They are renovating the entire hotel. I stayed here on business. Great bar with really good drinks!!! The rooms are modern and the WiFi is awesome. They have excellent hospitality here and treat the guest with respect and dignity. this place is top notch and I can't wait to see this place once all of the renovations are completely finished.

Had a problem with an on line booking from booking.com. The front desk staff person (Leonard?) went the extra effort to make sure we had a room and that we weren't charged twice. As they are doing construction, be sure to ask for a room away any work below you. When noise below was disruptive, they immediately moved us to... More

We were thrilled to stay in a completely renovated room. The bed & chairs were very comfortable & the bathroom light and fresh.

Couldn't say enough great things about this stay. The hotel was brand new and blew my expectations out of the water. Much better than the former Holiday Inn concept. Hotel is essentially brand new (rooms, lobby, bar, everything). Great sleep on a new bed; great food in the new restaurant. Got to give this place an A+.

This hotel was a Hilton, and it was very nice, though desperately in need of updating. So, a few months back the updating started, though I was disappointed to hear that this would involve a change to becoming a Holiday Inn (the Hilton beds are MUCH more comfortable!). I stayed there a month or so ago, and it was in... More

When we called the front desk directly to reserve a two night stay they NEVER told us that their hotel was under construction. You start to hear them working at 7:30 AM. Not exactly relaxing for a weekend stay. The pool is very small. 2 feet to 3 feet deep only. No hot tub. The fitness room was out of... More
