“Ugh...Boring Location, Typical Holiday Inn Rooms”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 February 2013

I stayed at this hotel overnight on a business trip and found the hotel to be your standard Holiday Inn from the inside. Nice large rooms, the standard Holiday Inn decor and comfy beds, free internet that worked great. From the outside I thought the location of the hotel was horrible and even though it was almost connected to a strip mall you still had to drive to mostly anything. The drive into Chicago took me about 45 minutes and about the same time from the closest airport (MDW). The hotel is located right next to the interstate and I would assume it was typically used for a truck driver’s rest stop (based on the trucks in the parking lot) or for large conferences. If you are traveling for anything else outside of that...I would not recommend this hotel unless you want to die from boredom.

Front desk staff is rude and not knowledgeable whatsoever. I cut my long drive a little short to get some rest and catch the Super Bowl, and after checking in and dragging all my stuff down to my room, I discovered that the DON'T HAVE CBS. What?!? Thanks for mentioning that at the front desk. There are so many options in the area that I left. Don't waste your time stopping here!

I stayed at this property for the first and last time a few weeks ago. I always make reservations ahead of time, and always make the staff aware in the "Comments" when I'm bringing along my small dog. Upon check-in, I assumed the young man at the desk was aware of my pet being with me. He had nearly completed the process including my upgrade (Platinum member) when I asked if he had included the pet fee. He responded that he hadn't as he wasn't aware that I had a dog. He then informed me that he would have to put me in a 2 double-bed room on the first floor. I asked him if there was a manager I could speak with about it and he said "no". Initially I thought he was simply rude and disinterested, but as the exchange continued, it was apparent that he simply had no experience and was operating by the seat of his pants. As a single woman, I never like staying on the first floor. To add further insult to injury, so to speak, this room was in a separate wing of the hotel, very isolated from EVERYthing, and there were only 2 other vehicles in this back section during my one night stay. The hotel is not in the best area so going in and out was a little unnerving. Had I not already traveled for several hours to get there, I probably would have sought out other lodging.

Aside from all that, my room was, in a word, shabby. I stay almost exclusively at IHG (typically HI or HIE), and while the lobby area of this hotel was as inviting as conference centers can be, my room was the worst I've stayed in in a very long time.

Room Tip: Go elseswhere.

A very nice hotel. The people are very nice and helpful. The room is clean and the breakfast has a great variety. I like to stay there every time I am in the area about once a week. I prefer this hotel over others in the area.

Pros:
It was a very nice hotel. The rooms were clean and service was excellent. Victoria at the front desk was always a pleasure to deal with. Quiet with free internet; a good place for a business trip.

Cons:
Not a lot of places around in walking distance. Bar Louie (attached to hotel) had okay food, but took forever to get service. Breakfast was not included in price and ordering at Louie's took at least an hour serve food. Restaurant service was terrible.
