This is a former Holiday Inn and recently converted to the Grand Suites. Stayed here for two nights. The best thing about this hotel is the staff. Very friendly. Room was clean but some areas need updating. I sat on down on the sofa sleeper and sank down. Needs replacing. Flat screen TV's in both rooms worked well and had a good channel selection. A/C works well but is noisy.
Mattress seemed new and overall comfortable. Sheets and duvet thin but new. Linens were cheap. I had a room on the third floor and there is a train that passes close to the north side of the building. The horn woke me out of a sound sleep and scared the heck out of me. Parking can be tight if the hotel is booked.
My biggest complaint was the wireless internet. HORRIBLE! The later in the evening it became non existent. That alone would keep me from booking this hotel again. Upgrade the wireless and replace some furnishings and repaint the rooms with a lighter color to brighten them up and you could turn this place around. One final note. This place has a beautiful courtyard. Get the bar open in the evenings.
