“Cannot believe this can call itself a holiday inn express”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed December 21, 2013

okay, so stayed here when we were going to a gig at the Barclays centre in Brooklyn. On that note, from a location point of view its not bad, about a 15min walk back from the venue. That's the best part!!
This hotel is in the back streets of brooklyn. There's a lot of industry around it, our room overlooked some sort of truck yard with reverse beeping featuring in our efforts to sleep.
Now its december so it's cold. The heater in the room is so noisy it's difficult to sleep with it on. Without it, the room is freezing and, if you can believe this..... the hotel doesn't have a blanket or a duvet. You sleep under sheets, yes sheets, after trying for hours to sleep we actually got out of bed and put our clothes back on.
The door to the room, when shut, left a 10-15mm gap all the way around. I brought this to their attention and they said well as long as no one can get in!! What, you could see daylight through it, anyone in the hallway might as well be in the room when they spoke, and the light from the hall outside kept the room inside light. There is no safe in the room, so i took our passports and cash ( international travellers ) down to reception to use their advertised safe. "Sorry, we only have one and its in use!!" Seriously.
This place is a disgrace and should be removed from the IHG group with whom I spend a lot of money.

Room Tip: Stay somewhere else - if you don't have a car, don't even think about it. You'll have no...
