I was in town for a conference at the Convention Center and wanted a little cheaper room, so I checked on the Holiday Inn. It is a short 2 blocks from the Convention Center and had the best service I have received in a long time. The rooms themselves were nothing special, but from check in to check out, the service was top-notch. They have an outside pool that is nice, but my total experience was perfect.
Check this hotel out if you are attending an event in Downtown. You are within walking distance of many great restaurants and shopping experiences.
