    Superb

    It was conveniently located to all the downtown venues/ attractions/events

    The concierge was not as informed as he could have been. The front desk staff on check-out was not real friendly and distracted with talking to the other desk clerks as it was not too busy.

    Superb

    Our stay at Holiday Inn,River mart Plaza was quite cozy and comfortable.However, I did not approve debitting USD 100 as a deposit.This is not acceptable. It was not ratinally explained.Now ithat I left the hotel on 29th May,it should have been debited to my account immediately, but it is still not done.It left a bad taste in my mouth.

    I loved the room. It was very spacious and clean. The beds were very comfortable.

    I went swimming in the pool with the kids. It was very very cold. We all had to jump into the bathtub when we got back because we were so cold. Also they had no towels in the pool area. So we were walking through the hotel dripping wet. They also did not have a hot tub.

    Very good

    The concierge was so helpful.

    I thought the pricing of the food offered was excessive for a breakfast meal. My dinner at Miller's Pub for prime rib was a better value. We opted to eat breakfast elsewhere.

    The view of the river and city from my room on the 15th floor was outstanding. The beds were comfortable and the room was nice and clean. The bar allowed us to eat dinner from the restaurant menu and again the view was wonderful. Very enjoyable stay. I highly recommend this hotel.

    In the afternoon when we took an hour rest in our room one of the staff knocked on the door and without waiting unlocked it and came in to see if we needed anything. We wondered what she would have done if we had been gone. Or, what if a guest had been nude or in some sort of compromised position. Not a good idea to just walk in! We called the desk and let them know. They assured us she was to have waited for us to answer the door or not come in. They also asked our room number and said they would talk with her. We were satisfied. It would have been nice to have a breakfast included with the room cost.

    location was close to marta station, beds were really comfortable, concierge desk was very helpful, on site parking was convenient but expensive ($36/day), view from the room was nice

    The cost was pretty expensive but acceptable for lodging downtown.

    Superb

    Stayed only one night for a performance of Lyric Opera. Location was perfect and the view from the room on the 20th floor was spectacular. We'll do this again if the price is right.

    Exceptional

    Staff was very nice and accomodations were great

    When I checked in the reservationist told me that my debit card would not be charged for the $50 deposit and when I tried to grocery shop on Sunday, the charge would not go through. If I would have expected, I would not have embarrassed myself at the checkout. She stated that she has to let the customer know but it does not always have to be done. Thought that was strange and even volunteered to pay cash but she said that it was not going to be charged to my account. Did not appreciate that.

    Superb

    Great location and value. Being located in a building with a.food.court was an added plus.

    Parkin was ridiculously expensive--$39 a night--and since the hotel is in an Office building the signs for the hotel are hard to see from the road. This wasn't a problem for us, but you're out of luck if you need assistance with your luggage because the hotel lobby (and staff) are on the 15th floor.

    Superb

    My view was great, to the north. I enjoyed one dinner at the restarant, and you can walk to many more. Location on the point terrific.

    Expensive. But I think that was due to conventions.

    Good

    The room had a really cool vibe. There was a painting of the Chicago sky line and the view wasn't half bad.

    The bathroom didn't feel that clean. Going to the room was also a challenge as I think the halls are poorly labelled and there was so much used room service trays in the halls.
