Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 Nice, new hotel
The Hickory Mart Holiday Inn opened in June, and must be an example of the next generation of Holiday Inn Express hotels.
Part of the breakfast room is in the lobby, and so you get a feeling of home right when you walk in. I can't explain this, but I can assure you that it felt homey.
The furniture throughout was new and fresh. The hotel chain has chosen colors that I like, bright, jewel colors for the lobby and darker, richer colors for the room. Again, furniture in the room was new and comfortable.
The A/C unit worked well (!!!), the bed was comfy, TV channels were fine, and the toilet was not one of those low ones. I was really hoping for a bath, but there was only a shower. That was my only complaint.
Also, the hotel was pricey for me, at about $125. I am an artist, and I usually stay in hotels that are much, much cheaper - but nowhere near as nice.
Breakfast was fine, regular hotel fare. I wish hotels would start including a gluten-free bread product with breakfast.

I travel for work and stay at IHG hotels often. I enjoyed the complimentary fresh cookies that would greet me upon arrival. I am sad to have learned that it is no longer common practice to have these available to customers. This Holiday Inn Express staff enabled my visit to NC to be a very enjoyable one.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by niceguyfromraleigh great stay!
This is a brand new hotel with a wonderful staff and accommodations! I thoroughly enjoyed my stay there, and would absolutely stay there again the next time I am in town.
While everyone I came into contact with was friendly and helpful, one staff member really stood out: Leann.
She was VERY helpful in making my stay enjoyable by taking the time to look up highway conditions both Saturday and Sunday, as well as recommending places to go see while I was there. She also was friendly, polite, and professional, and is no doubt a great asset to the hotel!
Overall, I had a great experience and highly recommend this hotel!
