Below are the verified reviews from guests that we have booked recently:
"Wonderful"
Overall Score5.0/ 5
The guest services and customer service was excellent as soon as I walked in, they explained how the information for booking the room from a hotel planner was not the same information I was told for holiday Inn, I do appreciate them trying to accommodate me.
