Booking made through Intercontinental/Holiday Inn website, which was simple and efficient. Hotel was one of the best Holiday Inns we have visited and better than most in UK, Europe and N America. Relatively easy to find in our rental car but beware! Verdun Street is now Rachid Karami St, which initially threw us off the trail. Note that security staff check all cars entering hotel/shopping centre underground car park and indeed the bags of all entering complex on foot.
Check in staff were really friendly and helpful. Room was clean, relatively spacious and quiet as we had requested. However, bathroom could do with an update. Public areas were comfortable and we liked the direct access on two floors to the shopping centre. The high class cafe just outside the hotel's reception area became a favourite of ours. There appeared to be extensive shopping and eating possibilities close by but, because we were travelling out to different parts of Lebanon each day, we did not do them justice.
One evening we had a room service meal, which arrived promptly and was hot, generous and tasty.
Reception staff helpfully negotiated our parking requirements with car park cashier who did not speak English or French.
