In compare with other Holiday Inn hotels in Europe or Russia where I was it's not best one. Old rooms, somewhere are bit dirty. But good location, a lot of restaurants (cheap and not) with international cuisine (Thai, Chinese, Italian, etc) are placed around, close to Central park, 24 hours parking. Price are very good for hotel in New York.

10 mins to Broadway but far enough off the beaten path to not be swarmed with touristy types. Great neighborhood for eclectic food. The hotel itself is nice but nothing to rave about. I had a deluxe king room which was fine though the shower was not updated.

Conveniently placed hotel to get out & about. Large clean rooms with housekeeping and clean towels daily. Free local newspaper. Buffet breakfast ideal and reasonably priced. Pool area great with pool bar & snacks. Only criticism was the attitude of one of the reception stuff when we queried our room allocations. Other than that the rest of the staff were excellent would definitely stay here again.

The hotel was exactly as expected; big busy lobby, semi-renovated, helpful staff. The room, with two queen beds, was much larger than expected and very quiet. There were a group of guys staying in the room next to ours and we only heard them when we were in the hallway. Housekeeping did a good job even though the room was a little beat up - but not dated.
The best part was the rooftop pool. What a nice surprise! We brought our own breakfast, but it would have been great if it was offered.

Check in was a breeze, as well as check out, our room was very clean with all the neccassary and expected amenities,the enitre staff, as well as the housekeeping staff was very friendly and very helpful. I've spent 3 nights here on 2 seperate occasions and there were no issues. I've stayed at the more up scale pricer hotels down the street and for the value this hotel is more accomadating and more prefered. I would recommend this hotel to anyone who is looking for a reasonaable value, clean, friendly and conveniently located for getting around NYC..Please keep up the great work guys.. Thanks
