"Convenient (near Northwestern Univ.), comfortable and clean."
Overall Score5.0/ 5
Myra, the desk person was helpful and attentive to my questions. The staff is very welcoming and I enjoy being able to speak Spanish to employees (I'm a native English speaker). But always like to practice my Spanish (or Portuguese) whenever and wherever possible and prefer businesses that have multi liingual staffs. The more multi lingualism in this country the better in fact the more immigrants in this country the better! Holiday Inns seem to do a pretty good job of having multi lingual employees. I take that sort of policy into consideration when making a booking choice.
