I stayed at the Holiday Inn on the Bay for a quick, overnight trip on my way up north. I had read the reviews and thought would be a good choice. It was an EXCELLENT choice! The hotel is located near many tourist attractions, with the Old Port area within easy walking distance and the art museum right around the corner. I had recently broken my ankle, and the staff bent over backwards to make sure my stay was comfortable AND safe. The free shuttle is wonderful, and a very kind driver named M made sure I knew all about the city. Knowing I could not maneuver the city on foot, he drove me to sites so I could still enjoy everything. The room service was great! I had a steak and was suprised at how well prepared everything was. The only suggestion I could make would be to improve the rooms a bit. Although fairly clean, I felt the room was a bit dated. A good hotel for business or pleasure. I would recommend it to anyone. Would be a great hotel for couples or mature travellers. Kids might find it a bit boring, but there is a children's museum nearby. I would stay again!
