My first impression: Same as other reviewers, this Holiday Inn appears to be a refurbished older hotel, and it shows in spots. Outside looks like it had a been repainted and freshened up. The lobby is very simple, but looks dated, though. Elevators also felt old and dark.
The heavy metal doors are the reminders of the original hotel. Noisey room doors that squeezed and clanked, and voices easily penetrate into the room from the hallway. Bathrooms were updated nicely with bright taps, new tub with shower, and furnishings. The room's furniture and paint look fairly fresh and modern. Carpet was in very good shape too. There was a queen-size pullout sofa bed. Large flat screen tv, microwave and mid-sized refrig. Nice sized wardrobe with iron and ironing board, and a small office desk. King bed was firm with extra long pillows, and modern headboard with ample lights, but the bedding lacked crispness. Room was average size with a single window.
We stayed on the top floor, but there was a low humming constantly in our room, so we changed. Definitely, there was traffic noise at the front of the hotel, but our room was at the back which was quieter, with the exception of occasional barking dogs from the Hunt Valley Animal Hospital right beside the hotel.
Breakfast was complimentary in a nice lounge area on the first floor. It was actually pretty good with: hot and cold drinks, cereal, bagels, muffins, yummy cinnamon buns, self-serve pancakes, biscuits and gravy (nice), scrambled eggs and sausage, yogurt, and fruit. No complaints here.
Well, it was overall worth the 5000 Hilton points per night. But, there are other options for a hotel within very short driving distance, choose wisely. Basically, this was a good average hotel. Free wireless - the way it should be! Employees were very helpful. And, oh yes, complimentary bottled water and snacks for Platinum members, of course.
