It seems that the business plan of Holiday Inn Express is to find old economy level hotels and give them a minor branding upgrade; this hotel follows this model.
Very dated hotel furniture, beds that are sunken in the middle, cheap foam pillows, worn and dirty carpets in the room and corridor.
The breakfast room is small and devised into two spaces of the lobby. The menu - the usual over-processed frozen food items.
The location is good and by day a great neighborhood, however the area is not good for walking after dark. There is a homeless shelter directly across from the hotel; the parking garage makes no secret that your vehicle is at risk of break-in.
I would only return if the rate was good; not worth more than $85/night. Better options in the area are Hilton Garden Inn, The Grand Hotel, or the Mariott courtyard.
