Out of 4,500 hotels in the Intercontinental Group, the local Holiday Inn-Airport has won honors for service to guests.
The rating was achieved in Intercontinental's Overall Service rankings, which regularly survey a random sample of guests and rank the group's hotels, said Marshall Williamson, Guest Services Manager. In the most recent rankings, the hotel was among the top quarter of all the chain's hotels.
The hotel has been called "America's most spectacular Holiday Inn," as a result of an investment of $7 million more than in the usual hotel its size. There's a six-story atrium inside, ringed by rooms all the way up, and an indoor swimming pool - and both are the area's only ones. Also unique are kids' private bedrooms in some suites, with bunk beds.
