I was happy with the Holiday Inn after staying at the Golden Tulip, La Palm, and Alisa on prior visits. It was more modern and clean than the others, and its proximity to the airport can't be beat. For about the same price, it's the best option of the main business hotels in Accra.

A Holiday Inn trying to go upscale, but not making it. The entire top floor smelled of mold for days, and maintenance only got part of it - stay off the top floor. AC unit dripped water onto the rug, no mold on the rug but the ceiling was sagging and molding. Night chek out was really slow. The hotel is overpriced because it is right next to the airporat, and Accra traffic can be nearly impossible - the only place to stay to get in and out quickly. The swimming pool is the main attraction for the restaurant - looks nice, but prepare to be on display and walk through the lobby to get there. Mediocre exercise room requires stopping at the front desk for a special key then walking outdoors. The overflow meeting rooms are outdoors. No MasterCard cash machine - there is one hidden a couple of blocks away, but don't try and walk thee after dark - and the Visa machne is outdoors. Nothing is within walking distance, and dinner can take 45 minutes to go a mile if you get caught in traffic. All meals are buffet style in the restarant, you can get better food ordering the the bar.

Gorgious hadwood floors (very slippery!!) in the room and marble tilled bath room with a real bath - fill the bath from the movable shower head (it takes about 15-2) minutes.) Lots of room. (I was on the executive level.) Great African art and hand carved chairs on every floor - walk down the stairs to see. Very friendly and attentive staff.

Touring. If you hire a car, expect to be stopped for security AND then again a demand for a bribe from the next stop, even on the main tourist road. My driven paid the extortionist wearing a police unifrom 5 Cedis (about $3). If you drive (a really bad idea given the crazy drivers and incredible traffic!) be sure to bring cash for a bribe. Another driver had to buy his way out of an illegal left turn ticket.

The coast is really very nice. Not a lot to see, but definetly worth the 100 mile trip (each way) to Cape Coast and Elmina.

There are much nicer hotels, much closer to everything except the airport and US Embassy, and most of them are cheaper, but either stay were you are going or allow a great deal of time for traffic from 4:30-9:00 PM. Stay here for business.

Room Tip: Stay off the top floor due to mold.

The hotel is next to the airport and a free shuttle bus only takes a few minutes to do the journey. The decor in the hotel is very good, African carvings all over the place, it has a 5 start look.
Staffs were good and there are plenty of them. The food was a bit disappointing lots of traditional food buffet style so you don’t go hungry but for the price there are a lot better restaurants in town.
This was one of the draw backs twenty minutes to the town centre by taxi, if you are on business then being near the airport is handy but in the town there are better hotels on the beach that are cheaper.
Rooms were OK nice view of building sites on all sides  clean though and normal stuff you get in a holiday inn. To be honest when I go back I will stay in one of the town centre hotels even on business you need a little fun!

this is a fairly new hotel with very comfortable rooms: good sleep quality [i could not hear my neighbors and bed was soft] and clean]. the hotel has many services: free wireless internet for 3 days, good food [though local food is cheaper], a lovely setting inside the hotel compound [outside the hotel not so much]. I travel alone alot for work and as a woman this place felt very safe unlike some other hotels in developing countries. There is a pool, but it seems to be more for looking at--I swam early in the morning since business men use the pool bar and seating area as a meeting area most of the day and I did not want to be on exhibition. It is right next to the airport and within easy taxi/driver distance to embassies and other businesses--though the Accra traffic means it will still take you 30 mintues to go down the street. The staff, like Ghanaians in general are very nice and helpful, speak English, and there seems to be plenty of them. Just remember that the cultural norm here is to summon the waiter/waitrees otherwise they do not just come to your table.

Room Tip: the rooms look over either the pool or the phone company and bank next door; pool can be a bit loud with music

Accra is one of the most convenient African cities to visit on business as the airport is very close to town. Hence the Holiday Inn Accra does not feel like an airport hotel despite being just minutes (1km) from the terminal building. Location, relative new-ness and the kudos of having accommodated the US president and his family in 2009 all contribute to occupancy being high, and room rates not being cheap. It's definitely a business hotel - vacationing families or transferring expats are more likely to be encountered at the Golden Tulip which feels a little more like a resort. Reception staff are very friendly and seem to have discretion to allocate superior rooms if asked. Air-con units in the rooms work well, but are not the silent type. The hotel's pest control policy sees frequent use of insecticide. This combined with the fact that rooms are part-carpeted means rooms always have a damp-tropical odour. It takes a few minutes to get used to this smell - and thereafter you don't notice. Beds are comfortable and housekeeping standards up to what you'd expect from a Holiday Inn in Africa. On my most recent stay the hotel fire alarm went off after midnight for no reason, and there was no public address system to reassure guests it was a false alarm. Hotel food is good, and the pool area (rarely used by swimmers) has a nice ambience for evening drinks. Business centre has 5 PCs (not all of which work) and in my experience they're always happy to print out boarding passes without charge. As more competing hotels (Hilton, Movenpick) open in the vicinity, room rates will presumably ease. Until then, this is the airport hotel of (no other!) choice.
