My wife and stayed there on April 26th, 2007. The hotel is located
two blocks from Midway Airport, and I was worried because I am a light sleeper. But I had no problems. There are several other hotels and a TGI-Friday restaurant, where we ate after check-in, within easy walking distance. Curiously, while the airport noise was not a problem, the noise in our first floor room was. The dinging of the elevator bell is still in my head. And there was a lot of foot traffic outside our room. If we ever stay there again, we will ask for a room on an upper floor and away from the elevator. Everything else was fine. And the location is ideal for visiting Chicago.

We had to find a hotel quickly for a sick adult relative departing from Midway. It was a flu bug but she couldn't fly out as planned that day. We drove around and got her a room at the Holiday Inn Express and proceeded to change her flight to the next day.

The staff at the desk was quick, efficient and very accomodating. I have never had more professional, cooperative service at a hotel.

The rooms were clean, quiet and allowed her to get much needed rest so she could recover. The staff graciously held her calls and ensured she would have privacy and peace for her respite.

Kudos to the folks at this hotel for their fabulous service and fantastic attitudes!!

Nice and clean hotel, about an hour ride to and from downtown Chicago, taking the orange line... paid an average of $128 cause of the jacuzzi, really not bad at all...

  • Liked — price of the hotel stay with jacuzzi
  • Disliked — about being charged $ 5.00 per phone call even local calls
  • Tips/Secrets — dont use the hotel phone ! :)

I was pleasantly surprised at how nice this hotel is. The lobby is warm and inviting and the rooms are very clean. The bathroom was large with a very nice tub. The included breakfast was excellent with wonderful cinnamon rolls. This is really a good value for a nice property.

Convenient, clean and quiet. Free breakfast is ok too with cereals, fruits, bagels and toastable items and hardboiled eggs. Not the hautiest of cuisine but good and fast enough and the price is right.

Nearby Midway Airport has a terminal for CTA elevated trains or buses and is only a short walk away of a few blocks. A great way to get exercise on nice days. The Midway hotels complex also has a free shuttle 24/7 if you don't want to walk it or the weather's bad.

Front desk staff was most helpful at check-in even securing our room much earlier than posted check-in time or they also offered the night before to secure our luggage until our room would be ready. As I said, we didn't have to wait as soon as we came over from the other hotel (had to switch for availability of rooms) and they had us a room right away.

My only complaint about this hotel is the in-room internet service is sssllllloooowwwww!!! The wireless internet signal strength was always "low" and the ethernet cable thru the wall outlet was nothing better. Unfortunately, the front desk staff was clueless how to help this. I know it wasn't my laptop as I'd been using it at the hotel next door (wireless) just the previous 3 days before here and it worked fine. Works fine everywhere else I've taken it.

Went to Chicago for Son's wedding. Hotel was not only convienient but had friendly, helpful staff. Room was very clean, updated and well supplied with towels and necessities. Morning breakfast room was indeed an upgrade from the usual continental breakfast with many choices to choose from. If I had to say anything negative I would have to blame it on the weather. It rained one night of our stay and before we looked out to see that it was raining it sounded like someone was playing drums outside our window. The rain was beating down on some kind of overhang that sounded hollow. Otherwise bearing good weather this was a most enjoyable stay and not only would recomend but would and will make a return stay when in Chicago.
