I am a Priority Club member and am typically satisfied with the quality of the Holiday Inn Express hotels where I have stayed, but this particular hotel was below the standard. The lobby does not present the typical airy, open feeling and the one sliding door to enter did not leave a welcoming presence. The staff member was friendly and my reservation was ready.
I was hoping to enjoy the Final 4 Championship on a nice, flat screen TV, but an older model TV was in the room. I was also planning on completing some work that evening and one of the reasons I booked at a HI Express was that my previous stays at HI's always provided quick and easy access to the internet. The connection at this hotel required a password (called the front desk, supplied...no problem), but the connection was often dropped, slow response, etc. Finally just gave up and watched the game on the old TV.
The desk chair in the room was also extremely uncomfortable....appeared to be of just poor quality. The room did have a microwave and small refrigerator.
Breakfast was the typical HI Express, but the dining area was small and the food itself wouldn't rate as one of the better breakfast that I have had at an HIEx. This hotel is also located along a shopping district and so if you enjoy getting out for a walk, there isn't an easy pathway to a walking area.
Room was clean, bed and pillows were fine, but the overall experience isn't what I typically enjoy at this brand of hotel.
