Stayed here for two nights and if everything hadn't been booked up, I would have left in the middle of the night. We were on the 4th floor and evidently above the bar because a Zydeco band played until almost 2 a.m. It was so loud that our room vibrated. I called twice to complain to a disinterested front desk. You also couldn't park if you left in the evenings because all the people who came to the bar took up all the parking. We had to park a street over in the overflow parking lot. The second night, I thought surely not again, but yes, same band and same noise. This time I asked to talk to a manager who couldn't move us because they were booked full, but took a whomping $40 off my bill. I also discovered some ants or some sort of insects in the bathroom the morning of checkout. After this experience, I will never stay with Holiday Inn anywhere.
