've been to (many of them) have been clean and top notch for a night's stay for business. This one was fine all around until we went down to the lobby in the morning to catch a shuttle to the airport. We were told that it was "on demand" and the shuttle was out and about already and wouldn't be back for an hour. I've never heard of this before but it was real and there were no backup shuttles or any other solution for that matter. I had to catch a cab instead of the normal shuttle that I rely so much on. Again, the hotel and its accommodations were fine and the staff was as helpful as I could ask for. They just have an odd policy when it comes to their shuttle.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by kyleegirl01 Great property with wonderful sales staff for meeting space
I stayed on property to conduct an employee training and was blown away by the customer service. The staff went above and beyond to ensure that I had everything I needed.
All staff were very helpful and attentive. The breakfast selection was fantastic and there is a Jimmy John's in the same complex that delivers to the hotel.
I would definitely stay here again!

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Al619 Bed far too soft
While the hotel overall is OK and staff is just fine, the beds are awful. For a fairly new hotel I am disappointed. I stay in hotels 200+ nights a year. I was excited that a 'good' hotel came to this area. I have stayed here several times and been consistently disappointed in the bed.
Sorry, I will stay elsewhere next time.

We enjoyed our visit to Chicago. The room was comfortable and the bathroom was above my expectations. The room chair was narrow and stiff, so not worth sitting in. The towels were decent and the pool/hot tub helped to increase my relaxation.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by MommaB Thank you shuttle service!!
I stayed at the hotel when all rooms in downtown Chicago exceeded $350/ night. The shuttle service took us directly to the blue line, so we could buzz into town without paying expensive parking fees. The driver suggested we stop at Walgreens' drug store to purchase a rail & bus one day ticket for only $5.25!! Free hotel parking, free shuttle, and transportation anywhere in & around Chicago via rail or bus for only $5.25/day....priceless! Thanks for making a memorable vacation with my son affordable.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Wallyjar Un called for security demand
I was required to provide my drivers license for them to scan into thier security system. I spend 70 to 90 nights per year in HIE and have never been asked for this before.
I did not like it and in the future will not stay at any location requiring this invasion of my data.

I am a neat freak! And this hotel was right up my alley, My room and bathroom was neat and clean with nice upgrades including granite countops and flat screen tv. And the bed and pillows were ultra comfy. I felt like I was at home. I was running late so I was unable to try the complimentary breakfast, but my bet is that it was great!

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by j79p poor breakfast staff
Do not stay here if you are a frequent traveler. They greet you when you walk in with "welcome back" but never even try to lift their eyes from what they are doing.
The breakfast staff is very rude, they remove entire trays of food and then you must wait for it to be brought back out, This is the worst of probable 50 HI's I've stayed at.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by CAHS VERY NICE HOTEL
The quality of this Holiday inn Express hotel was as high as any other. The service was good, but we didn't really enjoy of waht the hotel offers you since we were more out. They have wifi, pool, good breakfast... The location is ok if you have car available, otherwise would so hard to move around Chicago. There are few restaurants, stores and even a target about 0.3 miles around, so you'll get everything you need.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 Very nice place
A bit pricey for an HI Express facility but not too bad upon consideration of location being not horribly far outside downtown Chicago. Interstate 290 is easily accessible however caution to heavy traffic on I-290 West.
The facility is very nice overall. Impressive outter appearance does not disappoint inside
