Getting to the Holiday Inn Plaza from the Manchester (MHT) Airport
[Approximate Travel Time: 15 minutes] Follow signs for exiting the airport

If traffic is light: The electric sign will direct you to turn left
(South) on 1A directly towards the Sumner Tunnel.
If traffic is heavy: The electric sign and state police will require you
take the "alternate route" to Sumner Tunnel:
Turn right (North) on 1A, away from the tunnel. Get off at the first exit
and keep to the left down the exit ramp. At the bottom of the ramp make a
U-turn back onto 1A, heading South towards the tunnel.
