I had a business conference last week at another nearby well known nationally branded hotel. Unfortunately, I tried to book the room too late & none were available at the very attractive 'conference room' rate. The rack rate was unacceptably high; which prompted looking for a better option online. I am glad I did.
I have stayed at the InterContinental before --as well as the other hotel where my conference was located. Clearly, the Intercontinental was the better choice. The property is cleaner, more modern, and, available on line for only $ 40 more than the 'conference room rate' at the other hotel.
When I arrived, I had dinner at Shula's lounge and was not disappointed. The hot food at the Buffet Breakfast at Shula's the next morning was, however, cold. The staff fell all over themselves to make it right. So, I cannot complain.
The hotel was clean, modern, and the young staff very friendly and accommodating.
I would stay here again.
