The great part of this place is the packages they offer. We used the park-and-fly package, and it more than paid for itself. They allow you to leave your vehicle there for free for up to two weeks. BWI charges over $10 a day to leave your car onsite. When we returned, the car was exactly where we left it and hadn't been tampered with, so I don't think there are many safety concerns.
The hotel is in a nice area, although not close to downtown. It is about 12 miles away from the Inner Harbor, but it's not a bad drive. There is a hotel shuttle that runs through the night to BWI airport. We had a little trouble finding the shuttle at the airport to return to the hotel though. We ended up catching a cab back to our car, but it was only about $10. Make sure to specify to the cabbie the Holiday Inn Express. We ended up at a regular Holiday Inn close by and had to give him directions to our place. I would definitely recommend staying here if you're planning on flying out and leaving your car. What a deal!!
