Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by LIssyLola2013 WOW!!
Our experience here was OUTSTANDING! From the friendliness on the phone (Alex) to walking in and being greeted by a smile and personality (Katie). The staff is knowledgeable, professional, and friendly. The rooms are just right for a long weekend, and I HIGHLY recommend the pizza package! =) Don't be nervous about the bus station next to it...the LOCATION IS AWESOME! Thank you so much to everyone!

by Djandy Great location and great staff
Stayed for four nights in May 2013 and this hotel exceeded my expectations. It is in a great location and the rooms are clean and relatively spacious for NY and the beds were very comfortable. However, the staff make this hotel great. Every person that we spoke to on the front desk was friendly no matter what time of day or night. Even the staff that we met in the lift asked us how our stay was going and were happy to answer our questions about places to visit. I would definitely stay in this hotel again.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by BurtVegas Good location and great staff
This was my first trip to New York City. The property is located within walking distance of many attractions. Upon check-in, I was greeted by Alexander. He was very professional and courteous. He took the time to inform me about the property (location of the business center, fitness center, & restaurant) and insisted that I contact the front desk should I have any questions or concerns..
After a long day, I decided to enjoy a cocktail and dinner at the restaurant. The service at Contorno's Restaurant was great. Jayne, Spiero (Sp?), & Lisa made me feel very welcome.
My hotel room was clean and very comfortable.
I am positive that I will be staying here the next time I am in New York.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Tonoficeinaday Location and Nice Looking Room
I have been disappointed by the Holiday Inn brand on a number of occasions but not here. Though our room did not have a great view - it faced another building - it was quite attractive and appeared recently renovated.
The room was tighter than you might find at a more suburban hotel . If the the dresser was a few inches smaller you might have enough for two people to get by at the foot of the bed. There was a fridge, microwave and coffee maker in the room all of which proved useful. I would have preferred the liquid half-half rather than the powder for the coffee. The fridge had no temp control but seemed just cold enough.
The bed and pillows were comfortable.
I had requested a room far from the elevator. I did not realize until I took a quick look around the floor that there was no "far from the elevator". Though we could hear the elevator in the bathroom the noise did not make it into the bedroom area at all and we slept well.
The bathroom is tight. They choose to have that trendy basin-on-table look for the sink which looks great but limits places to place toiletries. There is shower with ample hot water but no tub. The shower has one tiny wire shelf. The little shampoo bottles kept falling over and there was not enough room for my razor. There really should be a larger shelf with flatter wires.
WiFi worked great. We never turned on the TV.
Business center computer was quick to print out train tickets.
Sure wish they had a jacuzzi or pool.
Front desk staff was friendly and helpful.
This is a great hotel and I would stay here again.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by K80M Service not as good as usual
This is a regular spot for my business travels and normally the service is excellent but this visit was not as good as usual.
The location is perfect and the value is very reasonable, which is why this is my preferred hotel for NYC.
Overall the room was excellent but a few disappointments this time:
- as Platinum PCR did not receive complementary bottle of water upon check-in
- restaurant was closed in the morning because the chef was late to work so had to go to a nearby cafe
- did not receive complementary morning paper
When I indicated to the hotel staff that my stay was not as good as usual, they dismissed me as if they didn't care.
I'll think of this as a one-off and hopefully this is not the start of a trend of declining service at this hotel, as it would be a real shame.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by blueskytv Comfortable, clean room
Great location with very clean and comfortable rooms. The rooms are not large, but how many rooms in Manhattan within a block of the Empire State Building are large? Plus, with free Wi-Fi the my 2 boys were very happy. Super location and easy to get to....when visiting New York City in the future, this is where I will stay.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Dow12344 Great location and comfortable rooms
This hotel is in a great location within a short walk of Times Square and the Empire State Building as well as all the shopping of 5th avenue. Everything a little further away is easily accessible by the subway station at 34th street. The hotel and rooms were very modern and the rooms were very well sized especially for a central city location. The breakfast was very large and delicious and the staff very friendly and helpful. I would certainly stay here again on another visit to New York.

This Holiday Inn was perfect for our trip to NYC as the main purpose of our visit was 2 shows at Madison Square Garden. The hotel is 1 1/2 blocks from the Garden. And not far to Times Square and the theaters. Room was a little small, but clean and included all of the amenities.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Robacrem327 EXCELLENT!!!
A totally new Hotel in an excellent location, near Empire State, 5th Av., Macys, Penn Station, etc. The view of the Empire State from our room was amazing. The room is very confortable, just a little small when you have a lot of baggage, but it was not a big deal. The location, the cleanliness and the kindness of the staff (reception) was exceptional. I have nothing to complain.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by LUFC192 Great stay in the middle of town
All aspects at the hotel were great. Friendly and accommodating staff. Despite the refurbishment of the lobby there were no problems accessing all facilities. The room was well furnished and comfortable with a great view of the Empire State Building. Great value and with Macy's so easily accessible a great shopping experience. Would thoroughly recommend to others and will be returning to this Holiday Inn when we visit NY again.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 This location was nothing like the others
I stayed in 2 other Holiday Inns during my 9 day vacation. Two in NYC and 1 in DC. You can see my reviews for those. This location was my first leg and started off extremely bad! The people at the front do not even hold a candle to the staff at the other locations we stayed. THey were incredibly unprofessional, rude and extremely unhelpful. I will never stay at this location when I return nor will I ever recommend to a friend. The things the gentleman did while checking us in were unacceptable. The so called manager fixed his mistake but never apologized...never even smiled once. Which was necessary in the situation. It truly worried me that this was what we were in for at the next two Holiday inn hotels. But thank goodness it's just this location. Never again...ever!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Xavi43 Great Value for Location and Attractions
I booked this hotel at the last minute and got a great deal on it. Its one street over from Korea Town, a few blocks from Penn Station, one street away from the Subway station. Great for shopping (2 Blocks away) and not to far from Times Square.
The only minor inconveinience was the construction in the lobby, but that wasn't a problem for guest traffic.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by UnhappywithHi No lobby, under construction,
For the price, you could stay at a 5 star hotel that has a lobby and common area. The room was too small for two adults and the a/c didn't work. Without an attempt by the manager to make things right by putting 4 beers and some snacks in the room, I would have asked for a refund and went to a different hotel. The hotel lobby was under construction and there was no notification when making the reservation.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Juicyfruithippo Unexpected delight
As demand in New York was very high and I had to make last minute travel plans for an important business meeting I didn't really have a choice but book the midtown holiday inn despite it undergoing building work for a facelift, there were very few rooms left in the entire city. I have to tell you, I got lucky.
Despite building works, the room was fantastic. I have stayed in hotel rooms in New York before where you could reach out and touch each wall from the comfort of your single, lumpy bed, the rooms at Holiday Inn midtown were generous in size, the bed was huge and very comfortable and the staff were cheerful, helpful and very attentive. Breakfast was very good and served promptly and the bar had a certain friendly feel backed up by the staff who were very engaging.
If your planning a stay in the big apple, this centrally located, reasonably priced and newly updated hotel is a bit of a gem.

I am a frequent traveler for leisure and work - and have stayed in hotels around the world and many hotels in New York. It is always essential for me to find a place that will be comfortable to stay in, have modern features to allow for work on the road and excellent service. I am pleased to say that the Holiday Inn 31st meets all of these expectations -- and on the service point exceeds even my very high expectations. They make you feel at home and treat you nice. I highly recommend this property.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by ILoveNY Great Stay
I usually stay in another hotel when traveling on business to NYC. Price was better here than my usual hote. Gave it a try and was super impressed. Will return on business and for leisure. Convenient location to my office on Park Ave but also to 5th Ave shopping and tourist locations. Lot's of great eating nearby as well. Hotel rooms are IMMACULATE though a bit noisy when other guests return to their rooms at 12:30 AM (why do the doors slam so loudly!). Front lobby under renovation so I will be curious to see what it looks like in a few months. Staff at check in was FANTASTIC and helpful. Will recommend and stay again for sure. Kudo's to Greg and Alex!!
