My wife and I went to New York for the first time at the end of June 2014 and stayed at the Holiday Inn Express – Manhattan Midtown West, and we would strongly recommend staying there to others. First the staff is excellent, as they are focused on the guests; they always had time for a question or a suggestion. Second the Holiday Inn Express includes breakfast. It is a good hot/cold breakfast and it was nice to eat a full breakfast and then head out the door exploring for the rest of the day. Third, location, location, location, you will be south of Central Park, west of Time Square and the Broadway shows and north of downtown, accessible by bus, cab, subway or an ambitious walk! And don’t forget on the harbor on the west. We took a dusk boat cruise around Manhattan Island that was a highlight of our trip.
A little reality; the room was clean, modern and small. It basically contained a king size bed, big screen TV, and a washroom. It worked for us, because we had good weather and were out of our room for the morning. And then we had a nap and watched soccer in the afternoon and then we were off for a nice dinner and exploring or seeing a show.
Hotel on 48th street and “Restaurant Row” was on 46th street, a short walk away.
If we go back to Manhattan we would stay here again.
PS don’t let anyone put anything in your hand. If you do, the hustle is going to come. Do a little homework up front and find out what packages work for you before your trip. Enjoy!
