Located in Vancouver, Washington, The Holiday Inn Express
Hotel and Suites is a fantastic place to stay for a relaxing
weekend away or a full vacation. Located minutes away
from both downtown Vancouver and Portland Oregon,
the hotel is well suited to both business and relaxation.
Upon check-in, the staff was extremely welcoming and helpful, offering us a map of various points
of interest nearby as well as directions to a nearby restaurant
that we had asked about. Therewere also fresh apples and
cookies available as well as coffeein the lobby.
Upon entering our room, we found it was not only clean and very inviting but also had a very peaceful and quiet setting which made it an ideal place to relax after a very busy day.
From the spacious room that had a comfortable living room area complete with a couch, table and television,
there was also a nook that was set apart from the main room which featured a second television, table, and
comfortable chair which my wife found to be a nice area to put her feet up and read.
The bedroom was spacious and also included a television as well as a phone, stereo, clock
radio and ample closet space. I was happy to see that the television offered more than
the standard 12 channels, instead we had our choice of full range of cable options as well as movie channel which certainly left us no shortage of options for our viewing needs.
The room also had a minifridge and microwave which proved very convenient.
Aside from a business center that offered fax and computer access, the hotel has a comfortable indoor
pool as well as a spacious hot tub and sauna.
The hotel offered free wireless Internet which was ideal for all of our needs.
The hotel offers a breakfast buffet every morning complete with great cinnamon rolls, bacon, biscuits and gravy as well as a full Continental Breakfast. This was a great surprise as
omelettes were also included in the mix and it was great to enjoy a hot breakfast as well as a selection of coffee and juice.
One does not often find this level of service and attention to detail for which more costly hotels would nickel and dime you. From the fantastic service of the staff, a very comfy room, the hearty breakfast buffet, and a location central to shopping and dining options, the Holiday Inn Express Vancouver offered everything a traveler could want and more, at an extremely reasonable price.
