“Good Size Rooms and Convenient Location”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 3, 2013

Our family went to NYC on December 23rd overnight and stayed at the Holiday Inn! The room was clean and a good size. The bathroom was little small but it was worth it to have the extra space in the room. We drove in from CT and used the parking at the hotel. It was $27.00 for 24 hours. That is very reasonable in NYC. The hotel is very close to Central Park West. We walked to 5th Avenue and Times Square. We didn't pay much for the hotel so it was a great value for what we got. However if I had to pay $300.00 or more I would probably stay closer to Time Square.

Once you got past reception the hotel was tired and the room very substandard. The double room was dark, The heating didn't work, the air con didn't work - there wasn't even a dial on the temperature setting - it had obviously gone missing ages before. The double bed had one bedside table and one bedside light - useless if two of you want to read in bed. The wardrobe had just 5 coathangers in total for two people. As there were two of us with 3 cases of clothes we had to live out of the suitcases.

The bathroom fan ran continuosly 24 hrs per day and as it was next to the bed the noise kept us awake.

On checking out we wanted to leave our cases at the hotel for 2 hours before our airport taxi arrived. A member of staff attempted to charge us $5 per case for the priviledge. Instead we just sat in reception with the cases rather than submit to a member of staff trying to operate his own profit making scam ( the charge was not Company policy), although a senior member of staff knew of the practice as we saw him tell the employee to return the cash when another guest complained.

From experience I expected far more from a Holiday Inn - this was the worst by far.

I wrote an e-mail of complaint on returning home but to no great surprise I received no reply.

AVOID

Room Tip: Avoid this hotel.

Only 2 blocks from central park, as well as the natural history museam and the pick up point for the open top tour bus, get the red bus not the yellow one, as the red one runs longer. It takes you to all the central stops for the statue of liberty, ellis island etc, wasnt impressed with the empire state building, a long wait just to look over the city. Clean hotel easy to find, restaurant on site and near by. Staff freindly, room service good to. Buy the city pass to see all the sites, you save a lot of money.

Just read a review by "ruiNruiN" stating there is not subway service nearby to Times Square or Hell's Kitchen. However, there is a subway entrance less than a 2 minute walk up 57th St, for the Columbus Circle/59th Street Station. The entrance is right next to Sur La Table. This station is served by the 1,2,A,B,C and D trains. You can get anywhere in the city from here via subway. IMO, if you are looking for a reasonable hotel and plan on using the subway - this is the place for you. And, if you'd like to walk and explore Central Park, Times Square, Hell's Kitchen, Theater District, Lincoln Center are all within walking distance (depending of course on what you consider to be a 'reasonable' walk). Cold weather, rain, etc, can certainly make walking not much fun.
Our room was on the 8th floor (North Tower A) and I read signs the rooms were going to be renovated, ours appeared to have new carpet, bedding, furnishings and TV. The beds were very comfortable, the room was very large (especially for NYC). We never used the heat or AC so I can't comment on other's complaints about that. The bathroom was clean, fixtures worked well and plenty of water pressure and hot water. Our room was ready early and the front desk was pleasant and quick. Being on the 8th floor, were is some 'city noise' but it was not bothersome. There are so many great places to eat around the hotel, we did not dine there. We would usually get breakfast at Morning Star, Route 66 Cafe or Europan Bakery. For dinner we had excellent meals at Whym, Puttanesca and Kennedy's. All of the food offerings around here are very reasonably priced.
The only reason I didn't rate it 'excellent' is..well, it's still a Holiday Inn - I would say it's an 'excellent' Holiday Inn and a very good++ hotel in general.
We stayed here from 12/22-12/26/12 and had great time in NYC. I would recommend this hotel and would stay here again.

Spent a night here after three excruciating nights in a hostel. Felt like a huge breath of fresh air! The check-in process was quick and efficient. I got there early but they were ready to give me a room right away. The room was clean, spacious and well-maintained. Concierge was helpful and knowledgeable. Breakfast in the restaurant was ok. The location, though, is not that great. There's absolutely no subway station nearby with lines that would take you to Times Sq. If you want to go to places in Times Sq or Hell's Kitchen the easiest way to do it is to walk 10 blocks. I'm from Texas so too much walking is incompatible with with life in my book, especially when it's freezing out. Otherwise, this place was great and I would consider staying here again if there's a good deal coming along.

My family and i have stayed in this hotel for the last couple of years for the weekend. Close to time square and lots of a attractions for fraction of te price. Parking is reasonable for NY. $44 but if you stay in the hotel it's only $27. Highly reccommend for a short stay great for budget. Elevelors are slow that's the only down fall.
