good location but really small rooms

I really didn't spend that much time in the hotel, but the time I did spend was OK. The room was very small for 4 people and a lot of luggage. And the location was very good, near Times Square, but at night 39th st. and 8th av. it's not so nice to walk, especially for women alone.

Holiday Inn Express 39th street NYC

This was the worst hotel experience of my life. I have stayed in plenty of different Holiday Inn Express locations, in not-so-nice cities, and have enjoyed great service and accommodations. You would expect nothing less going somewhere as popular as New York City. The staff members were inattentive and rude. Upon arrival, we were told our bags would be "safely" held until check-in. The "safe" place was the middle of the hotel lobby where anyone at any time could have taken our belongings. On check-in, which was supposed to be 3pm, our rooms were not ready. We waited until 4:30pm to receive the key. The following morning, following the way overcrowded breakfast, some family members and friends got on the elevator to return to the room on the 21st floor. The elevator began to act up, proceeding to free fall from the 15th to the 3rd floor. The people on the elevator were then stuck for almost an hour by the time the non-english- speaking maintenance man pried the doors open BETWEEN the 3rd and 4th floors, requiring everyone to JUMP below to safety. Mind you, the only other available elevator was already out of order. SO, WE HAD TO WALK UP 21 FLIGHTS OF STAIRS. The hotel not only was not there to apologize for the incident, we had to seek out management to complain. The hotel manager was NOT working on a weekend, nor did he ever show his face. Thank goodness no one was seriously injured. Upon speaking to the manager, he merely vaguely apologized, promising to take care of the situation, while we never got anything in writing. I can only tell anyone who plans to stay here, it is NOT NEW. It is obviously newly renovated. It is several blocks from Times Square. It is VERY SMALL AND CROWDED. You will be disappointed. And I honestly hope no one has to experience the traumatic elevators, considering the hotel staff was not at all worried about fixing the problem.

Pleasant Surprise

Location was very convenient to trains, restaurants and entertainment. Staff was great. Beds were a bit short, but I'm 6'6", so I run into that alot. I was on the 35th floor, so it was pleasantly quiet being away from street level. I'll definately return!

Great stay

This was a great hotel. The staff was extremely friendly. Very clean, neat, attractive rooms. Rooms a little small. Good location to everything we wanted to see around Times Square and good access to subway. Continental breakfast had a good variety of things to choose from. Free internet access was nice. Only things that make me hesitate to give this 5 stars is the size of the room and the very small area in which to get breakfast (hard with so many people). Otherwise this was a very enjoyable stay and would recommend it.

Money-saving tip: Not Applicable

Be careful about what you are really paying for things. There may be a sign on something that says $5 but when it's all said and done it will be $15. There are a lot of "hidden" expenses everywhere when dealing with street vendors and such. Just know what you will actually be paying before you agree to buy.

Ideal location near times square

Close proximity to Times Square makes the hotel an ideal location especially for buisness travellers. The hotel itself is neat and clean with an affordable price tag compared to the hotels in the vicinity and also for those who would like to stay closer to times square. Another plus point about the hotel is complimentary breakfast. The only drawback is that the rooms are very small.

Time-saving tip: Short walk from hotel

If it is your first time in New York you must PURCHASE the CitySites bus tours to see everything first! After seeing the entire city, you then have access to all of the stops, unlimited for the duration of your vaca! (Depending on what package you buy from the tour) The best value!

A fresh, new hotel near Times Square

This is a new 36-story hotel built on a very narrow lot. The entrance is quite unassuming, but inside it offers all of the excellent ameneties that you would expect from a Holiday Inn Express. Rooms are very compact, but clean and modern. There are only 4 to 6 rooms per floor. We were on the top floor and had a great view of the skyline and the river and were far away from the traffic noise. The staff was unusually courteous and helpful. Continental breakfast was excellent and consisted of more than your usual coffee and rolls. It included pre-made omelets and bacon, among other offerings. Our only complaint is that there are only two elevators and one was out of order when we were there, leading to relatively long waits.
