“Booked as Priority Platinum”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 28, 2012

Did a last minute booking -- through Priority Club app at around 8 PM on 25 December, due to a relative being checked in the hospital at Gundersen Lutheran. Actually checked in around 1 AM in the morning on 26 December, into the suite we reserved, and checked out by 8 or 9 AM. Everything was adequate, but we were probably too bleary-eyed to notice. One note -- in most Intercontinental Properties, I am greeted for my Platinum status -- I certainly did not need to worry about being embarrassed -- none of this nonsense in recognizing my loyalty to ICH for my 75+ nights of stays -- appeared we were REALLY inconveniencing the gentleman attending the desk by checking in that night. I am so sorry -- I promise it will be VERY unlikely for me to darken the doorstep of this establishment again... Hope all others have a positive experience in the future! From previous reviews -- this may be a challenge due to some on this hospitality staff.

First off had to pay to park, second the staff was rude and let me stand there for several minutes before I was acknowledged. Room had a good view of the downtown area and convention center. That is about all the positives besides the location to downtown. I actually went to the Radisson across the street to eat and work because the internet was terrible and figured if their hotel looked like that then the food was probably going to be poor and over priced as well. Was happy to get out of there and will find a better place for cheaper next time for sure as it is ranked 15 out of 16 so I am sure you can find a better place for same cost or better.

i stayed in this hotel twice , and thought the first bad experience was just a fluke, as the bedroom had about actual 1/8in of dust and fuzz behind everything that requires moving to clean including about a 1/4in under the bed and i should have but didnt say anything . I thought well they have some lazy cleaning people , but what i found on my second stay was a problem that went all the way to the general manager, this is where i got corporate involved. Corp has a program where they make a case and follow up on it, At my second stay (this is a assumption not fact) i believe we accidently got a room where pornographic filming or acts were commonly occurring , due to the some kind of human fluids driping down the wall above the bed in about 8 places and aged enough to have turned a sickening yellowish brown , the room itself had black mold on the walls in 4 places and a huge deposit behind the tv stand and on the carpet in about a 5 foot area , the sheets had two tear holes in them one 2in and one 3 in , . now i realize this is almost beyond belief, and this is why i have all this documented in photos which i can send you if you would like. The location is downtown but if you decide to stay at this hotel, all i can say is you were warned, the management was all excuses and no offer for money back or anything , all i can say is ewwww sickening ...

We have stayed at this property twice in the last year and a half, once to view the fireworks in 2011 and once early this summer. As other reviews have mentioned, the rooms are a bit dated. However, on both occasions, the rooms were clean and we enjoyed the river view a great deal. In addition, the rooms are large with a living area and bedroom. The beds were comfortable, and the internet was fast enough to allow us to stream video without interruption. The restaurant onsite had great pizza, the kids eat free, and breakfast the following morning was very good. When we checked out, my mother, who had left earlier, called to say she thought she had forgotten something in her room. When I asked at the front desk, one of the managers literally ran up to check the room. She returned empty handed, and I realized, to my embarrassment, that I had given her my room number rather than my parents. She returned in a few moments with the item and a smile on her face. The item was not worth a great deal, but she had treated it with care and invested extra effort. I really appreciated this.

Stayed here for two nights at the end of October while attending a conference in the convention center across the street. I was a bit concerned after reading the other reviews - but my stay at this hotel was just fine.

I had a king room on the second floor. Apparently this is not one of the floors that has been renovated. But I found the room to be clean and no more "shabby" than many other hotels I have stayed in. The bed was very comfortable and the linens were fine.

I am a priority club member and was given coupons for "buy one get one free" drinks at the restaurant connected to the hotel. They did not have a complimentary breakfast. I did have special pricing for the room - due to the convention.

The parking lot in front of the hotel is very small. Additional parking is available in the structure next door. They do charge 3 dollars a day for parking.

I would not hesitate to stay here again if in the area.

The room was clean and the beds were comfortable. That being said the room(s) are in need of some TLC--furniture is chipped and scratched and the bathroom sink the porcelain is coming off and wallpaper is peeling. I think the hotel is way overpriced and would look somewhere else nxt time.

Other reviewers indicated that the rooms were dirty. I stayed there in August 2012 and no one in our group of 10 had this problem. So, kudos to the hotel for improving in this area. But, they have a way to go. Our room had not been remodeled yet as some in our group had been. We had peeling wallpaper and very worn bathroom fixtures. Once their renovation is complete, the rooms will be fine although dark and cave-like. But, I'd still just give the hotel an average at that point. If you can get a reservation somewhere else near this location do it.
