“Perfect NYC hotel ”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 26, 2014

We stayed here as part of our trip around america, for a little less than a week. We arrived early and had to wait a while for our room but ended up being upgraded, which was nice. The rooms are lovely and new, very comfortable beds and pillows. The bathrooms are perfect, nice showers etc. The staff were always very helpful during our stay, whether it be calling us private cars, giving us directions and helping with all sorts of things. No attitude in this hotel. Located in lower East side, you get to see what I think is the real new york, so little italy, soho and China town within walking distance. All great areas. Katz deli is definitely worth a visit which is a 4 min walk from the hotel. Also some great bars with live music. The hotel is right next to the subway station, which works out to be very handy! Yes the rooms are small, but they are in any hotel in nyc. They make good use of the space however. The diner downstairs gives you a good breakfast each morning, the pancakes being very nice indeed. Normally understaffed but very friendly none the less. A very reasonably priced, well located hotel . I would definitely stay here again.

Stayed April 2014, traveled as a couple

I think that the hotel is new, it's very clean and very modern. The bed was comfortable and the room was a decent size. I had a regular room with 2 double beds and it was a good size. The hotel is few steps from the subway station, so that's great. You can walk to 2 great breakfast places. Try the Wafels and Dinges and the Heaven's hot bagels. You really need to try the Wafels and Dinges. It's soooo good.

The Holiday Inn on the Lower East side is a nice new hotel. The rooms are very modern and new. As with most hotels in the city, the rooms are very small. They did a great job furnishing and decorating them, however, to make good use of what little space they did have. The bathrooms are really nice. Rooms are clean, and the staff is friendly. The location is great, as well, as we walked to many bars. Be prepared to pay quite a bit for parking that is a few blocks away, however.

Simple and clean, quiet, new hotel, conveniently located near the subway. Comfortable beds. They do not have rollaways. Rooms relatively small. Worked out great for myself and two teenage sons on our first trip to NYC. Only negatives were (1) the bar downstairs closed early because it was not busy enough; and (2) arranged car ride to the airport showed up 20 minutes late. Fortunately we were still at the airport with plenty of time to make our flight. We went during an expensive time of year (Easter week) and got a good deal on this hotel through Hotwire.

Hello Scott549!

Greetings from the Holiday Inn NYC-Lower East Side! It is delighting to read you enjoyed your stay with us and were able to relax and enjoy your first visit to NYC! It is saddening to read you were not able to enjoy the amazing Retro Bar and Grill. We certainly apologize for the slight delay on your transportation to the airport, sometimes NYC traffic is inevitable. We certainly look forward to your future stay with us and for additional savings on your next booking take advantage of our Book Smart- Deals that Work offer!

We stayed here because it was the "designated" hotel for a family wedding and all the venues were closeby. Had some doubts about a "Holiday Inn" when there are lots of hotel options nearby. This was an outstanding experience. The staff at the hotel were welcoming, friendly and helpful at all times. No New York attitude. Rooms look recently redone with fresh modern furnishings and were very clean.They have every portal imaginable for your electronic devices, comfortable beds/pillows.
Okay, the rooms are compact - it's New York! Good location to explore Lower East Side ( hotel front on Delancey) which is a very cool neighborhood with many restaurants/shops and Soho is a short walk. Two subway stops are very close to hotel. The outside looks pretty much like any Holiday Inn, but the inside is a different story. We recommend this to anyone who wishes to explore this part of NYC.

My daughter (age 14) and I visited New York for the first time and booked this Holiday Inn, trusting the name and having read the reviews. We were not disappointed. The location was great, with 2 subway stations very close by and everything we needed right on Delancey Street (Duane Reade, ATM's, McDonalds etc)!
We took a cab most days and it was relatively inexpensive to get to all the main tourist attractions. Hailing a cab outside the hotel became a breeze and the subway was easily navigated too and within very easy walking distance!
I'd not hesitate to stay here again. The staff were lovely and the Retro Diner was great. My daughter loved the pancakes. Our room was on the 3rd floor and was quiet and above all, clean. I'll be honest, I was nervous about the location at first but I felt safe and relaxed here the whole time and by night 2 it started to feel like "home." I miss New York and we've only been home 2 days! Our New York experience was amazing and that's also thanks to our hotel. We will see you again soon, for sure!!
