The staff was awesome, the room was clean, the beds were the MOST comfortable and breakfast was delicious. The room we had was huge, was couldn't believe how much room we had. I also really wish we could have taken that bed home,... More

The Indoor pool and hot tub are very well kept and quiet. Only problems were that pricing is a Bit too high... the beds were too soft, were only half made, and only... More

I was stayed here recently for a business trip. Overall, the hotel was very nice. The staff was very courteous and the free breakfast was very nice (really liked that pancake machine!). There was even a buffet dinner with beer on one of the nights. Not sure if it was only offered that one night but we never saw it... More

I recently stayed her for a second time on a business trip. Very easy to access off the highway (follow your nose at the traffic light and forget about the Garmin). Front desk was polite and professional. My room was very clean and quiet. Breakfast was full and plentiful. No issues at all.

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.

UofMAnnArbor, So great to hear that you enjoyed your stay and sleep with us. I too, must admit the pillows and mattresses are wonderful! 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.
