The room is perfect for business, with all the business amenities you would need. Packing a decent gym. I would not recommend the buffet. Ala Carte had a good variety but is not the cheapest for what you are getting

After having had a few serious disappointments (pre-tripadvisor era) with Holiday Inns, I stayed away from them. Now that I was booked, I went there grudglingly - and was more than pleasantly surprised. Fantastic room, great service, excellent food (so much I have to do extra work outs). Forgot my mobile at checkout counter, they kept it and I had...

Perhaps holiday Inn Sandton City is an illusion i have created in my mind. Perhaps it is not a real hotel but in fact a home built just for me in the heart of a beautiful cosmopolitan city. Or perhaps it is a place where everyone walks in and out of and feels like they are king of this castle....

We stayed there for business for two weeks. Hotel is convenient, located near sandton shopping mall. Rooms are ok except if you re in one that is facing a construction site, they work at night, however I did not have to suffer too much from it. I had a problem of air conditionning but the hotel fixed it quickly. Breakfast...

We always stay here when in town for business. It has been a couple of years since I have been here and I've noticed a difference. The lobby is beautiful, but the rooms could use some care. The large flush for the toilet didn't work and the drapes needed a good clean. The bed was exceptionally comfortable and the rain...
