This is a nice property, the rooms are nice, the bar and public areas are nice and generally a good location. however If you stay at the weekend be prepared to be treated like a 2nd class citizen. You will be asked to sign disclaimers saying you wont trash the rooms, burly security guards will try to bully your room number from you, Staff will not know how to deal with frequent guests and do not recognise the IHG loyalty programs.
As a platinum member, and I have been in many holiday inn's all over the world. I have never been accused that I might trash a room or been denied access to a hotel despite showing ID because I would not disclose my room number to a non HI member of staff.
If you are expecting a 4 star holiday Inn, don't stay here, you get the treatment you would expect at a hostel or city centre Travel lodge. Not good reflection of the brand or such a nice property.
