Something to consider the next time you consider staying at a Holiday Inn Express on your next family vacation…

Sounds like you guys had a great night. Congratulations.

It was really awesome. Have a great day. #thishotelhasthinwalls

“So seldom that a letter, among the thousands that are constantly passing about the kingdom, and not one in a million, I suppose, actually lost!”

—Jane Austen, Emma
