Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by widget031104 Very Good Location
The hotel is still quite new and it shows, althought the odd thing (like the towel hooks which were not attached to the wall firmly) is starting to need attention. The reception staff were very good and recognised me as a gold member. The breakfast was ok. I've seen better and had a bigger choice at other hotels and other Holiday Inns. The hotel doesn't seem that child friendly (although we hadn't brought ours, but it's an observation worth sharing nonetheless#. I couldn't really fault the hotel for anything, but at the same time, can't really rave about it. If you get a good deal on price, then it is well situated and I would recommend it as a place for an overnight stay if you're looking to explore London for a day or two. Better curtains to keep the light out and better sound insulation would be a bonus as you have many eating and drinking places just outside and depending on your room, you may be disturbed just a little. The hotel is nice, but not great #would be improved if it had a pool).

Me and my mum stayed here last week. Excellent service, room was ready and we were early. Got a complimentary drink as we were loyalty customers which was a great start to the stay. Lovely clean fresh room. Perfect location. Would definitely recommend.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Gracie Ravenbolt Great location, super helpful and friendly staff
You know what you're getting with a Holiday Inn, so why take a chance with something that might or might not be ok.
Fabulous location for London visiting and for the Westfield Shopping centre. Staff were particularly helpful and friendly, and I would certainly recommend it to others
24 hour parking charge incredibly reasonable for this area

Fantastic 5* clean sweep. No one works harder than Tiho on inhouse bookings to secure you a last minute cancellation when the entire of the city is full due to London Fashion Week ... a great hotel with no drawbacks

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by buttercup53 Stunning room, friendly staff
My only issue would that there was no concession for carer. As I cannot come on my own due to disability. This means that it was a very expensive short break by the time I had paid for two rooms carers wages ( by the hour) and travel.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Wildabout Not a great example of Holiday Inn Service
Take care when being offered a room upgrade, even if you are a Platinum Priority Club member. It consists of changing your view from the side of the shopping centre to the bus park outside the Olympic swimming pool.
Towels not provided one day and the check in staff are unable to link 2 separate bookings so that you have to check in again part way through your stay as they won't issue a room key for the full time of your stay.
You do get the feeling that the guests get in the way of running the hotel

Staff do not value platinum member nor offer room upgrade. As always no room available. Hotel quite new, why have alternating room where window can open then next room do not. also no fridge.

My husband and I drove up on the 31 Jan, very straight forward to get to hotel. Underground car park £5 for 24hrs. Out of car park, up one escalator and into hotel! Check in was quick and easy. Room and bathroom were both very nice, everything you could want. The bar area was relaxing. Breakfast was very good, plenty of choice for both hot and cold, all the staff we encountered were attentive but not overbearing. All in all a very pleasant stay and we will return!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Peter C A nice hotel on site for Westfield shopaholics to relax.
Alongside the outside street restaurants at Westfield Stratford, this is a good place to check in and take a break from shopping in the huge malls if you cannot take the pace. The rooms are quite basic, more like a Holiday Inn Express than a Holiday Inn or Crowne Plaza. Coming by car can be a problem because you must enter Car Park B to be close to the hotel and then leave your car there for up to 24 hours to pay five pounds for the privilege of being at Westfield. Do not try to move your car regularly otherwise you may pay much more. I did not use any of the food options or rooms service at the hotel so I cannot comment on those. For me it was much more interesting to sample the many choices of food on offer in Westfield.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by The Degas The ideal hotel to stay in...
Overall very satisfied, particularly with the cleanliness, design, and comfort. However, breakfast could be more varied as essentially it is still identical to a Holiday Inn Express hotels. Internet speed could be much faster. Location, staff politeness and professionalism are key characteristics of this hotel. We will definitely stay again in this hotel.

Stayed at the hotel for a work conference and found it to be excellent in terms of location, both to the London Aquatic Centre and the Westfield Shopping Centre. Parking was really cheap for 24 hours and right under the hotel. The hotel itself was clean, with friendly staff and the rooms were extremely comfortable with everything you'd need. The style was modern with plenty of reference to the Olympics - especially the swimming.

I liked the surroundings of this Hotel and it has easy access to center of London Via Tube & Bus
As a Platinum member, The Hotel did not upgraded me to higher level as it is the practice of other Holiday Inn Hotels
I did not like the size of the rooms as it is smaller but I think it fits London Standard Hotel Rooms

The concierge booked a cab to pick us up at Heathrow and we arrived at the hotel 9 am on Boxing Day. A room was available so we got our key early. The room was very nice (no view), bed was comfortable, breakfast was nice, and the staff was wonderful. The hotel is a 5 minute walk to the underground so it was very convenient for touring.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by James H Great location and clean good priced hotel
I stayed at the London Stratford City Holiday Inn a few times on business at the end of 2013 and found it to be a very good hotel for the money. The location was excellent for my business at Canary Wharf.. and some shopping. The staff on reception are extremely bubbly and friendly and the vibe of the hotel is always a good one. The rooms are basic but clean and modern and what you would expect of a newly built Holiday Inn. The only fault with this hotel is that I find it noisy. The noise from the adjacent Casino gave me a poor nights sleep, as did the road sweeper and the music both from the shopping centre below. Due to this I would only want to stay in Olympic Park facing rooms. Food is average from the restaurant but I may be expecting too much from a Holiday Inn. Breakfast is always good.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by sophielaura Great hotel and first rate staff
Stayed here the Sunday before Christmas to do some festive shopping. Hotel is next to Westfield Centre and only 20-30 min tube into the West End, so location is great.
Hotel is new and built for 2012 Olympics, and staff are very much in this league, informative, helpful and with a welcoming smile.
Stayed on 6th floor and could look into Queen Elizabeth Park. Room was fine, standard HI bed and linens, good well equipped bathroom and shower.
At dinner in the bar, where we had selection of beef burgers and piri piri burgers. All good, although needed a few more chips. Breakfast was great. As somebody who travels a lot, this can be hit and miss. Here it was on the money and hot, I say hot. Loved the Cumberland sausages, first rate start to the day.

We had 3 in one room and there was great space for all,comfy beds and everything needed.It was quiet and pleasantly decorated. The lift wouldn't climb above 4th floor if we didn't wave the room key card in front of a sensor in the lift- but this wasn't well explained.the fixing of the toilet seat in the bathroom was faulty so it moved.the breakfast was ok Our booking offer included a shopping gift card provided by the hotel ,but the staff were unfamiliar with this offer,eventually gave us a card that turned out to have expired and the next day I had to return to the hotel to get a replacement, with some difficulty.we had a good night's sleep ,great shower and enjoyed westfield but the negatives spoiled our visit.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by NorthernBoy A good year in Stratford
I have been staying here for Business 3 nights a week for the last 6 months. The hotel is excellent - very clean and fresh, the rooms are well supplied and comfy, the staff are very friendly and welcoming and there is a good selection of food on the bar/restaurant menus.
It is very near Stratford station with easy access to DLR, Tube and Overground so transport is not a problem. The Westfield centre on the side has plenty of restaurants and shops to help pass the time for "hotel lifers" like me. It also has a great view out over the Olympic park and sitting on the veranda sipping a cold beer as the sun set over the park was a great summer memory. Thanks to all the staff for looking after me this year and I look forward to coming back in the New Year and would have no hesitation in recommending this to others.

As a Platinum member I obviously stay at a lot of IHG hotels. This is up there with the best, IHG have always got it spot on with staff and this is no exception. Even as a Rewards night , so nice to share the experience with the wife rather than the normal business stays, treatment was first class, friendly acknowledgement every time we left or returned to the hotel, which was frequent over 3 days of London theatre and shopping. The hotel is absolutely perfect for Westfield yet once inside you do not feel you are in a busy shopping centre.
Due to free Internet as a Platinum member, I was able to do some work and hence extend the break.
Nice hotel, great staff, great experience. Thank you.

after working a 12 hour shift i was going to treat my self to a nice stea konly to find the reasturant as closed due to private parties on both my nights stay, the menu i was offered was the bar menu or the chef could do a xmas dinner what a joke. Also being a smoker i was up early and could not use the terrace to go for a smoak as it was locked and had to go and stand in the street and that was the guys response who was on reception. Always stay with holiday inn but this is the worst in the chain get it soughted holiday inn customer service needs improving here.

We came to London to see a show and do some Xmas shopping. We were delighted to see the hotel was situated so close to the fantastic Westfield Shopping Centre, surrounded by beautiful Xmas lights. It is an ideal location, easily reached by the tube with plenty of choice of restaurants literally on the doorstep . The rooms were clean, modern and fresh. Staying there felt like a real treat. Will definitely be returning.
