We stayed at this Holiday Inn using points for two nights. The location of this hotel is terrific within about a 5 minute walk from St. Armand's Circle. Considering how difficult it is to park anywhere near St. Armand's Circle or the beach on the weekends, being able to park at the hotel and walk was nice. The hotel is located directly across a two lane road from Lido Beach. The road isn't very busy and is easy to cross. Lido is relatively quiet compared to some other beaches along the west coast especially on weekdays. The hotel provides free beach chairs and towels to take out to the beach (first come, first serve). It's a nice extra. We were upgraded to a gulf front room upon our arrival. The room is a decent size and includes a 27" TV, table and chairs, coffee maker. No refrigerator in the room. There are some plastic chairs on the balcony which is a nice spot to enjoy the sunset. Housekeeping was very good. Room decor wasn't anything upscale, but appropriate for the setting. Free high speed internet service is included. I would stay here again.
