I have low expectations of Holiday Inns but was pleasantly surprised with the Beaumont Plaza property and I was ready to settle in for my 10-day stay. Unfortunately, my contentment was short lived. I rely on a fast Internet connection for work and the speed of the Internet was very poor. The speed averaged 500kps upload/download speeds, which made trying to work very frustrating. Internet speeds of 500kps may have been considered (hi-speed) 10 years ago but such speeds are pitiful by today's standards. Reluctantly, I checked-out after the first night and took Holiday Inn off my list of places I will stay in the future. I chose the Holiday Inn because it was a IHG property and I had just stayed at the Staybridge Hotel in Lafayette, LA and was very pleased as it was very in almost all categories plus (and very important to me) had Internet upload/download speeds of 10MB / sec. So, I was hoping all IHG would have similar connectivity performance but I was wrong. Improve the Internet and I would rate the Holiday Inn Plaza in Beaumont a 4 star.

The evening happy hour was a nice touch as I met with my colleagues over a drink and some snacks. The on site restaurant had a good buffet and offered to make omelettes or fresh eggs. Restaurant had real service, not a help yourself. The atrium lobby with waterfall was exceptional for hotel in this price range.
