Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by CarolLK Great Location and Hotel for First New York Stay
I was really pleased with my stay. The bedding was awesome and the staff were very friendly. Just a general comment, (for any hotel in general) would love for the side chair to be a recliner. I fly alot, and having a place to elevate my feet helps with the swelling ankles. Also wish it would be possible to include a microfridge in the room as is standard with most HI Express properties, however I know space is at a premium in New York, and not really sure where it could be put. The location can't be beat! Tromped all over Manhattan during my free time away from seminar. Didn't take any time at all to get where I wanted simply by walking.

This hotel is only half a block off of 5th Avenue. It's only a few miutes walk to Grand Central Station, Times Square, Rockerfeller Center and the shops on 5th Ave. We arrived early and they held our luggage til we came back for check in. The staff was very polite and the room was decent. Breakfast was good and very easy check in and check out. We will most likely stay here again when we visit New York again.

Staff was excellent, very helpful and very friendly. This was our first stay in NYC so I was shocked by the room and lobby size. They were tiny! We were close to everything we wanted to see and do so that was a plus. Overall our experience was good.

The staff were outstanding as they made us feel very welcomed. The room was great and the daily breakfast was very good. Glad to see they had hot/cold items along with healthy choices. I would definitely stay here again my next trip to NYC.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by JB521 Great hotel in the heart of it all!
We spent two nights at the Holiday Inn Express and found the property to be exactly what we were looking for - a relaxing place to unwind after spending all day in the city! After running a half marathon in Central Park, it was great to walk back to the hotel and relax before heading to a Yankees game that evening! Great access to all the shopping, Bryant Park, any shows you want to attend, and great food! Would stay here again for sure!

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Peter18 Decent stay in the middle of Manhattan
The room was small, but has everything one needs and was clean. The complimentary breakfast was ok for one night, but the breakfastroom is a small space for a lot of people with a limited choice, so for the second morning I went to a nice restaurant a couple of meters down the road.
This hotel is perfect for a short stay in the Big Apple, it's close to a lot of highlights. The staff is friendly and helpful. Two elevators are too few for the building, in the morning I had to wait 15 minutes to get one.
In short, good hotel, don't expect too much.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by RN3613 staff had great information
staff were spot on with referrals for sights and food, recommended the Italian place next door and was the best food and service ever! Close to time square and just down from grand central, even handicapped I was able to walk pretty much where I wanted to go, thanks to staff directing me in the most direct way.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 Responsive and thankful
I've stayed at this particular Holiday Inn Express before and I will continue to come back. This trip was made interesting by having the water on the 22nd floor not work. Every now and then it would piddle out of the faucet and after I called the front desk, they told me that in fact there was an issue and they were working on it. I had a few high level appointments that day and needed to shower so they gave me room 102 which was right by the elevator to shower in. I went downstairs and took my shower, then after asking the desk how long before the water would be reactivated on 22nd level, I opted to move everything into #102. They tried to talk me out of it because of the noise level and I explained it was no big deal and this way they didn't have to clean the room again for another 2 days.
I enjoyed the stay on the bottom level and never thought twice about it. I was able to get a late checkout and they put my bags in the holding area and my last day was spent working in the lobby waiting for the right time to leave. I will continue to book my stays in NYC at this address. Always a pleasure.

Felt welcomed at the front desk. Staff was friendly.
Only thing was there was no water provided and we have to buy our own water for the duration of our stay. If drinking water can be provided, the stay would be perfect.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by JV51 A Great Place To Stay
This hotel is a great place to stay while visiting Manhattan. It is very close to the theater district and Times Square. It is also not far from Central Park. With its close proximity to the subway, you are literally minutes away from any place you want to visit while in the city. This coupled with the staff and service of the hotel makes your stay most comfortable and pleasant. We could not have asked for a better place to stay while we combined business and pleasure while in the city!

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by JMiller Avoid if Possible
I was staying at this hotel for 19 nights, first night that I arrived the deadbolt on the door was not functioning, the next day maintenance tried to resolve this but when he attempted to fix this the door did not lock properly and had to stay another night of an unsecured room .
No where was it mentioned that construction was going on at the property and the the contractors will be using 1 of the 2 elevators for guest, being on the 20th floor its not an option to take the stairs up and down.
I was promised by one of the PM Front Desk agents that I would get a refrigerator because I was an extended stay guest but none were available that night, next morning the AM Front Desk agent did not have a clue what I was talking about and wanted to charged me $25.00
One night of my stay it took over an hour to get hot water to my room, the front desk stated that one of the boilers was not functioning

I left my watch behind and was contacted by House keeping so that they could return the watch, they were willing to mail it to me but I was in town the next day and they held it at the front desk. I have never had the experience of having house keeping go the distance to call with a found item.
Thank You and you should that them, they made me a return customer.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Ande39 Comfortable and Quiet Rooms...great value!
This was our fourth time staying at this particular Holiday Inn Express, and we plan to return again. For the money it is hands down the best value in town! The only draw back being the very small eating area for breakfast. The staff is courteous and prompt and the rooms are always clean and comfortable. The location is perfect for our needs. I would recommend this hotel to anyone who is on a budget but would like to have an "above your budget" experience.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Nina27 One night stay
The room was clean and neat. The room was very small and that was not expected. Juice machine and vending machines were not working properly and staff was not very helpful. The staff also started cleaning rooms around 7 am. They were very noisy and knocked on our door several times to clean the room even though we asked for a late check out. This was very annoying as we had a late night in meeting due to work and would of liked to sleep in a little. Tv in room also did not work properly. I have stayed in many holiday inns and this one was the poorest one I have even witnessed.

Great location and people that work here. Kelly and Maria really care and always make a point to ask how I am doing. When I have a problem anyone at the front dest jumps right in and rights whatever wrong there is, that what I call the "can do" attitude!!

I found the hotel to beat my expectations. Lobby does not meet my needs. Small and uncomfortable. Staff was superb. Friendly and very helpful. Room was small but very comfortable bed, excellent tv and clean bathroom. Room was better than expedited. Breakfast was the normal HI EXPRESS.

Good internet, great pillows, lousy mattress. In fact, the mattress was so bad that the springs were noisy and I could feel them through the cover - more suitable for a Best Western motel. Tiny rooms, but that's because of Manhattan.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 YOU WILL PAY FROM $35 - $50 EXTRA FOR PARKING
We were not told about parking fee until we arrived. We received a $35 parking voucher for parking 1/4 mile away. Ok. We had to deal with that. However, when we left, we were actually charged $50 for parking, because we had an "oversized" vehicle. No one at Holiday Inn told us about parking fee, nor, did they tell us that we would be charged an over sized fee. I would not have stayed there if I knew this. We were not reimbursed any parking fees.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 Horrible experience
The property and the amenities provided are a drab to the Holiday Inn Express brand. The front desk staff is indifferent and lacks motivation to provide good service to their guest. Additionally the property is very small for the number of rooms its caters to and more or less makes one feel claustrophobic. The queen beds are small for average size American and the linen is also generally not clean. The hotel also does not have a laundry machine.
Lastly, the breakfast area gets so crowded that it is impossible to have a good breakfast and one should forgo it even if it is offered free. In totality a horrible experience all together. Will never ever stay there again.
The only saving grace is the manager who tries to help guest and cover up for all shortfalls.

This Holiday Inn Express was great. It was 2 blocks from Times Square, Rockefeller Center, Grand Central Station,and Fox News. The staff was very friendly and helped us get around as first time NY visitors. When we go back to NYC, we will stay here.

When I got to the hotel at 6am due to a red-eye flight, I stood in front of a female staff named Maria, who was on the phone for probably a good ten minutes. When she was done, she didn't even ask me if I needed something, I still have to call her attention for my questions regarding my reservation.
When I got back to check-in, I was attended by a gentleman however when I was claiming my luggage from the storage, numerous staff passed by me as if I was standing for nothing. Two male staff even started having a conversation in front of me without asking me if I need assistance. It was only till I ask them who among them can accommodate opening the storage, pull out my luggage, so I can now go to my room and rest.
The next day around 5am, I went to the front desk to ask if he has a $100 dollar bill coz I needed my five $20s changed. He gave me a look that he didn't understand me.
I was really surprised on the service level of the staff of this hotel.

What a nice find in midtown! We had five rooms of friends and family who lucked into this little hotel in the thick of NYC. A gracious staff made sure we had rooms in proximity to each other, which was an added bonus. The rooms were small, but for the amount of time you're in them, quite reasonable. Beds were comfortable, the cleaning crew was efficient and worked around our crazy schedules. We had a great price for the City at Christmas time, too,and it was a convenient walk to everything!
