Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Troutandabout Nice renovations but a few mistakes.....
I've stayed in this property fairly regularly over the past 7-8 years. It was getting time for some updating and they are in the process of doing it - which is appreciated. The problem is that they did not put an adjustable height desk chair by the work table. Instead they put a side chair with arms that sits so low that it is virtually unuseable if you expect to get any work done. Also, there are no towel bars in the bathroom which is a little bit of a hassle.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by dlp8940 Under refurbishment, but OK
The hotel is undergoing renovation, so there are some clutter and work activities, however, this did not have a negative impact on the noise at night. I did notice that in 2 visits in 2 weeks that both rooms did not have a toilet paper holder.... Overall, this is a good location with a friendly staff, and the refurbish activity should result in improvement. The standard HIE breakfast is OK, but the scrambled eggs seem to be from a mix, and not so great. The rest of the choices are good.

I'm not a fussy guy, and I usually don't even notice such things let alone write about them, but this place is really doing a disservice to IHG and the otherwise usually consistent standards of HI/HIX hotels. The room itself actually wasn't bad, about average for this type of hotel. However, to get to the room, you had to walk through a lobby that looked like it hadn't seen a vacuum cleaner since sometime during the Clinton administration, and hasn't seen new carpet since Nixon was in office. Directly outside our room door was what appeared to be a large bloodstain. The only thing more visually offensive than the carpets is the Kermit-the-Frog electric green paint they chose to color the interior with. I sure hope they got a good deal on that paint, as I imagine some paint salesman being thrilled to unload even a gallon of that stuff on some colorblind soul. After seeing the cleanliness of the lobby and hallways, eating breakfast there was pretty much out of the question, but there is an IHOP nearby. Also, no laundry facilities, which are pretty much standard at most HI/HIX hotels.
