Good 6.0
Good place to sleep if you can dine elsewhere
Trip to attend conference at Excel. Have stayed at 4 other properties at Excel over the years. Every booked up fast this yr so 5 months out HIE was only avail option. Room, Cleanliness all OK. But no room mini fridge (a problem if you have anything that needs to be kept cold). Service good, and great in the breakfast area. BUT, other than the breakfast, which is good but very limited in selection, the food is terrible, and there are not local restaurant options. When you're up early and on your feet 10 hrs at a trade show you don't want go have to go search for decent dinner. HIE could do themselves a favor by UPGRADING both the MENU SELECTIONS and the QUALITY OF PREPARATION of the items. Personally, I won't stay there again because of the food. PS, with tax, they are getting USD $225/night, so this is not a very low rate hotel. By comparison, I stayed at the $94 Leonardo at the airport (realizing rates very low because not at a prime city location), but the breakfast had 2.5 times the selections, beautifully prepared; the rooms were comparable, and the service great.
