This is the second time I stayed at this Holiday Inn, the room is spacious but the facility is getting old and needs remodeling very very soon. Some of the receptionists need further training so they can assist guests more professionally. Also, they should pay attention on providing more English newspaper despite the increase of Chinese speaking guests, as it...

The staff is what makes this hotel. Upon arrival, we discovered that housekeeping had turned on the heat in our room and left it blowing for hours. It...

I don't normally review chain hotels, but this one was worth it. This Holiday Inn was reasonably priced for one weekend night when I had an early morning flight out of SFO.

I'm a Platinum member so it normally pays to stick with the brand .Not this time. No upgrade. Not even any effort to do so. If you have any need to use the internet for work or otherwise, do NOT stay here. It is painfully slow. The fact that the hotel has not bothered to improve this demonstrates its lack...
