This Holiday Inn is nice, it is not a high-end hotel but holds the Holiday Inn name well. I stayed at both the downtown and airport plaza Holiday Inns. There is a HUGE difference between the two. The airport plaza is old and run down. They are renovating it now and it is long overdue. On the other hand, the downtown hotel is nice and has been updated. It is located on the river very close to the boardwalk and casinos. There are only a few things negative about the downtown hotel. First the river view is near railroad tracks so you hear the train horns, but if you ask you can get a room on the other side of the hotel. Second being downtown getting to the hotel can be cumbersome if traffic is heavy. Other than that it is a nice hotel to consider when staying in the area. They have a parking garage on the property and shopping is within walking distance.
