“Who knew?”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 28, 2013

Very pleasantly surprised. Usually use Hampton Inn, but it was full. HIE staff was very friendly and efficient; beds comfy; choice of firm/soft pillows (hooray!); breakfast better than Hampton (got love those cinnamon buns!) and exceptional service in breakfast room. All in all -- what's not to love? Only minus (?) was that the A/C was very loud, but it did drown out flight noise, so maybe it's actually a plus. Will definitely try a HIE again.

Nice hotel. Wednesdays they have a managers reception. Van service to BWI airport. Van runs 24/7. Gym. Nice breakfast. Good place to stay if you have a early flight.
Only thing I didn't like was there was no coffee before I got on the shuttle.

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,

It is IHG's goal to consistently provide superior service and accommodations and your comments are very important to us. The feedback we receive from our valued guests, like you, enables us to target problem areas and take the necessary actions to ensure similar situations can be avoided in the future.

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.
