Needing to spend the night in Fresno due to an 8:00 a.m. doctor’s appointment, I readily chose the Holiday Inn Express because 1) it’s one of my favorite chain hotels with the most wonderful staff; and 2) because of its proximity to the medical clinic.
What a splendid choice! Check-in was smooth and quick with the friendliest staff, who upgraded me to a King Suite. The other staff members I encountered were equally outgoing and pleasant – I really appreciate that when staying in a hotel. I've found that HI and HIE staff consistently go the extra mile to provide outstanding customer service.
The room was beautiful and spacious, much too much for one person, but greatly appreciated, and very quiet. The bed and bedding were extremely comfortable, as was the couch and chairs in the sitting area. The room also included a desk and chair, as well as a reading chair and ottoman, which I didn’t have the opportunity to use. Because I arrived later than I had hoped, I purchased fast food and ate it in the room, something that I don't ordinarily do, but I really enjoyed the experience, eating at the circular dining table for two while watching TV.
The bathroom was as beautiful as the room and perfectly outfitted. The only thing I would have wished for was a bit more light, but the two sconces located on either side of the mirror, in addition to being lovely, were adequate. All and all, this was a perfect choice and, because of the need for future medical treatment in Fresno, I will be returning to the Howard Street HIE in the near future.
