Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by SoonerBorn Great hotel, but poor food and loud
The hotel staff was great. The front desk clerk was awesome. The only problems I encounterd in my 9 day stay was that you can hear people and sounds from other rooms. Im guessing either by the windows or the heating/air system. You can also hear people walking around above and below you. I would have assumed the hotel would have done a better job taking that into consideration. The beds are comfortable, but the sound of theair conditioner ticking is LOUD.The food was so-so. Very basic and desserts were almost non-existant. This maybe due to the fact they are in between chefs. I was told that by the staff.
Overall, Ive stayed in worse and better. Its average.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by frozendancer We absolutely froze!
The hotel was fine; we weren't there long. Be advised, however, that adjusting the room temperature from heat to air-conditioning cannot be done in room on your own. When we were there, our room was an ice-box while our neighbor's was a sauna. I did not know to call to have maintenance come and switch something in the heat/air vents to change over from cool to heat and kept waiting for the room to heat up when I adjusted the thermostat to hot. When the temp is changing, the front desk needs to alert people at time of check-in that they cannot adjust from ac to heat on their own. Re: food - we had the buffet breakfast and received poor service and food was not refilled on the buffet. Barely anything was on the buffet the whole time and we were there around 9AM so not too close to the end on the weekend.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by ftsmithvisitor2013 Hot and Cold (but otherwise great)
We loved the open central atrium that the rooms overlooked - really created a great feel instead of long stuffy dark hallways. Rooms also seemed well sound-proofed. But the air conditioning unit options pretty much came down to really cold or nothing. We would turn the AC on for an hour just to freshen up the air (was a bit stuffy otherwise), but then had to turn off as was way too cold! Also the hot was was so hot that you could really burn yourself if you weren't careful when turning on the sink/shower. And my husband is really picky about beds and pillows and he didn't sleep well at all. But otherwise great facility with free wi-fi in the rooms, free breakfast, and a nice atrium. And conveniently connected to the Convention Center, which is a really great facility.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Akphillips Horrible stay
The room was hot and stuffy when we arrived, but the air conditioning fan made a horrible noise. When I called the front desk, they were extremely apologetic and nice, butvoffered no solution.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Deborah67 Excellent staff skills and desire to be helpful
Having stayed in many different places for many years in many different venues, I can say this Holiday Inn has the most friendly and helpful staff I have ever had the pleasure of dealing with. Even if they cannot accommodate what is asked for, they are kind and seem generally sorry they cannot help. They are very professional and remember you from the day before and what interaction took place, checking up on it. The rooms are always clean and comfortable. I wish I had that bed! The only negative is lunch and dinner at the restaurant seems a little lacking in quality and taste. It was inconvenient on Saturday evening to have to go out to eat because only a buffet was being served that was not to my taste when all I had wanted to do was have a nice salad and use the hot tub which I did not get to do since I had to go out to eat. I am a senior citizen and my stamina was not able to do both. But all in all, it is a great place to stay and so nice not to have to get out in the weather to go to the Convention Center. Thank you again.

I love my stays at Holiday Inn. I especially like the friendly staff that greets us with a smile. I need to mention one emp. whos name is Kevin, he went the extra mile for me and please let him know I told you so. I ask about my king suite as to why it did not have a frige or mic. in it and he said he would check on it for me. When I return from dinner I have a frige and microwave in my room. thanks to Kevin
I love you all.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by k1952 Very Uncomfortable
The reception staff was ok, nothing more. I didn't appreciate having the manager come up to try to convince me to enroll in a promotional program when I said no to the receptionist. The bed was hard, as a board, I had poor night sleeps both nights. The screw on the toilet seat was broken. The armrest on the sofa bed was worn, able to see the foam. And the sofa bed was not very uncomfortable to sit on, the cushion sank into the bed and I could feel the wood frame on the back of my legs. All conference rooms were freezing.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by John1070 No other choice
When staying in Ft. Smith, there is no other choice for me other than this Holiday Inn. I have stayed here numerous times and this will always be my "go to" location. The staff is second to none and the cleanliness leaves nothing to be desired. This will be my home away from home as long as I travel to the area. The daytime front desk manager, Crystal is one of the most personable people I have ever encountered in the hospitality industry. There is also a young man, Devin, that is accomodating and professional way beyond his years. Keep it up guys and you will always have my business.

Old hotel need updates. Bed uncomfortable & it was noisy outside. Hold to fall sleep. Food was not good and we had to wait a long time to be served. We missed sessions of our meeting waiting for our food. Parking not good. Limited parking close to the hotel. I had to park in a parking deck across the street. Staff was friendly & helpful.

We always get the same room and the customer service is awesome. They accomodate quickly if something is needed in the room, acknowledge me as a Platinum member and ask if assistance is needed with luggage or anything else.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by spray926 cold
the room & service were fine, but the meeting rooms were
terrible. I have never been in rooms that were so cold.
In a hotel that nice, temperature should be able to be
controled. I would not schedule meetings or a convention
at this hotel.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by JAMpru8 accommodating room and meal
Enjoyed staying at FSM Holiday Inn. The fountains and elevators were all working, which hadn't been the case in previous visits. My room was quiet and very comfortable. We had just a few minutes to eat between appointments and the service was great even though we were outside normal dining times. The business center is very accommodating for printing off boarding passes and really enjoyed the little gift bag at check-in.

The hotel and furnishings need repair and replacement appears owners are not willing to reinvest in the building. The staff was great and seem to care about the guest.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by BoBo32 The room was very clean and comfortable, the servic was great and my grandsons loved the pool.
The parking was clean and well lite at night, the entrance and lobby was very bright, clean and friendly faces and smiles meet you at the desk or sooner. The elevator view was fantastic over looking the lobby and dinning area and my wife just loved the water falls. The pool was just great, like I said, my grandsons loved it, the ice machine worked and the area around it was very clean and the room was very good and clean.
We enjoyed the stay very much and will stay there again.

Other than parking, which during the week can be challenging, this facility has it all. A great staff, clean rooms, and being centrally located are the reasons this hotel is my preference when traveling through Ft. Smith.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by PFMO Very good, except...
This property is right in the down town next to the convention center. There are many restaurants and bars a block from the hotel and it seemed safe. The rooms are well appointed and clean with comfortable beds. Very positive so far right? Unfortunately, the first room I was in was directly above a ballroom where a rock and roll band was playing on a Wednesday evening. After three calls to the front desk, they finally agreed to move me to the other side of the hotel. I missed a few hours of sleep and that is the only negative from my stay at the Fort Smith Holiday Inn.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by krs1100 Parking is ridiculous.
The air conditioning was not adequate even in low 90 degree weather. The parking is horrible. For a Holiday Inn of this size, the parking lot is laughable. There is a parking deck across the street with additional parking - Approximately 31 additional spaces. I gave the hotel a rating of 2 starts only because the staff was terrific.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 Nice room, clean, comfortable -- Needs Pillow upgrades
We stayed at this hotel recently.
Avg room -- Bottom line: We would stay again, but would bring our own pillows next time. Even the "soft" pillows are at this hotel are cheaply made. Holiday Inn, Please UPGRADE the pillows and charge another $2 per night. Bed was on the hard side, but it wasn't too uncomfortable.
We enjoyed our stay because of convenience, price, accomodations, in that order. When a convention is in progress -- the 2 elevators are quite slow. Very nice shower head, water pressure and toiletries.
Front Desk -- AAAA+ excellent ! Very nice and helpful.

I was not feeling well one one day of my visit, and needed some assistant, which the front desk sent someone to care for my needs. The staff was very caring and polite. the house keepers did a very nice job of keep our room clean and supplying the things we needed.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by suggs1978 Above and Beyond Service
My recent stay was to help my 84 yr. old grandmother during the Jehovah's Witness Convention. I was very impressed with the hotel staff. Not only were they professionally dressed they were very courteous and worked quickly to get us in our room even though they had numerous guest all arriving at once. The breakfast staff were always cheerful and greeted us with a smile and warm good morning, then promptly seated us. They were very attentive of all guests in making sure they always had what they needed. I am an owner of a small hotel in another town and know how hard it is to employee people that realize what it takes to be in the hospitality business. I applaud the hotel for employing such people. And for being prepared for such a large group of people.
