I stayed at this hotel on business as it was only one DLR stop from where I was working. It is about 5 minutes walk from Canning Town station, which is also handy if you want to take the Jubilee line to Stratford. Check in was OK, and the rooms are what you would expect from a Holiday Inn Express.
If you don't want to travel, there are not many facilities near the hotel. There is an Italian restaurant which is OK (ish) but fairly expensive, and a really weird eastern european shop that sells stuff that looks familiar but is strangely different, with 2 very rude ladies on the checkout who talk to each other and laugh while serving customers. I felt like I was in a Harry Enfield sketch. There is also a Thai restaurant in walking distance, otherwise it is tube or bus.
The hotel is next to a road, so expect some background noise - once again, the earplugs were a god send.
Breakfast is OK - I only ever have cereal.
All in all a decent business stay and I would probably go back.
