    I quite liked staying at Holiday Inn. Wouldn't term it a "four star" hotel but luxury enough and pretty affordable. Excellent location at 57th Midtown with all the major attractions in walking distance - Central Park, Broadway, Lincoln Center and main shopping areas. Nice staff, rooms have a 70s look but wireless in the rooms so no worries. I would recommend definitely for business or family trips. Good experience.

    The King room was very spacious for a New York Manhatan Hotel.

    Location very good, near Central Park. Bed good. Room size big enough.

    Bathroom small, quite old but clean. Pool closed at 6pm.

    The hotel was clean and comfortable. Location was great for the festival we were attending, a half a block away. Staff was great. Breakfast was delicious. Parking was convenient right under hotel.

    At 6:00 a.m., the parking attendant locked keys in a car and tried to break into it setting off the alarm outside of the window for about a half an hour. A lot of annoyed guests were woke up.

    The room was very comfortable, clean, staff very helpful and very easy to get around in NYC. We had breakfast at the hotel and it was worth every penny!

    Location - close to some great diners and the tube.

    This was pretty much the cheapest decent hotel I could find and I got what I expected, your typical holiday inn. Not too grubby, not amazingly clean. Massive. $15 drinks at the bar.

    I would like to commend the bellboys and the maintenace people who helped us enter our room after the safety latch closed as we shut the door. We also had problems with the TV and although the TV was not fixed until our last night, the maintenace men were extremely courteous.

    Whenever we made a request at the front desk, their response was, at times, extremely rude. Because of this, I would probably not want to stay at your hotel in the future. Some of the staff were very helpful, but those at the front desk left a great deal to be desired in the way of courtesy. I would recommend the hotel, but with caveats.

    I felt the amenities were exactly what I needed for the occasion - quickly in and out and with just the few services and facilities I needed. Easy to get to and clean.

  • Couple

    The location of The Holiday Inn is fantastic, just 2-3 blocks from Broadway, 4 blocks from Central Park and about 10 minutes from Times Square.

    We had a long wait for check-in despite arriving at 3PM, but this was resolved and didn't really affect our stay.

    It was reasonably priced for New York and centrally located.
