I do a lot of travelling for business, and always prefer Holiday Inn Express. This was my time staying at the Oakland Airport location, and I had the pleasure of staying at another great location.
The staff was very friendly, the room was clean, and barely heard the planes from the airport.
There were only a couple items I was displeased with. The first being the employee who checked me in did not offer to validate my parking ticket. Granted, it was posted on the ticket machine when I came in, but it was not very well lit and I did not notice the sign until the next day. I ended up having to pay more than I should have.
The second item was the qulaity of the internet. I was constantly having to reconnect, about every 30 minutes or so.
Overall, I would highly recommend this hotel, and will be one of my first choices if I'm in the area again. [Less]
