On a trip from upstate NY to Gettysburg we decided to stop in Corning to visit the museum. We decided to stay at the Holiday Inn Express as it was a few miles away from the museum and offered a package which included tickets to the Corning Museum. Upon arrival I thought we arrived to a brand new hotel only to be told it was 18 years old and recently renovated. The warm and inviting lobby boasted a flat panel TV and a fireplace; a nice place to escape to from your room. We were warmly greeted and registration was quick. The hotel had a simple "happy hour" in process with some cheese, crackers, nachos, and a fruit punch which help me take the hunger edge off until we had dinner.
Our room was very nice with ample desk and drawer space. The furnishings were beautiful and the bed very comfortable. Another nice touch is that our room had a refrigerator and a mini microwave. Nice for storing or heating up those leftovers!
Buffet breakfast was included and was about the norm that you would find in these type of hotels; yogurt, muffins, pancakes, eggs, sausage, etc.
I think this would be a great hotel to stay at if you wanted to get away with the kids and go to the Museum. The hotel did have a pool which we did not use but it looked nice and clean.
You could tell the owners/managers cared about this property and cared about their customers. On a final note, I did stay at The Ritz in DC just the week prior. I'm not comparing the Holiday Inn Express to the Ritz but I was more impressed by the Holiday Inn Express as they highly exceeded my expectations! Keep up the great work!
