I highly recommend this hotel for your next meeting or party event. We held a Wedding Rehearsal Dinner in one of the meeting rooms. The food, atmosphere and service was great. They offer a shuttle to the nearby shops and restaurants at Gulf Coast Center which helps to keep it safe if you have one of Blue Sushi's fine martinis. I have said it several times - this Holiday Inn exceeded my expectations. I am very grateful to everyone at Holiday Inn for helping to make our wedding weekend great.
