Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by MissT30 Comfortable Bed but very small room
The room was very clean and the bed was comfortable. The room,bathroom and elevator was very small for the price paid a night for the room. This is was the smallest king suite I have stayed in ever in a holiday inn express. I like the location since it was very close to the Phillips Arena and CNN, and Coca Cola.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Calif_Visitor Staff was terrific, the room not so much.
The staff was absolutely the best and it was only them that made it an okay vacation. The rooms however are too small and very much over priced, but clean! Whole place looks like it is still being updated but the quality of the craftsmanship is very poor. increase the size of the rooms, decrease the number of rooms, upgrade the decor and remodel to remove the look of "just add paint and everything is better" because it's not. Just take a gander at the where the ceiling meets the walls, see through the paint to the walls just to name a couple of very noticeable items. I would not stay there again.
Breakfast not at all appealing nor tasty. But you can't go wrong with cereal and milk so stick to that.
Now the staff, they were friendly, accommodating and very helpful. Recommended a great restaurant ! Really enjoyed our interactions with them.

Walking minutes from most everything. We had a large clean room, a separate sitting/office area, each with it's own t v, frig, coffee/tea, and microwave. Breakfast bar had a good selection, great coffee.
This is an older hotel that's been redesigned to fit the HIExpress profile. A few things still needed to be looked into: vessel sinks with very little counter space are impractical, no place to put accessories for two people. Hot water took 5 minutes to reach the 8th floor, a waste of water. Not ONE elevator can hold a luggage cart and three guests. Music in the lobby was loud, made it hard the hold a conversation. Valet parking is the only way to go, but BEWARE it's $25. a day. Once they tweek a few things, this site will be up to par with their "highway" hotels.
