“Superbly situated”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 June 2012

Although the rooms are on the small side, all the facilities are included. Comfortable beds, air conditioning and a good bathroom.

The elevator/lift can sometimes struggle in busy times, as there are only 2, and they are shared by the house-keeping staff.

The complimentary breakfast buffet is welcome, and the warm cinammon rolls are particularly good.

A well located and good value stay, 5 minutes from Times Square and 1 minure from 5th Avenue.

Room Tip: Request a room with a/c if visiting in the summer.

The best thing about this hotel is that it's in a great location. Times Square, Empire State, the subway, restaurants and shopping are all a short walk away. It's pretty easy to get from here to all the main NY attractions you would want to go to. However, as many others have stated it is small. We had 2 adults and 2 teenage children in our room and it was a bit of a squeeze! Nevertheless, since we were out and about a lot of the time it didn't bother us too much. The lobby is small too and since this is also the breakfast area it can get crowded in the morning. You may have to wait to get a table to eat and also there was often a queue for the elevator. However, the free breakfast was fine and it set us up for a day of sightseeing.

Despite the small size of the rooms I would concider this hotel again on a return trip to NY.

Within its category, the "Holiday Inn Express Fifth Avenue" is the perfect hotel for New York sightseeing trips! Some of the places within short walking distance include: Rockefeller Center, Times Square / Broadway theaters, Grand Central, St.Patrick's Cathedral, MoMa, and Bryant Park (great during the summer!). In addition, you can also reach several subway lines quite easily by walking.

You know you have to expect small rooms in the middle of Manhattan, of course. But they manage to fit a surprising amount of amenities into that limited space, including a king-size bed, an ironing board, a flatscreen TV, and a coffee-maker. Wireless internet is included (which is very convenient), and there's also computer/internet access on the lower level (with a printer). Air-conditioning always worked well. Rooms/bathrooms were clean, beds made every day.

Breakfast (which was included) might get crowded occasionally, however, we were always able to find space for the 4 people in our party every morning (even on Saturday on Memorial Day weekend). You can choose from a wide selection of different kinds of food that should suit everyone's tastes. It's obviously cafeteria-style rather than a restaurant, but that makes it convenient to start off your day fast, but with a full breakfast.

Front desk staff, notably Madeline, was always helpful and friendly. On the day of departure, it was kindly offered to stow our luggage for the day at no additional charge.

I recommend this hotel.
