We did not stay at the Holiday Inn, instead spending the night 50 yards away in the Hampton Inn. When getting ready to go out for dinner, we asked the desk clerk for a good place to eat and she said "just walk across the street to the Holiday Inn restaurant". Feeling a little uneasy, we figured why not give it a shot and if the menu looked blah, we could leave right away.
Looking at the entrance to the dining room of the Holiday Inn, we were immediately greeted by a young hostess who quickly seated us. she was very pleasant and we learned her accent was Russian, as she was a recent immigrant. Up came to the table a young lady with a million dollar smile and attitude named Kylelin. Yup, her parents had expected a boy. She told us about the various specials and made a point to tell us Happy Hour had just begun and why not try the house wine for only $2. Throwing caution to the wind once again, we tried the Cabernet and were very pleased with it's smoothness and dryness.
My wife had a steak salad and I had a grilled shrimp and caesar salad and both were delicious. Kylelin was at our side many times to check on us with a glowing smile and ensured our glasses were full of wine as well. I must have told my wife a half dozen times how she really made our meal experience so nice.
In short, a totally pleasant combination of service, atmosphere, price, and food, made even more enjoyable by a delightful server. It is unusual to praise a chain hotel's restaurant, but the positive experience was such a nice surprise that I felt I owed it to the place.
