After two really bad experiences with the chain in Texas and Louisiana i swore I would never stay at a Holiday Inn again.
However after reading a few good reviews and getting a special deal thought i would give it another go.
The whole experience at this hotel was great.
Early check in
Room service good
Counter staff excellent
The bathroom is a bit dated and the gym small but all fine.
If i had to make a suggestion for improvement it would be for the waiting staff in the restaurant. They were if anything too attentive checking all was ok all the time. I don't think the three of them communicated who was looking after which tables. (this is really picky though) The food was excellent. Highly recommend the seafood paella
So yes i will be back to this hotel other Holiday Inn I am not sure yet.
