Being a platinum elite member the manager was very unhelpful with the parking cost. There for a payroll conference parking was included but because I used points they wouldn't remove the $30 fee. You think with the business they got from platinum elite they would eat it but no they didn't. Very noisy hotel and card to use ac awful

The staff is friendly and the rooms are clean. The location is conveniently located near the campus and downtown. Market Square is a ten minute walk. We usually try to stay here during football season. They offer a late night buffet after games.

The location was great and the staff was very accommodating, warm and friendly. Walkable distance to Market Square but we took a free shuttle due to impending thunderstorm. Wasn't as up to date as I usually see in a Holiday Inn, but it was clean. Just remember to add in the parking fees when comparing hotel prices and they charge... More
