We stayed with some friends for the night to enjoy the Main Strasse area. Although my husband and I have not stayed in a Holiday Inn for several years, this location was recommended by our friends. The location was very convenient and the room was clean and fairly well equipped. There was a very strong smoke smell in our room and a slight mildew smell in the bathroom. Also, our remote was not working. We called to ask for a new remote or have the batteries replaced and were told someone would be up right away. After waiting around for a while, nobody came, so when we went out, we expected to come back to a working remote. It did not happen. We did report the smell to the desk so as not to be charged for damaging the room.
When we checked out and mentioned these things, the clerk was very apologetic and offered us free breakfast coupons. Since we had already had breakfast and were leaving, we are hoping these coupons will work at another Holiday Inn Express.
This was not an inexpensive room at about $136 per weekday night, with taxes, and no breakfast included, which makes me think that is why we have shied away from Holiday Inns.
The area is great with lots of character and unique restaurants.
