The stay was ok.

Pros: We stayed at this same hotel back in May of 2022 and when I checked in I asked if all of the rooms were the same and was told yes. They are not all the same, the room we had back in May was much bigger and more comfortable than the one we had.
Cons: The beds were not comfortable at all and the room was way smaller than the one we had back in May.

Poor
It was highly disappointing.

Pros: It was located close to everything.
Cons: It was very hot in the rooms unless you were standing right by the AC. It was hot in the hallways and lobby. The elevator was probably the worse. Also, the parking garage is the worst I have ever experienced. Too tight. Had to back up and reverse a little to get around every single turn. Would never stay here again.

It was the worst hotel...

Pros: Nothing really stood out to my attention.
Cons: Worst parking structure I have ever been to in my life. Super compact. Not enough seats for breakfast, front end staff wasn’t the friendlist, and the LACK OF A/C. 40 minutes just to check in.

About Holiday Inn Express Hotel By InterContinental Brand Hotels

The Holiday Inn Express Hotel is a part of the InterContinental Hotels Group family. It is a mid-priced hotel chain that caters to the “upper economy”. Tagged as an “express” hotel, it focuses on offering limited services at a reasonable price. The amenities are convenient and practical and target business travels and tourists on short-term stays. As of September 2018, there are 2,687 Holiday Inn Express hotels throughout the world with over 274,000 rooms.

The first Holiday Inn Express locations opened in the United States in 1991. By 1998, the brand created such an amazing campaign ad called “Stay Smart” which clicked and helped skyrocket the hotel’s success. Originally, the first few Holiday Inn Express properties were the no-frills type hotels. Newer Holiday Inn Express hotels now offer most of the amenities that its higher-end counterpart offers.

There are four hotels in the Holiday Inn family of brands. These include the Holiday Inn, Holiday Inn Express, Holiday Inn Resort, and Holiday Inn Club Vacations. The Holiday Inn Express is different from the other brands in its style. Typically, the hotels are built from corporate architectural stereotypes with each hotel consisting of 60 to 80 rooms and a mix of suites. The Express hotel chain has seen a huge success so much so that majority of the Holiday Inn Express hotels are either brand new or newly renovated. Holiday Inn Express hotels also differ in its location because the chain is typically positioned in suburbs and freeways.

The stay was ok.

Pros: We stayed at this same hotel back in May of 2022 and when I checked in I asked if all of the rooms were the same and was told yes. They are not all the same, the room we had back in May was much bigger and more comfortable than the one we had.
Cons: The beds were not comfortable at all and the room was way smaller than the one we had back in May.

It was highly disappointing.

Pros: It was located close to everything.
Cons: It was very hot in the rooms unless you were standing right by the AC. It was hot in the hallways and lobby. The elevator was probably the worse. Also, the parking garage is the worst I have ever experienced. Too tight. Had to back up and reverse a little to get around every single turn. Would never stay here again.
