This Holiday Inn is proof that the chain is working to improve its facilities. Unlike a couple of hotels in this chain that I've stayed in over the last couple of years, this Eagan inn is upgrading and sprucing up.
The lobby, while not large is attractive, and there is an adjoining sitting area that is very inviting. The rooms are updated with granite counter tops in the bathroom, new bedding, and a bright, airy feel. Note that the rooms with two beds do not have an easy chair, only the desk chair.
The dining room and bar are comfortable and roomy. If you book with a 3rd party such as Hotwire, breakfast is not included in your stay. However, the breakfast buffet is $10.99 (and includes coffee, a $2.00 charge if you don't get the buffet) and is better than most free breakfasts at other hotels.
My only issues were with the overcrowded parking lot and the slow elevators....both a result of the convenience and popularity of this hotel. And note that if you want two beds, you must check in early as they seem to be in short supply.More
