Historical Traveler Reviews Holiday Inn Midtown / 57th St New York City
I was really worried as I have heard numerous horror stories about NYC hotel rooms, so I was very pleasantly surprised when we arrived at the Holiday Inn Midtown. The Lobby was lovely and the staff very attentive and helpful. I agree with another reviewer who mentioned the hallways - they could really do with redecorating!!! The room was better than I could have expected, it was really large, the bed was comfy (although we didnt have enough pillows!) and best of all, it was spotless, as was the bathroom. The maids were lovely and gave us plenty of fresh towels and linen every day.
The shops and sights were all within easy reach, although it was maybe a bit further out of the centre than I would have liked. I second the recommendation for the Morning Star across the road and the Carnegie Deli is just round the corner.
I would recommend the hotel and would certainly stay there again!
Good location but...
This hotel had a great location; places to go within walking distance..however, the hotel was not all that clean, lots of splotches on the carpet in lobby, in hall and in room. Somewhat noisy too, with the way the doors slam when you go in and out. All in all, great location but not the classiest place you'll ever stay
Clean, comfortable, good location
The hotel is has clean, large rooms, (comfortable beds) most of which have recently been refurbished. It is in a quiet location within five minutes walk of the two main north/south subway lines. Staff were polite, everything worked (although air conditioning a bit underpowered for the size of the room) and I would certainly stay there again. NB Morning Star Cafe across the road is THE place for breakfast!
Nice, reasonably priced hotel in good location
I would definitely stay at this hotel again. It's in a great location - down on W. 57th where it's a little quieter, yet within walking distance to Lincoln Center, Times Square and other tourist attractions.
There are several cafes nearby to have breakfast. I usually avoid what I think are overpriced hotel restaurants. The rooms are generously sized for New York and quite nice. I got the best rate at the hotel's own website with a 21 day advance reservation. I'll never book a room again without checking TripAdvisor first. It helped me avoid some awful places. Don't always believe what you read and see on a hotel's website. Check TripAdvisor!!!!!
We made our reservations quite a while in advance and requested 2 adjoining rooms but when we arrived were told none were available. The rooms were nice with the exception of an odor in one of the rooms. They came in and sprayed some heavy smelling room deodorizer that just made it more nausiating. The carpets could have used a good cleaning. Other than that the rooms were decorated nicely and we had a good view from our window.
The restaurant was convenintly located in the hotel. We only ate there once, the first morning for breakfast. One of the spoons and one fork had been left from a previous diner and still had coffee on the spoon and syrup on the fork. When ask if we could get clean ones the waiter was quite rude.
The parking attendant was also a jerk. When I gave him our parking stub he threw it back at me and told me I had to get it signed at the front desk. He was not pleasant at all.
We liked the location. It was just a couple of blocks from the Hard Rock Cafe. We were able to walk to quite a few places and where we couldn't walk we took cabs or buses.
Not too sure if we will stay at this particular hotel next visit to NYC.
Lovely hotel, with a fab location. Rooms were large and very accomodating with a very efficient maid service. Only dissapointment was the closed rooftop pool from the 1st of September for 2 weeks with no warning. Or if you were desperate to use it you could pay a $30 daily charge for each individual..a bit pricey! Check out Morning Star cafe across the road on the corner of 8th avenue...fab for breakfast.
Ask for renovated room on upper floors
Stayed for a week in July on 6th floor B tower. Room very large. Bed large, comfortable, clean. Bathroom small but clean. Plenty of clean towels. Carpet (and some furniture) was shabby but wallpaper was nice.
Didn't realise until end of stay that rooms on higher floors had been renovated - new carpets etc. Ask for these rooms - 8th, 9th and 10th floors. (7th floor was being done at the time.) Staff were helpful although I didn't bother them much. No lines at desk either. Area was very pleasant.
Great rates for this location. Staff very helpful. Spacious rooms, but the whole hotel needs a deep cleaning. Prices at lounge and restaurants are expensive.
Holiday Inn 57th Street provides spacious + clean rooms with good views (choose North Tower rooms). Rates are ok for this location, though staff could have been more helpful sometimes. Only three blocks from Lincoln center. Would go there again.
Holiday Inn 57th Street
Terrific bargain hotel. Above average service and accomadations for a upper midtown 3 star hotel. Only exception to great service would be in the hotel restaurant. Slow service but good food for the money.

New York! We set the alarm early and, after breakfast, went to pick up the New York Passes Ruth had ordered before we left the UK. The office was a short walk from the hotel and we arrived to find no queue. We were persuaded to spend a little extra on upgrading to a VIP bus pass which allowed us to jump the queues when jumping on the tour busses.< …

We woke on the train this morning, for the last time before we reached New York. The journey from Chicago is just under 1000 miles so the total journey is around 3200 miles.
