Hi GeenaG4me, While I'm glad you liked our room amenities and happy hour, I'm disappointed to hear that you were not able to enjoy your stay due to the issues you had with our rooms, housekeeping staff, breakfast selection and parking. Our goal is to provide a trouble-free stay, and what you described certainly fell short of that. I've noted your feedback and shared this with the hotel. They will make sure that proper actions are taken so similar situations can be avoided. In spite of the troubles, we look forward to hosting you again for a chance to provide you with a much better experience. Thanks for choosing to stay with us! Regards, Joel A Case Manager IHGService

This is a solid Holiday Inn Express. They are conveniently located near Emory University and the CDC giving them year round access to a steady supply of customers. In turn, they can drive rate charging almost $200 a night. I do like this hotel. I especially like the staff.
