Happiness on a Houston Layover

Happiness is finding an airport Holiday Inn Express at IAH for 5000 points on an IHG Points Break deal.

We booked it for last night and asked for a late checkout, since we have Platinum status.

We both slept several hours and are ready to shuttle back to the airport for our flight to Vancouver.

It was a much nicer way to spend an 11-hour layover between flights than trying to cope at the airport.

Addendum: When we checked out shortly after 2:00 p.m. and requested a shuttle, the pleasant young clerk told us that shuttles don't run at this property between 1:00 p.m. and 4:00 p.m. because "most people start checking in at 3:00."

There was another customer there in the same situation and we all got there via Uber. In all our travels, we've seen plenty of place that don't run their shuttles 24 hours, but in the middle of the afternoon?

Another amazing new travel experience.
