I have stayed at this property two times now and found both stays very accomodating for business trips. The property itself is very close to the interstate and there are many restaurants and shopping areas withing a short drive. The hotel is only about 10 minutes from the Newport News airport and is very easy to get to.
The rooms are typical of redone Holiday Inn. I have found that Holiday Inn properties that have been updated are vastly superior to Holiday Inn Express hotels (even when new). The older rooms have better sound insulation. The bed is comfortable and the shower works well. Air conditioning is controlled by a wall thermostat but there are still window units that cool the room.
Overall the hotel is very quiet and the staff friendly. The lobby and common areas are very clean. I have not had a chance to use the fitness center yet.
The extra bonus with this hotel is the Italian Restaurant that is in the hotel and is serves up fresh pasta and real Sicilian Italian food. The chef here does a very nice job for a smaller city. The breakfast buffet is above average with some nice extra fruit and sausage choices.
