Arrived after 9 hour drive for Fanboy Expo. Convention center literally across the street. Hotel staff very welcoming. Room comfortable, clean, and spacious.Took a few minutes to find controls for lights and AC. (Hint: Read the instructions on the door. LOL). AC control is on the wall next to bed. Room on street side, yet traffic noise was only noticable... More

The room was clean and well appointed, although the bathroom was a little small. The rooms were quiet and we had a view of downtown from the eighth floor. The location is great. Very close to the interstate and walking distance to the river and downtown foodspots.

We found the staff at this hotel to be exceptional. From the front desk to the attendant at breakfast, they were friendly and hospitable. Our room was nice, the carpets could have been cleaner and the a/c was loud, but tolerable. The hotel is in walking distance to the downtown area and world's fair park which we found charming. If...

The hotel is in a good location but suffers the usual Holiday Inn failings of looking a little old fashioned and being in need of some maintenance. The room was fine with a decent bed, although it did have very noisy air conditioning. WiFi worked great for one week, was very intermittent the next. However, the staff were excellent. Special...

This was a priceline "win" that wasn't. Lobby was decent, however, the room felt dingy and dirty. Train woke me up around 4:00. Felt pretty sure it was about to be in the room with me, it was that loud. If the carpet could be replaced, the room would have seemed fine, but dirty carpet makes the whole room feel... More

Conveniently located just off I-40, this hotel is situated in World's Fair Park near numerous travel services (restaurants, gas stations, etc.), the convention center, and the UT campus. The front desk clerk (Sara) was friendly and courteous, warmly greeting us as IHG Rewards Club members and immediately posting our Welcome Bonus Points. Our spacious room was immaculately clean, extremely quiet,... More

We stayed here in June when our daughter competed at the USTA Nationals at the Convention Center across the street. Its a very clean property and our rooms were very clean and nice. The hotel front desk worked with us as we had to make two separate reservations when we booked in April as could not get the Group rate... More
