Our first time in NYC saw us stay at the Holiday Inn Madison Square Garden. Located on 29th Street, it is just a five minute walk from Penn Station from where we'd arrived into the City.
The rooms, like many in big cities, aren't the largest, but they are well appointed and are clean and tidy. We weren't there for the room, we were there to explore the sights of the Big Apple.
The hotel offers a free coffee station on the ground floor, whilst there's a self-service breakfast that comes with the price - a rarity in the US. Everyday we loaded up on juices, coffee, cereals and cakes.
The weather was great so on most days we sat outside at the tables and watched the world go to work whilst enjoying breakfast.
The hotel is easily within walking distance of Time Square, Empire State Building, Rockefeller and the Flat Iron, the subway is right around the corner for those trips further afield.
We enjoyed our stay there, but one word of advice, don't arrange a cab to the airport with the hotel. We were assured that the price included the cost of the toll, the cab driver held a different view, it was a good job we had some spare dollars to pay him.
We'll surely visit NYC again, and wouldn't hesitate to stop at the same place.
