We stayed at this hotel because it was recently refurbished and in the Downtown Disney area. The remodeling is very tasteful. Every one of the employees were very pleasant, and one in particular was exceptional--Imane. Unfortunately, our long-awaited vacation was marred by the last night. We had not been advised that a large group of men had overtaken the hotel and reserved the pool for the entire day and night, until 1 a.m. The night was made worse because we had been given a "free" upgrade with a pool view--and the music was disco loud. However, the management of the Holiday Inn removed the charge for that night, making the unfortunate situation tolerable. I suggest calling before making a reservation to inquire about planned events, in order to avoid a similar situation.
