Walking to the door i was under the impression the hotel was still under major construction due to all of the renovation. We were looking forward to pool time but the pool was closed because of renovations.. bummer and my allergies went crazy from the renovation. If I would of known all this i would of booked some where else.

I stay at Holiday Inn every week and in general they are all very good. The reception of this hotel is going through a MAJOR renovation, all the area is covered with dust, very noisy and my arrival was a very disagreeable experience. The staff was very friendly although with all the noise it was very hard to hear them!...
