Reviewed April 26, 2013

Stayed one night in February after long flights from Europe. Good location with views of nearby beach. I can only say it's adequate, since it is very much in need of an upgrade. The room was clean but shabby with merely 2 cups of water in the fridge. The shower barely worked. The breakfast was satisfactory but the checkout needs more staff. If I needed to stay longer I would have looked elsewhere.

I expected a little more when making the reservation, but didn't really live up to that expectation. Location is very good and price was fair which included breakfast. Rooms are bit outdated, but definitely have a great view. Lobby was under construction during our stay so wasn't the best experience. Need more AC in common areas.

On a recently trip I stayed at the HI Fortaleza three times.

The hotel is a big older building, that is in some need of updating in areas. Its location, right on Iracema Beach and the views from the rooms are excellent.

The staff are very helpful and friendly, but for such a large hotel the check-in desk area is very small and this can cause delays in the checking in/out procedures.

The rooms are OK (I stayed in both the standard and larger rooms). They are clean and comfortable, but a bit dated with respect to the bathrooms and lighting arrangements.

The big negative is the internet. Complementary internet is provided but at a limited speed of up to 256kbps and the amount of devices that you can connect to this free service is also restricted.

Breakfast is a reasonable buffet, but many of the items do not look that appealing or fresh. This is offset by the seating area outside, where it is much brighter than the rather gloomy interior.

The hotel is right on the beach. The hotel is nice for the area. The rooms are very basic. I am a Platinum Royal Ambassador and did not get upgraded to a nice room. The windows are small but you can see out of them. The rooms are big and plenty of room.

The breakfast is good and many choices. The omelet station was good and they always had fresh fruits and a variety of breads and cheeses.

The front desk staff was great. They were efficient and organized and helpful. The hotel is convenient to the beaches and it was enjoyable to walk around the area and explore.

I stayed there for Business. The Check-in went smoothly. Room was nice. Connectivity was good. Breakfast was included and was a very nice one.
The beach & Atlantic Ocean are just across the street. Lots of activities in the evening on the beach.

Iracema Beach is very central to Fortaleza. It's not necessarily a good beach for swimming, but from here you can go to various other places in town. And Holiday Inn was a very good choice. International standards for a good price. Nice buffet selection for breakfast. Ample rooms, very clean, friendly staff. WiFi is available free of charge, but only 256k, that could be improved. Pool area is very nice, there's a separate room for kids and toddlers to play. No arcade or such. There's also a sauna and a small gym. Restaurants around are a bit pricey for food that's not that good, but moving about a block in either direction will give you better options. You can also walk to the Crafts Fair. All in all, we'd definitely stay here on a future trip.

Fortaleza has a hotel chain above average when you compare it to any other capital in North, Central or Northern part of Brazil. Holiday inn belongs to this statement. Rooms are big enough for a couple with 2 kids or more than enough for a couple. It has safe, hair dryer, closet, LCD TV with cable and you get the best ocean view if you get a room between the 8º to the 12º floor. Higher than that, the building has a second layer of dark windowns that I believe disturbs the view. However, I didn´t take the chance to prove it.
The location is pretty good. It´s exactly in front Iracema´s beach and from walking distance from Beira Mar avenue, where everything happens.
Swimming pool can be very disappointed if you are expecting sun bath or swimming. It´s small and after 11am there is no more sunlight on it since the sun goes to the back of the hotel building.
Breakfast is good, I have seen better though.
Service wasn´t a problem and everything we need, we got soon and accordingly

Room Tip: I stayed in room 1210 with beautiful ocean view!
