Stayed here while attending a conference at the full service crowne plaza next door.
We stay in HIE properties quite a bit. This one had all the normal items, but the entire place felt rather "tired." It appeared like it had been retrofitted at some point in time, which if not done well, shows. The ceiling in the bathroom was about 6'6" high, so something must have been added after the hotel was built. The counter in the bathroom was the older style, not that this makes a lot of difference.
Breakfast appeared to be the standard HIE fare, although I ate at my convention, so did not partake.
The route from this property to the full service crowne plaza next door was interesting. Basically you go through a back door down a gloomy hallway past the areas where they store tables, and convention center items. These two properties are almost certainly owned or managed by the same group, so I was surprised they didn't have this figured out better.
I would stay here again, but wouldn't want to if I was trying to make an impression on someone.
