“It was a little difficult to locate, but once I got there it was wonderful!”
Reviewed February 1, 2013

I will say that I am a big fan of IHG and usually prefer to stay at HI/HIE/CP properties when I can. My company only reimburses me the amount of their negotiated rate with another chain which I don't usually enjoy staying at and I pay the difference to stay with IHG.
This property is very nice for an HIE, the pool and hot tub are always perfect temp wise, never seem at all dirty, and I've never seen these amenities closed.
The breakfast is always very nice (LOVE the cinna rolls!) and the dairy products are as wonderful as you'd expect them to be in Wisconsin!
The rooms are always very nice (I've been upgraded to a corner room, which is larger and very thoughtful of the clerk, since I travel with training materials).
This is one of the cities I always have to rent a car in, and I've never had trouble parking.
I've never been told "no". Late checkout? No problem! Early checkin? No problem!
I've never met anyone there who didn't strike me absolutely loving what they do for a living. It's so refreshing!

Room Tip: I have never had a bad room. I liked the corner room I had a couple times, but that's because I...

The hotel was nice. Clean. We were able to get a very early check-in before an event at the Alliant Center. It was a great location for us. I usually use the fitness room at hotels, but this one was very small.....a long and skinny room. Kind of weird. (I skipped my workout.) The room did not have a microwave or refrigerator. The fan in the bathroom was quite loud. Breakfast was good, with many choices. I would stay at this hotel again, if I were going to the Alliant Center for an event. If location didn't matter, I probably wouldn't choose this hotel.

Spent two nights here for the OSU vs WI game, good location, easy cab ride to Regent St. and downtown. Rooms were clean and bed was firm as usual, we like soft but what can you do. Right off the highway. Breakfast was good and the employees were all very friendly and helpful. I would return if in the area again.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a lake view

I travel across the United States by car at least once a year. I travel solo, which can be boring, but to be traveling across the U.S. on the holidays is just plain dreary. I was so happy to find this hotel on Thanksgiving Day of 2012. The young man behind the counter (Vincent) was especially welcoming and we got into a long conversation about building websites. After being in a car for several thousand miles, it was a delight to actually talk to someone. He was extremely courteous and helped me locate an area of town where there might be a chance of something being open on Thanksgiving night. It turned out to be Perkins, but I got turkey and stuffing and pie! I love the Holiday Inn Express chain more than any other because they seem to always hire great people to work the desks. Thank you, Vincent! The hotel is spotless, quiet and easy to find.

This property is next to the Sheraton with the comfort of a 5 star hotel. The breakfast has a lot of choices and many of the pastries of fresh baked.

The rooms are cozy and quiet with soft towels. The hotel is about 2 miles from state street, but there are great places to run, walk or jog along the lake.

The University of Wisconsin is just a short drive and the freeway is very close, just a few minutes away.

The Airport is about 15 minutes away and there are plenty of restaurants just a short distance form the hotel.

Room Tip: All the rooms are quiet and if you tell the front desk what you want, they will go out of their way...

Very clean rooms. Attentive staff. Everything we needed for our Parent's Weekend stay for the U of W. Location relative to the University is very good. Really close to the Alliant Energy Center, so if you have an event there, consider the hotel.

This is a fairly typical holiday inn: clean, pleasant, good breakfast (included sausage patties and biscuits and gravy), good location. The room did have a strong smell and a wet spot on the carpet, must be from recent cleaning. A couple of free drinks are offered during happy hour. Recommended.
