POSITIVE: The hotel is conveniently located near the train station (less than 5 minute walk). You're in central London in less than 20 min. Parking lot is tricky but its free. The room was basic and clean. NEGATIVES: mattress was less than comfy. so it was a good thing we had booked a short stay. Staff were polite but did not resolve the problem with our phone - which was inconvenient since we had to run to reception each time we had a question. Breakfast was lack luster, McDonald's might have been a better choice. ANNOYING: Wi-fi is free but slow. You have to pay for a faster connection. There was only one working electric socket, which I am encountering more often with these chain hotels. CONCLUSION; You get what you pay for. Holiday Inn isn't what it used to be - its right up there with all those other chains. But with that said, its not a bad hotel. You are close enough to central London without the high prices. So I would recommend it if you're on a tight budget.
