Guests of Holiday Inn at The Plaza enjoy close access -- a short walk or complimentary shuttle ride -- to the city's premier 15-block dining, shopping, and entertainment district, Country Club Plaza. Culture beckons from around the corner at two outstanding art museums, and the hotel is convenient to myriad attractions and downtown nightlife. Families appreciate the connecting rooms, free dining for children, and extra large pool with a shallow end. Pets are also welcome (fees apply).

Dining

Kids eat for free at the Main Street Grill restaurant, located off the lobby and serving breakfast and dinner daily and lunch on Saturdays only. American cuisine ranges from fine aged steaks to specialty sandwiches and salads. Room Service delivers from 6:30 a.m. to 10:30 p.m. The Main Street Lounge offers beer, wine, and cocktails.

Rooms

Choose from king rooms, suites, or the Executive Club Level. All rooms include a desk with ample workspace, lamp, desk-level electrical outlets, and complimentary Wi-Fi and local telephone calls. For in-room entertainment, enjoy pay-per-view and premium cable movies or the DVD player. Executive Club Level guest quarters are larger, and free morning newspapers are delivered to rooms. Seven of the hotel's 241 rooms accommodate handicapped or physically challenged guests.

Property features

The lively Country Club Plaza, with its busy calendar of music and special events and dozens of dining and leisure options, is a major attraction for guests, but the hotel offers distractions of its own, beginning with a super-large heated outdoor pool. Exercise enthusiasts work out on universal, treadmill, stair stepper, and elliptical equipment in the small on-site Health and Fitness Center. For guests with small children or on a longer stay, the Guest Self-Laundry includes a washer and dryer. Internet access is free in public areas.

Disappointed at first step in room

My best friend and I have talked about this trip for a year. Just a weekend away from all the daily stresses. We were able to check in early, which was great. However, we were in a smoking room and it smelled terrible as soon as we opened the door. I've stayed at other hotels in smoking rooms and you couldn't even tell. This was overwhelmingly smokey. Floors were dirty. The coffee supplied in the little packages tasted old. Went for ice and the machine was broken and the sign said they were broken on the first 3 (of 5)floors. The pop machine didn't have any diet coke and didn't on the first 3 (of 5)floors. The elevator smelled stale and musty so we took the stairs for most of the stay. The hostess/bartender in the restaurant was unfriendly and short with her answers to our questions. The waitress, however, was great! and the meal was fantastic! Kudos to [...] and the chef!!! They are the ONLY things that made this stay bearable.

Great Hotel/Great Price

The Holiday Inn at the Plaza was a great hotel. The price was good, the beds were comfy, and the staff was friendly. The location was very close to the plaza, just about a block up the hill. Very convenient. I would highly recommend this hotel to others.

Shopping tip: Short walk from hotel

There was wonderful shopping and great restaurants only a block away. There is also a lovely park with a beautiful fountain, artwork, and a walking trail. A great place to exercise or just relax.
