Arrived early and had to wait until 3pm to get room. Read previous reviews and this hotel appears to stick with this policy rigidly. Really good central location with restaurant and shops on your doorstep. Felt safe here and neighborhood good. Initial thoughts were hotel was a little "dark" when I entered, unlike the more modern HIE's I have experienced...

The traffic is non stop and so is the noise from it. Although I had booked a river view room there was still a lot of traffic but by the second day I'd got used to it probably as I was so tired from the sightseeing! The hotel staff are friendly and efficient. Also there are hot drinks available downstairs...

I was a little a little questionable checking in Lobby seemed dated, not typical modern look of HIE. But, staff was very friendly and helpful. Got a large room with microwave, fridge, and coffee maker. Air handler was a little loud. Room was clean and bed comfortable. On site parking (23 per night)

Overall I thought it was a nice stay, especially since we had a mix up with the previous housing for this trip. We were able to get a room Wednesday night (no reservation) through Saturday morning. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The room was nicely clean as was the hotel. The only thing I would have liked better...

I needed to be at the Convention Center for a trade show. This is the biggest Holiday Inn Express that I've ever stayed in at 20 floors.

We have been in a number of cities and stayed at a number of Holiday Inns, and this one did not disappoint. The location was fabulous--just blocks from anything you want to do.
