Our group moved from a local hotel to the HI. Our Holiday Inn rooms met travel requirements, was clean, and was highly functional for foreign travel. Morning breakfast was overcrowded and needs to be retooled, especially with a dining room area unused close-by.

I almost can find something wrong with this hotel , everything is nice. The room is spacious, the manager Kevin Chou is hard working manager, working long hours I check in at 1 pm and when I went down to lobby by 11 pm he was still there working serving customer on the front desk. He speak a good English!
