We had a great stay the HI LES during 4th of July. This hotel served as a great base to view the Macy's 4th of July fireworks over the Brooklyn Bridge. This is my first time staying in a Holiday Inn branded property, and my expectations were exceeded. The service was great and on par with most other IHG properties that I have stayed in over the years. Updated room, on par with most modern style rooms in the city. We were upgraded to an executive room on the top floor, so I'm assuming the room had more space than a standard room. The space was more than adequate for two people. Everything was clean and new. Bathroom was large for NY standards and we had a great view of the new One tower. Staff were always polite. We are used to staying right in the middle of the hustle and bustle of the city (Times Sq., UES, UWS, ect.). This property is somewhat on the outskirts of Manhattan and bit more quiet one could say, which was a welcoming change. Still some traffic on Delancey though. There are not a lot of the tall buildings immediately surrounding the hotel that one would associate with NY. The area almost has a residential feel to it and there seemed to be more locals than tourists. Subway is very close and convenient to multiple locations around the city. This area is surrounded by some of our favorite areas in the city including SoHo, Chinatown, and Little Italy. There is a 7-11 near by which served our purposes for snacks and water. This location is also very close to Brooklyn which we visited. If you do face Delancey, it will be a little noisy at night, but the AC typically drowns a good amount of the noise out. The AC is a bit noisy and is pretty powerful, so it may a little uncomfortable is you are sleeping on the side of the bed that is closest to it. Privately operated parking lot is across the street from the hotel with good prices. All in all, we had a great stay. We visit the city about 10 times a year, so we will absolutely be back at the HI LES. Highly recommended!
Quick recommendations: Doughnut Plant is a few short blocks away. You must try the Tres Leches doughnut! Clinton Street Baking Company is a few blocks away also!
