Although the Official Hotel "says" they are
sold out, according to the Holiday Inn
Express Website at 6AM on Feb 26, they have rooms. But
they are not at the chess rate. I recommend you check the
Holiday Inn Express website (holidayinnexpress.com)
or check with the
hotel directly to see if there have been any cancellations
