This hotel was pretty basic. The breakfast, service, staff were all above average. Good enough for the price. I might look for a better option next time around. Having said that I would give a three on five.

i would only stay here if I were going to the Excel energy center....it is clean, and close. That's it....not much else impressed me. The lobby and the restaurant are in need of updating, but you certainly can't beat the location.

The hotel staff was friendly and helpful. We were initially put in a room next to the ice machine but we were quickly given a better room when we asked. Clean, quiet and comfortable. The pool was closed for repair, which was disappointing. Great location near the Xcel Center.

I usually find that with a holiday inn, you know what you are getting for the price paid. This holiday inn was definitely a small step up from the usual ones. Staff were very friendly and across the street there are some great bars and restaurants.
