Fantastic brand new hotel!!
Booked on Priceline for good price (NY is expensive). We arrived over 2 hours early on a Thursday and our room was ready. Front desk was super nice, let us know of the free breakfast and free water bottles (you can get this at anytime). We would be gone all day sightseeing, come back to freshen up for dinner, and ask for two water bottles, no questions asked.
Room is decently sized, most people know that NY hotels are small, so please don't think you are gonna have a huge suite. And plus, are you in your room that much anyway when you have the gorgeous NY at your feet? Bathroom is small, but once again, nothing huge is needed. Bed was SUPER comfy and it was awesome to know we had a king size in that room. Our view was a great little bar called the Keg Room -- check it out.
Great location as well, only a couple of blocks from Times Square and plenty of food/bars around the area. We never had a problem with noise (yet we stayed at the end of October, so I can't say what it would be like in the Summer).
We never had a problem with breakfast--we would get there around 9:00 and there was PLENTY of food, now a seat is another problem. One of us would have to reserve the seat while the other got food. No big deal though. And their cinnamon rolls?? OMG soo good! Apparently not all Holiday Inn Express have these, so make sure to get some.
If we ever go to NY again, I am sure we will be staying here!
