“Marisol Means Hospitality to the Fullest!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 24, 2013

I have stayed at this property numerous times over this past year when business brings me to town. Each of my stays has been excellent from the moment I stepped to the front desk to be greeted by the helpful, courteous, and friendly staff, to the early morning breakfast and efficient checkout. I commend the staff and management for making each stay a more like being at home!

As a flight industry professional I stay in hotels on a weekly basis. I booked this Holiday Inn Express for a 3 night stay in Fort Myers while visiting family and was not disappointed. The hotel was easy to get to from the airport and I found the hotel to be extremely clean. I wish other hotels that we stay at for business were as clean as this one was. The beds were very comfortable and I found Lea in the breakfast room to be delightful. She made sure that everything was always stocked and made time to chat with me each morning asking me how my stay was going. She really made me feel special and I noticed that she was just a genuine to the other hotel guests. I normally use Tripadvisor just for research but felt compelled to write a review after staying here. Thank you to the employees at this hotel for a great stay!!!!

Thank you for reviewing our property during your recent stay at our hotel in Ft. Myers. I have shared your review with Nicole, and she loves having those Boston teams in our facility! We can see her accent come out every time one of the groups come down, it's like a family reunion for her! We are glad you once again had a great stay with us, and look forward to your groups next tournament in the Fort Myers area. Also, don't forget Spring Training is coming soon, could be a great time to start booking for the Red Sox games....(Nicole also knows a time saving way to get into the stadium) Have a great holiday, we'll have your sparkling clean rooms ready for you!

I manage a men's and a Women's baseball team that stayed at the Holiday Inn -Forum from November 16 to the 24th. We had 50 people in our group, including friends, husbands, wives and some children. The group as a whole could not have had a better time due to the fact that the staff at the Holiday Inn were extremely helpful and cooperative. They could not have done more for my group as far as tending to their every need. Nicole Logan was the driving force behind all of this and her attention to every detail made our experience all the better.
She and her staff deserve all the credit and I would Highly recommend this hotel to anyone looking for a family style place to stay. Kevin M. Mgr. New England Red Sox

Recently stayed at this Holiday Inn Express and was very impressed with the staff and the accommodations. I was promptly greeted as an IHG Rewards member. The hotel is decorated very tastefully during this holiday season.
When my travels take me back to the Ft. Myers area, I will definitely be staying at the Holiday Inn Express @ the Forum.

This was another trip of many to the Fort Myers area. As usual, the staff at the Holiday Inn Express was exceptionally friendly. I am always welcomed back like I am an old friend who has been missed. This is without a doubt, the only place I will stay when in Fort Myers.

By the way, the tree in the breakfast area looks beautiful!
