This hotel is a great choice if you need to access the Merchandise Mart (especially in the winter!) because you won't have to go outside. I found this hotel to be comfortable and clean, with nice views.

I have stayed at plenty of Holiday Inn Hotels, but this one was horrible. First off it is hard to find, confusing on which street to turn on. Parking is 20 dollars if you get the parking, room pack. Parking wasn't bad, its across the street. You walk in and you have to go up to the 15th floor for...

While we had stayed at this property before, it had been a number of years since our last visit. It was a nice change from hotels on Michigan Avenue or in the River North area (although this probably qualifies as River North), but all in all was a bit disappointing. The distance from major attractions is a minor negative (very...

One of my bags just disappear from my room and the hotel staff did not take any responsibility about this issue, I have realized that when I was leaving the hotel and the manager on duty could not do anything to help me out (she...

I stayed here last week for a company conference, and was very much impressed with the hotel. The location is incredible, and views spectacular. The hotel is actually in the old Chicago Sun Times building, and the hotel begins on the 15th floor with great views of the downtown. The beds were amazing (found out that they were brand new),...

We will be revisiting this hotel again this week - it was a great location and we were able to walk to Macy's and other places we wanted to see while in Chicago with 3 little kids. The pool was nice and clean, sauna was family friendly. Hotel staff was very nice and restaurant was child friendly and we enjoyed...

With a direct walkway to the Merchandise Mart, this hotel was fabulously located. The rooms are fairly spacious (by european standards!) and the "city" view was really nice. My big bug came with my first room, located across the ice machine which was extremely loudly buzzing, and next to a room filled with women howling with laughter. The soundproofing is...

Dear Business Traveler, It is with great regret to learn we fell short in certain aspects of your stay and apologize for providing anything less than a 5-star experience. While the hotel is conveniently located for business in the Merchandise Mart and provides scenic views overlooking downtown Chicago, we understand the importance of a quiet, relaxing atmosphere when traveling away...

Loved the hotel from staff to restraunt with view of river. Room was clean . Pool was perfect. Temperature of pool was also good. The employee at front door on street was very good at what he does . Convince store was very pricey even for downtown.

Some of the best views of the river in the city. Very comfortable rooms, especially the beds. Spacious work areas and bathrooms. Within walking distance to many local restaurants and bars. If I return to Chicago, I would love to stay here again.
