I arrived early at the hotel (about 9am) in the morning and the reception staff was a great help. He went further to ask if I was traveling for business or leisure and recommended the executive floor upgrade since I was on a work trip. Even though I didn't take it, the initiative by the staff was much appreciated.
As this is a fairly new hotel, the rooms and facilities are still in excellent condition and I like the choice of pillows in the rooms. This is a common thing in most Holiday Inn hotels but this time there is distinct difference between the firm and soft pillows, unlike some other Holiday Inn properties. The female F&B manager at the restaurant was also helpful. As my booking didn't come with breakfast, I went ahead for breakfast and she went the extra mile to inform me that I could enjoy a discount because of my IHG membership. There were about 6-8 choices for both Chinese and Western dishes, with slightly more Chinese dishes as per expected in a Chinese hotel.
The only letdown is the location of the hotel. There is no amenity nearby and the nearest 7-11 is about 15mins' walk away. And the hotel is located in the midst of a few construction areas. While it isn't noisy at night, the view outside is pretty grey.
