The Holiday Inn on Delancey is cheap, new, spacious and in a very easy location. We usually stay at boutique hotels, but booked the Holiday Inn because the price of rooms for that particular weekend were extremely high. The room was new, spacious by NYC standards, and offered all necessary amenities. The staff was helpful and the location, minus Delancey, was great. There are good bars and restaurants nearby and the subway was close. I would stay at the Holiday Inn Lower East Side again and recommend it for people with a budget in mind who are willing to sacrifice some personality in lodging. It was completely comfortable and I have no complaints.
