I have stayed a number of times in Griffin on business and normally at the Holiday inn next door . However the last two times I have stayed has been here .Previously the hotel was called the Iris and has now joined the Quality /Comfort brand . There has been no real change in the facilities or the standard since the brand change. The rates are so much better than holiday inn and unless you need a pool no real difference in the quality. Rooms are very spacious and an added benefit here is they have dedicated smokers rooms . I managed a suite at no additional charge for my last stay. Result....
Staff are friendly and most helpful to outsiders and european travellers .The hotel is a hotel rather than what I would consider a motel such as the hampton or howard johnson.
TV is a little limited but no different from regular found in other hotels .Breakfast is buffet and although not european standards adequate .
Beds are made every day and extremely big .Rooms are Air con'd , a little noisy but far quieter than other US hotel rooms of this standard .
The hotel has all the requirements for a travelling businessman /woman with hi speed internet ( non firewalled I add ) ,fridge , microwave and spacious cupboards. Decor is relaxed and reasonable and in good condition .
Bathroom has good pressure showers and a bath.
Hotel is situated within walking distance of some great restaurants ( up the hill ) and Walmart . ( not as close as Howard Johnson but not that much further ) .
Choice between Holiday Inn and this is a no brainer for me ....
I will update my entry on the Holiday inn .....
