The location is not exactly the Historic District, though King Street is a block away....but King Street goes a long way down to the revered Historic District and water. We relied on Uber, though multiple drivers insisted that our hotel was the hotel on the next block behind the Holiday Inn. The place seemed short handed with staff doubling up on duties, forgetting simple details, distractions. Towels at pool were kept fresh. Read less

Very sketchy area. We were three ladies and there was a gas station/convenience store across the street which had a lot of odd characters hanging around. The free shuttle bus stopped right there and even the hotel recommended we walk three blocks to the Visitors center to ride the shuttle. Hotel was clean and the breakfast was good.

4-1/2 stars? You jest? Let’s start with our asking when we booked if this hotel is in middle of downtown? “Yes, a few blocks from everting.” BS! Needed an Uber to get anywhere. Rooms were run down looking. My friends’ room was not made up until 5:00. They had to sit around while the room was quickly made up. Lousy job. Messed up our… Read more
4-1/2 stars? You jest? Let’s start with our asking when we booked if this hotel is in middle of downtown? “Yes, a few blocks from everting.” BS! Needed an Uber to get anywhere. Rooms were run down looking. My friends’ room was not made up until 5:00. They had to sit around while the room was quickly made up. Lousy job. Messed up our dinner plans. The first room we had (and then checked out of) was dusty, musty and should’ve been on the ghost tour. Really loved the shower doors that kept falling off the rails. IHG - of which we are members— should cross this place off their list. Lousy customer service. Two words: go elsewhere. Another two: stay away. Read less

Traveling with out 96 year old mom it is very difficult to find hotels with adjoining rooms. This hotel was so accommodating and understanding. And let me tell you we called many hotels. This hotel is spotless. Rooms are very large and very clean. Restaurant was also spotless and the employees were so friendly and pleasant to talk to. Food was very fresh. No wilted fruit. Front counter was also polite friendly and helpful. Would definitely recommend this hotel and restaurant. Also have to say the city itself is one of the cleanest we have visited. You didn’t even see a cigarette butt on the ground and definitely one of the most friendly. Read less
