We've stayed at the Holiday Inn Chicago Mart Plaza hotel quite a few times. Whether you're there for a fun trip in Chicago or for business, it's a hidden gem at a good value. The hotel sits on top of the SunTimes building next door to the Merchandise Mart. The hotel has convenient onsite parking with in/out privileges. If you're...

Close to many of the attractions in Chicago. The hotel river/city view is truly awesome. Room had 60" flat screen TV. Fresh linens were provided daily. There is an indoor pool and...

This was my first trip to Chicago and couldn't have picked a better location for a hotel!! The train is right across the street (actually don't even have to go outside) and was so easy to use!! We did not rent a car and was able to get all over the city with no problems at all! We went to...

The gentleman that helped me check in was amazing! He was so nice, friendly, and accommodating. We were given drink vouchers for the hotel bar that has some more amazing views. Our room was upgraded to the corner suite and we had views from both sides! We didn't have a chance to use the pool but it's a plus that...

Stayed here and wasn't impressed with the lobby, hallways (very claustrophobic) but the actual room was spacious and comfortable. The bathroom was also nice, spacious. The location is great if you are meeting in the Merchandise Mart. The parking is self only (no valet offered) which is a bit of a hassle.... especially since the price for it was valet...

Brought 75 school children from Wales to stay here after a couple of days skiing close by. Very impressed with the hotel, our children were in awe of it when we first arrived in the lifts. Organisation was great, I had booked nearly 30 rooms and they were all ready and labelled up for me upon my arrival. We were...

This wasn't the easiest place to get into. It felt as though they crammed this hotel in place. Parking is off site and not included with your stay. You'll pay almost $40 per night. The hotel is co-located with offices, etc. Once you get in the lobby, you have to get to the 15th floor for the hotel reception. Otherwise,...

Just spent 3 terrific nights here. It's a great location alongside the river and easily accessible to all parts of central Chicago within a 20 min walk to either Michigan Av or in the other direction the Sears Tower. A stunning double aspect bar looking out over the city on floor 15 is a must see. Special mention to Zohair...
