By the glowing reviews I expected the Taj Mahal :-).. it wasn't. It was a typical Holiday Inn. The good points: I was recognized at check-in as a Priority Club Diamond member and was offered a cold bottle of water, which hit the spot after a long drive. The room was nice and clean. Not so good: I walk into the room and what I see out the window is a concrete wall. So the room was pretty dark. Also, there apparently was supposed to be a microwave in the room (there was an attachment on top of the refrigerator) but when I called the desk to inquire, they said not all the rooms had a microwave. While I didn't specifically request a room with a microwave, they are pretty standard these days whether you're a Priority Club member or not.
