I was traveling to Florida with my husband along with my children and their children. One son arrived Sunday night and was immediately picked up at the airport. Great service. One son came the next day and had ok service. I arrived the following day with my husband and son with his family. We waited at the airport at the curb for at least half an hour or more before being picked up. No apology. My son needed a blanket for the couch bed and was told it was there and it was not and came into our room and we only had a sheet on our couch bed. My daughter took a red eye and arrived the next morning. They came into the lobby after going to a restaurant to eat breakfast and sat waiting for us to wake up. They were told they could not sit there. My son in law travels a lot and uses Holiday Inns and was surprised with the treatment. Needless to say we were disappointed with our service. When we decided to book our hotel, my one daughter in law insisted on your hotel because she thought it would be a nice place to stay. We regret deciding on your place. This was a once in a lifetime trip for us and now that it is over it is probably the one thing we would do differently.
