You can walk to Starbucks, shopping & several restaurants. Its quiet, clean offers a breakfast bar, etc. only thing is they use an air freshener in the common areas that smells too close to cigar smoke.

Thank you for taking the time to review our property on recent Fort Myers visit. It looks as though you are a frequent IHG Brand seeker, and we truly appreciate your brand loyalty!!! I must agree the Ambassador program is a great program and worth it. Dawn is a true service professional, and we are so lucky to have someone of her caliber working with us. I will share your wonderful comments and review with her this week. I hope that we will see you again in the near future, and appreciate your business.

I am a guest every week of the Forum traveling on business for over the past 7 months. The staff aways goes above and beyond to insure a comfortable stay. The managment Alexa(GM) and Dawn are some welcoming upon arrival. The rooms are clean and well kept. Beds and linen make for a wonderful nights sleep. Breakfast hot and yummy ! Also the front desk staff Kevin who helped with a billing issue was concerning through the whole process . Mia what a wonderful person, one night I came in very late a smell the baking of cookie. Unfortunately they were not ready to my dismay. But 15 min. later there was a knock on the door and to my surprise it was Mia with warm cookies, hand delivered ! Outstanding !!

Wow!! What a great review. Dawn is most definitely a wonderful employee and great with all of our guests as you can see from past reviews. Kevin and Mia are great as well making sure our guests are always a top priority. It is great to be part of a team that truly understands what it takes to provide superior customer service. We are glad that you as well as other members of your company consider us as your home away from home. And as always, we will keep those fresh cookies here for you! Hope to see you soon.

I was fortunate enough to stay at this Holiday Inn Express and has been the BEST one yet in my business travels. Betty, Carson & the manager were SO awesome. I asked about an area where I could set up 120 phones for my assistant and I to work on. It was like divine alignment of the stars- they happened to have a large party that day and had two long tables already set up in the dining area. Betty kept the coffee running and Carson brought some breakfast out a little earlier than usual (3 AM) so that we could eat before heading to a customer appointment. I can say that if I need to go to the Ft. Myers area again, I WILL BE STAYING HERE!!!
Side note: If there was a BEYOND EXCELLENT rating on the Service rating They would've gotten it.

Thank you guys for making a VERY LONG work night so much easier!!!

We normally stay in Naples, but tried something new this year and were very pleased. The beaches of Naples was still a short drive down the interstate so we could easily visit our favorites of past. Enjoyed the new location as well. The Hotel staff was great, friendly and attentive to our request. The Hotel was clean and the breakfast was great. Thank You for your hospitality!

My wife and I stay at this hotel on a regular basis, at least twice a month. We have business in Ft. Myers and two granddaughters as well. So my trips are combination of work and pleasure. I have found this hotel to be consistently exceptional in every respect. The staff bends over backwards to make our stay pleasant and trouble free. We request a suite on the second floor so we can take the steps with the grandkids instead of the elevator. We are always welcomed by the front desk staff and they always attempt to get us into the room(s) we request. They are aware that some of the groups who stay at the hotel on weekends, whether it be ball teams or "casino seniors" can be a bit much, but always try to give us a more quiet area to get some rest. Dawn usually lets me know what kind of weekend to expect. All I can say is "Bravo" to the staff, this includes the Guest Services Manager, Dawn; the front desk folks, Mia, Kevin, Carson and others; the cleaning crew; and food servers. We have had a couple of hitches which can accompany any hotel stay, but we enjoy staying at our "home away from home" when we can.
