“Awesome hotel close to everything!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 19, 2013

I stayed at the Holday Inn Express Herald Square in New York and loved it! I stayed here for work - it is an excellent business hotel and would also be a great tourist hotel. The hotel was brand new as of my stay in May, 2013. The location is excellent - just a few blocks from Herald Square, the Empire State Building, Macy's, Times Square, and many other attractions. In addition to the great facility and location, the staff was super helpful.

Room Tip: Ask for the highest floor possible for the best view.

Enjoyed a 2 night stay with my family here. Front desk staff is very helpful. Free breakfast is great! Newer hotel, comfy beds, good price for NY. No fridge in room but Ice machine was close. Internet area is nice.

We were in NYC for one night to see Mamma Mia and were looking for a nice place to sleep that was close to Times Square and the theater district but reasonably priced. As long as you understand ahead of time that this is an express hotel so the rooms are smaller than average and the amenities are different than at the higher priced hotels I don't think you will be disappointed. The staff was very friendly and helpful, the rooms were clean and the location great for quick access to public transportation, times sq and the theatre district. Our room was around $80 less per night than the other hotels in the area.

I went with a group of friends to enjoy a weekend in NYC. We wanted to stay at a hotel in mid-town for the convenience. After looking at several hotels in the area we chose the Holiday Inn Express in Herald Square 36th because the price was right and it served free breakfast. When we return we will stay at this hotel again but not for the same reasons. We will stay based on the wonderful, friendly and accomodating staff. From the check in staff to the cleaning people everyone spoke in a friendly manner, asked how we were enjoying our trip and if we needed anything which added to the overall pleasurable experience we had in NYC. I travel often and I cannot say enough great things about the stay. The lobby was bright and welcoming. The rooms were perfect and modern. Loved it!

My wife and I spent 4 days here and had a wonderful time. The location is excellent for both business and pleasure.We were on the 18th floor in a room with a view of the city skyline. The room was quiet and clean ,the bed very comfortable , breakfast was fine, WIFI worked well, the elevators were quite fast and the staff were courteous . I would especially like to single out Lauren who was extremely helpful , always had a big smile and greeted us by name whenever we returned to the hotel. Highly recommended

This place is brand spanking new but operates with the efficiency of an experienced hotel. The staff is very friendly and helpful. The rooms are nice, clean and very comfortable. The bed was super comfy and the A/C worked great in the NYC summer heat. I can't stress enough what a great location this is. It's convenient to several of the subway stations and you can walk to Times Square or to see a Broadway show. There is a wide selection of dining options within a blocks walk too. You can find korean, steak, pub food, deli, pizza, and hamburgers all within a one square block area of the hotel. It's located half way between 5th and 6th on 36th Street which makes it a quiet location. I found it to be much quieter than places I've stayed at around the block on 35th since there is much less traffic on 36th. There are about 8 rooms on a floor which helps keep the noise down as well. I'm sure it was booked solid when we were there but our room and floor were as peaceful as could be. We stayed several nights and enjoyed our stay. I would definitely recommend this property and book it again on future trips.
