We were lucky to unwind a week in Edmonton, Alberta where we stayed at the Holiday Inn Express – Edmonton International Airport which is just outside of the actual city in Nisku/Leduc. The hotel is easy to find and it’s right by the train tracks – which could be noisy when the train goes by.
The room was really large and offered a seating area. The suites are relatively quiet except when a train goes by. The train doesn’t go by too often which makes this a nice hotel for business or personal. There is also complimentary breakfast with the hotel.
In the event of not wanting to eat complimentary breakfast, or you missed it, or you just have something else in mind – this hotel is ideal as it offers both a mini fridge and microwave! You can do almost anything!
The bathrooms are quite standard as any other hotel bathroom – and they use really nice bathroom amenities. Bath and Body works was the brand of their choice which is a lovely brand and growing in popularity!
The beds are so comfortable and the pillows were plush yet firm. We had a great night sleep and wouldn’t mind returning to this hotel again! The hotel itself offers amenities like dining, and pool & hot tub. Unfortunately during our stay, the hot tub was down and I was going to use it to soak the stress for the week away.
The video shows the room walk through – which was a fantastic room!

We drove down to the states one weekend and made our way to Seattle, Washington. We had an overnight stay at Holiday Inn Express in Everett, just north of Seattle, but basically right there!
We checked into our standard room with a King bed and it was a decent hotel! A little run down but still very nice. The location was fantastic as it was just off the freeway! The bed in the hotel was large and comfortable.
The bathroom oddly I didn’t take a picture of, but you can see it in the room walk-through clip. They used Bath & Body work bathroom amenities which was extremely nice. Of course it left a great scent! The bath room was a good sized bathroom as well. The living area wasn’t bad in size either. The room had it’s own seating area, a vanity desk and a little kitchenette with a microwave, fridge and of course a kettle.
The hotel was great stop and just minutes to Seattle and if you go straight up the freeway, it will take you to the Canada/US border.

I did a blind booking when I had the opportunity to stay up North in Whitecourt, Alberta and we just randomly bid a hotel as we had no idea what’s what. We were lucky enough to have won Holiday Inn Express & Suites for this stay, and I’m sure glad we did! The hotel and the room was very nice and the staff was extremely friendly! The location was really good as it’s not far from amenities, yet far enough from the highway and train that it was quiet.
Once we got to our room, we were blown away with the amount of space we had! It was huge inside with all the amenities you’d want – from mini fridge to a microwave! We’re never picky with what we get and this room, we had 2 queen sized beds and it was nice! Everything was clean and no funky smell – which is always a good thing.
The bathroom decent in size with enough counter space! It was pretty standard, and it was also clean with fresh towels and stuff. It’s not spacious, but yet, how much room do you need in a bathroom…
They used Bath & Body Works bathroom amenities in this hotel, which is very nice. It smell really good and you know it’s a good brand. I appreciate it! The last Holiday Inn Express I stayed at used the same line, but a different scent – so it’s a fun way to experience it!
Overall, the stay was extremely enjoyable and comfortable. They had free wifi internet, free parking and complimentary breakfast! To see the room walk-through, check out the clip below!
