The lobby is huge, clean and impressive! I arrived 10 minutes early before check - in time. Marla at the front desk was really hospitable and resourceful from the time I arrived until I left. She checked me in and signed me up for their bonus card which I had no idea Holiday Inn had. I went to my room, house keeping was still cleaning it but it was totally okay because "I" was early.
My room surpassed my expectations. My phone rang instantly and it was Marla calling to apologize for me going up and my room was still being cleaned. I was so impressed with their need to go above and beyond in making sure you receive top, quality hospitality.
The hotel is close to a gigantic mall and smaller plazas. Marla gave me directions to Walmart when I inquired about the nearest one. The internet in your room is FREE! The TV is flat screen and the channels are endless and varied.
I loved the bathtub a lot because I usually stay away from taking a bath in hotels but NOT this one. I also stay away from sleeping under the covers due to bed bugs but NOT this time or at this hotel. The bed was extremely comfortable and I found it hard for me to get up for the day. I also found it hard to check-out (lol)!
The continental breakfast was nice - if you can wake up early enough to grab you a bite. The work-out room was perfect for "me" if you are into cardio ONLY. There are no weights, just a bike and 3 treadmills. I wanted to try the pool but did not have time.
The service at this hotel is high quality. Every one speaks and I constantly saw housekeeping stocking this or that through out the hotel. I mean, I could not believe how much I enjoyed my stay. Bottom line, I am dying to get back ASAP! Since I left my phone charger, I guess I'll have to go back and get it :)
