Front desk staff was very friendly and efficient, club status was recognized. Room was at the end of a very very long hallway and as a female traveling alone that made me a bit uncomfortable. I would request a room closer to the elevator if I stayed again. Carpet was dingy and needs replacing. Adequate desk and small table in...

Stayed from the 11-13. Had a great experience all around. IHG status recognized by front desk staff, Juan at the bar provided excellent service while we watched the game. Not too pricey for a hotel bar. Room was cleaned while we were out next day. Only negatives would be no alcohol during the day, but plenty of local places. Photo...

Great location and secure area but, after staying a few times at this hotel, I can definitely say that every room I stayed at this location the AC unit blows a weird smell.im I'm not sure if it needs new or better air filter making the room overall with too much humidity.

Stayed there 3 nights for business in January 2016. The hotel is old and rooms were outdated, only basic amenities available. Location isn't great either, you definitely need a car. Staff was really friendly but I would definitely think twice choosing this hotel.

The room was comfortable but the hotel is of a much lower standard than uk Holiday Inns. The lobby area was poor. I asked for a change from the first allocated room which was at the end of an extremely long corridor, because it smelt of urine. The second room was odour free and comfortable. I ordered a steak salad...

Even though I arrived at 4 pm, my room still wasn't ready, so they put me in one on a lower floor closer to the street traffic, alas.

We stayed here because of its proximity to Nicklaus Children's Hospital. One night was enough. I'd never stay if I was going on a vacation. Not great part of town. Worried about our car in the open parking lot. Not filthy, but not clean. It was one of those places where I wished we'd had sleeping bags. Never interacted with...

Just checked in this evening and had a great reception. Eddie and Michelle made me feel really welcome and took care of any concerns and my "1000" questions. Also apprecited (since I checked in late) that the lounge was open a little late so I could go unwind for a moment before retiring for the evening. Well done!
