I am so annoyed it has taken me so long to get round to writing this. I visited 1-6 Dec 2012.
I have to admit that I can usually find fault with most things but not this Hotel.
We were too early for check in - but we got to leave our bags, use the toilet etc and then went straight out to explore. We had rooms 3104 and 3106. As it was a trip for my parents joint 50th Birthdays I had been pestering the hotel with emails to make sure that our trip was perfect. We got rooms on the same floor with only one room between us, we both had an amazing view of the Empire State Building. In my parents room there was a little card and some chocolates for their birthday. The rooms were big enough, larger than I expected, clean and well equipped. Breakfast was great, we tended to go around the same time each morning between about 7.45 and 8.00. It varied in busyness but we always got a table. Plenty of choice and enough to fill you up for the day ahead(every other hotel I looked at didn't include breakfast). The breakfast staff were always very polite and helpful.
Location was just right for us, just a short walk from Times Square, Hell's Kitchen flea market at the end of the street and then just another 5-10 minute walk in that direction to the pier for boat tours and the Intrepid Museum. We were very sorry to leave this hotel (again we got to leave our luggage after check-out so we could still enjoy our last day).
This hotel was in fact not on either of my first 2 shortlists of hotels - but prices proved more expensive than I had thought when I went to book so you could say this was sort of a last resort hotel - but my god I'm glad it was. I will hopefully be back in New York one day and I will definitely be staying at the Holiday Inn Express Times Square. Thank you to all the staff - what a brilliant hotel.
