We really enjoyed the hotel.
The rooms were clean, the staff was super friendly, and although we didn't get a chance to use the pool area.. it seemed nice.
Technically this isn't downtown, but the name seperates it from the OTHER Holiday Inn that is closer to the Biltmore.
As much as you think you like downtown, I don't know that I would want to stay *too* close to downtown only because I like a little peace, quiet and downtime. I'm getting older and not too much of a party animal anymore :) so the distance really didn't bother me. And this IS a college town.. the weekends do get a little hectic.
The one night we did decide to stay out late and get our drink on, we caught a cab to and from downtown. At only $9 one way, it was a good deal.
