"Awesome, Friendly staff, loved that we were asked whether we wanted a room near the elevator or not "
Overall Score5.0/ 5
See above ! Also great value for your money and loved being so close to the Hudson River,.

08-Jul-2019 Verified Review, stayed from Fri Jul 05 to Sat Jul 06 2019 at a $109.61 average nightly rate.
"Decent Hotel"
Overall Score3.0/ 5
We came on the night of 3/23/2019 for a concert. This was a good hotel choice based on location to Times Union Center. Pros: room was clean, nice. Complimentary breakfast was above average. Walking distance to the concert venue. Cons: the biggest complaint I had was that when I booked, the agency I booked about a month prior, I had the rep look for hotels within walking distance and had a hot tub. This was the best fit and pretty pricey. When we arrived the pool / hot tub was under maintenance and the desk lady's only comment was “it's been under maintence for two weeks, it's on the website”, which I thought was pretty rude. Lets be honest, nobody goes back and checks websites after booking for that? We came for my wife's birthday and hours early just to use the hot tub so we were disappointed to say the least. I would have expected just a little more empathy for trained staff. Side note, the tub had no drain plug either, so the Holiday Inn must be a shower only hotel?.
