Shared a room with a colleague for a conference being held about 10 minutes away (the conference location was full). It was a great decision - the price was significantly less than the actual
conference location, and I imagine the service was just as good. The complimentary breakfast is excellent - the quality of the coffee impressed me - and helps you start the day right. Room was clean and quiet - the only concern was that the lights from outside the hotel were rather bright, even with the curtains drawn. I suspect that's not a problem if your room isn't on the ground floor, though.
Overall, a great experience, and I look forward to staying at the Holiday Inn Express [Less]
