We stayed at this Holiday Inn for 4 nights, as part of our long weekend getaway from Hong Kong.
The hotel is well situated next to the Jetty, a short walking distance to all the major attractions and shopping malls (Mahkota Parade and Dataran Pahlawan). There is also regular shuttle bus service available from the hotel.
The first room that we got was on the 11th floor with city view. However, we felt it pretty noise with the morning traffic. After we reported this to the reception, we were offered a different room on 10th floor with the Straits view, which was quieter but not quite inspiring.
On level 3, there's an infinity pool but it's often packed with family and children. This may be the ideal place for relaxation. Alternatively, we chose to visit the Tea Tree Spa. There was a weekend offer for free express facial with any massage of 90 minutes booked. The treatment was pretty good and we will definitely recommend it after a long day wandering around.
The hotel also offers various dining discount on site. We had a dinner one night at Sirocco Restaurant at the lobby level. It is great if you want some good pasta and wood fire oven pizza. If you want a quick drink, the bar next door is the best option. The manager Henry is very friendly.
All is all, it is a decent hotel - this may not be a luxury option but have everything you will need for a short stay.
