Picked this as the official hotel due to it’s location right off the Mass Pike, Route 290 and the Mass Pike. Relatively newer hotel and the prices are good. If you were to stay here, you can get to the airport in less then 15 minutes with very little traffic.

Why do you think you were named the official hotel of FlyOHR?
I believe we were named as the official hotel of ORH due to the demand for excellence for all the airport travelers. Currently, Holiday Inn Express is number one Trip Advisor in Auburn and has won the Trip Advisor Excellence Award, and won the Best of Auburn contest two years in a row. Being part of the IHG Group of Hotels family, the high standards for meeting our guests needs and wants in an above standard way, are extremely high.
Is it easy to get to ORH from your hotel?
It is so easy to get from our hotel in Auburn to the Worcester Airport. There are signs all along the way, and by being located where we are in the suburbs, the back roads are the fastest and least congested to get to ORH. This convenience is a real plus for our travelers.
Is it diffucult to get a room at your hotel? Is there a peak season?
I always tell our guests to book early if they are sure of their dates that they need to stay. And if they are only somewhat sure, they can make the reservation with the option of cancelling it before 6:00 pm the night of arrival if their plans change. The month of May is a very busy month with 12 colleges in the area graduating and our yearly event, Brimfield, so this is one month where you want to book early for if you know you will be in town.
Is there a shuttle to the airport?
“We absolutely have shuttle services that we use. If you let us know ahead of time when you are arriving and/or departing, we will be more than happy to have a shuttle or car at the airport to pick you up. “
We were truly honored to be named the official hotel of FYORH. We know there is a large choice of hotels in the Worcester and Auburn area, and we are excited to extend our standards of premier service to all of our guests. if you have any questions about the hotel, send me an e-mail.
