Positive Reviews

Friendly, knowledgeable staff

The front desk staff have received numerous positive reviews for their cheerful, professional customer service, with guests often noting that they are happy to share their knowledge of Chicago's many fine restaurants and attractions. Several guests gratefully comment that the team is quick to offer complimentary bottled water on a hot day and to otherwise "go above and beyond" to make guests feel comfortable and welcome.

Well connected location

In addition to the city buses and the Blue Line, guests use the nearby hop on/hop off buses to get to many of Chicago's best sights, such as the Navy Pier, Shedd Aquarium, Millenium Park, Willis (formerly Sears) Tower, and the Art Institute of Chicago. The Amtrak station is also steps away.

Clean, comfortable rooms

The rooms are generally described as clean, with comfortable furnishings and plenty of space. In the heat of the summer, guests love the outdoor pool. The hotel restaurant has received many positive reviews as well.

Negative Reviews

High traffic area

Several guests were disturbed by traffic noise, as there is a CTA terminal across the street and the Interstate is nearby. Others noted that though many top attractions are within easy reach, the hotel's immediate neighborhood is a bit "industrial".

Pricey parking

Though many guests give the valet attendant high marks for his prompt and professional service, some are also taken aback by the nightly fee for parking.

Time for an update..

Some guests note that the Holiday Inn & Suites Chicago-Downtown is an older building, and despite the best efforts of the housekeeping and maintenance staff, the rooms have an unmistakably "old and tired" feeling. Others were turned off by cigarette odor in non-smoking rooms, or had trouble with the Wi-Fi.
