The hotel staff is a very nice group of people; obviously well trained, very warm, cheerful, and welcoming. Breakfast is well done (usual fare of Holiday Inn Express). The room furnishings are up to date including flat-screen TV, micro-wave, and small fridge with one exception which I'll mention below. The facility is reasonably maintained; could use some paint and carpet in some areas. The real challenges I found that would have me stay elsewhere were: First is Hard Beds; the kind mattresses that hotels use to use in guest rooms when durability and length of mattress life were more important than guest comfort (certainly not the worst I have experienced, but not what you'd expect these days). Second is the lack of an exercise facility; I have an expectation that Holiday Inn should understand that when trapped in an airplane and/or car, and/or meetings most of the day that getting some exercise is mission critical to feeling human and staying alive. The last thing that I found to be a challenge for this hotel is that the game is about to be stepped-up to the next level by a brand new hotel being built just down the block: it appears it is going to be a Hampton Inn. If that is the brand being built, they are known for nice beds and fairly good exercise facilities.
This Holiday Inn Express is going to have to up their game in order to stay the leader in the neighborhood.
