With the protests going on the staff did a great job meeting and exceeding the needs of guests. Room is well appointed but a small foot print. Breakfast buffet is small but very good. Restaurant staff was awesome. Only here for one night, but it was great. Bed super comfortable. Also can't beat the location as restaurants of all price... More

Our room smelled like wet dog, but they did offer to move us or come spray. We were told it was the neutral air freshener and sometimes it doesn't agree with people. The pool on the roof was great, but will close promptly at ten. The jacuzzi had some air jets not working but it was still nice. One thing... More

Employees were all very nice, room was clean and a good mattress, and was less expensive than the Hyatt, where we usually stay. We paid $16 extra and got a great breakfast for two. We had a little problem finding how to get into the parking lot for the valet. GPS takes you to the side of the hotel with... More

Very nice hotel close to many bars, restraunts, movie theaters & museums. The area is busy during the week as there are many offices in the area. Lots of police & security & we felt very safe walking at any time if he day or night. There is no shopping area close by so you have to take uber it... More

This holiday inn has fairly standard, slightly dated rooms, but everything works and they are quiet, so that's a big thing. The pool on the roof is fantastic. But the big thing is the service. Everyone is friendly and super-diligent, and they all relate to each other well, which is a nice thing to see. Makes you feel like part... More

This property is located smack dab in the middle of downtown where all the action is. This is the Commerce Center with hustle and bustle. Restaurants and bars are every 6 feet. Be sure to drive around to pull in front of the hotel to unload. You can self park for $18 or valet for$24. We chose to have the... More

the hotel looks like it is going through some piecemeal renovations. my room was extremely loud with street traffic and there was a constant dripping from the air conditioner. would recommend somewhere else.

Location is fantastic with being able to walk to all the main attractions downtown. Rooms are just ok and show wear. My first stay in 2013 was much better. Of course the hotel has aged three years since then and does not seem to have had a major room renovation. Both times I did not choose the hotel, it was... More

The only bad thing I have to say about the hotel is that they need a better valet staff in the morning for easier check outs. The bar in the hotel need a broader variety on the menu. Everything else was nice.

From the moment we pulled in to the moment we left, we experienced five star treatment from all the staff. Our check in was the most pleasant and easy process, we were shown the utmost consideration - my husband uses a mobility scooter for ease, he can walk but it makes life easer for him as he is on oxygen....
