When traveling or business, I often seek out a Holiday Inn Express mainly because of cost and consistency. Most of these chains are well kept with clean smelling rooms and clean linens. Free breakfast is always a plus as well. However, there are except to every rule, but this isn't one. I recommend it.

We arrived or shall we say we almost arrived. We had trouble finding the hotel because we put in our GPS 11th Ave. So please keep this in mind that there is a, 11th St and an 11th Ave it makes a huge difference. Being out of towners we didn't realize that the streets/ave share the same name in the... More

After my experience today I advise everyone to stay away from this hotel!! I work in the hospitality industry and to be treated the way I was with such disregard to customer service is beyond mind blowing.

The hotel was perfect. It was very clean, offered a great breakfast and had an extremely helpful and polite staff. We had a great experience and we were pleased with the convenience of restaurants and convention center close by. We would definitely recommend your hotel to future guests!

Our group stayed at this hotel for three nights and really enjoyed our stay. The hotel is conveniently located close to all of the hustle and bustle of downtown, in a slightly more quiet area a few blocks away. The rooms were clean, breakfast was good, and the staff was wonderful. I highly recommend this hotel.

I enjoyed my two night stay at the Holiday Inn Express. If you are bringing a car, they have very limited parking next to the hotel, but the parking garage across the street is easily accessible and roughly the same cost. Hotel staff was very friendly and the rooms were clean. This hotel is within walking distance of a lot... More
