My daughter and I stayed her for a quick spring break trip. Just an average Holiday Inn express. Very friendly staff. Breakfast is fine and what you would expect. Very convenient location to most everything.

Our park and cruise experience with Holiday Inn Express couldn't have gone better! Leila and Nicole provided impeccable customer service during our stay, especially when Nicole delivered makeup wipes I'd requested straight to my door after I'd left mine back home! The newly renovated rooms are lovely-very modernistic, bright, and spacious. Also, the beds were hands down the most comfortable...

Being greeted by 'Nicole' at Reception was the beginning of a great night's stay! She showed us nearby locations to get something to eat and shop. Our room was excellent - I like it to be very warm and the heater as well as the shower worked great (often in hotels they don't). Breakfast was very good even offering omelettes...
