AABurnett, It would have been nice to hear that you had a perfect stay, but I recognized it wasn't possible because of the renovations during your visit and the issues you had with our facilities and amenities. What you have stated here is definitely not the experience we want for you. To make sure the property lives up to the Holiday Inn Express standards, I've alerted their management about your feedback for review. They will make sure that proper actions are taken so this doesn't happen again. I appreciate you as our guest. How about you give us another try? We'll make sure it'll be a lot better next time. All the best, Joel A Case Manager IHGService
