Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Marigold444 Wonderful staff and experience
We had a party of 8, driving home after a cruise out of New Orleans back to Iowa and Minnesota. We arrived there about midnight and had a wonderful staff member great us and get us settled into our very nice rooms quickly and without hassle. We slept through breakfast so can't comment on the food. Would recommend without hesitation and if in the area would stay there again, in the same room as it had everything we look for in a hotel.

We were put in 3rd floor that under renovation. It has paint smell and seems like we are the only the guest put on 3rd floor that night.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by tsmom1219 Disappointing visit
We stay at this particular property at least once a year when we visit family in the area. Usually, everything is excellent. This visit...wasn't.
We stayed from Thursday through Saturday. When we checked in on Thursday, we found a bill for the room's previous guest on the floor just inside the door, which included the guest's name and address. We turned it into the front desk clerk. We found it disturbing that housekeeping hadn't picked it up and disposed of it properly when cleaning the room. There are privacy implications there.
On Friday morning, we kept the Do Not Disturb sign on the door until we left for the day at 10:15 am. When we left, we removed the sign and housekeeping staff were working on the rooms in our hallway. Imaging our surprise when we returned to our room at 10:30 on Friday evening to discover that it looked exactly as it had when we left that morning. When I called the front desk, he said that they reported the DND sign on our door. He promptly brought up clean towels for us, which we appreciated.
On Saturday morning, our toilet backed up. I understand that happens, but it was the finishing touch to a disappointing stay.
When I mentioned the lack of housekeeping service at checkout, the front desk clerk very reluctantly asked if there was anything he could do to make the situation better. When I asked for options, he offered to add "a couple of dozen" points to my Rewards Club account.
This visit won't stop us from staying at this property again because it is the most convenient hotel for our family visits and the staff is usually great. I really hope this is an isolated incident. If not, I may have to investigate alternatives.
**Note that, with the exception of the previous guest's receipt, our room was clean upon arrival. The Con side refers to the lack of housekeeping service on our second night.

Great location. Staff was very helpful and attentive. Beds were sooo very comfortable. Wished I would have brought my swimsuit, as the pool looked very inviting. Next time I certainly will.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by beyourself1st Excellent staff over and above
Staff was wonderful granted they were extremely slow at this time during Christmas but very helpful I left my phone cord in room had it waiting for me at the front desk instead of the lost and found. The breakfast lady was extra sweet bringing me food when I was late for breakfast one day. The front desk got me a ice bucket when I forgot mine...little things that mean a lot when customer service is being considered.
The only complaint I had was the water was cold in the tub/shower at first and took like 5 min to warm up and never did address this w the staff my fault I was too busy that weekend w family. I should have said something about that but it was so neat and clean I guess I overlooked it by the time my shower was over.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Chitownvacationer Great location and comfortable room
This was a fantastic location, great value! I know some people mention the rooms are small - yes, but if you are coming to Chicago, it shouldn't be for the room. Location was just a couple of blocks from Michigan Avenue and central to places I wanted to go. Room was very nice and stylish, with a super-comfortable bed. Hotel was pretty quiet, nice staff and good breakfast in the morning. I would stay at this hotel again in a heartbeat!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by kahlua303 Second floor TOO hot
We stayed two nights using my points. We weren't at the hotel except to sleep and that was difficult because it was SO very hot. I had the AC turned on in the middle of winter and couldn't get the room any cooler than 74 degrees. From now on, I'm requesting 1st floor rooms. I love Holiday Inn Expresses but this seems to be a continuing problem.

We thoroughly enjoyed our 4 night stay. The staff were there to please. Maid service was excellent. Great choices for breakfast. Warmest indoor pool we have ever experienced. Good equipment in the gym. Only problem we experienced was a bad shower head in our room.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by scouterdave Disappointed, and never coming back
I was very dissappointed by our Rewards Night experience at the HIE-Troy,IL on October 25-27, 2013. I reserved two rooms for two nights and had no trouble accessing the rooms, particularly when the others in my group arrived 20 minutes before I did.
However, the hotel looks and feels worn out. The halls, stairs, and bedrooms need new carpet - or at the very least cleaning. Many areas smell of pets and smoke. The elevator is loud & needs maintenance on the door mechanism. The safety latch on our door was loose because it had been slammed into the closet a few too many times and left a hole in the wall.
We found an Altoids container under the pillow of one of the beds leading us to believe that not only were the comforters not clean and fresh, but there's no way housekeeping could have changed the sheets after the last guests. The staff was quick to change the linens while we were out, but GAH - that's disgusting.
Breakfast offered brown mushy bananas, cold biscuits, lukewarm cinnamon rolls, and orange juice-colored water. The bacon was good.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by SwimteamDriver Excellent choice for families
Spouse and three kids were with me in the 2Queen/Kids Suite and it was fantastic - plenty of room, clean, kitchen/fridge, in-room Jacuzzi (huge), bunk beds and extra TV (with bean bag) for the kids. No complaints - definitely staying here next time in town! Breakfast was typical HI Express breakfast but love the cost (free!). Plenty of restaurants nearby for a quick pizza, etc.

Stayed here as it was centrally located for my business trip. Nice clean rooms, friendly staff. No recognition of priority club status, and the hotel was far from full.

Not up to usual HI Express levels. Non smoking room smelt like it had been smoked in. Seemed like a revamped old hotel. Breakfast was excellent and well done. Do not care for the pool smell when entering the lobby.

Good location to get back on I-55 before driving west thru St. Louis in the morning. Be aware of the confusing I-55 South construction detour!! Cracker Barrel across the street for meals. Friendly staff.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by citu37 Breakfast
I have always liked your breakfast choices, but I do not like the fact that you have decided to use the pancake machine (which never worked correctly for me not even when the staff member tried it) instead of the waffle machines. I also prefer the scrambled eggs instead of the eggs you now serve with the fake cheese in them. Breakfast quality has really suffered.
