Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by JW3424 Excellent place to stay
We have stayed at this location before and have always had a great experience. They have an excellent staff both at the desk and behind the scenes as well. All the employees that we interacted with were very friendly and helpful! Highly recommend staying at this location, and plan to do so again in the future!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Red64 Friendliest staff and above and beyond service Ever!
I have travelled extensively throughout my lifetime and I have never experienced a more friendlier or more helpful staff. The shuttle service is above and beyond any "out of Towners" expectations.
I witnessed first hand the compassion and warmth of Frank, Maggie, Frankie, Renaldo and Sandra for myself and other guests and how we were treated and cared for. It is truly a home away from home.
The value is more than I ever expected and I am blown away by my time spent in this hotel. I look forward to returning to the Holiday Inn in Richardson, TX for my next visit to this city.
Kindest Regards and God Bless

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by cessnapilot904 Quick stay, very accommodating staff
There were several of us staying at this particular hotel and we arrived very early - thanks to a last minute schedule change. The front desk staff was extremely accommodating to us - and got us in our rooms early so we could get settled before we headed out for our long day of business.
Room was comfortable. It was a little difficult to find open outlets to charge my cell phone. I use the alarm clock on my phone to wake me so I like to keep it near the bed.
I had breakfast and the buffet was well appointed - thought it was much better than some other properties that I stayed at - including fresh cooked omlets.
Overall, would recommend this location.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Omaha John nice property but poorly managed
for a few dollars more I should have stayed at a much better hotel in the area;. Marriott , Haitt or Double tree. Property is nice but very poorly managed.
Before arriving I checked by phone to make sure there was a luggage cart for our car full of items that needed to be taken to our room. I was assured that there were plenty of luggage carts When we arrived there were no luggage carts available when we checked in. (they had only 2 carts)
The young man at front desk was rude and unconcerned during check in...no one made any effort to find a luggage cart for us.
We finally carried our luggage in taking several trips.
Parking lot was full and parking was only available in the back of the hotel with no access to the hotel with out walking back around to the front entrance.
This hotel is over priced for the level of service provided and very poorly managed.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Sherie m Reward Points and Stays
I have been staying at this hotel for many years and have been very happy with my experience but I just found out yesterday (2/12/14) that since Jan 2013, this location has been assigning my points and stays to another guest. 32 days!!!! This has resulted in my losing platinum status and I had to spend time giving every confirmation number for the last year to recover my points. I have now learned to always check my stays and points on the rewards web site. BUT I shouldn't have to bird dog their system!!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by doTERRA Pros Ashley Front Desk Commander!!!!!
We have utilized this property over the last few years, primarily because of it's pet policy....and yet we are ALWAYS blown away by the 'extra special attention' that ASHLEY at the front desk provides.
Now, we realize it is not because WE are special, but because SHE takes that interest and care with ALL her guests.
She is truly a gem, and worthy of any and all your time and attention as she is superb at her job, and takes a special interest in any and all the guests needs and wants.

We book a suite with double beds.
When we arrived found out the hotel did not offer those type room.
staying with 2 teenager this is not what we wanted.
The room was VERY small and did not work well for us.
Also the indoor pool was cold. Ask staff if could make warmer was told "no".
Stay at alot Holiday Inn property this one is BAD!

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by ExpectedMore Needs updating and new beds
This is a lovely hotel on the first floor. Rooms are just average and need updating. The whole bathroom design is terrible. The sink is outside the bath and it is so high that I nearly need a stool to brush my teeth. The tub was unsightly and there was water damage on the door frame. I had to open the door and stand in the hall to get connected to the Internet. The bed was the worst....hard like sleeping on concrete.
I would not recommend it mainly due to the bed and poor pillows.
The staff was very pleasant.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by tukn30s Great Hotel
I stayed pretty much 3 months straight at this hotel and was never let down at any point. Danny is a terrific manager and Betsy is always kind and joyful first thing in the morning. All of the other staff was knowledgeable and kind. They helped us with all of our paperwork in billing, even with 10 or more of our staff moving in and out of the hotel. The location is great, especially if you are in town for business at any of the telecom or data hosting facilities, its close to all of them. Great restaurants and shopping are all available within a few minute drive. I will always stay here when I am in Richardson.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Maltbear Good value for the money!
My mother and I stayed in this hotel for four nights. It was very quiet due to the thicker walls of an older hotel. I enjoyed the workout room and sauna; had it all to myself for the entire time! A few things are worth noting. Our room had the sink outside of the shower/toilet room. This made morning preparations difficult when the other person was trying to sleep. I didn't find any extra blankets in the room - could have called Housekeeping, I'm sure - but I was so tired by the time I came in that I didn't bother. Only gave a free shampoo; would have been nice to have conditioner. (Once again, I'm confident Housekeeping would have assisted in this!) The on sight restaurant was no more expensive than surrounding restaurants; a bit on the greasy side, but OK. The one thing that was taxing to me was the continuously piped in music throughout the hotel. It was everywhere! To find a quiet place to read a book I had to - you guessed it - retire to the sauna. There was no office space to speak of. That being said, the staff was hardworking, attentive and most pleasant.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by DFWBound Older hotel and difficult to reach
The internet was out entirely one evening during my stay. Other times a complete restart of the internet was required before the redirect would properly log me in. Breakfast selection was small. The office chair was lopsided. I found myself working on the bed instead of the desk. The walls are pretty thin and doors are heavy. The evening was usually full of door opening and slamming by their own weight. Also I didn't receive any added value for being an IHG member.

The Room was great.It was clean,slept ok and bathroom was clean. The bad part was the Breakfast. I had breakfast during the week and it was best thing you could eat. The weekend Breakfast is Bad. The fruit was hard and the Pancakes was too. The weekend Chef needs to eat his own food and see if he likes it. I will recommend the hotel to others. I will tell them beware of the breakfast on weekends.

I booked 2 nights and my first night pleasant. My key I had to get re-keyed every day. Housekeeping never services my room even thou I requested with morning & evening staff. Had to move rooms at night before midnight. I had to move my own stuff w/injured knee from surgery.
Laundry was FREE to guest, hadn't ever experienced this before.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by PJT49 Needs desperate updating......
My business partner [Platinum status] & I [gold elite] booked 4 nights at this hotel. We received the standard upgrade to executive rooms.
I have to say these were the worst room we have ever stayed in. It was as if the rooms had not been updated since the 1970/80"s [honestly]. The look of these rooms gave the impression they were unclean. We contact IHG and asked to be moved to another hotel. This was done and we had reservations made at the Candlewood Suits. In no way shape or for does this hotel match up to any othe Holiday Inn we have stayed in previously. We will be putting in a formal complaint as this cost us time [having to cancel appointments] and also under no circumstances were we going to invite customer to this hotel for meetings etc.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Rokie Remodeled Rooms Experience Still Antiquated
The horse sculptures out front and a nicely appointed lobby were promising. This diminished quickly with a very unwelcoming and curt staff member who checked me in. The room was small and cramped. The two beds in the room were slightly larger than twin beds. The room did not come with a microwave or a mini fridge which I find almost to be standard these days. Also, as an IHCG Rewards Club member I was supposed to receive free wifi. After several hours of attempting to get it to work and checking every setting on my laptop as well as a phone call to technical support I gave up. I cannot comment on the food as I did not dine in the restaurant and no breakfast was included which I also find standard at most properties I stay at. Although you could tell the rooms were remodeled the furnishings were very dated and not in good shape. All in all it was extremely disappointing.

One of the great things about Holiday Inns and Holiday Inn Express is that they never let you down. Pleasant staff. Clean rooms. Excellent breakfasts.
I arrived without a reservation but was made very welcome. The Executive Floor was quiet even though there were events in the hotel.
While this HI is not the closest to the Bush 43 Library, I am quite sure it is quieter than the one across the street from the Library!
If I am ever back in the area, I know where I will stay.
Well Done. Thank you.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Petro572 Nice place. Courteous staff.
The only complaint I have is I could not leave any exit without walking through cigarette smoke. The smoking benches are situated so that anyone entering or exiting the building has to walk through a cloud of smoke.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by 10Grandma Problems with room
after checking in my key card did not work and I had to go to the desk to get it fixed. Then about an hour later another couple opened my door as they had been assigned the same room. Very upsetting. Then when I went to the restaurant, they did not have my first 3 choices for dinner. However, the Taco salad was very good. I took it to my room and my key did not work again. Nor did it work the next morning after breakfast. The manager gave me 10,000 points on my priority card so I guess all is OK.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by pviola147 First time Dallas visit met with good service
This hotel stay was enjoyable overall. Since I was staying with a friend and both of us had never been to Dallas, we needed transportation to various locations. The shuttle services here were extremely useful and we had kind and generous drivers for each trip to and from our destination.
Rooms were comfortable, however the executive suite seemed a bit smaller than described on the website (but that could be due to having double beds rather than a single). Tasty breakfast buffet, but remember to ask for your vouchers at the front desk first if you booked a reservation with the breakfast option. A couple of amenities are slightly dated (specifically the mini fridge) but everything worked properly. Front desk staff were always available and ready to help. For a first time stay in Dallas, I'm glad I chose to book with Holiday Inn.

I stayed here about 3 years ago and I was impressed with the free breakfast and alcoholic beverage. Now you get nothing extra. And the lady at the front is rude. She could not find my reservation until I pulled out my confirmation number. If it was not for the points I would never stay here. My bathroom smelled bad.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Fischer64 customer feedback
Service and amenities have gone down lately. I am a gold member, and have been at the richardson holiday Inn at least 15 times in the past 9 months, reserving my stay about a week or 2 in advance and staying 3-4 days on the average, but don't seem to get the executive rooms any more. Several times I have asked for it, but the rooms are full. One advantage of those rooms is the refrigerator with a bottle of water, but many times, it is not stocked (the tap water tastes awful in Dallas). I've tried early checkin at 11 am, but nothing available and told to try after 3 pm, the usual check-in time. I usually work until 7:00 pm or later, and I guess the good rooms are now taken. A few months ago, I was locked in the fitness room and had to call for someone to open the door, which took about 15 minutes for someone to get there. Other times, the doors to the fitness center were broken and I could not get in. I have had my card key denied twice a day before I checked out, and that is inconvenient from the 6th floor back to the main desk. With one printer working, it takes awhile to print my boarding pass if someone else is occupying the only computer that prints.

I have been staying here for about 10 years. Have noticed the last few times that certain things provided before were no longer provided such as shoe shine cloth, USA Today, bottle of water each day and terry robes.
Prices have also gone up and is amongst the highest in the area.
Will explore other closeby hotels for future visits.
