A Great Place to Stay

Pros: Everything!
Cons: Nothing that I could see.
Location: The Ark Encounter and Creation Museum is nearby, which was our goal to visit. Also, we enjoyed the Krohn Botannical Gardens and the Levee Mall.
We were very impressed with the look of the hotel, as well as the management, friendliness, room, bed, bathroom, the beauty of the lobby, the workout room, the pool, and the restaurant. It's a fine touch and marketing skill to give discount coupons for the breakfast at the restaurant. We would definitely stay there again and recommend it to others.

Terrible service.

Arrived Friday August 19. Left Monday August 23. Were out of the room all day Saturday and Sunday. Came home after midnight both days with no room service. In fact no one cleaned the room or made the bed the whole time we were there. Front desk provided towels and soap when I asked the second night. No explanation. No offer of remuneration other than "points" but we aren't members, so nothing except gamey, wet, two day old towels. And no, we did not have a do not disturb sign on the door. Pretty shoddy for a Holiday Inn.

Nice hotel

The hotel was very clean and quiet. Only a couple of complaints; not enough towels and washcloths in the room (we had a room with 2 double beds and 3 occupants) There were only two towels and two washcloths in the bathroom. Power outlet in bathroom didn't work, and neither did coffee pot even after we plugged into another outlet. If we had stayed more than one night, I'm sure the staff would have taken care of it, but it wasn't worth the hassle for a one night stay. Bed was comfortable and they had 4 comfy pillows on each bed. It was very nice, clean, and quiet and I will stay there again if I am in the area.

Pros: It was close to the airport , very easy to find and considering the volume of people very quiet
Cons: Corrections to the issues above.
Location: No idea what is near by . We were in town for a Reds game
Our experience at this hotel had several pit falls. The electrical outlet in the bathroom did not work nor did the one the alarm clock was plugged into . We were able to check in early which was a plus but we not given the meal coupons for breakfast. The breakfast area was busy as would be typical on a weekend but VERY understaffed. We waited a long time to be seated , then finally just seated ourselves. After going to the front desk to get coupons for the meal , we proceeded to the breakfast bar. There were no plates so small dessert plates had to be used. There was very little food on the bar. Again those working were doing their best but they were very understaffed .

Great Location

Pros: Free Internet, Quiet
I have used this hotel before and knew it was a good choice. They didn't disappoint. The rooms were clean and the staff was friendly and access to the freeway was great. The best was that it is located across the freeway from my brother!
