Holiday Inn Chicago Northwest-Elgin, Elgin
Poor Management
we were on the 8th floor, IT SMELLED LIKE A SEWER. told management and was ASKED if we wanted to change rooms; not offered. given excuse of being at 15% capacity so sewer system was drying out causing the stench. I paid for two nights at a total of over $260. poor excuse for hotel management with cavalier attitude. NEVER again☹️

I can't say enough good things about this hotel. We were in town for my mother-in-law's funeral. The manager was incredibly kind and bent over backward to help us in every way she could. The hotel also offers a nice buffet breakfast for a very reasonable price. The beds are comfortable and the hotel is well-maintained. I'll stay there again next time I'm in Elgin.
