Yes, Virginia, there is a hotel here Jun 02, 2017
A standard Holiday Inn Express experience for the most part, which is the payoff for me. The chain offers nothing spectacular, but I rely on the consistency of offerings, which always seems to include remarkably competent and friendly service from every associate.

There were a few wrinkles, but nothing catastrophic. I encountered the first hiccup at arrival. After turning off the main road where I saw the Holiday Inn Express sign, I was confronted by expansive, utterly deserted parking lot. There was a huge building at the far end of the lot with no windows or lights. Good heavens, had they recently gone out of business? Of course I quickly dismissed this as nonsense as I had only booked the room a week earlier, but approached the building a bit warily.

I only needed to turn the corner of the structure to witness the typical lobby pull-up, well-lit with plenty of cars littering the lot on this side. Checking in, the front desk attendant quickly explained the back end (actually the front end since it faces the only entrance) was an attached banquet hall. The next night there was a huge wedding reception and what had been a suspiciously abandoned parking lot became packed to the rafters.

Foible #2 was location of the breakfast buffet. Let me begin by expressing my delight with the complimentary breakfast buffets offered by this chain: the food selection is broad and virtually identical everywhere (and believe me, I have lodged at many different locations). Being diabetic, knowing what to expect in the way of foodstuffs is a tremendous relief. Usually the breakfast nook is adjacent to the lobby or nearby, but not so here. The breakfast room was at the very end of an extremely lengthy hallway and no signs were posted indicating whereabouts. Fortunately I asked at the front desk and they instructed me where to take a left and a right or I would have been lost!

Those tiny nuisances aside, I had been upgraded to a complimentary suite and moved in with gratitude for the bonus space (small living room). Refrigerator, microwave, usual complement of toiletries and were all present and everything was typically spotless. Once again, a dependable value.

Was the upgrade granted due to having status with IHG?
