I used to stay at the Holiday Inn since it was inexpensive and relatively convenient to Steamworks. However, the Holiday Inn's rooms are very dated, drafty, small, and noisy. The Doubletree, which is usually only a few dollars more, is in a whole other class. Large, clean, quite rooms with great bathrooms make all the difference. The breakfast isn't bad, either; if you can snag it cheaply by pre-paying definitely go ahead and do so.
