The title of Holiday Inn "Times Square", can be a bit misleading, as it is on the outer limits of that zone, but none the less it is a comfortable New York hotel with some good access points. Located on W 39 Street, it is about a 10 minute walk to Times Square proper, Penn Street station, and some of the river locations. Metro stations can be found nearby at 42nd Street or Penn Station, for wider access to New York attractions. It can take a little bit of getting used to the Metro, but is a good way of getting around, just remember that one hole in the ground may only give you access to one platform and not the other. You learn after your first mistake.
The hotel is a typical Holiday Inn Express. It has six rooms on each floor, and whilst they are compact, they are comfortable, and provide most amenities. A fridge was not in our room, and you may not be able to get one, but ice machines are available on certain floors to keep drinks cool. The rooms are air-conditioned with a floor unit. I froze while at the desk doing some work, but other than that it was fine.
Free wi-fi works a treat, and certainly that is a boon when you can use skype in video mode to save on your phone bills.
Breakfast is included and is taken in the breakfast room. The food is standard fast food service type, the hot option having a "manufactured" feel about it, but still quite tasty. In summary there is plenty to eat and drink.
Would I stay again? Yes. We had a special rate at an average of $300 night, so it is not cheap, but in New York, you can pay a lot more and get a lot less, just to be a few metres closer to Times Square.
