Me and my Boyfriend travelled from the UK to stay here for a 5 night trip. Flew in to JFK, so the taxi fee was approx $100 but it was late and we just wanted to get there!
When we arrived, the guy on conceirge (forgot his name) but he was so helpful and chatty, really welcoming. I was a little worried about staying here after reading other people's negative experiences (mostly about the hotel's location) Don't get me wrong, you can't just jump on a bus, and end up in Times Square, BUT there is bus stop literally RIGHT outside the hotel. Bus runs every 10 minutes!! it takes you over George Washington Bridge, (for $2.50) and drops you off at the Subway (which then takes you to wherever you fancy) We pretty much rode the A-Train the whole time (taking you to the main places, Time Square, Central Park etc)
Coming BACK from Manhattan took a while to work out.... the bus that drops us off at the Subway (George WAshington Bridge) stops running after a certain time, so if you're out late in Manhattan, when you get off at the GW subway, you then need to walk and get a cab from the street to take you over the GW bridge back to the Holiday Inn (but this only costs approx $8) so not too bad. BIG TIP: go to conceirge and ask for the bus/taxi info. It is sooo good and explains all of this in more detail. Hotel was clean, spacious room, nice shower too. Great base for exploring!
