I was here for a Wedding in Sept 2012.
Its an older classy hotel, and nicer than any of the other Intercontinental Hotels Ive been to. Most of the others seem to be 3-4 star hotels that are a bit worn. Personally, I'm not a huge fan of the Intercontinental/IHG Hotel chain (which includes Holiday Inn), but this is a very nice place. I usually prefer startwood hotels like the W next door, but the wedding party was staying here.
The rooms are quiet, clean, and comfortable. The service was attentive and very good overall. I didnt spend much time using the hotel facilities. If you are getting a good rate, this is a great place to stay, albeit it may be a bit expensive.
