Guest Reviews

Rated 4.3 out of 5 by 187 reviewers.
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by a lot to be desired While I have used HI Express for many years, this one was a bit of a disappointment. The fitness room was not available, the lobby was under construction and there were no toilet paper holders in our room. Seems a bit excessive to charge whatever I paid for such depleted amenities. Let's be real, a toilet paper holder! Really, how difficult is that to coordinate. Seems like there should have been a serious reduction in charges, at least equivalent to the missing items June 30, 2015
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Air Conditioner did not work Dear Sirs, The air conditioner did not work, the room was so hot I had to sleep next to the air conditioner in the hall way. Staff stated there were no open rooms available. Iron did not work. Requested and received a different iron. Windows did not open. Requested my money back and night manager (Jake) stated he would give me 10,000 points of credit on my Priority Club account. Have not seen that credit. Very unhappy with HI at this location.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Wonderful accomodations! The room was clean, the bed was awesome and the pillows were great! June 26, 2015
