we stayed overnight on the park and fly plan - this allowed us a hotel room, parking and shuttle service to and from the airport. Going to the airport in the early morning was handled very well, but the pickup at 12:30 in the afternoon was horrendous. We waited 25 minutes in 25 degree weather for a pickup - I... More

I have stayed in many Holiday Inn facilities. This one I chose due to proximity to the airport. The room was very clean, the staff were extremely helpful, the free shuttle was not only on time, but the lady driver was more than helpful and friendly, especially so early on a freezing morning. Free Wifi in my room was great.... More

Stayed here for a work trip. First impressions - lobby looks very nice - cafe and bar area are cool. Get to the room. Super out-dated and dark. I was not a fan at all.

The most outstanding man we have ever met, extremely helpful. This gentleman went above and beyond helping us, This hotel should be so proud to have such a outstanding employee. We won't stay anywhere else while in your area. Wish he worked for us, finding a man like this is rare. Looking forward to seeing him next year.
