I got to the hotel extremely late the night of check-in, but the staff were very nice and accommodating. The room was clean and well-decorated. Despite being 'away from it all', the decor was more modern than many other Holiday Inns. This hotel is close to the aquarium. Even being stuck in traffic (which was weird), it took me 23 minutes to get to the aquarium from this hotel. Great location. The usual, warm, lovely breakfast as always. If you aren't a priority club member, you should be. I will definitely stay here again when I am in the area.
Stayed at this hotel the last 2 nights as a part of a family gathering while one member of the family was attending to some business. At the time of making the reservations, we reserved 3 rooms for ourselves and 2 other couples and held the reservations with my credit card. Upon checking in at different times, each couple stated they would be paying with their own credit card and we were told this would not be a problem. Our credit cards were scanned for each room. Upon leaving this morning, we were told the individual credit cards could not be used and all three rooms would have to be placed on my credit card! We were told by a heavy set man, wearing glasses in his 20's or 30's that he was told by the management he 'could not touch the account to make the corrections and I was told this by my manager.' We were told the credit cards that were scanned on our arrival was for 'incidentals.' This man told us he 'was the manager on duty this morning,' but he couldn't touch our accounts to make the necessary changes?! Was he the manager Or Not? Our family member wanted to place his room charges on his business credit card as he expected to do while doing a business trip/family gathering. He was unable to do this! Other hotels are able to accomplish this simple feat, but apparently NOT this one. We would like to thank the young black haired man for his work in the breakfast area. The area was kept spotless. Maybe he should be the manager at the desk instead of the one that was on duty this morning. Also only one couple received a printed receipt, myself and the other couple Did Not Receive a Receipt for the room charges which will be billed to My Account!! :( This was inconsiderate especially since one couple of the 3 couples spent 3 nights vs 2 nights that the rest of us did. I will think again before making any reservations at the Holiday Inn Express or recommending it to others if management cannot work with the customer to properly bill for their rooms. We were in room...
We enjoyed our stay out of the city- it is about a 10-15 minute drive downtown. The hotel was great, especially the breakfast. The pillows, however, are horrible. Bring your own and your stay will be great!
The staff was nice and helpful. The room was great. We had a wonderful time.
2 people for La. met up with 2 people from Ky. for a weekend getaway over the 4th of July. This was a GREAT location - TERRIFIC staff - CLEAN ROOMS! Several people on the staff assisted us with places to go eat, things to see and do. Shared coupons with us. Even though we checked in late - they were very helpful. We will definitely stay here again if we get the chance!! Everyone was very nice and we felt very safe here. Clean Rooms-+++that it was nonsmoking-had no issue with smells. Husbands enjoyed the pool.
We had a prepaid reservation. A terrible idea because even though we had paid for double beds the maids had not cleaned the rooms and all that was left at 9pm was a king sized bed with a pull out couch that was more uncomfortable that my grandmas from the 70's. My children and I slept on the bed and my poor husband took the couch. X at the front desk didn't seem to care, Holiday Inn customer service said that they don't guarantee rooms, and the room was directly across from the only elevator which had the loudest ding in the world. I finally got a call from the manager to request my money back but since it was prepaid, it was a huge problem. I'm done with booking on line and Holiday Inn.
We enjoyed the indoor swimming pool & hot tub. The pool was very warm! This hotel was clean and had a descent breakfast. The hotel staff was very friendly.
We had a fantastic stay. The rooms were so clean (and I travel with my Clorox wipes), the decor was very modern, and the breakfast was fresh, readily stocked and a great variety. The pool was clean, warm and a big hit with my kids. The area is safe and centrally located to downtown, and Hamilton Place shopping. There are plenty of restaurants, drugstores, groceries and a wine and spirits store very close by. The staff was very friendly and efficient. They gave us directions, attraction suggestions and spoke to my children, and us directly whenever they saw us. The digital thermostat was very handy; the fridge took awhile to cool off so turn it down as soon as you get there if you plan to use it. Decent size microwave and coffee maker. No shortage of towels or toiletries. We will stay there again, much safe than other areas we saw online and then saw in person.
We just got back from staying at this hotel. This was a great place for my family. The pool was nice, as was the hot tub. The rooms were cleaned everyday be room service, and the breakfast was great for the kids. I will definitely stay here again!
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The staff were very helpful. The room and all areas were very clean. The breakfast/lobby was great. The workout room will meet any travelers needs. The hot tub/pool is nice. [Pool water temp was the same as the hot tub--very warm--so this is a plus/minus.] Our kids loved the stay. The room decor is modern and nice. The bed was the BEST hotel bed I've experienced. You won't be far from any type of food and not far from all attractions. If you are a shooter, there is an indoor range just next door. If you need a bottle of wine, that is also next door. The area of town at first appeared sketchy, but Chattanooga is very nice. It improved in the daylight. We average 2 stays on the road per year. We give this our highest recommendation. The room was nicer than several condos in Florida over the years. The price tag was around * (with taxes). Not an altogether bad thing in that the stay was pleasant and the clientele was business class. From the map, note that the facility is off of 153 (not 75). Also note that Chattanooga is EST (the pool closed an hour earlier than we thought.) Be sure and see the Aquarium--well worth the trip and I'm not a Zoo person.
loved our room. the staff was very personable. the breakfast bar was fabulous. our great stay made us book another one up the road hoping for it to be just like this one! One drawback was not being able to see it from the road. we missed it several times!
There were some nice amenities in our room, chiefly involving the choice of tempered glass for the bathroom vanity and microwave/fridge area in the main room. The large vanity was espresso colored wood with the thick tempered glass top and a high end tap that came from the wall, making for a nice bathroom overall. The much vaunted Holiday Inn showerhead was a disappointment though, with insufficient water flow to rinse out shampoo as quickly as at home. Additionally, the mechanism to switch water flow from the tap to the shower is tricky, and involves pulling a part of the faucet (a ring that looks just like the normal faucet aerator) down. The fridge and microwave were decent and clean, as were the bath and bed linens (nice thick towels, and there were enough for the three of us, based on our reservation info w/o asking). One sour note was the use of ''twist'' compact fluorescent bulbs in the bath in an application where the bulb is visible. They make a different sort of CFL for visible applications for a reason - the twists are ugly. The carpet also needed to be steam cleaned. There were some visible stains. The WiFi connection was so spotty it was almost useless. We had to go ask for a CAT5 cable to hook up directly - and even then the connection dropped quite a bit. Lastly, give the breakfast bar coffee a miss. Unless you like your coffee weak it will just disappoint. For the prices in the area, and the amenities offered, I would recommend the hotel overall.
