This hotel is clean, centrally located, affordable, and the room has a lovely view of the River. Best of all, Janell, the front desk manager is a gem: kind, helpful, genuine. A mensch. I would happily stay here again.

I've been to a lot of Holiday Inns in my past but the hospitality at this hotel, I'm putting at the top of my list. I was very impressed BEFORE I even walked in the door. I called the catering department and spoke to Patti Smith, who was able to answer all of my questions even though she was not...

After a small problem catching the shuttle from the airport to the hotel (caused by a failed dispatch) I arrived to find a hotel that was newly remodeled, clean and a staff that goes out of its way to please. My room was excellent. The food service and convention service was also really good. I would stay here again without...

We worked a convention at this hotel in April. When we checked in we discovered that the room we had reserved did NOT have a fridge or microwave. I didn't know that very few of the rooms on the 4th floor had them. I told the staff that I had brought two of my children with me on this trip...

I stayed here with my grown daughter for one night, in town to see a show at the auditorium theatre. Close proximity, less than five minute drive to our show. Walking distance to Blue Cross Arena and the dinosaur BBQ and overlooks the river. We had a very nice stay. Friendly staff, restaurant on site, with a bar. Food was...

Perfect hotel to stay at for sporting events at Blue Cross Arena or Frontier Field. Only negative which can be avoided is don't part in the smallish covered parking area. Every spot has a pillar on each side making it narrow and difficult to negotiate. Park in an outside spot and you'll be just fine.

Stayed on the fifth floor in a very clean up to date room. wifi was a little slow but other wise no complaints.Staff was very helpful all weekend. The hotel shuttle made it easy to get around the city.

Thank you to Mrs. Joan and Mr. Kremp, for accommodating me and my family while our power was out over the course of these last few days. Your hotel staff was amazing, patient and kind.

We stayed there since it was a 5 minute walk to Blue Cross Arena for a concert. Check in was very quick, but we did find out there was a $4.00 charge to park our car. No biggie- its the city. Our room faced the street and was very clean. After the concert and the quick walk, we got back...

Please don't let all the negative reviews steer you away from this hotel. I have stayed at the Doubletree and this Holiday Inn and they are very comparable in room size and furnishings. However, the Holiday Inn is more economical. It is a tad longer to get to Mayo via Skyway and Subway, but still accessible without ever going outside....
