Holiday Inn Chicago Mart Plaza River North
Ranked #80 of 191 Hotels in Chicago
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 20 November 2012

While the rooms are "standard chain" Mart Plaza is a unique building with MANY shops available across the "bridge". But the million buck "cityscape view" is where Mart Plaza shines. Like a maniacal christmas tree on crack wow. Service was great, concierge was great. Price was great too. Close to Grand St, which is the main East / West line to Navy Pier. Bus service, cab service,
even airport shuttle service is fabulous. 3.75 Stars. Internet is great too. CITYSCAPE bar overlooking the city lights is stunning.

Room Tip: Choose a room from floors 20-23 for the BEST night time city views,...wow

The room is standard chain, but the million dollar river view was wonderful, especially with the large windows in the room you can really enjoy. Service was friendly as well. Not near any shopping, you do have to cab it to the restaurants(we were not adventurous enough to walk around, but Frontera Grill/Topolobampa and Lou Malnati are within walking distance) or shopping-for those should stay near Michigan Ave

As far as hotel food...it is above average, service can be spotty. It certainly is centrally located the Mart, and within walking distance to a lot of other great places.

It tends to be a business climate of course during the week, so if a large group or convention is staying in the weekend, the limited

As far as the room views....at nighttime...priceless.

This was a great spot for a girl's weekend get away! It's a bit of a walk to get to Michigan Avenue but the stroll was, by no means, boring! Right along the Chicago River, it was scenic and the room was excellent - I had a corner room that was large, clean and updated. The bathroom was a bit bland but very clean as well! The front desk was helpful and courteous! I would recommend it in a heartbeat!

Room Tip: Ask for a corner room - on the southeast side - the views are spectacular!

This Hotel has a great location. It is connected to the Merchandise Mart Building, a office and shopping mall with a nice food court in case you're on the budget. It is located almos on Wacker Street ( by the river) and from there you can go to any Downtown Chicago has plenty restaurants and bars.

It also has a CTA metro/train station (Brown Line Mercandise Station) that can take you from/to the airports ( only one quick in Clark Station) so no need to take taxi to get there.

The view was great. I stayed in the 22nd floor in a very nice corner room with an incredible view. The room and the bathroom were very good. The concierge was very kind and helpful.

Room Tip: Corner rooms have a great view

A friend of mine suggested this hotel to us and she was right. The hotel is very nice with a view of the city. It was clean and the service was great. The price was reasonable. We also went to the restaurant / bar the food was very good. They also gave us suggestions on things to see and do along with restaurants that were within walking distance. Well be back!

This Holiday Inn was very nice - the staff was very accommodating, the room was comfortable, and the views were stunning. The Cityscape Bar on the 15th floor was a good comfy spot for a drink overlooking Downtown Chicago.
Breakfast buffet offered a nice variety of standard fare. I ordered room service one night, and frankly, the chicken dinner I ordered left much to be desired. However, there are plenty of good restaurants within walking distance.
I also thought the room rates were reasonable for the quality.
