“Affordable with Good Location”
Reviewed July 7, 2014

The rates at this midtown hotel are very affordable by NYC standards. The room was clean, the bed was comfortable, the elevators reasonably fast (this can be a problem with rehabbed buildings). The best thing about this hotel is its location. Its near subway stations for most NYC MTA lines and an easy walk to many of the city's main attractions and neighborhoods.

A minor complaint is that the free breakfast leaves something to be desired. But hey, its free....

This was our second time here and couldn't be happier. Minutes from lots of great spots like broadway, Rockefeller, Empire State Building, and so much more. Full breakfast, crowded but good. This will continue to be our NYC hotel of choice.

Room Tip: We like low level rooms to take the steps instead of the elevators. No views anyways.

this hotel is right where you want to be. in the center but off the bus areas (times square). rooms are big for new York and have all the thing one needs. Breakfast is crowded and ok. depends what you want so do not expect the best. service is great and very helpful. this is new York so hotels are expensive for what you get. and this is prime location!

Room Tip: cock andf bull next door has reasonable drinks and food.

Hotel is neat and ideally located near Times Square and grand central, staff are friendly, but I found bed bug in my pillow with several bite marks on my face and ear and blood mark on pillow. They gave me a fresh pillows but they did not have new ones.

Thank you for your most valuable feedback and for having brought to our attention what had happened during your stay. After you mentioned this to us during your stay, we immediately called an offsite professional company to inspect the room you stayed in. We are glad to say that the results for any potential pests in the room came back negative. I apologize that your stay was impacted while you were here. I invite you to please contact me so we may provide you with a copy of the report that the room came back clear of any bed bugs. My email is fom@expressfifth.com. I hope we have the opportunity to have you as our guest once again so we may regain your trust.

We expected small rooms from staying in NYC in the past, so yes, the room was VERY small. But the beds were so small, my husband is 6"2 and he didn't come close to fitting. Our teenage girls had to share a bed and I think one of them would have slept on the floor, if there was room in the room, which there wasn't. The hotel is clean, breakfast fine and it's a great location to Times Square, shopping, Empire State Building, a not a far walk to Central Park. It's a stretch to see the double room can fit four adults.

Thank you for your recent review and valuable feedback. We thank you for also mentioning the positive aspects of your stay. I wish we could have provided a larger room than the one you stayed in. I have passed this feedback to my team as well. We do hope we have the opportunity in the near future to have you as our guest once again and maybe provide a room with a different layout. Thank you once again and have a great day.

It was a nice stay. It is a great location and I was able to do what I had to do in NY without having to move too much due to the great location! The only small problem is that there are only 2 elevators that are used not only by the guests but also by the staff. So you end up waiting for a while especially during the morning. Suggest to plan accordingly. Other than this detail, the service was great. Like any other holiday inn in the USA you can take a tray of breakfast to your room, which is great!

Room Tip: In NY the higher the room the better

We can not say enough good things about this wonderful, welcoming, fabulously located Holiday Inn Express. This was our fifth stay and we will be coming back again and again. Our terrific experience is largely owing to the WONDERFUL GENERAL MANAGER, MR. LEWISTON MURRAY! We spoke to Mr. Murray prior to our arrival with some special requests, to which he was extremely responsive. We felt extremely appreciated at Priority Club Platinum Elite members and felt that Mr. Murray and his staff went out of their way to be pleasant, welcoming and professional. At the front desk, our main contact was MR. ELIECER GARCIA. Mr. Garcia was welcoming, enthusiastic and gave us great, prompt advice at every turn. Like Mr. Murray, Mr. Garcia is a true asset to IHG!
Space is at a premium in NYC to say the least. Despite the small dining area, the breakfast each morning had variety and flavor and was something we looked forward to.
We look forward to our next stay next month!

Room Tip: We usually ask for a high floor, given the outside traffic noise level in Manhattan.
