                Everything perfect. No point to live in The Westin or Grant Hyatt for a rate that is twice as much as this Holiday Inn Riverwalk. I like it very much. Plus, the 'Best for value' on their breakfast menu is my favorite. :-)

                No parking available as advertised. Had to go to a parking garage at 1am. Very unsatisfactory and will keep me from using them again.

                We enjoyed being able to walk right down to the Riverwalk.

                The hotel needs to be renovated plus the room we got a confirmed reservation for is not the room we were given. The staff changed the reason for the for this several times but did not resolve the issue.

                The hotel was everything and more as described on Booked.net. It was my first experience making a reservation like this, and based on my experience, I would do it again. The hotel staff was "more than" accommodating to my mom, who has leg and back troubles. The location on The Riverwalk was great, in addition to the fact that we were able to find "non-touristy" spots to shop and eat.

                The beds are smooth and let you relax for real

                The balcony was not available and the hotel was in maintenance, every day at 8am a drill mimicking a mosquito wakes us up. Due to this, the price paid was too much ...

                Housekeeping, front desk and room service was very nice and friendly.

                Was not told about self parking fee as a guest at hotel, was very surprise. Was not told till we arrived that construction was being done and the balacony was closed (that was the worst) and it was very noisy during the day. The patio door was missing the handle and we heard everything outside all night. We asked it to be fixed and it never was.

                Location was great! Weather was awesome. Rooms were very nice.

                Could not go on balcony due to construction. I was not informed of this when I registered on line or it was not stated clearly or upfront.

                Close to main area of Riverwalk

                Negative of my booking with a third partry not directly booking with hotel. I was told that on several occasions. Also valets didnot seem as knowledgeable when asked questions of easiest transportation to use, only used one taxi service was very mad when I called for my own taxi of which they didnot use. It was a hassle to finally get coupon for breakfast for third person in my party as internet said for all guests but hotel said it was only for 2, but when I called Booked.net they took care of it quickly. I was told by 3 different local businessmen to not stay there. Anyway town was beautiful people were very friendly.

                Location was good and convenient for riverwalk.

                Two chairs but no table on balcony. One was requested but it was refused. Dated sliding doors.to balcony.-difficult to operate Hotel needs refurbishing. - plaster falling off ceiling in room . Dining room staff seemed miserable. Would not recommend.
