Verified Reviews of Holiday Inn Denver Cherry Creek

Below are the verified reviews from guests that we have booked recently:
"Wonderful Denver Conference Center Alternative."
Overall Score5.0/ 5
We had 10 rooms that included breakfast. All rooms were updated, large rooms with King beds. The breakfast was a hot breakfast and enjoyed by all. We rented to cars to transport everyone to the convention center. The savings was well worth staying at the Holiday Inn Cherry Creek.

Overall Score5.0/ 5
We really enjoyed the stay, the hotel was very clean, had a delicious breakfast, the staff was very helpful and friendly.

07-May-2014 Verified Review, stayed from Fri May 02 to Sun May 04 2014 at a $98.00 group rate (10% discount).
"Room Assignment Not Optimal"
Overall Score3.0/ 5
This room was fine except for we were given a room with a handicap-capable shower and did not need or request that type of room. This would normally be fine except for the shower drainage was defective. When taking a shower, the water ran all over the floor of the bathroom as the drainage was not designed properly. This created a mess in the bathroom with water everywhere. Also, we missed having a bathtub.
(Individual traveler, booked 1 room), from US flag
05-May-2014 Verified Review, stayed from Fri May 02 to Tue May 06 2014 at a $130.95 average nightly rate.
