For a Holiday Inn Express, the rooms are extremely spacious and well appointed. The parking is easy and convenient although seems like half the spaces were marked "compact only" The lobby was modern, spacious and comfortable with a separate room used for breakfast. A step up from your average Holiday Inn Express. As others have pointed out, it's on the edge of downtown surrounded by manufacturing and warehouses. Not a lot right outside the hotel, but good and easy road access.
My one concern is that the elevators seemed slow even with a hotel which I didn't think was particularly full based on parking garage and breakfast room. With a full hotel, elevators might be a bit of a wait.
