For business, I stay at Holiday Inn Expresses primarily as that's what my company is willing to shell out for us. Most of them are almost identical as far as decor and amenities. While the decor at this hotel is pretty standard, I was taken by the kindness of their front desk staff. It isn't something I seek out, but it is nice to be greeted very professionally as a platinum member.
This hotel offers little extras that really make a difference in my opinion. For example, the fitness center, in addition to the standard cardio machines, also has dumbbells and a flat bench. The pool area is also much nicer and larger than what you see at most HIEs. And although I haven't indulged, I hear that the free ice cream in the evenings is great. It is conveniently located to I-75 and lots of places to eat. I would definitely recommend this hotel to others.
