Buyer Beware ! !
The Holiday Inn marque didnt hold up so well this time.
The majoriity of the desk staff needed more training on Customer Service.
We found only 1 ice maker on the ground floor.
It had what I would call 18 oz cups for your
We were seniors and my friend with a knee handicap,and stayed on the 4th floor.
Room was small and no closets or dresser drawers.
We were there for 6 days.What was there appeared to be a an open Media Center against the wall with nothing but offset shelves!!! (better not be taking your woman !) ...that was absurd.
It was an attic room...basically a closet, with one window that appeared non-opening until we had to go down and ask them to open it.
We certainly wont stay there again, nor recommend and will review any Holiday Inn very carefully, if at all.
