Tucked away down a side street between 10th and 11th Avenue near to the Hudson River this was a good location if you are happy to walk, once you get your bearings as to where we were in Manhattan.
Rooms were compact but adequate - we were on 9th floor, although the gap under the door allowed the noise of other guests on the corridor come into our room.
Beds were comfortable and bathroom was again small but really as expected for New York, considering the price.
Breakfast area was busy but food plentiful and enough choice to fill up for the day. The included buffet breakfast is unusual in my experience and saves a bit of time if you are on a tight schedule which tourists usually are. Staff are particularly attentive and Farrell in particular was very friendly and helpful.

Given that I wanted at least three star in mid town Manhattan for less than 150GBP inc tax I knew corners would need to be cut somewhere.
This was value for money on the whole although the breakfast (especially how crowded the area was) was poor.

Great location (short walk to Broadway and Times Square.), VERY clean, attentive and courteous and attentive staff. Bathroom sink counter space very small but overall even though small, bathroom acceptable. Breakfast maybe not gourmet but a good variety of items. Would definitely return. The outside patio is a real plus to sit and relax

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Hey There Overall below expectations
For the amount I paid for the room, I had much higher expectations. The neighborhood was poor, the room was tiny, there were no amenities beyond a free lousy breakfast and the staff was not top notch.
I questioned my bill and why my credit card was charged in advance. The answer I received made sense but was not explained to me when I made my reservation and negotiated my rate. The pillows were very uncomfortable and the TV connection went out and there was no resolution.

The Holiday Inn Express on 48th Street in NYC is a great place to stay in NYC for its location and staff. I stay at many IHG properties as a loyal Platinum Member. I choose this stop for the location mainly as I visit several times a year for business and seeing relatives. The rooms are small but very clean and efficient. The staff is welcoming and very attentive to the customer needs. I especially want to single out Farrel who was attendant on staff during our stay. Farrel was working in the breakfast room area. He was very professional, courteous and pleasant. As a frequent traveler I look for several things in a hotel…. Cleanliness, location, and courteous and helpful staff. This IHG property has them all. Congrats!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Rachael1 Incredible hotel
My husband and I were both super impressed with the service, location, and cleanliness of this hotel. We were greeted with a warm welcome when we arrived. Our room wasn't ready because we about 3 hours early for check-in. The staff tagged our luggage and held onto it until we arrived back that evening. The rooms were bigger than we had expected and we had an excellent view of the city. The breakfast exceeded our expectations. We were able to choose from eggs, bacon, sausage, biscuits and gravy, fruit, cereal, muffins, pancakes, waffles, yogurt, etc. We were able to walk to Times Square every day and felt very comfortable walking back to the hotel in the late hours of the evening. I highly recommend this hotel and would stay again.
