Myself and my two boys traveled alone for the first time. When we entered the hotel at 2:00 am the desk clerk advised that they had overbooked, and had no more available rooms. This was upsetting to me, because I had reserved a room for over a month ago. The clerk advised that they had made arrangements for us at a different hotel down the street until the next morning. The next morning the hotel manager called me personally and said he would send over their shuttle to pick us up and that we would be staying in the presidential suite. So instead of the regular 1 room I had booked we stayed in the best 2 bdrm suite in the hotel! The staff was so friendly. The shuttle driver Rolando was very helpful and went out of his way to make sure we were picked up on time. He also had advice about the surrounding restaurants and the area in general. The end result to a situation that could have ruined our family vacation was great service! Thank you Holiday Inn Express for making our family vacation so comfortable!
