Reviewed yesterday NEW

The hotel itself was very clean and presentable. I reserved a double bed executive for three nights over the phone through Holiday Inn. I specifically wanted a room with extra space, as my 25 year old daughter and her 19 month old son were along for the trip. The woman described the room as an executive suite, with a pull...

Just returned from a really nice stay at the Holiday Inn Worlds Fair. Location is good. Within walking distance to Market Square shops and dining. Check in was easy and swift. Everything on reservation was correct. Staff at the front desk is professional and courteous. I needed help with luggage. That also went well. They have a lobby shop, good...

The hotel is located near the Market Square for good food and drinks. It is very close to I-40 and though it is not noisy, it is a busy traffic area. It is also nice and close to the university and the World's Fair buildings and park. The motel is nice with a paid parking garage next door and nice...

The hotel was very nice and modern in the suites and lobby area. All of the employees were very professional and attentive to all of our needs. The cons were that there is no valet parking and not enough handicap parking.

11th Floor is great with excellent views over the Park and surrounds. Commons areas are all very well equipped, furnished and modern looking. Bar is a great place to sit and chat and look over the park. Only thing I think is that the rooms need mouthwash, Q-Tips and a robe.

My sister and I attended a conference from Thur-Saturday. We loved the hotel and staff. Very clean and the service was great. Friendly Staff!

Stayed here on a recent business trip. Location is good and I particularly appreciate the focus on sustainability. The room was clean and the bed comfortable. Parking is on site, however it is rather challenging in a basement garage. I would echo some of the same comments that others have made, that the construction was sloppy and is already showing...

Thank you for sharing your comments with us. I'm not sure what construction you were referring, but we certainly appreciate the feedback.

Dear Sir/Madam I want to personally apologize for the poor experience you described in your review of our hotel. Honestly I don't know what to say.

The facility looks nice if you don't look too close. Either it is not being maintained or was not built well or both, but the window facing a busy (loud) roadway had more than a 1/4" gap but didn't seem to be an operable window, there is little to no sound insulation between rooms & there is mildew in the...

Thank you for your comments. We've been testing a number of new sound insulated window products designed to mitigate road noise. As the downtown area has gotten busier we're finding road noise from Henley street is increasing (especially on the weekends). On your next trip please request a room on a higher floor, or facing the World's Fair Park. Our...
