Holiday Inn Express & Suites
Ranked #4 of 12 Hotels in Normal
Reviewed 9 April 2012

This hotel is so much nicer than what you would normally think of a Holiday Inn. Was just redone and the place is remarkable. The bed was extremely comfortable and the towels were as soft as any 4 star hotel. The location is what I loved about it - right near most everything you need but the breakfasts will keep me coming back. The room they serve it in is very comfortable and seems like you're sitting in your own house. Staff was friendly and the place is very clean.

Room Tip: I had the suite and it had a bedroom with double doors deviding the rooms. Very comforatable!

What a beautiful job they did updating this hotel. We stayed in a suite that had a large refrigerator, sink, microwave, and the cabinet had paper plates, plastic wear, and cups. Very comfortable couch that I sat on to late watching my own TV while my wife sleep in the bedroom with the glass doors closed. Meet my family for a great breakfast (free) in the breakfast room in the morning. Great Job!!

My wife and family stayed there this past week-end. Great location, breakfast was really good. Rooms look new and the staff has to be the best in downstate Illinois. We will be back.

Room Tip: All rooms are great !!!

Entering the lobby leaves a great first impression and it doesn't end there. We had a great overnight stay. The room was relaxing after a long day on the road and well fitted. The sleep quality would have been tops but for other guests who were inconsiderate when closing their room doors, but that happens everywhere. Why do adults have to let their room entry door slam shut??? Getting back on track here, we did not have one issue with our stay. The breakfast offerings were as expected and more than sufficient. I wouldn't hesitate to stay here again ... and probably will.

This hotel is so pretty, grand entrance with spiral staircase and grand piano in the lobby. Wonderful service from front desk and housekeeping. Rooms were very clean and tidy. No complaints here! Breakfast was fabulous and very nice staff. The pool/hot tub has a very tropical feeling and you really feel like your out of the Midwest!! I would recommend to anyone looking for a clean, quite, good location, and great staff hotel!
