Holiday Inn is one of the few hotels located at the northern side of Penang called Batu Ferringhi. It is famous for its beaches making it a nice place to stay for relaxation. Few other hotels located along the stretch are Shangri La and Park Royal – making Holiday Inn Resort the poorer sibling. At only RM 885 (inclusive of tax) for 4 persons with breakfast, it certainly makes this resort a very budget getaway (while it cost almost RM 3000 for the same dates in Park Royal!)
The hotel comprises 2 blocks, the Ferringhi Tower and Seaside Tower. When coming on Grab, do specify which tower you are going to. Even if you are dropped at the wrong side, both towers are connected by an overhead bridge and check ins can be handled both sides.

At almost 100 years old, this old hotel built by the Vanderbilt family near the Grand Central Terminal still looks elegant and classy well into the 21st century.
How does it fair in the modern New York?

Having recently joined the Intercontinental Ambassador program, I decided to do my short stay in one of the Intercontinental Hotels in Hanoi. There are 2 Intercontinental in Hanoi, the older one is situated in West Lake while the newer one is in Landmark 72, a fairly new office cum hotel tower in Hanoi. Intercontinental Landmark 72 was just recently launched in September 2017 and they have yet to have their own website (the hotel website is currently hosted on IHG website). After 2 nights stay, I have only praises for this hotel while the only downside about this hotel is the location (which is quite a distance from the Old Quarters).
