It had a great bed, a big room, a clean, well appointed bathroom, a superb coffee maker etc. All you would expect. What made the stay even better was the indoor pool with jacuzzi,... More

This hotel is packed with great amenities and topped off with outstanding service. My daughter celebrated her 11th birthday in a suite with a few friends. We loved the indoor pool and the cookies and milk buffet. We will definitely be back for a staycation ome weekend.

The hotel is located near the convention center, this is a Holiday inn so don't expect luxury service. The staff was nice and the little indoor pool was cute but left unattended as there were kid toys all over the place.
