PROS: Nice rooms Location Location Location Price CONS: Slow elevators OVERALL: Great place to stay and near madison sq garden and 2 subway stops. Rooms are nice. The elevators are slow so you are not getting out fast, but this is not a deal breaker. This is a great middle of the road hotel and I would stay at again.

The room was just what you would expect for a Holiday Inn - clean and comfortable. The breakfast was standard fare a little crowded. The hotel is located three blocks from NYC Penn Station and was within easy walking distance. Rafael, at the front desk was very helpful! There is a great deli at the corner of 7th Ave. and...

Flew in from Toronto for a Monday night to attend a Billy Joel concert. Got a superb corporate rate which made it a bargain! The hotel is clean, respectable and surprisingly quiet - barely 3 blocks walk from Madison Square Gardens (and Penn station). It's NYC so the room was not huge but who needs a big room when you're...

Arrived at the hotel early on the Wednesday before Thanksgiving. Our room was not quite ready but the front desk staff checked our bags so we could start exploring. Returned around noon and got checked in. Fast, easy process, very friendly staff. Our room was small but we weren't expecting anything different. The only time we were in the room...

Good location to many Midtown places. The staying experience is like in any other Holiday Inn Express hotels: Consistently the same, which is not bad. We asked for upgrade - what a nice way get more income for upper floors - and got it. On that floor - 8 - the stay was a nice one: The room was quit,...

Manhattan hotels are expensive so you need to know what you pay for is not the same from your own hometown. This place is in a good location but most off all it is clean and comfortable. Not 5 stars but you do get what you pay for in Manhattan. We stayed one night at Hotel Pennsylvania for a little...

After several business trips to Midtown recently, I decided to try the HI Express on 29th Street. Convenient location to much of Midtown. Great friendly staff. Several restaurants within walking distance; Mustang Harry's, Haymaker, etc. Clean nice hotel rooms. Lobby improvements in progress. Good free breakfast in lobby. Rates vary wildly depending on the day & events. Free Wi-Fi.

I stayed here while traveling with a school group of 30 high school students. There was some construction going on, as evidenced by the scaffolding at the entrance, but that that did not interfere with our stay. The rooms are a bit small, but clean and comfortable. We did not spend much time in the rooms, so the size of...

Neighborhood Profile
Chelsea
Home to hundreds of art galleries, beautiful brownstones, and one of New York’s newest and most popular attractions, Chelsea is one of the city’s jewels when it comes to neighborhood life. The contemporary art scene is an integral part of the neighborhood’s identity, with gallery openings almost every night of the week and countless exhibits to explore. As a longtime hub of gay culture in New York City, it’s also a diverse district with a vibrant nightlife scene. The opening of the High Line, an abandoned elevated train track transformed into a world-class pedestrian park, gave this neighborhood new life as a tourist destination. The High Line provides visitors with a tranquil, elevated space with incomparable views, providing an unparalleled way to experience the city.
