  • Bare-bones fitness center only has 3 cardio machines
  • No on-site lunch or dinner options

Bottom Line

Chances are if you're considering the Holiday Inn Express & Suites Dallas Central - Market Center, you're not looking for much more than an affordable place to sleep -- and there's nothing wrong with that. The rooms are clean and in good condition, the beds are comfortable, and there's a free buffet breakfast -- standard in all Holiday Inn Express hotels. The main downfall is the hotel's location -- downtown Dallas and all area attractions and restaurants are a drive away. If you're here for the Market Center, this is a great budget option. But if you're a business traveler less concerned with value and want to be closer to the action, consider staying at the Crowne Plaza Downtown instead.
