Possibly the nicest Holiday Inn Express I've ever visited. This 5-story building on a main highway, 7 minutes free shuttle drive from the Leon/Guanajuato airport, encloses a full-height dining atrium and full-height pool area (get free pool towels from the reception desk). The free breakfast buffet starts at 6:30 a.m. and includes juice, coffee and tea (curiously - only chamomile; no black tea) eggs, bacon, refried beans, toast, jam, cereal (children's varieties; no bran selections) pastry, fruit, etc. A card on the table reminds guests that the tip is not included in the free meal. Our server cleared away plates and cutlery at the first sign of a pause in dining - a little too aggressive for me.
We ate dinner at the attached Applebees restaurant - nice enough; US prices and has a kids' playroom. We saw no other dining choices within walking distance.
The hotel room was large with a big bed and wonderfully comfortable linens. Each side had two pillows - one marked firm and one marked soft. The large flat-screen TV was easily pulled out of the cabinet and rotated slightly for better viewing from bed. The room key controlled the lights and air conditioning, so neither could be left running when you are out of the room. The ventilation system was loud - and noticeable when it kicked in at night. The hotel information binder has nothing about the pool or the business centre. Free wi-fi in the room worked perfectly.
The wake-up call was right on time; the shuttle to the airport very efficient. There were a lot of business people staying here. I'd stay here again in a heartbeat to avoid the traffic from Guanajuato or Leon to make a morning flight from the nearby airport.
