We are considering the Holiday Inn Mount Pleasant for a two night stay during October. The hotel gets good reviews and the rates are good but many say the location is not that great. We like to keep the use of taxis to a minimum however I have been reading the Carta web site and it appears that a Metro bus is available to both downtown and Shem Creek. It is just that no one else has mentioned the use of the bus so I am wondering if this is feasible. Shem Creek looks like a great place to enjoy happy hour after a day of sight seeing. Comments appreciated.
