Holiday Inn Express

Holiday Inn Express knows that comfort and convenience are top priorities on every traveler’s mind. That’s why they designed the Holiday Inn Express® Experience around your unique needs. Stylish accommodations and streamlined guest services help get you where you’re going, while signature bedroom and bathroom collections might give you a reason to stay behind.

Before you head out for your busy day, be sure to visit the free ExpressStart SM  Breakfast Bar to enjoy buffet-style hot breakfast favorites like scrambled eggs or omelets, bacon or sausage, and biscuits.  Selections rotated daily for variety.   You’ll also find traditional breakfast buffet items like cereal, yogurt, breads, 100% Arabica Smart Roast CoffeeSM and, of course, Express StartSM hot cinnamon rolls.

During your stay, you’ll enjoy free high-speed internet access in your room and access to eHost™ Online Concierge to find hotel and local area information. Work, surf the web, connect with friends, family and colleagues, and more from the comfort of your room.

Each SimplySmart® Guest Bathroom* features a state-of-the-art shower head, curved shower rod for more elbow room, fluffy cotton towels, and specially formulated toiletries – all those added touches of home, whether you’re starting your day or winding down in the evening.

The SimplySmart® Bedding Collection* provides clean, fresh, climate-appropriate linens and your choice of pillows to make your stay as much like home as possible. You won’t have to worry about being uncomfortable in a strange bed - you’ll be too busy sleeping.

As a guest of Holiday Inn Express® hotels or any other IHG hotel, you have the opportunity to earn Priority Club® points that you can redeem for hotel stays, airline miles and more. If you’re not already a member, join the Priority Club® program today!
