We like the Holiday Inn Hotel Chain and stay there in almost every City we travel in. This was a good location away from the expensive Downtown Vancouver, but a quick train ride to most places. It is also next to the Metrotown shopping plaza. We enjoyed this location, but trying to get to Vancouver by car from here was a bit tedious because of traffic. Easier on the train if you can walk everywhere from your destination or take a cab.
Also, this place has a lot of construction going on in and around it, so the noise at 8:15am (jackhammer) is very annoying and well, crappy. I would not stay here again as long as they are under construction. Not the hotel's fault, but my recommendation is perhaps they can tell construction crews to start their JACK HAMMERING at 9am when we are getting up anyway. Also on our floor (3rd) it was very noisy as it seemed that crews were using this floor to access their work areas. But I liked this floor because it has the pool and laundry room and one floor above the free Breakfast room.
The Hotel did accommodate us with valet parking our rental car when the garage was closed down for work. The valet was fast and very courteous. I am glad that the hotel at least did this to help their guests who had cars.
But overall, it is a decent hotel. The staff was good and the property inside was good. I would NOT stay here again during the construction..it was just too stressful and that is why I gave this property 3 stars because I think a bit more could be done to make sure the guests are more comfortable at night and in the morning. Just *average*.
