We recently made a trip to northern Minnesota for a wedding. Since I am a member of the Holiday Inn Priority Club Rewards Program, I decided to book our room at the Holiday Inn Express in town. I have always had good experiences when I stay at a Holiday Inn Express – and this time was no different.
I called ahead and asked for an early check in – which they couldn’t guarantee – but they were able to accommodate when we arrived. I had also requested a crib for my daughter and they were able to get one to us within 5 minutes of our check in.
The room we stayed in was a King size Jacuzzi room. It had a king size bed, TV, chair, desk, and a Jacuzzi right in the room. There was also a nice sized bathroom which included the standard amenities (shampoo, body wash, etc).
I wasn’t a fan of the heater – it was difficult to adjust the temperature easily. When we went to bed it was pretty cold and then I woke up in the middle of the night steaming hot! But then again – many hotels have this same problem.
They did offer a good continental breakfast which was included in the price of the room. Others in my extended family stayed at a more expensive hotel in town and wished they would have had the breakfast that we received rather than their limited offerings.
This stay didn’t change my perceptions of Holiday Inn Express as a great choice for a hotel!
