Nice Hotel
Good location in a safe area close to restaurants, the Gautrain and Nelson Mandela Square
The room was neat and clean - staff very responsive to any requests - excellent latte in the coffee bar. Breakfast buffet extensive and delicious. Enjoyed the roof top swimming pool too. At check-in the desk clerk was told to assist a gentleman behind me even though I was next in line -- he was dressed in a business suit and presumably 'more important' than a tourist. The clerk later apologized but that's not how to treat guests. All other staff were helpful, responsive and pleasant.

Friendly and value for money
1) Friendly and attentive staff 2) Clean room 3) In-room wi-fi
It was a pleasure. The front desk staff were well trained. Checking in and check-out were fast and prompt. Internet access was available in-room. Location wise-it's 15mins walk to Mandela Square/Shopping/Dining. Easy accessible to major highways. Parking is not complimentary for hotel guests although it is discounted per exit.

Overall OK but not 4 star for sure
Location, big bed room, good decoration at the hotel lobby.
I stayed in Holiday Inn Sandton last two years and most of things about this hotel remain the same except"service" as I have spent a week here again this time it will be my last time! Room has no amenities only soap and after we have informed the house keeping that we need shampoo and amenities in room they have filled just one time. I have wet in bathroom and waiting for a bottle of hair shampoo for ten minutes !!! As a business trip does not allow me to carry too much stuff and I never have to prepare an amenity for bathroom before its made me feel that the hotel being too cheap for being 4 star standard. Also the AC in room made too much of noise almost impossible to set as its went off itself every few hours. The hotel says that they do provide shuttle to the Mandala Sqaure but they are never punctual. Unlikely the others hotel in Sandton the shuttle will always wait for the customer and frequently you can see them come and pickup their guess. Apart from a good location that you can walk(10 minutes) to Mandala Square and good size of room ...I was not impress with the poor service.
