Reviewed yesterday NEW

My experience started out pretty rough, as I mistakenly bought 2 rooms in different locations (make sure you know where you are booking). Once I got to a reservations manager through IHG and they flagged my reservation, all went well. Christina at the front desk was amazing!! She went out of her way to make me smile. Thank you!! Made...

They 'upgraded' us to a suite, which looked out to the marina, on the second floor of one of the older buildings. The suite had two room. The second room was very grubby with heaps of carpet stains and marks on the furniture. It had a distinct smell of dope smoke, which may have been coming from an adjoining room....

We really enjoyed our stay here. The shuttle picked us up from our cruise very quickly. The bar was great as well as a wonderful breakfast in the cafe. Not usual hotel food. I can't say enough about the service - shuttle took us to the hop on trolley and then to airport. The drivers really cared about our convenience!...

Reception staff were extremely helpful with any questions. Rooms were normal with two double beds, coffee maker, flat screen TV and good hot water in spacious bathroom area. Breakfast discount coupons were handy. Good area down near one of the marina's, with plenty of places to eat.

Have stayed at this hotel several times in the past, the last two were in the newer tower where reception is. This time I was “upgraded” to a room in the older building with a view of the parking lot. Walls were scuffed and not clean. Restaurant was not open so food service, same menu, was at the bar.

This is a standard Holiday Inn with ready access to the waterfront. The accommodations were typical albeit somewhat dated. The room is comfortable and I liked having an exhaust fan in the bathroom - keep the steam out of the room! I was disappointed that they did not have coffee in the lobby, however there were pods and coffee makers...
