I booked a room for two nights for $119, but upon checking out discovered the 2nd night was $159. I strongly suggest checking at check in on the room rate if it's more than one night. The rooms have no microwaves or refrigerators, and we always travel with items that need refrigeration. Otherwise, the room was okay.

In this case, our management and ownership determine our own pricing strategies and policies in accordance with local demand...

The rooms were clean and the staff was great, but at Holiday Inn Express they always are. Jodi and Kat working at the front desk were amazing. They gave us an awesome restaurant recommendation and their customer service skills were amazing. Next time I come to the Chicago area, I will definitely consider this hotel.

The room was fine, older establishment, reasonable rate. AM breakfast included, but was relatively limited. The best part of the stay was the staff.
