Stayed for a night the beginning of the month while on a tour. The tour group picked hotels and I was a little nervous after reading reviews. They are in the process of switching names/ownership but it really didn't have that much of effect. Since I was on a tour I didn't have a car so the area didn't have... More

I will start with the bright points: Comfortable bed, although the bed spread was thin. The air conditioning worked great, especially in light of hot summer temperatures. The room was nice and clean. Friendly and courteous staff. They provide transportation to and from the airport. The average: Was awakened by railroad train whistles passing nearby the hotel in the morning,... More

My family and I stayed for 1 night to attend a wedding in the area. As "dottopilot" mentioned, they are under renovation and as a result most of all the art work has been removed and the lobby bar/restaurant is closed. Don't expect a bell hop or anyone to welcome you -- in fact, you might even drive by the... More

I was quite impressed with the culinary expertise of Chef Joshua in the hotel's "Zest Restaurant". He made it a point to come out and chat with guests. Food was over the top. Well above where it normally is at a hotel. This chef is going places. He actually creates dishes that are creative and "outside of the box". Some... More

This property is now called Fresno Inn. It was the Holiday Inn Downtown Convention. It is a mid rise property with a large lobby. There is a small shop in the lobby, bar and restaurant. The hall ways are a little dark, but the rooms are large with large windows the size of sliders (I think they once opened). The... More

We stayed here one night and found this to be a clean, modern hotel. The room was large and comfortable with a king bed. The furnishings were new looking and in good condition. Front desk staff was courteous and efficient. Parking and wifi are free. Breakfast is not included so we drove to a Denny's not far away. The is... More

My bad experience with this hotel started before I even left the parking garage. The elevator took forever to come, and when it finally showed up, the door shut on me as I was walking through it! Check in was quick, then back to the attack elevator for round 2, which shut on my foot as I was trying to... More

It surprises me, how someone can be made to look at the Cooling tower and other equipment outside the window of a starred hotel room.
