This hotel is great for location. You are near the stadium and the shuttle can take you to International Mall for shopping. Lots of good restaurants along Dale Mabry. As for the property itself, it sits back off the highway behind a closed steakhouse. The staff is efficient but not overly friendly. There is a good breakfast each morning and a passable happy hour with food in the late afternoon. I found it odd that they offer only beer or soft drinks, no wine.
The room was clean, well equipped, but it appeared that everything was cheap. Cheap soap, small plastic glasses, worn towels. Instead of Holiday Inn Express, it had more of a DaysInn feel. If you are going to stay here, I recommend that you do so for location.
Interesting that Holiday Inn still doesn't get that Hilton and Marriott have really upgraded the guest experience for a few dollars more. Don't they ever check out their competition?
