One of the first sights I always notice when I drive into Utah from the North is this.
I don’t know why, but I just love this. It always catches my eye. It reminds me of home in Portland. :]
The drive was beautiful. Long. But beautiful. So when I finally got to my hotel, the Holiday Inn Express – Ogden, it felt great knowing I could just park and relax…at least for a few minutes.
After checking in, getting my key, internet code, and immediately asking where the gym was, I went straight to my room, which was nicer than I expected.
Right when I walked in I saw this…
The bed (this was a king)
The T.V. (which was directly across from the bed)
The desk and chair both by the window
I didn’t have much time to do much since the reception started at six. I changed into my gym clothes and made my way down to the fitness center so I could try and get a run in before I had to get ready.
The fitness center was small and didn’t have much to it, but it got the job done.
There were just two treadmills, a bike, a weight “station” and some free weights.
I ran a quick mile and did a few free weights then headed back to get ready for the reception.
Everything was amazing during my stay. The only problem I had was that the internet was a little bit sketchy. It would connect then disconnect every now and again, but that is to be expected at times so no big problems.
Note: I was not comped or given a free stay at this hotel for my review or opinions.
