I like Holiday Inn's rooms because the interior is relaxing; the colours make me want to just lie in bed all day. This is a plus for me because quality of sleep is one of the factors I consider in choosing a hotel. The location is good. Just walk outside and you can already see the stretch of Feringghi beach....

Very clean, modern and nicely decorated hotel. Location is superb, next to the beach, slightly far from the city but if you want to escape the hustle and bustle of the city, this hotel is the place. The beach is also very clean. Will stay here again.

I stayed 10 days at the Holiday Inn resort in Penang. When you book make sure to book a room in the main building (not the mountain Ferringhi Tower).

right in the center of Batu Ferringhi beach, the local bus to Georgetown and the hop-on hop-off bus stopping right in front, the hotel is a cool way to know Penang.
