Expert Reviews of Holiday Inn Golden Gateway

Our expert hotel planners periodically visit and review the hotels we represent in person. This is the most recent visit:
"Excellent Value Hotel - Not your typical Holiday Inn!"
Overall Score5.0/ 5
This Holiday Inn provides excellent value accommodations in a nice, residential part of the city. This property, while under the Holiday Inn flag, is NOT your typical Holiday Inn. Unlike the other, simple, two floor properties that are common of this brand, this Holiday Inn is a stylish, 26 floor hotel with a ton of meeting space and an outdoor rooftop pool. I was especially impressed with the sleeping rooms, which look like they could belong in a trendy 4 star hotel, rather than a Holiday Inn. The hotel's location is central, and accessible to all major tourist attractions, but it is not right in the thick of them. Instead, it is located in a nice neighborhood, right next to these local hotspots. So, the area immediately surrounding the hotel is a pleasant place to walk around and shop (not touristy like Union Square or edgy like downtown). You also have the benefit of excellent views from every room, since there are no other large buildings obstructing your view. The hotel also has several large, flexible spaces for events as well as an on-site restaurant. Currently, the spaces and restaurant are very basic, but should make a stylish transformation to match the sleeping rooms after the current renovations. I recommend this hotel as it provides excellent value for the price all year, and is an easy and spacious option for any group.
