This hotel has a good location near the airport, and is a short drive into the City. The room we got was clean and of a good size. There is also a great Mexican eatery around the corner, El Palenque Taqueria, at Kingston Street.
However, the front desk staff were sadly the most disinterested I have seen in a long time - one was eager to pass tasks off to the next shift when we made inquiries ("Come back tonight, I'm only working here for two days."), while another was distracted with typing what I can only assume was a personal message on her iPhone, keeping us standing there waiting for a good half minute or more. Holiday Inn really needs to train its staff better.
