Good location and great service. Also, conveniently located by a Denny's diner for quick food. Check-in process was great even though I was early and checkout process was automatic. Staff was very pleasant and efficient.

My husband and I have stayed at this HIE before when flying out of BWI. The staff is great and check in is quick and easy. The hotel has a complimentary airport shuttle that runs frequently and will pick you up at BWI on demand when your flight arrives. You can park and leave your car in their lot if you pick the Park n Go rate. We just recently stayed 2 nights- one night before our early outgoing flight and one night on our return because we didn't want to drive the 1.5 hrs home at 1:00am. We've never had any problems and will stay again.

I stayed at the Holiday Inn Express BWI West for the 1st time in September.

1. Some of the staff need to be re-trained on how to deliver great customer service. Didn't meet 1 friendly staff member and no one smiled the whole time I was there. Additionally the front desk staff
appeared to get bogged down with phone questions and making reservations and guests are left standing waiting to check in, etc. while the staff is on the phone ofr long periods.

2. The Express breakfast area is a "train wreck". On a busy weekend you will find the seating area space is way too small for a crowded breakfast. People are almost stacked on one another with tables and chairs packed into this tiny little area with little to no room to manuver around. On a positive note they have "BACON" which isn't found at Marriott Residence Inn properties and the breakfast has a well balanced variety.

3. Also on a positive note is their complimentary shuttle service. It makes no sense for the Marriott properties in this same area to "NOT" offer complimentary shuttle service. They are shooting themselves in the foot and loosing valuable customers. Holiday Inn and Hilton properties will gain from this ammenity and Marriott will loose out. The shuttle service at this location is excellent.

4. I saved the best for last--The rooms are large and nicely decorated, clean and fresh and the beds are quite comfortable. The tub/shower seems a bit smaller than most hotels but the bathrooms were clean and very nice.

Based on my overall assessment, I would return to this property if they can straighten out their customer service issues and the poorly arranged breakfast area.

Room Tip: Choose rooms on the 5th floor corners for quieter areas.

Dear Kdmspecial,

Thank you for taking time out of your busy day to leave us a comprehensive review. I appreciate the positive remarks on our hotel shuttle service and rooms. However, I am sorry that you received staff service and breakfast selections that was less-than-satisfactory.

We stayed here before taking off on our honeymoon and Holiday Inn Express took a lot of worries off our hands. They offer a park and fly option where you can stay the night and park your car up to 14 days all for about $100, which is much easier than staying home 30 minutes away, driving and dealing with traffic, finding a parking spot and then waiting for the shuttle to come get you. HIE had a shuttle that we scheduled to take us to our airline check-in area and then they came and picked us up when we got back. Will defiantly do this for anymore early morning flights I have. As always, the hotel staff was very kind and the hotel was clean and the breakfast was great!

Arrived late evening and we were greeted by a friendly staff with a quick check in. Room very clean and comfortable. The hotel was well kept and brightly lit. The morining breakfast offered a good variety of foods and was well attented to by staff. Located within minutes of 295, BWI, and around the corner from the huge Arundel Mills Shopping Center. There is a Denny's in the front lot which is open late night. You will be pleased if you book this hotel.

Room Tip: This is a 5 floor hotel and I can't imagine a bad room.

I attended a WOE Women of Excellence Fellowship conference at the hotel and everything was great. The conference was in the evening and the front desk was willing to go beyond the call of duty to make sure we had everything we needed. Breakfast was good and hot. They had biscuits and gravy….. WOW, it has been some years since I had good biscuits and gravy. They had pancakes as well. The dining area was clean and well attended too.

Room Tip: the room was quite and very clean

I stayed at this hotel for a weekend so I could be near to an elderly relative. This location was perfect! Not only was I just a five minute drive from my relative, the proximity to the outlet mall and airport was perfect. I was accomodated without issue when I asked for a different room away from noise. The room was just that....quiet! It was also very clean and comfortable. Parking was no problem, even though the hotel was quite full. The only downside I could find was the breakfast. If you're not an early riser you're out of luck!

Room Tip: Avoid a room on the first floor near the exercise room. There is a swinging door off the lobby that...
