I like Holiday Inn Express for predictability. It's like McDonald's, you know what you get, regardless of location. This HIE is no exception. The hotel is clean, helpful staff, room seemed to be bigger than other HIE's I've stayed at but this may be due to the different bed configuration.
The only real issue I had was with the internet connection. In the room, you only get a wired connection, which was down the whole time I was staying there, i.e. overnight. There is wireless in the lobby but it doesn't seem to work with iPass.
Breakfast was pretty standard for HIE, I was disappointed by the complete lack of vegetables. I wish HIEs would add them to the menu. Otherwise, anyone with gluten issues has to stick with eggs and sausages only. Having read the reviews, I passed on the orange juice but my colleague didn't listen and said it was "toxic". :)
Summarizing, I do recommend this hotel.
