The staff is friendly and the rooms are clean. The location is conveniently located near the campus and downtown. Market Square is a ten minute walk. We usually try to stay here during football season. They offer a late night buffet after games.

The location was great and the staff was very accommodating, warm and friendly. Walkable distance to Market Square but we took a free shuttle due to impending thunderstorm. Wasn't as up to date as I usually see in a Holiday Inn, but it was clean. Just remember to add in the parking fees when comparing hotel prices and they charge...

Family stopped for an overnight on our way down to Charleston SC. This Holiday Inn was clean with ample sized room and a very accommodating front desk. Our 10th Floor room had a nice view of the World's Fair Park ... outstanding location (5 minute walk to Market Square)

The hotel is your standard Holiday Inn, but just a couple blocks from the cute downtown area. We were greeted warmly by reception, even with the chaos of loud people checking in for a Cornhole Tournament(hilarious:). We asked for a quiet room in the almost full hotel , the room was great and the bed super comfy. The only downside...
