Member Spotlight: Holiday Inn Express San Diego Downtown

The Holiday Inn Express Downtown San Diego just completed a 7 million dollar renovation. The hotel was used in the filming of a now American Classic Film “Almost Famous” starring Kate Hudson, Billy Crudup and Patrick Fugit released in 2000.  Its new features include remodeled guestrooms, lobby, breakfast room, common areas, meeting space and fitness center. The Holiday Inn Express offers contemporary accommodations that provide modern comfort and first-class service for today’s traveler. The property will certainly exceed your expectations because it goes beyond the brand standards of a typical Holiday Inn Express Property with upgraded furnishings.  However, what really sets us apart is our commitment to customer service and connecting with our return guests.

This non-smoking hotel is perfectly situated near the Historic Gaslamp Quarter, Balboa Park with the famous San Diego Zoo, Little Italy and only 3.2 miles from the airport. Our hotel offers competitive pricing, and the following complimentary amenities: airport shuttle, WIFI internet access, business center, hot breakfast buffet daily, and Happy Hour (complimentary beer, wine, and snacks) Monday – Thursday 5:00pm-6:30pm.
