Great stay in Chicago

All good,staff very helpful
GRAHAM, gb1 night trip
Holiday Inn Express Chicago-Magnificent Mile
Value for money
The only negative point was the heavy usage on disposable cutlery/plates/cups - both in buffet breakfast & rooms. This is a massive waste of money and resources and most of the items would not be easily recycled. Consider switching to reusable plastic or China. Also rooms are small, i.e. Not much space around bed. More like a small bedroom not a hotel room, but good price & location

Great hotel - shame amount partners
Great Location and good value for money with good selection breakfast. Room was tiny though and never ever use Ceetiz (who recommend) for excursions in Chicago or anywhere....worse company possible who charged more than they said they would and have no phone service even though they advertise a number.
