Just checked in at the hotel.
The hotel is located next to a busy road where all other motels and hotels are located. The view from the room is a parking lot. The swimming pool is outdoors next to the parking lot, front entrance and the busy road - guess it depends from which angle you take the picture.
I am a Platinum member and one of the perks of traveling a lot while staying in the same hotel chain are the room upgrades. Of course they are subject to availability.
At check-in the clerk stunned me: "at this hotel we don't do upgrades. we are independently owned". I know IHG / Holiday Inn is a franchise. But not respecting a loyalty program to the most loyal guests is stunning. What's the purpose of being part of a chain then? This should be reported to IHG.
