IF YOU ARE SENSITIVE TO ODORS OF ANY TYPE....STAY AWAY. This hotel went all out on plush, modern lobby and upbeat room decor. Very cosmopolitan feel when entering. However, rooms are highly fragranced. Checked in after 5 pm, walked into room and smelled like Febreeze was used on everything--carpets, bed, all surfaces. Windows did not open--not even a crack--so unable to let in some fresh air. Girl at front desk's response: " Yeah, if you are sensitive to any type of smells, this is definitely not the hotel to stay at". Spoke with manager to get credit card charge reversed and she said the scents were just part of the cleaning process. With a non-smoking hotel that is 3 years old, you have to wonder what they are trying to cover up.
Even after getting into my car, the scent was in my hair and on my lips--no exaggeration.
Get with the times Holiday Inn: With all your attempts at re-branding to a higher standard atleast set aside a few rooms (like other hotels do) that refrain from using fragrances.
