Holiday Inn Garden Court City Centre

Member Rating 2 out of 5 by food&fun on June 23, 2001

The Garden Court imprint of Holiday Inn designates a privately owned European-style hotel that provides Holiday Inn-style amenities. We have found them to be good value for the money. Our room was small by American standards, but comfortable and adequately equipped -- a queen sized bed, two chairs, a small table and a dresser. It also had a mini-bar, pants press and hair drier. The bathroom was also small, but the showerhead was very good. Towels were bath-sized but very thin. The reception desk staff were friendly and helpful. They provided good directions for us and, when we asked if there was an Internet Café in town, they photocopied a brochure from one and showed us on the map how to get there. Parking is available in their garage for about $6; the driveway is very narrow and if there is no room left on the first floor, you have to drive your car into an elevator to take it to another level! The hotel is walking distance from the cathedral and the central pedestrian mall.

The main drawback of the hotel was that, even though we had a non-smoking room, it was extremely smoky from the air conditioning unit, starting about 10 p.m. and lasting until the next morning. The hotel seems to cater to tour groups (we saw the buses outside) and we assumed that the groups had arrived back from dinner and started smoking in the rooms about 10 p.m.
