Holiday Inn Express
Located in the high-rent district next to The Lakes subdivision and across the street from Canyon Gate Country Club, this Holiday Inn has 59 rooms in a modern three-story tower. Some of the spanking-new suites include full kitchens, complete with dishwashers, ovens and all utensils. Others feature six-person Jacuzzis and are decked out in Native American or Egyptian themes. Three restaurants, an ice cream parlor and a pizza parlor are within walking distance. Children younger than 19 stay free with their parents, and the youngsters can frolic on the grassy park areas surrounding the hotel. Corporate customers are pampered too, with complimentary fax service and a theater-style meeting room that is equipped with audiovisual equipment, which can also be used at no extra charge. When the weekday travelers leave, the hotel discounts weekend rates. Every morning, guests wake up to a full continental breakfast in the lobby. From 5 to 6 PM on weekday evenings, cookies, coffee and other beverages are served. The upscale surroundings provide a welcome sense of comfort and security for travelers, and the hotel is favored by many women executives for that reason.
