We booked a room for one last night in Florida - not close to the airport as I had thought - and the place was sparkling, spacious, and comfy. I only had one previous experience with a Holiday Inn Express many years ago, and it was underwhelming to say the least. This property was just what the doctor ordered after... More

The hotel was a nice, very clean hotel. Loved the continental breakfast that had lots of food at it, including hot choices. Pool was nice and really liked the landscaping. Although wish it had a hot tub. Nice to have free games and books to use while there :). Oh yeah, and the free ice cream treats in the evening... More

Arriving after a 11 hour flight we stayed at the presidential suite 1 night and got a good rest. It's quiet and almost everything in working order. Breakfast was included and ok, although we had to ask specifically for hot milk. Checking out I mentioned that a light in the bathroom was not working. Instantly I was given a 25$... More

This was our second stay here. The hotel, the room and the staff were all above average. This is one of the best Holiday Inn Express we have ever stayed at and I would definitely recommend it to anyone coming to Tampa.

Recently returned from Tampa and was impressed by this facility. Friendly staff, modern building and very decent breakfast buffet made the stay a real pleasure. Seems as though the chain's efforts in recent years to update properties and improve services have really paid off.

I had a wonderful and enjoyable time during my 5-night stay while staying at this Holiday Inn Express off of Bruce B. Downs Blvd. It started with making a reservation directly with the hotel. I called only 1 day before my trip to make my reservation and I was able to get a room that I preferred with no issue... More

Dear HFP, Thanks so much your your thoughtful review. It's great when a guest commends a positive feature of our hotel that doesn't get mentioned often - in your case the quiet of the rooms. Beyond that, your compliments to the staff's attention to every detail, and to your comfort and enjoyment, are sincerely appreciated. We were honored to serve... More

This hotel is just awesome. Upon checking in we were offered an adult beverage. The room was clean and spacious. The room rate also comes with a full breakfast including pancakes. I would definitely stay here again.
