My wife and I selected this hotel based on its proximity to the HSBC Arena and price. We were in town to see the World Junior Hockey Championships and were generally satisfied with the hotel and room.
The hotel is no longer a Holiday Inn Express. During our stay it was called Galleria Inn & Suites but I noticed they plan to convert it to a Best Western in the near future. The complimentary breakfast was above average and the staff were pleasant. The housekeeping staff were very friendly and went out of there way to clean our room on very short notice on Dec 31. We had friends staying in our room while we returned home to see the kids for New Years Eve. Our friends arrived at about the same time I handed our door keys to the front desk so they quickly dispatched housekeeping to do our room immediately. We very much appreciate this type of service and I must say the housekeeping lady we had was very friendly.
We stayed in room 152 which is suite with a king size bed and a pull out sofa bed. We found the bed very comfortable and is definitely one of the best we have ever slept in. The mini kitchenette had a refrigerator, microwave and sink which met our needs nicely although we ate most meals out. The bath room was fairly large with a large stand up shower stall and no bath tub. We didn't mind this arrangement although some people may like a tub vs shower. During our stay, a maintenance employee asked if they could measure the bathroom vanity I assume for a planned future renovation.
I found the halls to be a little cool and the ice machine on the main floor quit working during our stay. Other than that, we had no problems.
