I was at the HIE for business so not expecting much. I was pleasantly suprised by the smiles from the front desk reps; Justin, Bree and Lucas. I was in and out thru all hours no matter what time they all had helpful informatiom and smiles always. My room along with the lobby and breakfast area was always spotless. Oh... More

I was booked at the Hilton Garden Inn during the week of a large conference. They apparently overbooked and without consent, transferred my reservation to the Holiday Inn Express Phoenix Airport. It turned out great. For starters, the bed was by FAR more comfortable than the HGI's have I stayed at (and that's my usual go-to place.) Amazingly comfortable. The... More

On my travel to California, my plane delayed enough to miss my connection and I was stuck in Phoenix. As a last minute stay, I got a room at this hotel. They sent the shuttle to pick me up and whem I arrived the front desk showed me a restaurant within walking distance that was open late and good. The... More

I am amazed at the wonderful, courteous perosn who helped me at the front desk. He was willing to take the time and answer all my questions, give directions, and make reservations for me when I return to Phoenix in two weeks. I arrived just before noon and was given my room right away and was pleased to see how... More

We did a stay and park package for our trip to Mexico. stayed a couple of nights ago in one of their rooms with a roll in shower. The room was well located on the first floor with easy access to exits, the lobby and breakfast area. The room itself smelled pretty musty but it was well laid out for... More

This is a great place to spend a night before a plane date the next morning. The breakfast was varied and tasty (eggs were not runny), cinnamon buns and fresh pancakes, as well as biscuits and gravy, good coffee, etc. The bed was very comfortable and the water pressure in the shower head was outstanding! Loved our time here.

I stay in a lot of HIE hotels and this was one of the better ones. I was upgraded to a one bedroom suite very roomy and quiet with fridge and microwave. Staff was very nice and helpful. Would definitely stay here again

This was the last hotel of our two week trip. We had gotten lost before this and were so relieved that the staff were so pleasant and helpful when we got to the reception desk. Lucas was especially helpful with info and he is quite a charming young man. Roz too, was cheery so early in the morning and a... More

This is a very nice Holiday Inn Express, with great staff and all of the things you expect from the HI Express chain -- free breakfast, free wi-fi, comfortable rooms, etc. What makes it a frequent stay for me is its convenient location. It's very close to the airport, but not so close that you hear a lot of flight... More

Hotel was close and convenient to Phoenix Sky Harbor airport, plus the shuttle service is great. The staff was very helpful and accommodating. Our room was quiet, comfortable, had a modern decor and clean. In fact the entire hotel maintenance and appearance was excellent. We would definitely stay here again.
