    I booked a room for 2 nights 3rd party, 2 adults and 2 kids. It would’ve been nice to have a poolside room for them. I’m not sure how to get one of those rooms for next time. Being next to an Airport, we heard no planes in our room. So that was a big kudos to Holiday Inn!

    Some areas were not well cleaned, such as the eating area at The Grill. We’d stay again if the occasion presented itself. Staff were courteous and engaging which was pleasant.

    I understood the hotel was walkover from the airport, but it’s a 10mon walk and not doable with luggage due to snow paths not cleared all the way. The hotel is good but I chose it due to quick transit and not what I expected.

    Hard beds, towel rack IN the shower, Couldn't close the door if sitting on the toilet. Did I mention the beds were HARD AS A ROCK. So hard I couldn't sleep. The refrigerator didn't get my pop cold overnight. No continental breakfast. The hallways smelled terrible.

    The hotel was nice and has a great layout for the convention that we attended. Our room was okay, I wish the bathroom would have been a little bit cleaner. Overall, it was a good stay.
