Easy to get to from Euston, only 10-15mins walk. Lovely conference suite with separate rooms if necessary. Plenty of coffee, fruit, juices at breaks and a really pleasant lunch. Would use it for one of my meetings in the future.

Room Tip: Quiet all round

Once I was upgraded to an Executive room on the 6th floor (Room 616, which I recommend highly), I was very happy for my 6 nights at this hotel. I wouldn't have been happy spending a whole week in the other room, however, which was small, had a poor interior view, had no refrigerator, and had a toilet that required extra work (it wouldn't flush properly unless you managed to heave a wastebasket full of water into it while it was trying to flush itself).

I am extremely grateful to Emilio at the reception desk who was charming, sympathetic, and totally helpful when I went to see if there was a way to improve my situation. Any major hotel chain would be lucky to have him in charge of the whole thing - he's probably the best person in that kind of position I've run into in years of travel to London (and, okay, of airing the occasional complaint).

I love the location - tube is very nearby but I walked everyplace I wanted to go, and for a longish stay, a big plus is the presence across the street of a very pleasant shopping mall that includes an assortment of restaurants and cafes, an excellent food store open late (Waitrose), and one of London's premiere art-house cinemas (the Renoir), as well as some nice shops.

As a PS - the Internet does cost too much BUT I've seen a press release saying that starting in 2014, anybody with an IHG membership card can have free Internet service in one of their hotels. It costs nothing to join.

Room Tip: Get an Executive room, or try for an upgrade upon arrival, which is worth paying for especially if y...

Was here for 4 nights at the end of August for sight seeing in London after spouse finished business trip in Ascot. My spouse is a platinum member, so we used points and money which afforded us a reasonably priced stay. We did have a room on the 6th floor which is an upgraded room that was very spacious, clean and exceptionally quiet. From the time of check in, with I believe his name was Emile who was very welcoming to Alexsandra who also remembered my coffee order every morning, made the stay much better. The area of Bloomsbury is great with a lot of options for food and drink. So close to tube station and Kings Cross rail station and British Museum and a pleasant walk to Covent Garden. Felt very safe day or night. Room service was exceptionally fast and food was good. Liked the attached Pub. Would definitely stay here again on my next visit to London.

Stayed from Friday 30th Aug till Mon 2nd Sept, great location very close to Russell Square tube station giving great access to central London. Had an executive room on first floor that was very spacious and quiet. Staff all nice,helpful and courteous. Breakfast was the best I have had in a hotel for a long time with plenty of choice. Excellent value and will definitely use again on next trip to London.

Room Tip: We were in executive room on first floor and was very quiet with no street or corridor noise.

Great location very near tube station. Friendly staff...Gary, the concierge, was particularly helpful. The bar has food late and has recently been renovated. Breakfast and WiFi are NOT included. Rooms are quite small, but clean and manageable. Not all rooms have refrigerators...a bit strange today for a Holiday Inn. Our room did not have a clock radio either. On repeated occasions our room key would not work on the elevator (to be able to choose our floor) and we had to get a new key card....inconvenient!

Room Tip: Be sure that if you book on line you choose 2 beds in the room if you need them. Do not just mentio...

Had two nights here in August. Just round the corner from the tube, and well located for central London. Room was fine, quiet and comfortable. The staff were friendly and very helpful. Handy bar downstairs for a late night drink. Will certainly use again. Thanks.
