While the hotel won't impress your spouse/friend it delivers a comfortable stay for the low-mid hotel range.
Travelling for business I normally get to stay in one of the 4-5 star chains but rooms were full and I have liked the good experience that Holiday Inn Express had provide before, so I gave it a try.
I really like that this mid level hotels do not nickel and dime you and you get wifi, breakfast, paper and other necessities included in your room.
The Atlanta hotel was no different: it delivered a good room, good wifi with plenty of bandwidth, decent warm breakfast, complementary toiletry that I had forgotten...all of the above coming for a fee in a 5 star hotel...
This stay surpassed my expectations in some areas and felt short in other. here is more:
The room and service surpassed my expectations. The room was very spacious, decorated well above the hotel class (marble countertops and shower, business desk with leather chair, direct TV with many channels, etc..). The beds are pretty firm at first but I woke up rested and with no back pain whatsoever. The room was quite and the services was very courteous.
It fell short in the general appearance of the hotel outside of the room. The corridors and elevators were a bit dirty, the reception very simple and the entrance of the hotel is situated in a anonymous small street mainly featuring parking lots. There was no view, but rather a brick wall outside my window.
There is definitely no glamour as you walk in from the street and first impression can be disappointing.
There is no restaurant or food for purchase in the hotel but there are many restaurants in the surroundings and it seems few places that will deliver to your room.
The location is perfect, two blocks from centennial park, 1 block from all the major 5 star hotels and half a mile (if that) from the convention center.
In my opinion, if you are looking for an honest room, convenient location and comfortable stay, I think this is a good place. If you want to impress, look elsewhere.
