A short distance from I-235 this Holiday Inn Express sits in the middle of a neighborhood of some faded glory, close to Drake. The service was excellent and we both received a goody bag for being Priority Club members. Beds comfy, amenities typical but nice as was the breakfast. For under $90 a great deal!
