Due to flight delays we missed our connection and had to stay overnight near the airport. The airline gave us a number to call for a delayed trip discount and we got a very good rate.
The free shuttle arrived within 10 minutes of our call (it was posssibly already on the way as there was another customer wating). There are a number of Holiday Inns near the airport, so make sure you know which one you are going to.
Check in was smooth and fast.
We called reception to ask for some additional coffee and sugar and it was deliverd to our room within minutes.
The room was typical Holiday Inn - large, clean and well equipped. The bathroom had a new top of the counter sink which was at odds with the holes in the tile floor and the discoloured grout. This is the only time I have encountered such a problem at a Holiday Inn, and the manager seemed quite surprised when I mentioned it at checkout. It was not serious enough for us to bother changing rooms, but it took away from the overall quality of the accommodation.
The hotel features an indoor pool courtyard which could be quite noisy if your room overlooked the atrium. There were lots of children playing in the pool. The restaurant is also right there, and the whole area was noisy and smelled strongly of chlorine.
Our room was well removed from the pool and very quiet although it is a long walk from reception.
We booked the airport shuttle for 6:25am and it left right on time. We had asked for a wakeup call, which came on time, and we also got a followup call about 15 minutes before the shuttle left.
We were looking for a clean, comfortable, reasonably priced hotel with efficient, complimetary airport service and that is exactly what we got.
