When the second printer in the business office went down, Desiree was incredibly helpful in assisting me print some much needed pages for shipping our company's gear. She went above and beyond.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by patriciae370 Middle of the road hotel. Not up to expectations.
We booked an executive king suite. It turned out to be just a regular room with a small refrigerator and a microwave. Not what I expect in a suite. This was supposed to be a concierge floor but it was not no amenities. i am a platinum member but the staff did not seem to know what that was. The room was very clean and the cleaning staff did a great job with that. The women who worked the breakfast were exceptional. Tables were cleaned off just as soon as they were vacated, They even came around and removed the dirty dishes for us. Breakfast bar was always well filled. They were the high point of the stay. Pool was closed for repair most of the time.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Harley72 Where do I begin?
OK, so first of all, I am a Platinum Elite member and stay at IHG hotels almost exclusively. I've stayed at good and bad IHG properties. This one is in the poor group. There are 4 members in my family so I usually try to book the biggest room available. For this stay, I booked "Executive Suite" with 2 beds and a pull out sofa sleeper. This "Executive Suite" equates to them taking 2 regular rooms that have an adjoining door and calling that a suite. They took one of the rooms, put a couch in it and a chair. They converted the bathroom into a mini kitchen (loosely termed, as it had a microwave and mini fridge, which most other rooms have too). The other room had 2 double beds! Who uses double beds anymore??? How are 2 grown adults supposed to sleep on a double bed??? Not only that, my wife and I looked at the mattresses, and they look like $49.95 mattresses from some back alley outlet. They sleep like that too. The mini kitchen had no table or chairs. When I checked in, she assured me this room would sleep 6 people. REALLY! AND, if this room sleeps 6, then why only put 3 sets of towels in the bathroom. There was no store in this HI either. I've never seen that. This hotel will be a stay of last resort if we are in that area again. It may be fine if you are single to stay here, but the room and the price for my family was not appropriate.

Our stay here was a great choice. I never stayed in a hotel this quiet. No doors being slammed, no noise from other rooms and no problems with the room. I would recommend this hotel to anyone.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Lizagator Wonderful Plano location
We loved the location and this would have been at least a four star stay, but they could not fix the toilet in our room. We called three different days.
They were very apologetic, but they just did not get it fixed. All kinds of reasons from the tools were put away to messing with it and seeming to hope that would fix it.

This Holiday Inn Express is a bit hidden from the main thoroughfares, which makes it a bit more quiet and comfortable. I was recognized as a PC member. All other amenities I used were good - USA Today delivered to room; breakfast in a comfortable setting, etc. All was what is to be expected from a HI-Express. I would recommend this property.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by JeffMD Not As Good As Most Properties In This Chain
Most HIE are nicer than this one and I expect more but for a guy by himself on a business trip this place is fine. Carpet is old. There was an obvious stain on the sofa. Property is obviously older than most HIE which my family stays at wherever we go on vacation.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Ralph1515 No Doubt The Best of the Best!!!!
I have stayed at a lot of hotels including Holiday Inn's and I have to say this hotel is by far the best. From the General Manager on down to the front desk people, to the women that do such a wonderful job with the breakfast I tip my hat off to all of you and will never stay anywhere else when I'm in Dallas. Please keep up the superb service you guys and gals are GREAT!!!!!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by txbevo85 Decent stay for price
Pros: My room was comfortable and quiet, the AC did not get too cold or not cold enough, the hot tub was relaxing and the employees are friendly.
Cons: Breakfast options are limited for those who either have food allergies or are lactose intolerant. No soy or almond milk, and the only protein substitute for those with milk or egg allergies was peanut butter served in small packets. Too many refined carb options, no healthy alternatives like tofu, hot oatmeal, soy or almond milk, etc. The hot tub, while a very nice feature, had no light in the tub or outside it, making for a somewhat creepy, dark feeling.

Rooms were very comfortable, breakfast was great and the gals working there were as well. Front desk people were fantastic with the exception of the desk manager was a bit on the unfriendly side. Overall experience was by far a top notch hotel and would very much recommend to anyone.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by NJMom Pretty nice
When we arrived at the front desk I was told that we had been upgraded to a suite. It absolutely was a very nice surprise. I have been traveling cross country and staying at other Holiday Inns so I had expected to see the place updated but it had not been. I have to say that is was very clean, though.
The towels were not soft like the other places I have stayed in recently and some smelled like cigarette smoke. The beds were old and not comfortable at all and the heater/air conditioner made a lot of noise when in use. Thankfully, it wasn't too hot or cold so I could leave it off through the night.
The staff was extremely nice and helpful but I did not know what was being served for breakfast. I would suggest some signs to identify the food. One of the egg items had some type of stuffing but I had no idea what it was wrapped around. There could have been more coffee available, as well.
All in all I would definitely stay there again if I'm in the area and would recommend it to others.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by JMW58 room smelled, small beds.
Even though advertised as being smoke-free hotel, our room smelled of 'residual' smoke. very disappointing, especially since husband & I are very bothered by smoke. granddaughter even thought it smelled 'unclean'. double beds vs. queen beds was a negative.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by WendyC Awesome experience
When I checked into the hotel I found out that I had been upgraded to a suite! I asked why, and was told they randomly select people to be upgraded.
The suite was large (2 rooms combined) and very comfortable. There was a kitchenette with a microwave and refrigerator.
My only complaint is that I would have liked a variety of fruit to be available for breakfast. (The only fruit was bananas).
As an added bonus, I ran into Temple Grandin in the lobby. What a gracious woman!

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Cookla No HD TV
I have stayed here a number of times over the last 18 months because our grandchildren live very close. They have been telling me since the first time i stayed there that HD TV will be coming very soon. Even though they have completely re-modeled, they still have those crummy, out of date TV sets. Other than that, the hotel is really good. Comfortable beds, nice and roomy, free Wi-Fi. The breakfast is the same as you will find at any Holiday Inn Express. I had an experience this time that i had never had before. Between 10:00 and 10:30 i called the front desk twice - no answer. I went down to the front desk - no one there. Glad there was no emergency.

I check in on 2-5-2013 at 5PM, at 6:30 PM was notified of a family emergency and had to rush home. Desk clerk said no problem, would not be charged for room. They charged me but at a reduced "Day" use rate. I've stayed at this hotel over a dozen times in the last couple years.

The hotel was above average, but great for the price.

We truly enjoyed our stay in Plano at the Holiday Inn. The desk people were very nice and able to help us accommodate our family of 5. The hotel was clean and affordable as well as convenient to local stores, restaurants, and attractions. I would stay here again.
