Very good location, 5 minutes from St Armand Circle shops
The staff is really friendly
The room was clean and spacious
If you can book a room with an ocean view you could enjoy the sunset !!
Checking and checkout were fast
For breakfast you have a Menu during the week and a buffet during the weekend
The restaurant is on the 7 level with a beautiful view

We Loved It!


This hotel exceeded are expectations. The rooms are a bit old fashioned and the bathrooms are small, but everything was faultlessly clean and all the personnel we interacted with were friendly and professional. The food in the lobby bar and the restaurant were excellent. The price for a room is a little high for a Holiday Inn, but the location across from Lido Beach and the gulf views make it worth the price. Even the city views are lovely! We definitely recommend this property and are already planning to visit again!
