I and my fellow chaperones looked after 14 teenagers in this hotel while we were in town for the Thespian Festival. They gave us a great government rate and even offered the buffet breakfast every morning. The breakfast was nothing to write home about, but the sweetest lady named Patty served us wonderful "mini-omellettes", which are really regular sized omelletes and not the ridiculously-sized six-egg variety you get in some of the chain restaurants. The hotel is very clean, relatively new, and right in the heart of the beautiful downtown Haymarket neighborhood. I have also stayed at the Embassy Suites up the road, and while it is roomier and the breakfast is more made-to-order, it would have cost twice what we paid at the Holiday Inn. The desk staff is friendly and responsive, and housekeeping is conscientious. Most important to me, the hotel is very quiet, and well soundproofed. For the money, it's a great value. Special kudos to the staff of the Red Onion, the attached restaurant that served our students and me breakfast every morning. They were kind, remembered the kids' names, and made a special effort to help us feel welcome.
