Had the great good fortune to have Nikki be my server at the Holiday Inn restaurant/bar. Actually, it was 3 different times which impressed me with the extensive hours she was working. Next visit I will look for her again.

We didn't have much of a view unless you like looking at the top level of the parking ramp since we were on the 3rd floor. But the room was comfortable enough with a refrigerator and a nice... More
