“Very average hotel”
Reviewed June 28, 2012

Got it on Hotwire for $105 (normal rate is $149). A couple of snafu's getting us to our room, but no big deal. Front desk was swamped. Rooms are very average. Gym has no weights. No good restaurants within walking distance. Should be a $59 hotel.

Room Tip: Don't choose the 3rd floor unless you like looking at the air conditioning units.

This hotel is a testament to how all hotels should be. Excellent customer service, elegant and provides the best of service and hospitality in every way. Will keep coming back as often as I can. My sincere compliments to the management and staff. If only our federal government was as well managed.

Room Tip: Top floors for a good view. Don't worry, the elevators are extremely fast.

My mouth dropped open when I first walked through the door. This hotel is beautiful. My job requires me to stay in different hotels several times a week and this holiday inn was the most beautiful one I've seen. I was amazed to see how much space I had in the room and how comfortable the beds were. I loved all the very soft, fluffy pillows too! Not to mention, How clean and fresh my room was, which also had an amazing view of the city. All of the hotel staff were very friendly and the vice president, who happened to be there, was incredibly friendly. Greeting everyone as they came in and bidding the people goodbye, as they left. Top notch hospitality, for sure! Definitely a hotel worth staying at on vacation.

This is not your typical Holiday Inn. Totally renovated, just walking in the door is amazing. Rooms are large, great views, bed is perfect; after a long day of working, this is a dream. The staff is friendly and follow through with requests with a smile. As airline crew, we were met at the airport without having to call or wait, snack and drink provided and keys in the van. Lots to do. A definite choice for a future vacation.

I stay here for business last week and had and overall great experience. Not like your normal holiday inn. The beds were comfy, just 2 blocks from tons of great local restaurants and bars. Sky lounge at the 17th floor gives you a great view of the city too. Highly recommend!
