I was charged in advance for full 7 days while they should have taken pre-authorisation. On complaining, the "Guest Relations Executive" was quite snooty and says that this is our standard policy! Also, that they are no longer part of the Holiday Inn franchise so not bound by any rules. When I asked why did they use the Brand name - she had no answer. Other problems - exactly same breakfast menu for 7 days, extremely limited room service menu, just two lifts to serve the entire hotel rooms so quite a wait during the rush hours, general run down look of the hotel. However good location.
