I've stayed here twice now, and would stay again, because of the convenience of the location if you're working in MediaCity.
On both occasions, the staff were friendly and courteous, and the food excellent. The restaurant in the evening was way better than anything I'd normally associated with a chain like Holiday Inn.
The rooms are neat and modern, but had some downsides:
On the first trip, the mattress managed to be both uncomfortably hard, and yet sagging in the middle. We clung to our respective sides of the bed to stop ourselves from rolling into the void...
In addition, I hate hotels where you can't open the windows at all, and this room (905) was blessed with an aircon system that cycled between too hot and too cold throughout the night.
The second room had neither of these problems and we slept fine, but, like the first one, it had a shower that had to be held within inches of your body if the water drops were to make it across the gap.
Overall, I would have given it three stars, but the Green Room restaurant certainly merited an extra one.More
