I wanted to give this an excellent rating and came very close to it. The facility has been renovated and is lovely. The manager and the staff are very accommodating and efficient. The breakfast is pretty darn good for this price point and apparently others staying at the hotel agreed as the eating area can get packed. The rooms are clean and well maintained. The fresh cookies at 7:00 pm are EXCELLENT.
The reasons I did not give it an excellent and these are mainly personal reasons: the towels could be a bit thicker for the room price - did not feel like "saving" them for the next day, would rather get fresh ones. The exercise room is a complete joke - extremely tiny and the meager pieces of equipment are crammed in "cheek to jowl". Thankfully we were there in warm weather and I could walk/jog outside. There is no guest laundry. Only one elevator and it is slow.
It is within walking distance of the Alliant Center. There are biking, walking, jogging trails right next to the hotel. However, there only close restaurant is the Sheraton Hotel next door and that is pricey. Some restaurants will deliver, ask the front desk.
Please note, this property is changing from a Holiday Inn Express to another franchise in the fall of 2014. There is a new Holiday Inn Express being built down the street.
