This is a great place to stay just a few blocks away from Midway airport. The rooms are nice and a wonderful breakfast buffet is included with your reservation. A free shuttle bus service to Midway runs every 20 minutes from the 10 hotels in this complex. We took the CTA train from the airport to downtown Chicago each day... More

The hotel was absolutely wonderful. It was conveniently located to many restaurants, walgreens, and gas stations to refuel our rental car. The bed was great. It was supportive and had a pillow top mattress. I had a great shower with soft towels and soft toilet paper. We had a great view of planes landing at Midway, but they were not... More

The HIE is a great place to overnight when you have an early flight out of Midway. We arrived about 7pm and were greeted by a lovely young lady. We inquired about the shuttle and we're informed that you do not need a reservation, but they would radio the driver that we are waiting. Breakfast is included and starts at... More

With out a doubt one of our best experiences. From the moment we walked in the service was great! Our flight was very early so we were too early for even early check in.

Arrived quite late and requested an early wake-up call, which came right on time! Buffet breakfast was "standard-fare", essentially. Coffee was great. Lots of towels in bathroom. Quiet room on second floor, over-looking lobby. (Jill was the helpful desk agent--both at check-in and departure.) We paid $200 with AAA, but it was a last-minute change to a closer-in hotel. Dropped-off... More

There is really nothing I can say bad about this hotel. The elevator was a little scary at times but our experience at this hotel was absolutely amazing!! Everything from the check-in to the check-out. The staff was friendly; food items and pool were great. Parking lot wasn't scary.

Very nice excellent breakfast and pool. Only complaint is that there is no refrigerator, microwave in every room bit of a lottery. Traveled with family of 10 but didn't get rooms close to each other. Check in went well with a large group. Shuttle service outstanding. Would have given higher rating if hotel provided refrigerator and microwave in each room.

A very clean, well designed hotel. Awesome rooms and great breakfast in the AM. Big shout out to the woman at the front desk working at 11pm on 7/16. She saved my life by having a screwdriver to fix my eyeglasses. On top of that gave very valuable pizza advice. Thumbs up to her!!
