We have been to this HI express several times over 10 years. We last stayed here 2 years ago. There must be new management because the place is rundown. The room smelt like cigarettes and alcohol. The room was not “fresh”. Additionally, I work from the hotel room. I have uploaded the type of work chair I was able to work on. Some of the staff were rude and did not represent the hospitality that we are used to from holiday inn

This hotel was awful. Dirty, musty, and the rooms look like they haven't been given a good cleaning in years. The minute you walk off the elevator you realize what bad shape this hotel is in. The room smelled horrible and the a/c barely worked. The bathroom had mold in it and we were given 2 towels for 4 people. When I asked for more, they told me they didn't have enough. I would definitely look for other options. There are plenty of newer and new hotels in that area. I would have never reserved this place if it weren't for the phony 4.5 star review. Stayed here 1 night and could not wait to high tail it out of there. Did I mention the fact that they charged me $400+ for 1 night in a "suite?" I'm doing you a favor by posting this review. It was not a good experience.

I booked this room at 1:30 and requested a check-in at 4:00 to be close to my dying father in hospice care. I received confirmation of this by email. When I arrived at the front desk to check in I was rudely told by Karen that the room would not be ready for THREE hours. Other irate patrons were waiting in the lobby and said they had also been waiting for hours and Karen had been arguing with them. I said I understand and would just cancel and find another place since they seemed overwhelmed. She said I could not cancel at first but then when I reminded her I just booked it two hours ago she reluctantly agreed and began to read the confirmation number of the cancellation. I asked to please have a printed copy and she replied "no". I found this unusual and asked why and she replied because she didn't know how. I then asked her to please repeat the confirmation number again and she said she could not because she had already deleted it from the system. I asked to speak with a manager and she refused. I asked her last name and she refused. I have literally never had such a bizarre, unprofessional and incompetent experience with any hotel employee, and I travel frequently.

Awful stay at this hotel could not honestly recommend this at all, my family stayed for 2 nights after the first evening the toilet blocked, the next morning I asked for it to be cleared and was offered a plunger. After a full day it looked like maintenance had come and taken a huge dump in the toilet. Was promised it would be sorted, went out to dinner came back still not done. I have 2 small kids, room stinks of crap, nobody can go a toilet. Was told it would be another hour as the guy who can fix it has just turned up when I said I had 2 small kids was told they will get to me when they can, so a hotel blocked toilet for a full day. Just not good enough all around as someone that travels for a living I will certainly make my feelings about this brand known
