Just got back - here's a quick review:
We enjoyed a half-day of skiing at Whitefish and were elated to find the accomodations at the Holiday Inn Express were just wonderful.
Check in was a breeze on this long-weekend. We had booked the previous night (Friday) and they still had room for us (Sat) likely due to the fact the hotel is fairly new and not well known yet. Upon arrival it almost seemed like they were waiting for us! Great service. Professional and very warm and inviting reception.
Rooms are spacious, TV is a nice large screen, nice leather chair for working at the desk if you were on a conference or a work trip. Room for your laptop and peripherals if necessary.
Large washrooms, great water pressure in shower, hairdryer, etc. All the amenities of home. Of course the coffee is, well, like hotel in-room coffee. Not great.
Nice large leather lounger in the room and a nice door to go outside and enjoy the evening air. We were on the main floor.
Enjoyed the hot tub, good temperature. Lots of kids and families in the pool area looking like they were having fun. In honour of Valentine's Day chocolate covered strawberries were served in the lobby at 7:00pm. We lingered around the fireplace and enjoyed the company of our friends who were also there. The front desk receptionist asked if we wanted the rest of the strawberries. They weren't chocolate covered (they were gone) and so she graciously brought us a nice plate of strawberries. Very, very thoughtful of her.
We had a wonderful, large king size bed and it was cozy, linen was soft and comfortable. My only recommendation is they should also have king size pillows to match the bed.
The included breakfast is really nice. All the food was well-prepared and stocked up. Nice to have scrambled eggs included with the regular fare for breakfast. Great coffee here!
We returned for a full day of skiing to Whitefish with our tummys full and feeling well rested. Big Tip: Go to Costco and get the Whitefish reduced ski passes. We bought the Whitefish lift passes for 4 and it was approximately $48/person and included a 25% reduced ski rentals and lesson if you needed it.
So go and have fun at the Holiday Inn Express! You'll sleep in heaven!
