Before I begin with the not-so-great aspects of this hotel, I want to start by stating that this Holiday Inn Express is one of the nicest no-frills (non-luxury) hotels I have been to in quite some time. The use of marble (and other stones) throughout the property, coupled with its relatively new decor (the property is fairly new) was very pleasant. The staff were nothing but polite and courteous during our stay. The continental plus breakfast was adequate, if not inspired -- it filled the void, but that was about it.
Having said that, I would not recommend this property. The rooms were nice, perhaps a little larger than the norm, but in a hotel I need two things: a hot shower and a comfortable bed; the former was accomodated, the latter was not. The bed was one of the firmest I have ever attempted to sleep on (and I like firmer beds, as compared to my wife). Niether my wife nor I were able to sleep more than a couple of hours at a time over the course of our two night stay. That's it, really. It was an uncomfortable bed. But at a rack rate of $120/night (which is unconscionable for this level of property -- in the last year, I've stayed at the Intercontinental in Houston for less!!!) the room was completely and totally unacceptable. In retrospect, I should have mentioned my concerns to management after the first night, but out stay was a busy one and it did not occur until after we left the property. Having said that, there is absolutely no excuse for such a new property to have such unforgiving bedding.
BTW, if you are considering the Super 8 that is right next door to the Holiday Inn Express, I have heard some horror stories there as well, for only a few dollars less.
