During the check in process the representative assisting me ask my reason for the stay since I live in the same town. I why she needed to know and she responded that they don't rent to locals. I replied that my family and I are relocating to a different part of the state and had movers packing our house. She responded that felt it was a good enough reason. I then asked her why it mattered and she responded "because of drugs".
I am a Priority member and a solid family man and this whole transaction made me feel extremely uncomfortable. I will not be staying at anymore Holiday Inns after this stay. Holiday Inn's apparent policy of profiling and discrimination is absurd and I will be raising a flag to the whole issue and shedding light to all that will listen.
