Holiday Inn Express & Suites.
This month we had the pleasure to travel to Ohio and stay at one of the most beautiful hotels that we’ve stayed in. And we have stayed in quite a few to build the comparison.
This Holiday Inn Express & Suites is located in Fremont, Ohio and is located conveniently off the I-80, I-90 and US 20 in Northern Ohio. We had traveled from Sandusky and we literally got off the highway, drove a little and we found this gorgeous gem awaiting us.
You drive right up to check-in and register, the front entrance is adorned with beautiful flowers and the driveway is a beautiful black cobblestone. Inside the sliding doors, you will find luggage carts if you need them to take your luggage to your room.
As soon as the second set of sliding doors open, you step into this.
Pictured above is the front lobby which is absolutely spectacular. The decor is super modern and because this property was only built in July of last year, it is brand new and so well-maintained. Not to mention it is very clean and you certainly smell that when you walk in and walk throughout the property.
There is plenty of space to just chill out and relax in the front lobby, they also have a long stack of magazines and it’s a perfect place to wait if there’s a line to check out in the mornings. Not to mention a perfect place to take advantage of their complimentary high speed internet.
We were greeted by the nicest attendant who told us where we could find everything, when breakfast was in the morning, where the pool and gym was and everything we needed to know about the Holiday Inn Express. She also informed me that the crib and cot that we had pre-ordered was already waiting for us in the room as well.
You will also find a nice breakfast room where the complimentary breakfast is also served, there is plenty of seating and a gorgeous fire place to cuddle in front of. There’s tables and breakfast bar tables with bar stools and if you ever stayed at the Holiday Inn, you know that the breakfasts have a reputation of their own.
Nearby, you can find the Business Center. It is unattended and consists of two computers and a printer. All you need when you are on the road and need to do work.
If you stay active even on vacations, have no fear–you are covered! An elliptical trainer, treadmill and stationary bike are at your disposal. As well, as an all-in-one gym to help keep you toned. There’s towels and ice cold water waiting for you after you’ve sweat out those calories.
Splash It Out!
This was one of many of our favorite amenities at the Holiday Inn Express.
The pool was about 4 1/2 feet at it’s deepest and it is absolutely PERFECT for families. Why? Well, because your older kids can swim on their own without you worrying they go too far in the deep end and you are comfortable able to play with the little ones too.
The water was clean and warm. You can see all the natural light coming from the patio windows and it keeps the water nice and warm.In the pool room, there’s a shower and a washroom to use, as well as tables to sit out on in the pool deck.
Take It Outdoors!
If you want to enjoy the sunlight, take it outside the pool and sit in the outdoor patio. It’s serene and quiet and the sun hits this side of the building perfectly. You can get in and out by using your room card so, be sure to bring it with you when you leave the building.
Time to Check-In!
Now that you have seen the Holiday Inn Express & Suites and all of it’s awesomeness even before you check-in, the next step naturally is to check-in and check-out the room. Join me and see how great the Holiday Inn Express & Suites is for families and the sole traveler alike.
