The Holiday Inn London - Kensington Forum is better located and would be my choice of the two.

For Heathrow the Kensington Forum is much better located - next door to Gloucester Road Underground Station with direct Underground link every 5 minutes.

Hop On Hop Off buses also come to Gloucester Road and the traditional guided tours nearly all have a pick-up at the Kensington Forum or the Millenium Gloucester opposite.
