“Good value for the price”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 October 2011

On our recent trip to Chicago I chose to stay at this hotel. It was a bit farther from downtown than I expected, but we learned to navigate using the public transportation. The hotel is in a very nice area in the northwest suburbs and we drove around to see the local sights. I would recommend this hotel to anyone.

I travel and stay in hotels every week and the Holiday Inn Express in Palatine truly is a great hotel experience. Their staff is friendly, professional and provide great service. They really go out of their way to make your stay fantastic! The rooms are spacious, very clean, comfortable beds, quiet/sleep friendly hallways. The breakfast and manager's reception each day are very good. And the free access to World's Gym next door is awesome! The accomodating staff, flexibility and can & will do attitude expressed is very refreshing. I would highly recommend this hotel to any traveler to the Palatine area.

I stay in hotels every week and the Holiday Inn Express in Palatine beats them all with their friendly staff and great service. The rooms are comfortable, the breakfast and manager's reception are very good, we like the free gym access next door, and when we need to take a group to our office or a restaurant they are ready for us. Couldn't ask for more.

I would say that the service here is fantastic and the staff is more than gracious even when housing a large group of guests (which is frequent with my company!) They worked very hard to earn our business and are working even harder to keep it which is rare in this day and age. Thank You for everything!

I have a 51 mile commute each way to work and one of the options my husband and I have started doing is staying at the Holiday Inn Express in Palatine 2 days a week. There are several reasons we chose this particular hotel. It's very customer service oriented and the staff is always helpful and cheerful. By having our breakfast at the hotel (which is ready by 6:00 a.m.), we save money. We also save money by utilizing the full gym complete with swimming pool perfect for swimming laps. I highly recommend this hotel to others.

Room Tip: Some of the rooms have microwaves in them.

Spent a weekend here for pleasure and some work. Did not get to use the pool. Had odd hours hence wasnt sure if pool was open.
Internet connection was very good but the hotel otherwise was quite average. Ok but nothing special.
breakfast bar ok. Nice pancakes.

Room Tip: noice from elevator at night

Walk in and find a very trendy design in the lobby. All reception personnel have been very friendly. The trendy feel continues in the elevator. The rooms are vey well appointed, and updated. Very, very comfortable feel.

There is a full gymnasium with over 10 treadmills and a full weight room with boh machines and free weights. You can also play basketball or run around the indoor track.

Close to several restauarants. My favorite - Fox & Hound (sports bar) is 1 mile away. Cose enough to walk, but with constuction on the bridge, you are better to drive. Also have several other restaurants close by - French, Mexican and a few chains.

Breakfast has been very nice. Manager's reception on Tuesday & Wednesday was an unexpected treat. Domestic beer, wines, and snack foods....a good appetizer before the main meal at any restaurant.
