People rave so much about this place and I was looking forward to staying here but totally regretted it. The check-in and check-out process was so long because there aren't enough personnel. I shouldn't have to wait in line 15 minutes for each.
A coworker of mine and I had to stay here no thanks to our company travel coordinator. When you come in you're overwhelmed with air freshener also in the rooms. Didn't work well, because when I turned the heat on in my room (the heat stopped working in the middle of the night), my room ended up smelling like cat pee the whole time. The carpet was filthy and turned my socks brown. My mattress and sheets had stains on them (took pictures) and there were balls of hair on the top blanket. The pillows are not of regular size, they are the size of decorative throw pillows and so uncomfortable.
Part of the hotel is only "marina-view" - not water view. You'd be looking at boats, not the river. If you end up in an inner view room, you're overlooking an overgrown, lack of landscaping area with a non-working fountain full of dead leaves.
I had high hopes because I stayed at a Holiday Inn Express before that was great but this Holiday Inn was disappointing.
