The hotel is new and very nice. Comfortable beds, plenty of room. The bathroom has a nice size shower, no tub, which worked for us. The staff was very helpful and offered assistance with everything we needed. The few drawbacks I had was, it was hard to find, not your usual Holiday Inn Express, don't look for a sign, just look for the cross street. Also, the parking. I usually drive a bigger Chevy pick up which would not fit in their parking garage, limited to about 6'6". The breakfast selection was a bit slim for what HIE usually has, maybe because it's so new? Only one of the two elevators worked which made it a longer wait especially in the morning when we were leaving. Overall, I would recommend this location and would definitely stay again, I'm sure things will work themselves out over time.
