I am a Spire member with IHG, checking into hotel , at 3:00 was told that rooms were not available, had to wait 15 minutes. Then asked if the room met my profile, was told no, not available for upper floor, only first floor but assured quiet. Got to my room , after a long trip, tried to take a nap, and landscaper with blower outside my window for at least 15 minutes! Then wanted to watch something on HBO, only adds for Dish Network, called front desk, sent someone who got information that sometimes it works sometimes it does not. Worst attention by an IHG Hotel inn 15 years of being happy with your hotels. Very disattisfied, would not recommend this hotel to anyone, false advertising etc!
OK. Overpriced. Beds are doubles in double rooms. Key stopped working on 3rd day-one of my pet peeves. Found a garment in drawer that was not ours on arrival. No toilet paper in room and took 45 minutes to get some. Room service and housekeeping were both a plus during our stay. Not terribly convenient to any place and “student” staff needs some grooming.
