We stayed at this Holiday Inn for the second time in two years for the Florida/USC game yesterday. The last time was only for a short night when we were driving from Florida to Maryland and we only stayed for like 5 hours so I didn't feel like I had enough information to leave a review, but this time the hotel impressed us so much I felt I had to!
We arrived at the hotel on Friday and got checked in quickly, even though there were lots of people waiting to check in the two people working the front desk worked through the line quickly and still made us feel welcome and not rushed. It was nice! We also got a map of the bars and restraunts nearby and had a great dinner at "Blue Marlin".
Saturday was what we really came for and we made sure to get up and out to the football stadium early before the traffic! This is where we were really impressed by the hotel - jennifer at the front desk gave us a map to the stadium and showed us where would be cheapest to park and where the police would have the traffic blocked after the game - it was so helpful! We had a great time and loved all the local tips
We did have two small problems but they weren't crazy- we requested a late checkout today since we were tired fromt he game but we couldn't get one. We had lunch plans though so we just took our luggage with us instead. Also the room next to us was kind of loud after the game but everyone was having fun so it didn't really bother us! Great weekend overall!
