The hotel is quite clean, the front desk is very kind & capable, the rooms are quite comfortable! The hotel's location is very convenient to the train station . You are within walking distance to many eateries as well at the beginning of the very historic Route 66, on Jackson Avenue. This is not a resort, it is pretty much...

I checked in on a cold and rainy night. Let's be kind and say that they guy who was checking in ahead of me was having a bad day. Either that or he's just a total jerk. Either way, he was surly and nasty to the front desk employee for no reason whatsoever. That employee, Romali, handled it like a...

We decided last minute to take the train to Chicago. It is a great location with closeness to Union Station. Only took us 5 or so minutes to walk to hotel. Staff was very friendly and the room was very clean. Only down side is the bathroom is really small, but it worked.

Stayed here on a business trip to Chicago. It's a fair hotel, exactly what you'd expect from a Holiday Inn. Clean room and friendly staff.
