Booked by a local tour operator and we stayed for two nights. Interesting design adopting the local tibetan and qiang's culture. It's a sizeable complex and while the lobby is big and appealing, getting to the room took felt like 10 minutes passing 100 rooms on the ground floor so do ask for closer rooms if you prefer.
The two signle-beds room and the bathroom was spacious but that's pretty much the only pluses. Bed comfort was just ok but that would be below the Inter-continental (owner) standard. Free Internet only by cable. The real problem for me was no proper heating given the cold weather. Fortunately, front desk made available a mobile heater.
The real shock for me was seeing a mouse entering the room from outside in the early morning! It ran away quickly as I moved but never expected that and first time in any hotel I had stayed.
Buffet breakfast was good. The place is about 30-45min to Juizhaigou park and about 1-1.5hr to the airport. The name is a little confusing in Chinese as both the Inter-continental and Holiday Inn has Juizhaigou Paradise associated with it but they are like 4km apart so check carefully if arranged by a local tour operator.
It's an intersting and a decent 4-star hotel catered for big tour groups. We were told by the tour guide that Holiday Inn is a top hotel among the 200 pluses hotels in Juizhaigou. Deserved a 4 star if not because of the little visitor!
