I probably would not have selected the Holiday Inn thanks to previous experience at other locations, but went for the Travelocity Top Secret to save a few bucks and ended up here. The room was pleasant and clean, with comfy bed and pillows. And it was quiet, except for the heat. My sleep was interrupted frequently throughout the night by the heater's clunking noise every time it turned on and off. Normally I would use the Fan On setting to mask the noise, but that wasn't an option and turning it off altogether didn't seem like a prudent choice in sub-zero weather. There were lots of conveniently located outlets, and the wifi was a bit sluggish but free. Plus the clean remote was a nice touch. The side chair was more comfortable than most, but it would have been better if located next to a small table for glasses and reading material.
My plans to get some work done over a quiet dinner and breakfast in the room were foiled by a combination of the room service phone line not working and the breakfast order card on my door staying right where it was until I finally gave up and left without breakfast in the morning. To be fair, the nice folks at the front desk were very apologetic and offered me breakfast in the restaurant, but by that time it was too late. In fact all of the front desk folks were pleasant and helpful, not to mention generous with their cookies. I was only there for one night and didn't try the pool or fitness center, but both looked nice as I passed by.
On the whole there was a lot to like about this place, more than I expected actually. But with the low points being as important as sleep and food, I'm a little hesitant to recommend it. On the other hand, if you're a heavy sleeper and not too lazy, I mean busy, to leave your room for a meal, it could be just right.
