The hotel was great - location, room, food, etc. Oh, but we had to kill a small spider and some giant looking mosquito in our room (on the ceiling and in the window sill). My major turn off was that there is only one elevator servicing the 4 floors and that one morning after breakfast there were 5 people waiting... More

My destination was Madigan. This hotel is convenient to and from I-5 and is a great value with excellent service. The breakfast was sufficient and the staff were helpful when I left an item in the room.

To be fair, I didn't stay at this hotel. I stayed at the Downtown location which was much better, but that was the issue. I accidentally booked this hotel as opposed to the Downtown location and called the morning of the reservation explaining the situation. Even though the nice lady at the Downtown location said they would cancel if they... More

We had lodged at an extended stay place the month before and weren't happy. So we tried this HI express for only about $8 more, even though it was farther from where we were visiting. It was well worth it! It's new and clean and the fireplace and water feature made the entry lobby / breakfast area very homey and... More

To be fair, this is located on hotel row and it is Tacoma. I don't think that any other hotel is going to be much better. As far as the facility itself, we were very pleased. Our room was clean and roomy enough. Everything was in good repair. (I'm in maintenance so I would know). The breakfast was generous with... More

I travel for business frequently, and when I can, I like to stay at chain hotels for the consistency among each brand. I do have a soft spot for Holiday Inns, so when my company recommended I stay at this hotel, I couldn't say no. I've stayed here monthly since July and have yet to be disappointed. The rooms are...

I took my daughter to her first concert at the Tacoma Dome. We stayed at The Holiday Inn Express Downtown and loved it. Our room was beautiful, spacious, and the bed was so comfortable. We were able to walk 2 blocks to dinner (ALL downtown restaurants are within walking distance) and 2 blocks to take the free shuttle to the... More

The staff in this hotel were very helpful and polite. I was upgraded to a king suite...but I could tell it wasn't used for a while and needed airing out.

I was 3 hours from boarding my plane for this trip when I got a call that my husband was having heart problems. I had to abandon my flight. The airline was more understanding than this hotel.
