I will come again in this hotel and I will recommend it to my relatives that are planning a trip to NY.
Beds are very confortable, rooms & bath very clean.
One thing to improve: air conditioning/heating : slightly noisy

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by SLynn great stay
My sister & I visited this hotel for a long weekend. I was on a fairly strict budget so we decided to go in January right after the New Years Eve crowd had gone home. I was a initially disappointed at the price difference between a king room and two double beds, so to be economical we had booked a king for three nights. Upon arrival, the front desk immediately told us they had a room with two beds for our first two nights and offered an upgrade. After reading reviews about the slow elevator, they were also able to accommodate my request for a low floor. We never even used the elevator. We also arrived well before check in, and the front desk allowed us to drop off our bags and go explore the city. Breakfast was usually busy, but we were always able to find a seat, with a greater variety of food than I had expected (we ate around 9am everyday - i imagine the busiest time for breakfast). However, we also stayed on a slow week, it could easily get crowded if the hotel was busier. The room was a great size, and met all of our needs. Beds were very comfortable, which was appreciated after spending all day walking. The only CON here was the shower could have been hotter, it only got as much as luke warm.
The wifi was fast, and the two computer mini business center was helpful when we needed to print out boarding passes for our flight.
The front desk was always helpful. They were able to give advice on subway trains and find us a car to the airport. While we didn't use it, we were offered a later check out time for being a Priority Club member. I had only just joined prior to our stay, and wasn't expecting any such recognition.
As some others have mention, there were a few questionable characters hanging out along the street, as well as a questionable bar or two, but this is everywhere. I never felt unsafe walking back to the hotel in the evening. and overall the location was great. It was only a few blocks walk to everything we wanted to see, and with a great price.
HIE - time square definitely won me over. I would recommend this hotel to anyone who wants the proximity to Times Square on a friendly budget

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Dennis413 Quiet location but close to attractons
I was scheduled to attend a conference at one of the monster hotels in Times Square but I chose the HIE about 6 blocks away. It is in a much quieter section of Manhattan but close enough with a short walk to all the Times Square "stuff". Good price, and surprisingly comfortable room on one of the mid-level floors with a north vew of the city.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by jalfisher We Always Stay Here It's A Great Place
we travel to NYC about once a month for business and this is a fantastic hotel, the staff are very helpful, the rooms are amazing for NYC the size is great and it has always been so clean!
I would say it is nice enough to tell your best client about.
new unto date construction and furnishings . the beds are so comfortable. the towels are new clean white fluffy and plenty of them anytime we have required more pillows they are there within 5 minutes.... The breakfast is very very nice, it is free and amazing for free. plenty of choices. I can not say enough about the front desk staff, they go out of their way to help every time.

I will never stay at this property again, unless desperate, the coffee maker didn't work propery and I winded up burning my leg from the hot water that stayed in the filter, the room was as small as my home office, elevator was slow and the area was filled with hoodlums with pants down to their knees, BAD CHOICE FOR CELEBRATING NEW YEARS EVE, bucket list.......checked!
P.S. staff was very nice

I am a Platinum Elite member, and this was one of the best hotels that I have stayed in. The breakfast choices were great and the taste was superb. The rooms were a little small, however, the service I received made up for this. Will definitely stay here again.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by barbswire532 Ran out of Breakfast Bar Food, Very Late Room Service
Lines out of buffet, food was gone when we got inside for breakfast and it was before cut off time.
Room Service came by at 5 pm. By this time we were getting ready in the shower for evening out.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by laure Strategic location and a very good service
I stayed at this Hotel with my family during Christmas holidays. It's close to Times Square, a very strategic location.
The service is very good, the staff is helpful and we enjoyed our stay very much. It's a pity that the breakfast room has little space, so it was a bit busy during Christmas holidays, but breakfast is very good.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Detroit Not as close to Times Square as I thought
Nice hotel, clean. Rooms are tiny, but the beds and everything are very comfortable. You have to wait on the elevators a bit, so add that in your timing of things. Great Irish bar right down the street, great service and food.

Staff is always superb...everytime. I tend to have Jamie or Alex check me in upon arrival. They made my Christmas-In-NYC very special time for me.
Location of this hotel is also pretty great. Five minutes away from Chelsea and you can even walk to Times Square. It reminds me of a quiet side street in regards to other hotels being on the same block.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Robbins6 Awesome visit
I was so impressed with this hotel. First the price for a Times Square hotel was great. Second, the entire staff was ridiculously courteous and helpful. I was there over Christmas Eve and Christmas Day and everyone from the server at breakfast to the maid who rode up a few floors on the elevator with us smiled, greeted us, wished us happy holidays and were warm and welcoming. Third, the room was great - very nice decor, clean and fantastically comfortable bed and pillows so we slept great. Fourth the concierge and front desk staff were very helpful with the small but important details of our visit. Fifth, the location was great - easy subway access and easy walking distance to Times Square and beyond. Next time I'm back in NYC I would definitely chose to stay here again.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by BossmanD12 Great location.
As are most NYC hotel rooms these are small - but the room was comfortable and had both a desk chair and arm chair to sit in besides the bed. Good service from the front desk and bell service when we arrived - but when we were leaving it took them over 15 minutes to have someone go get our checked luggage (once they went to retrieve it they were back in 2 minutes).

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by SROMSKY Airport Transportation
All in all a Good stay at the Hotel.
One negative comment. If staff are asked to arrange transport to the Airport, they should know the cost. I was quoted a cost of $40.00 form Hotel to LGA. Asked if the Car service accepted Credit Cards. Was told yes, there would be an extra charge of $5.00 ? Visa and MasterCard prohibit these surcharges, I was paying with a Visa Card and pointed this out and was basically give a shoulder shrug by desk staff.
Upon arrival at LGA I was then told the charge was now $45.00 and additional $5.00 charge for using a Credit Card.
If Holiday Inn is going to offer this service to their guests, I would suggest they know the actual cost and deal with a service that does not have CC surcharges. This whole situation does not impact well on Holiday Inn.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by LAR1234 Comfortable, Quiet with Fantastic City View
Great location! The rooms were very clean with super comfortable bed. Very quiet and from our room (3506) we had a super view of the city and the Empire State Building. Jaime at the front desk was very welcoming and extremely cordial and helpful. Breakfast was very nice.
Only negative was that room was a tad small but that is common in NYC, And the carpeting outside the elevator could use a sprucing up!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by BigMikeS NYC-Time Square
I only have two issues/constructive criticism:
one is very common w/ALL NYC/big city hotels: elevators... plain and simple need more or speed up the one that you have.... I do not hold it gainst the hotel.... just a suggestion... too many rooms and floors for two elevators... (not that I can figure out where you can fit one in this particular hotel) ... especially in the morning when I'm trying to get to work and the EXPRESS breakfast is going on...
also, needs a comfortable chair for watching TV and reading.... I do alot of reading for both work and pleasure I like to use the privacy of my room to do that.... need a nicer chair....a decent interior designer can easily make it work in that size room...
a hotel room is my home away from home not just a place to crash between trips....
Anyway: EVERYTHING else ESPECIALLY the staff was AWESOME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I have another NYC stay coming up and didn't even think twice about staying here!!!!!!!!!!!!

We stayed at this hotel for a 6 day vacation to New York. It was our first visit, so we did not know what to expect. This hotel is conveinently located close to most things you will want to visit. Two blocks to Times Square, walking distance to Central Park and the Theatre District. Less than 1 block to subway which will take you anywhere.
Staff is very friendly and attentive.
Room is clean and decent size for what we expected coming to New York. Bed is cozy. Working heat/AC.
Note there is no safe or refrigerator in the room.
Breakfast was eggs, bacon, sausage, fresh pancakes, biscuits, muffins, bagels, cinnamon rolls, cereals, yogurt, etc.
Water, juice, coffee available all day and night.
Truly enjoyed our stay!

Just because this hotel is in NYC, there is no excuse for a facility that does not come up to the usual excellent standards of Holiday Inn. The desk personnel were rude and officious. The room was like a small closet. The dining area was inadequate. By 5:00 on the afternoon of our stay, the room had yet to be attended to, and this was on a weekday. The only plus was the excellent concierge service.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Joy4 Reasonably priced NYC hotel with great service.
This hotel at 39th and 9th was conveniently located for our recent trip to NYC. We were able to walk to Rockefeller Center, Central Park and Broadway shows. The staff was friendly and helpful. The bathroom was small with very limited counter space. I had requested a refrigerator in my room because of medication needs and did not recieve one. They only had three refrigerators for the entire property. Would stay here again.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by grumpy6 Great location
We were traveling with our kids and grandkids. This hotel is in a geat location. You can walk to Times Square, Circle Line Cruise and the Intrepid. Rooms are small, but this is New York City and space is at a premium. The breakfast area could be crowded, but you can take your tray back to your room which our grandkids really liked, "breakfast in bed". There are two computers and the staff was very attentive to keep paper and toner in the printer. A few times it was hard to get a computer as the guests would be using them for shopping or checking endless facebook messages. This was no fault of the hotel and am not sure how you would encourage users to move on in a timely manner. The staff were very helpful. We had two rooms and the first night they were on seperate floors, but the next morning they called and moved us to the same floor. I was impressed that they called us and we did not have to remind them. Best advice, get a map, find the places you want to go. I think you will be surprised at how close this hotel is to most of the popular places to visit in NYC.
