Let me start by saying... "what's all the fuss about staying in or near Times Square" ?
Cabs are cheap, New York Roads are so easy to navigate through and you can find the best hotels barely a $10 ride away.
The Good :
The hotel is located a few minutes away from Times Square and the staff are helpful and friendly, breakfast is on the house and internet is free.
The room is so damn tiny !!... if you're expecting to be sentenced to a cell in solitary confinement, a room at the Holiday Inn is all you need as practice.
The internet is so terribly slow, you'd probably slit your wrists in frustration. The management should really look at improving the speed to give guests an option to upgrade to something that will help you retain your sanity by the end of your stay
The lifts are slow. I knew all the guests on my floor. We chatted while waiting for the lift
The carpets are filthy. The management needs to wake up and have them changed to a colour that makes the tiny rooms come alive. Please guys... do yourselves a favour and get the carpets changed or replace them with tiled or parquet flooring
The emergency doors open outwards. Could hurt someone waiting for the now famously slow lifts
Better hotels can be found right outside or in the middle of Times Square. If you want to live like a star, find a hotel near Central Park instead
Probably the worst hotel of my US and Canada holiday.
