The staff was very warm and welcomng!

Pros: Free breakfast, Close restaurants, Free Internet, Quiet
The Hotel was Gorgous! The stafff was very warm, welcoming and accomadating. our suite was beautifully located and white-glove clean! Breakfast was always early adn on time. And they always kept snacks, drinks and cold items available through out the day and night! Which was great since my child and I both need to eat every 2-4hrs. The restaurants were located close by for comfort, and delivery was certainly fast! I can't wait to stay at another Holiday Inn and Suites! They are worth the money, and there is alot of comfort to be had by staying here! I absolutely adored the indoor swimming pool! Especially since the weather outside wasn't conducive for pool weather! The beds were just a little firm. 98% Satisfaction from this Holiday Inn and Suites visitor!

Loved staying here. The price, location, breakfast, cleanilness, and staff was one of the best hotels we've stayed at. The lobby was great to come back and have a cup of tea in front of the fireplace and have a cozy conversation. The indoor heated pool was fun, only thing is the temperature on the hot tub was way too hot. The breakfast had all the normal cereals, muffins, toast, muffins, fresh fruit, yogurt, milk, juice and so on... but they also had either scrambled eggs or mini omletes, biscuits & gravy and a either sauasge or bacon. Overall it was a great experience nad we'll staying there again in December 2011.

The hotel was in a small town but surrounded by all the amenities I needed and close to everywhere I wanted to go. The service was friendly, the room was clean, the breakfast was great and we even had internet access and print access. I had a chance to work out in the gym and at night, the sliding entry doors don't open without a hotel room access key or the hotel staff opening the door for you.

Pleasant Place to Stay

My husband and I enjoyed the stay here. Everything was very clean, the front desk staff were very pleasant and accommodating. The hotel is definitely close to TONS of shopping and dining experiences. Because it is located close to our family in the northern suburbs, it's a great place for us to stay when we go up for a long weekend.
