“Just we expected for a nice stay in Manhattan”
Reviewed 22 August 2014

This is a perfect located hotel, very close to main attractions (Time Square is two blocks far, for instance) of the city and to shopping area. Its rooms are small but comfortable, clean, not noisy, you have what you need at a fair value. The staff is very helpful and kind, and you have the option of the typical breakfast of Holiday Inn Express included cinamon rolls.
If you are an international traveller who arrives to Kennedy airport or other similar, I advise to use Super Shuttle service, it is cheap and efficient.

Room Tip: Rooms from 8th floor and up are suggested

4 of us stayed in this hotel for a weekend. The staff was nice and helpful. The double bed room was small but served its purpose. Same thing for the bathroom. Free Breakfast included eggs, pancakes, sausage, bacon, cereal, fruit, etc.Very centrally located. Good value for the money. Would stay here again.

So this is a basic no-frills hotel in a great location. The check-in was smooth, the staff were friendly and mostly to the point. Rooms are quite compact but functional. Bathrooms are small too but convenient and clean. Bedding is good. There is no room service (they don't even provide a complimentary bottle of water), which was quite frustrating at times. Breakfast is served in a narrow passage in the lobby and has the usual continental breakfast fare.

The cleaning staff have this habit of letting the AC run at the maximum speed thru the day even when the room is not occupied! I found this quite irritating cos the room is really cold when you enter after a long day outside! Personally, I would have preferred if the temperature was ideal.

But for a few qualms, its a good location, smiling staff and a budget accommodation.

* I can't say the hotel in itself is a great hotel, but for this small price staying in the middle of NYC with breakfast makes it great
* rooms were rather small, but bed was ok and bathroom was ok
* breakfast: don't expect a cosy table and lots of choice > there's only 5 small tables for 60 guests, but since everybody leaves the hotel at a different time, you'll find a spot
* breakfast is fully "help yourself": there's bread, cornflakes, eggs, orange juice, coffee and tea. That's it, but for us it was ok to start the day.
* I would stay there again

Great location to visit NYC. The room was clean. The staff friendly. Overall, the hotel is very outdated and needs a serious refresh. Services very limited. The reception/breakfast area setup is quite ugly. The breakfast is under average.

I recently stayed here for 3 nights for a vacation trip in NYC. The best thing about the hotel is the location - perfect location!!! It is apx 2 blocks from Times Square, 2 from Grand Central, 2 from Rockefeller, and a short walk to Central Park. Despite the centralized location the rooms were quite and we could not hear street traffic at all! I traveled with three teenage boys and they 4 of us shared a 2 double bed room. The room was smaller than the average hotel room but a normal size for NYC. We did not feel overly squished in our hotel room. The rooms and entire hotel were very clean and modern. I interacted with the front desk staff quite a bit and they were pleasant and helpful during our entire stay. An added bonus (and great money saver) is that the hotel has both free wi-fi (worked well!) and free breakfast. Breakfast area was small, but they did provide trays so you could take food to your room.
I have been to NYC several times before and this is the best hotel we have stayed in! If I come back to NYC again, I will plan on staying at this hotel!

Great hotel. Location is perfect, very central yet not noisy.

Staff are lovely. Especially Denis who checked us in. Breakfast and wifi a lovely bonus and free tea and coffee 24 hours is fab. We often popped in inbetween shopping to drop bags and get a take away drink.

Rooms are decent size for a New York hotel and our room was cleaned every day. Excellent value for money.

Highly recommended.
