“Nice hotel!”
Reviewed September 1, 2013

Stayed for a weekend trip; full-family. The rooms are smallish but clean with modern "contemporary" details like dark woods, upscale bedcoverings...

The mattresses aren't upscale; if you're used to a Westin or Kimpton property, they're not all-that. But, good.

This HI was attached to a "Machine Shed" restaurant. It's good, not great; food is heavy buffet-type fare. Long on calories, short on quality/taste. Comfort food.

The pool area was very nice! Expansive; short pool but very well maintained.

Coffee in the lobby was good, too.

We did have a chance to check room service; ordered more towels and waited...maybe...three minutes. That's a record! WTG!

Recommended.

My husband and I spent two nights here so we would be centrally located for the Nature Valley Grand Prix bike race. We had a king room, room was spacious and classy. The bathroom was huge! Pool area is great. Lots of shopping and restaurants near hotel. Plan to stay again next year!

This hotel was converted from a private label property in the recent past. It is well kept and provides a good environment for recharging after a long day and I imagine would be good for visiting families with the interior swimming pool and whirlpool. There is a restaurant/bar attached to the hotel which is convenient, but it seems to stop serving food early than most and closes overall at 11PM which I think is early.

A block off of 94 - a mile east of 494/694 so it provides good access to the local areas around and can easily support business visits North/South of 94 on the 494/694 loop.

Not bad. Nice room/bath floorplan, good storage, in-room coffee, updated bedding and decor.
Minor complaints only: big glob/smear of dust on the desk, water stains in bathroom not all wiped down. Otherwise, great.
Cable TV system is horrible, like most are (and have been for 10 years-why can't they buy into new technology?). So used to a "guide" feature, where you can scan thru all channels and actually see what's on, rather than flipping, channel-by-channel. This old system is time-consuming, when you may only want to watch for 20 minutes prior to retiring.
Commons areas nice, everything pretty clean. Conventient Machine Shed restaurant for our meetings.

Our family of four stayed here for one evening and found it it to be a step above many recent Holiday Inn experiences. Front staff was friendly, nice pool and hot tub and it was convenient to many restaurants. Room was clean, quiet and comfortable. Overall, a good choice for what we needed without all of the bells and whistles.

Definitely not what I expected when I discovered I'd be staying in the Holiday Inn on a recent business trip. Not that there is anything wrong with the brand, you just don't expect it to have so much character and dare I say style. My room was quite large and very comfortable. Everything looked brand new and was exceptionally clean. The staff was friendly and competent. I can't say a single bad thing about this property.
If you are planning a meeting here your attendees will be more than happy with their rooms and the meeting space is very interesting. Definitely not the typical boring ballroom...lots of windows and lots of light.
If you are a business traveler you cannot go wrong here. It's not far from the airport, about 1/2 hour drive? If you're at all health conscious you'll want to skip eating at the shed as everything seems to be beige and fried (but good)...there's a shopping plaza across the street that has other options where you might have better luck with variety.

Room Tip: One of my colleagues had a room that opened onto the pool area. Others have said it's noisy ther...

Stayed here for a wedding. There was a block of rooms reserved for the many out of town guests. The rooms were very large, clean, and comfortable. You could not hear the noise of the shower while in the main room. The rooms that face the pool area can be noisy at times and smell like chlorine. I wish there had been some sort of continental breakfast offered as that would have made our morning so much more relaxing. The internet connection to the room was slow and bit spotty. Overall, the hotel was fine but for the price I think it could have been better.
