Our Hotel Planner Expert Reviews of Holiday Inn Research Park

Our expert hotel planners periodically visit and review the hotels we represent in person.
"Group Friendly Hotel with all the amenities."
Overall Score4.5/ 5
The Holiday Inn Research Park is truly a one stop shop for your group. This 200 room property has over 140 rooms that will accommodate four people. Micro/fridge/coffee maker in every room for convenience. The hotel is very easy to get to and once you are there you don't have to leave. 5000 sq feet of flexible meeting space, full service restaurant (with Karaoke!), indoor pool area, outdoor pool area and fitness center (plus access to Powerhouse Gym across the street) to keep your group happy. The free shuttle takes the cake. Utilize the shuttle which travels up to 10 miles to get your group to A and M, UAH, to and from the Airport and literally 50 restaurants and stores nearby for FREE.

"Great Experience!"
Overall Score4.0/ 5
Great staff, clean facilities and a great overall experience! My only complaint would be not enough towels at the pool and the air conditioning units are a tad loud.

Hello Jessica! Thank you so much for your feedback! We are glad that you all enjoyed your stay here with us! We apologize for any and all discomforts that made your stay anything short of excellent! We were sold out that weekend, and had multiple teams onsite at once, which is why the towels went so quickly. However, that is not an excuse because our goal is give you all the best customer experience possible. I have made a note of those things and they have been addressed. We hope to see you all again next year, as we are purposed to give you all a five star experience, and hopefully leave a smiling impression on your face that will last long after your departure. Thanks again.

Overall Score5.0/ 5
The Patriot Guard held their Dixie Regional Gathering in Huntsville and we used the Holiday Inn as our host hotel. All of the staff were very friendly and courteous and made sure that we had everything we could possibly need. The rooms were very comfortable and well looked after and they gave us all a nice group rate. We enjoyed our stay immensely and had a fantastic time. Thank you to all the staff for helping with our event! I would recommend this hotel to anyone looking for a comfortable stay in Huntsville.

Testimonials: Why use Hotel Planner?

Testimonials icon
"Thank you so much for an amazing website. I had a very short time frame to manage a bus tour of 45. I needed hotels and banquets in less than 10 days. The destination was West Palm Beach - high season - and effectively sold-out. Within two hours I had responses back from three available hotels within my price range. I was able to sign a contract within 24 hours and manage the rest of the program. I continue to be impressed with your concept and will be a frequent user of your site." L.B. - Grand Rapids, MI
