The beds (and pillows) are amongst the most comfortable we have ever slept in. My 2 and 4 year old slept through the night which is rare even at home. Great breakfast in the morning with delicious muffins. If the GM reads this can you please share the brand and type of mattress and pillows you use.

The pillows are a special pillow that is standard in all Holiday Inn Express Hotels. The mattress is a Serta Concierge Suite Plush model. I can't speak for all Express Hotels, but the majority of them... More

The hotel is very well kept and very nice. The staff is friendly. Breakfast is good and includes hot items. Nice fitness center with a good selection of equipment. You do have to drive to the restaurants.
